What We Get from Zeus

Homer, Iliad 14.85-87 (Odysseus to Agamemnon; tr. Peter Green):
                                                              [To us] Zeus
has given the task, from youth to old age, of winding
the skein of grim war, till we perish, every last man!

ἐκ νεότητος ἔδωκε καὶ ἐς γῆρας τολυπεύειν
ἀργαλέους πολέμους, ὄφρα φθιόμεσθα ἕκαστος.
