The Titans having been released from those bonds under your hands, o Lord  (Transl. E. Bianchelli)   EGM p. 47

Paian. 4.35-53 – pp. 23-24

I approve the words of lord
who refused to rule over the Cretans, although they
were eager,
and to share a seventh part of one hundred
cities with the sons of Pasiphaë.
But he told them his own omen:
“Truly I fear war
with Zeus and I fear loud-rumbling Earthshaker.
With their thunderbolt and trident they once
sent the land and all the people
into deep Tartarus, sparing my mother
and the entire well-fenced house.
Then, am I to pursue wealth and reject as totally void
this land’s ordinance from the blessed gods,
in order to have a great inheritance elsewhere? Too
would be my constant
fear. Give up, my mind, the cypress tree,
give up the pasture land around Ida.

To me has been given a small (portion?) of bush(?) . . .
but I have been allotted no sorrows, no civil strife.  EGM p. 270 lower
