I will go, once I have said what I came here to say. I will never shrink from the anger in your eyes- you can't destroy me. Listen to me closely: the man you have sought for so long, proclaiming, cursing up and down, the murderer of Laius- he is here. A stranger, you may think, who lives among you, he soon will be revealed a native Theban but he will take no joy in the revelation. Blind who now has eyes, beggar who now is rich, he will grope his way toward a foreign soil, A stick tapping before him step by step. Revealed at last, brother and father both to the children he embraces, to his mother son and husband both - he sowed the loins his father sowed, he spilled his father's blood! Go in and reflect on that, solve that. And if you find I've lied from this day onward call the prophet blind.
