Please choose one of the following passages then translate it.


A. We learn what exactly Minerva is weaving.
Bis sex caelestes medio Iove sedibus altis
augusta gravitate sedent. Sua quemque deorum
inscribit facies: Iovis est regalis imago.
Stare deum pelagi longoque ferire tridente
aspera saxa facit, medioque e vulnere saxi
exsiluisse fretum, quo pignore vindicet urbem;
at sibi dat clipeum, dat acutae cuspidis hastam,
dat galeam capiti, defenditur aegide pectus,
percussamque sua simulat de cuspide terram
edere cum bacis fetum canentis olivae
mirarique deos: operis Victoria finis.

B. In the beginning, there was Chaos and everything was diametrically opposed.
utque aer, tellus illic et pontus et aether.
Sic erat instabilis tellus, innabilis unda,
lucis egens aer: nulli sua forma manebat,
obstabatque aliis aliud, quia corpore in uno
frigida pugnabant calidis, umentia siccis,
mollia cum duris, sine pondere habentia pondus.
Hanc deus et melior litem natura diremit.
Nam caelo terras et terris abscidit undas,
et liquidum spisso secrevit ab aere caelum.
Quae postquam evolvit caecoque exemit acervo,
dissociata locis concordi pace ligavit.
C. Midas gets Hungry, Hilarity ensues.
Huic deus optandi gratum sed inutile! fecit
muneris arbitrium, gaudens altore recepto.
Ille, male usurus donis, ait Effice, quicquid
corpore contigero, fulvum vertatur in aurum.
Adnuit optatis nocituraque munera solvit
Liber et indoluit quod non meliora petisset. . . 105
. . . Gaudenti mensas posure ministri
exstructas dapibus nec tostae frugis egentes: 120
tum, vero, sive ille su Cerealia dextr
munera contigerat, Cerealia dona rigebant,
,sive dapes avido convellere dente parabat,
lammina fulva dapes admoto dente premebat;
miscuerat puris auctorem muneris undis: 125
fusile per ricts aurum fluitare videres.

ter quarter Idmoniae frontem percussit Arachns.


non tulit infelix, laqueoque animosa ligavit
guttura: pendentem Pallas miserata levavit 135
atque ita Vive quidem, pende tamen, improba, dixit
lexque eadem poenae, ne sis secura futuri,
dicta tuo generi serisque nepotibus esto!
post ea discedens sucis Hecateidos herbae
sparsit et extemplo tristi medicamine. Tactae 140
defluxere comae, cum quis et naris et aures,
fitque caput minimum, toto quoque corpore parva est:
in latere exiles digiti pro cruribus haerent,
cetera venter habet: de quo tamen illa remittit
stamen, et antiquas exercet aranea telas.

Are we forever doomed to not have a full understanding of Roman writings due to our culture
being based on different principles and our own cultures obsession with details over the moral
of a story.?
