SCENA V
Arbace solo

Recitativo

ARBACE
Sventurata Sidon! in te quai miro
Di morte, stragi, e orror lugubri aspetti?
Ah Sidon più non sei,
Sei la città del pianto, e questa reggia
Quella del duol! ... Dunque è per noi dal cielo
Sbandita ogni pietà?...
Chi sà? io spero ancora,
Che qualche Nume amico
Si plachi a tanto sangue; un Nume solo
Basta tutti a piegar; alla clemenza
Il rigor cederà... ma ancor non scorgo
Qual ci miri pietoso... Ah sordo è il cielo!
Ah Creta tutta io vedo
Finir sua gloria sotto alte rovine!
No, sue miserie pria non avran fine.

English Libretto or Translation:


FIFTH SCENE
Arbace alone

Recitative
ARBACE
Unhappy Sidon, what gloomy aspects of
destruction, horror and death do I see in you?
Ah, you are no longer Sidon,
you are the city of tears and this palace
that of sorrow! … Then does heaven
deny us all pity? … Who knows? I still hope
that some friendly god
will be satisfied with so much blood; a single god
could save us from all this. Severity
would yield to clemency … But as yet I do not know
who would look on us with pity … Ah, heaven is deaf!
I see all Crete ending
her glory deep in ruins!
No, ere this her miseries will not be ended!
