Calm you look on, and see the furious foe
Plunge crowds of heroes to the shades below!"
The first of the Trojan youth were the chief, the most illustrious; so we say the first men of the kingdom for the nobles, etc.

"You are to be my holy people. So do not eat the meat of an animal torn by wild beasts; throw it to the dogs.
Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons,
for you are a people holy to the LORD your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the LORD has chosen you to be his treasured possession.
"But if you turn away and ally yourselves with the survivors of these nations that remain among you and if you intermarry with them and associate with them,
Therefore, do not give your daughters in marriage to their sons or take their daughters for your sons. Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them at any time, that you may be strong and eat the good things of the land and leave it to your children as an everlasting inheritance.'
