Zeus father, impetuous, most powerful, principle of good things,
parent of everything; for your intelligence youíre far more the good for the existent,
and we arenít born without the good things that are in the Gods,
but, perforce of our mortal part,
we are also prone to make mistakes and always able to correct ourselves.
Allow us to be freed from the disgrace of mistakes
by mean of your children, to whom you assigned these things,
to move closer to the pure ones who have a right mind,
so that we can relate with you being always benevolent and propitious.
George Gemistos Plethon
