help of a brother, as the proverb says;(6) and thus do you, if your brother has overlooked anything, help him to supply his omissions. And yet for my part, Glaucon has already said enough to overthrow me and to render me incapable of defending justice."
" You are jesting," replied Adeimantus; " listen also to what I have to say. For we must go through with the arguments, which, being contrary to the statements of Glaucon, commend justice and censure injustice, in order to make more manifest what I believe to be his meaning. And I suppose when parents tell and exhort their sons, and all kinds of guardians instruct their wards that it is a duty incumbent upon them to be just, it is not justice in its essence that is praised, but the repute that follows it, in order that the man who seems to be just may obtain from his good name offices and marriages and all which Glaucon has just now mentioned as coming to the unjust man from his reputation. Now these carry the advantage of reputation still further ; for throwing in the good opinion of the gods they have countless benefits to enumerate which, as they say, the gods bestow upon the pious, as the excellent Hesiod and Homer tell us; the former that the gods cause the oaks for the just ` to produce acorns at the top and in the middle bees, and their woolladen sheep are weighed down with fleeces,(7) with many other good things like these. Homer in a similar strain speaks of one ` like a blameless king
