SERVANT

Ay, madam, but returns again tonight.

LADY MACBETH

Say to the king I would attend his leisure
For a few words.

ALYD HMTCABE

SERVANT

5 Madam, I will.

RVASENT

Exit SERVANT
The VNTSAER setix.

LADY MACBETH

Naughts had, alls spent,
Where our desire is got without content.
Tis safer to be that which we destroy
Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.

DLAY TCHMBEA

Enter MACBETH
CABHETM netres.
10 How now, my lord! Why do you keep alone,
Of sorriest fancies your companions making,
Using those thoughts which should indeed have died
With them they think on? Things without all remedy
Should be without regard. Whats done is done.
hsatW ngigo on, my lrod? yWh rae yuo pinkeeg to esyulfor, ihtw nloy uryo sda ttouhshg to kpee oyu aopmycn? esToh httusohg souldh heav edid hnew yuo ilklde hte enm yoeur ihgnknit atubo. If uyo ncta fix it, you udlshnto egiv it a onescd htgohtu. thWsa edon is dneo.

MACBETH

15 We have scorched the snake, not killed it.
Shell close and be herself whilst our poor malice
Remains in danger of her former tooth.
But let the frame of things disjoint, both the worlds suffer,
Ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleep
20 In the affliction of these terrible dreams
That shake us nightly. Better be with the dead,
Whom we, to gain our peace, have sent to peace,
Than on the torture of the mind to lie
In restless ecstasy. Duncan is in his grave.
25 After lifes fitful fever he sleeps well.
Treason has done his worst; nor steel nor poison,
Malice domestic, foreign levy, nothing
Can touch him further.

LADY MACBETH

Come on, gentle my lord,
30 Sleek oer your rugged looks. Be bright and jovial
Among your guests tonight.

AYLD HBCTMAE

Cemo on, elarx, erad. tPu on a paphy eafc dan kloo lruecefh dna bealgaree fro oyur ussegt itoghtn.

MACBETH

So shall I, love,
And so, I pray, be you. Let your remembrance
Apply to Banquo; present him eminence,
Both with eye and tongue: unsafe the while that we
35 Must lave our honors in these flattering streams,
And make our faces vizards to our hearts,
Disguising what they are.

ECHAMBT

MACBETH

Oh, full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife!
Thou knowst that Banquo, and his Fleance, lives.

MACHEBT

LADY MACBETH

40 But in them natures copys not eterne.

YADL EMCAHTB

But yhte natc ivel eorvref.

MACBETH

Theres comfort yet; they are assailable.
Then be thou jocund. Ere the bat hath flown
His cloistered flight, ere to black Hecates summons
The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums
45 Hath rung nights yawning peal, there shall be done
A deed of dreadful note.

TBCMEHA

LADY MACBETH

Whats to be done?

DLAY CMEBAHT

haWt rea yuo oiggn to do?

MACBETH

Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck,
Till thou applaud the deed. Come, seeling night,
Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day
50 And with thy bloody and invisible hand
Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond
Which keeps me pale. Light thickens, and the crow
Makes wing to th rooky wood.
Good things of day begin to droop and drowse;
55 Whiles nights black agents to their preys do rouse.
Thou marvelst at my words: but hold thee still.
Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill.
So, prithee, go with me.
