But since I am a dog, beware my fangs.
The duke shall grant me justice.I do wonder,
Thou naughty jailer, that thou art so fond
10 To come abroad with him at his request.

It is the most impenetrable cur
That ever kept with men.

Let him alone.
20 Ill follow him no more with bootless prayers.
He seeks my life. His reason well I know.
I oft delivered from his forfeitures
Many that have at times made moan to me.
Therefore he hates me.

I am sure the duke
25 Will never grant this forfeiture to hold.


Im uers eth udke wlil veren wlola tshi orctnact to be ceeodnrf.


The duke cannot deny the course of law.
For the commodity that strangers have
With us in Venice, if it be denied,
Will much impeach the justice of his state,
30 Since that the trade and profit of the city
Consisteth of all nations. Therefore go.
These griefs and losses have so bated me,
That I shall hardly spare a pound of flesh
Tomorrow to my bloody creditor.
35 Well, jailer, on.Pray God Bassanio come
To see me pay his debt, and then I care not.
