MALCOLM: Macduff, this passionate outburst, which proves your integrity, has removed my doubts about you. You truly are trustworthy and honorable.
That devil Macbeth has tried many times to trick me and lure me into his power, and prudence prevents me from believing people too quickly. But with God as my witness, I will let myself be guided by you, and I take back my confession.
All those sins I laid against myself—they're all lies. I have never been with a woman. I have never lied. I barely care about the things I already own, let alone covet what belongs to other men. I have never broken a promise and wouldn't betray the devil himself. I love truth as I love life. The lies I told you about my character were the first untruths I have ever uttered. I stand here as my true self, ready to serve you and our poor country.
Indeed, before you even arrived here, old Siward and ten thousand battle-ready soldiers had begun making their way here. Now we will fight Macbeth together, and may the chances of our success be as great as the justice of our cause! Why are you silent?
MACDUFF: It is hard to make sense of two such different tales,
MALCOLM: Well, we'll speak more soon.
