From forth this loathsome prison-house, to abide
redoubled love and care With nursing diligence, to me glad office, May ever tend about thee to old age
SAMs. No, no, of my condition take no care ;
Sams. Not for thy life, left fierce remembrance wake My sudden rage to tear thee joint by joint. At distance I forgive thee, go with that; Bewail thy falfhood, and the pious works
955 It hath brought forth to make thee memorable Among illustrious women, faithful wives : Cherish thy hasten d widowhood with the gold Of matrimonial treason: so farewel.
DAL. I see thou art implacable, more deaf 960 Το prayers, than winds and seas, yet winds to seas Are reconcil'd ať length, and sea to fhore : Thy anger, unappeasable, ftill rages, Eternal tempest never to be calm’d. Why do I humble thus myself, and fuing 965 For peace, reap nothing but repulse and hate ?
with evil omen and the brand Of infamy upon my name denounc'd ? To mix with thy concernments I desist Henceforth, nor too much disapprove my own. 970 Fame if not double-fac'd is double-mouthod, And with contrary blast proclames most' deeds ; On both his wings, one black, the other white, Bears greatest names in his wild aery flight. My name perhaps among the circumcis'd
975 In Dan, in Judah, and the bordering tribes, To all posterity may stand defam'd, With malediction mention'd, and the blot Of falfhood most unconjugal traduc'd. But in my country where I most desire,
980 In Ecron, Gaza, Aldod, and in Gath,
I shall be nam'd among the famoufest
995 I leave him to his lot, and like my own.
Cho. She's gone, a manifest serpent by her sting
SAMS. So let her go, God sent her to debase me,
Cho. Yet beauty, though injurious, hath strange After offense returning, to regain
[power, Love once possess’d, nor can be easily Repuls d, without much inward passion felt And secret sting of amorous remorse.
Sams. Love-quarrels oft in pleasing concord end, Not wedlock-treachery indangering life.
Cho. It is not virtue, wisdom, valor, wit, Strength, comeliness of shape, or amplest merit
That woman's love can win or long inherit;
If any of these or all, the Timnian bride
Whate'er it be, to wisest men and best
With dotage, and his sense deprav'd
Favor'd of Heav'n who finds
Therefore God's universal law Gave to the man deipotic power Over his female in due awe,
1055 Nor from that right to part an hour, Smile flie or lcur : So shall he least confusion draw On his whole life, not fway'd by female usurpation, or dismay'd.
1060 But had we best retire, I see a storm ?
Sams. Fair days have oft contracted wind and rain. Cho. But this another kind of tempelt brings. Sams. Be less abftrufe, my riddling days are past.
Cho. Look now for no inchanting voice, nor fear The bait of honied words; a rougher tongue Draws hitherward, I know him by his stride, The giant Harapha of Gath, his look Haughty as is his pile high-built and proud. Comes he in peace? what wind hath blown him hither I less conjecture than when first I saw
