Nath. When in the world I liv’d, I was the world's
Biron. Take away the Conqueror, take away Alifander.
Cost. O Sir, you have overthrown Alisander the Conqueror. (to Nath.) You will be scraped out of the painted cloth for this; your lion, that holds the pollax fitting on a close-stool, will be given to A-jax; he will be then the ninth Worthy. A Conqueror, and afraid to speak ? run away for shame, Alisander. There, an't shall please you; a foolish mild man; an honeft
and soon dash'd. He is a marvellous good neighbour, insooth, and a very good bowler; but for Alifander, alas, you see, how 'tis a little o'erparted: but there are Worthies a coming will speak -their mind in some other sort.
Biron. Stand aside, good Pompey.
Thus did he strangle ferpents in his manus :
Hol. Judas I am.
Hol. Not Iscariot, Sir;
Dum. Judas Machabeus clipt, is plain Judas.
Dum. The more shame for you, Judas.
Biron. Ay, and worn in the cap of a tooth-drawer; And now, forward; for we have put thee in coun
go. And so adieu, sweet Jude; nay, why dost thou stay?
Dum. For the latter end of his name.
away: Hol. This is not generous, not gentle, not humble. Boyet. A light for monsieur Judas; it grows dark,
stumble. Prin. Alas! poor Machabeus, how he hath been baited!
Enter Armado. Biron. Hide thy head, Achilles, here coines Hector in arms. Dum. Tho' my mocks come home by me, I will
now be merry:
King. Hector was but a Trojan in respect of this.
Arm. The armipotent Mars, of launces the Almighty,
Dum. A gilt nutmeg.
Gave Hector a gift, the heir of Ilion;
From morn 'till night, out of his pavilion.
Dum. That mint.
Arm. Sweet lord Longaville, rein thy tongue.
Arm. The sweet War-man is dead and rotten;
Prin. Speak, brave Hector; we are much delighted.
Coft. The party is gone, fellow He&or, she is gone;
Arm. What mean'st thou?
poor wench is caft away ; she's quick, the child brags in her belly already. 'Tis yours.
Arm. Dost thou infamonize me among Potentates ? Thou shalt die.
Coft. Then shall Hemor be whipt for Jaquenetta, that is quick by him; and hang'd for Pompey, that is dead
Duni. Most rare Pompey!
Biron. Greater than great, great, great, great Pompey! Pompey the huge!
Dum. Hector trembles.
Biron. Pompey is mov'd; more Ates, more Ates ; ftir then on, stir them on.
Dum. Hector will challenge him.
Biron. Ay, if he have no more man's blood in's belly than will sup a blea.
Arm. By the north-pole, I do challenge thee.
Cost. I will not fight with a pole, like a northern man: I'll flash; I'll do't by the Sword: I pray you, let me borrow my arms again.
Dum. Room for the incensed Worthies.
Moth. Master, let me take you a button-hole lower. Do you not see, Pompey is uncaling for the combat: what mean you? you will lose your reputation.
Arm. Gentlemen, and foldiers, pardon me ; 'I will not combat in
shirt. Dum. You may not deny it, Pompey hath made the challenge.
Arm. Sweet bloods, I boih may and will..
Arm. The naked truth of it is, I have no shirt ; I go woolward for penance.
Boyet. True, and it was enjoined him in Rome for want of linen; since when,' I'll be sworn, he wore none but a dish-clout of Jaquenetta's, and that he wears next his heart for a Favour.

Enter Macard. Mac. OD save you, Madam!
Prin. Welcome, Macard, but that thou interruptest our merriment.
Mac. I'm sorry, Madam, for the news I bring Is heavy in my tongue. The King your fatherPrin. Dead, for my
life. Mac. Even so: my Tale is told. Biron. Worthies, away; the Scene begins to cloud.
Arm. For my own part, I breathe free breath ;* I have seen the day of right through the little hole of discretion, and I will right myself like a soldier.
(Exeunt Worthies. King. How fares your Majesty ? Prin. Boyet, prepare; I will away to night. King. Madam, not so; I do beleech you, itay,
Prin. Prepare, I say. I thank you, gracious lords, For all
fair endeavours; and entreat, Out of a new-fad foul, that
King. The extreme part of time extremely forms
* I have seen the days of wrong through the little hole of discretion,] This has no Meaning, we should read, the day of right, i. e. I have foreseen that a Day will come when I shall have Justice donc me, and therefore I prudently reserve myself for that Time.
