Were they not forced with those that should be ours,We might have met them dareful, beard to beard,And beat them backward home. The English army grew with Macbeth’s own soldiers
I have supped full with horrors.Direness, familiar to my slaughterous thoughtsCannot once start me. A cry within of women
Lady Macbeth is dead That news was bound to come someday.

Liar and slave! Messenger
Within this three mile may you see it coming;I say, a moving grove. Birnam Wood is moving closer
I ‘gin to be aweary of the sun,And wish th’ estate o’ th’ world were now undone.—Ring the alarum-bell!—Blow, wind! Come, wrack!At least we’ll die with harness on our back. Let the battle commence
Uncle Siward, you and your son will lead the first battle. Brave Macduff and I will do the rest, according to our battle plan. Malcolm
Blood and death Blow all the trumpets
What’s heThat was not born of woman? Such a oneAm I to fear, or none. Macbeth
The devil himself could not pronounce a titleMore hateful to mine ear. Young Siward
Macbeth kills You disgusting tyrant
If thou beest slain, and with no stroke of mine,My wife and children’s ghosts will haunt me still. Macduff seeks to murder Macbeth
We have met with foesThat strike beside us. Our enemies fight as if they’re trying not to hurt us.
Whiles I see lives, the gashesDo better upon them. Why should I play the Roman fool and dieOn mine own sword?
Of all men else I have avoided thee.But get thee back. My soul is too much chargedWith blood of thine already. Macbeth admits to killing Macduff’s family
I have no words.My voice is in my sword. Thou bloodier villainThan terms can give thee out!
Macduff and Macbeth Fight
Thou losest labor.As easy mayst thou the intrenchant airWith thy keen sword impress as make me bleed.Let fall thy blade on vulnerable crests;I bear a charmèd life, which must not yieldTo one of woman born. Macduff was from his mother’s wombUntimely ripped.
And be these juggling fiends no more believed,That palter with us in a double sense,That keep the word of promise to our ear,And break it to our hope. I won’t fight you
Then yield thee, coward,And live to be the show and gaze o’ th’ time. Macduff asks Macbeth to surrender

Hail, King of Scotland! Malcolm
My thanes and kinsmen, I name you all earls, the first earls that Scotland has ever had. Macbeth is dead
Who, as ’tis thought, by self and violent handsTook off her life Lady Macbeth committed suicide
So, thanks to all at once and to each one,Whom we invite to see us crowned at Scone. Malcolm wins the fight and is crowned King of Scotland
Earls A new title in Scotland
Make us even settle our accounts
knell is knelled death bell is rung
Prowess Bravery
To kiss the ground to surrender
