Jerome's Bible, Faustus; view it well.
[Reads] "Stipendium peccati mors est." Ha!
Stipendium, etc. The reward of sin is death. That's hard.
[Reads.] 'Si peccasse negamus, fallimur,
Et nulla est in nobis veritas.'
If we say that we have no sin,
We deceive ourselves, and there is no truth in us. (1.1.36-42)
Why, then, belike we must sin
And so consequently die.
Ay, we must die an everlasting death.
What doctrine call you this? Che serà, serà?
What will be, shall be? Divinity, adieu! (1.1.42-46)
Were he a stranger, not allied to me,
The danger of his soul would make me mourn.
But, come, let us go and inform the Rector.
It may be his grave counsel may reclaim him.
I fear me nothing will reclaim him now. (1.3.32-36)
