MALCOLM
Now near enough. Your leafy screens throw down,
And show like those you are.—You, worthy uncle,
Shall, with my cousin, your right-noble son,
Lead our first battle. Worthy Macduff and we
Shall take upon 's what else remains to do,
According to our order.

MALCOLM
We're close enough. Throw down these branches and let all see who you really are. Worthy uncle Siward, you and your noble son will lead the first attack. Brave Macduff and I will do the rest, as we worked out in our plan of attack.



SIWARD
Fare you well.
Do we but find the tyrant's power tonight,
Let us be beaten if we cannot fight.

SIWARD
Farewell. If we meet Macbeth's army tonight, let us be beaten if we cannot fight.

MACDUFF
Make all our trumpets speak; give them all breath,
Those clamorous harbingers of blood and death.

MACDUFF
With all your breath blow the trumpets, those deafening heralds of blood and death.

Exeunt

They exit.
