Enter the DUKE, the magnificoes,
ANTONIO, BASSANIO, GRATIANO,
SALERIO, and others
What, is Antonio here?
Ready, so please your grace.
I am sorry for thee. Thou art come to answer
A stony adversary, an inhuman wretch
5Uncapable of pity, void and empty
From any dram of mercy.
I have heard
Your grace hath ta'en great pains to qualify
His rigorous course. But since he stands obdurate
And that no lawful means can carry me
10Out of his envy’s reach, I do oppose
My patience to his fury, and am armed
To suffer with a quietness of spirit
The very tyranny and rage of his.
Go, one, and call the Jew into the court.
15He is ready at the door. He comes, my lord.
