To boast what arms can do? since thine no more
Than Heaven permits, nor mine, though doubled now To trample thee as mire: for proof look up,
And read thy lot in yon celestial sign,
Where thou art weigh'd, and shown how light, how weak,
If thou resist.' The fiend look'd up, and knew
Murmuring, and with him fled the shades of night.
