Reading Comprehension Question from the play Everyman (lines 22­79). GOD: I perceive here in my majesty, How that all the creatures be to me unkind, Living without dread in worldly prosperity: Of ghostly sight the people be so blind, Drowned in sin, they know me not for their God; In worldly riches is all their mind. They fear not my righteousness, the sharp rod. My law that I showed, when I for them died, They forget clean, and shedding of my blood red; I hanged between two, it cannot be denied; To get them life I suffered to be dead; I healed their feet, with thorns hurt was my head. I could do no more than I did, truly; And now I see the people do clean forsake me. They use the seven deadly sins damnable, As pride, covetise, wrath, and lechery Now in the world be made commendable; And thus they leave of angels the heavenly company. Every man liveth so after his own pleasure, And yet of their life they be nothing sure: I see the more that I them forbear The worse they be from year to year. … I hoped well that every man In my glory should make his mansion, And thereto I had them all elect; But now I see, like traitors deject, They thank me not for the pleasure that I to them meant, Nor yet for their being that I them have lent; I proffered the people great multitude of mercy, And few there be that asketh it heartily; They be so cumbered with worldly riches That needs on them I must do justice, On every man living without fear. Where art thou, Death, thou mighty messenger? [Enter Death] DEATH: Almighty God, I am here at your will, Your commandment to fulfill. GOD: Go thou to Everyman, And show him, in my name, A pilgrimage he must … take … And that he bring with him a sure reckoning DEATH: Lord, I will in the world go run overall, And cruelly outsearch both great and small; Everyman will I beset that liveth beastly Out of God’s laws, and dreadeth not folly. He that loveth riches I will strike with my dart, His sight to blind, and from heaven to depart­­ Except that alms be his good friend­­ In hell for to dwell, world without end
