Mine own familiar friend hath betrayed me
with a kiss whomsoever I shall kiss, the
same is he, hold him fast.
This wicked sign he gave:
who with a kiss hath brought about my death.
Unhappy man he threw down the price of blood:
and in the end hanged himself.
It had been good for that man if he had not been born.
Unhappy man he threw down the price of blood:
and in the end, hanged himself.
