Reading Comprehension Question from the play Everyman (lines 22-79). 

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
