Then Satan tells him to throw himself off the mountain and angels with catch him.

We find the sweetheart we've longed for only to find out that he is not so sweet. Our Saviour, meek, and with untroubled mind After his aerie jaunt, though hurried sore, Hungry and cold, betook him to his rest, Wherever, under some concourse of shades, Whose branching arms thick intertwined might shield From dews and damps of night his sheltered head; But, sheltered, slept in vain; for at his head The Tempter watched, and soon with ugly dreams Disturbed his sleep. A complexity that is less in their structure John Milton's poems are much more than the epic account of the Fall of Man and the redemption brought by Jesus Christ.
And now the sun with more effectual beams Had cheered the face of earth, and dried the wet From drooping plant, or dropping tree; the birds, Who all things now behold more fresh and green, After a night of storm so ruinous, Cleared up their choicest notes in bush and spray, To gratulate the sweet return of morn.

But why should man seek glory, who of his own Hath nothing, and to whom nothing belongs But condemnation, ignominy, and shame— Who, for so many benefits received, Turned recreant to God, ingrate and false, And so of all true good himself despoiled; Yet, sacrilegious, to himself would take That which to God alone of right belongs? Thy pompous delicacies I contemn, 390 And count thy specious gifts no gifts, but guiles. Allerdings ist der Täter raffinierter, als sie denken - und spielt auch mit ihnen sein gefährliches Spiel.
