I'm glad to meet Godfrey's son.
He was one of my greatest teachers.
He was there when playing with the other boys my arm was cut
and it was he, not my father's physicians, who noticed that I felt no pain.
He wept when he gave my father the news
that I am a leper.
The Saracens say that this disease is God's vengeance
against the vanity of our kingdom.
★As wretched as I am,★ the Arabs believe the chastisement that awaits me in hell
is far more severe ★and lasting.★
If that's true, I'd call it unfair. （I'd = I would）
When I was sixteen, I won a great victory.
I felt in that moment I would live to be a hundred.
Now I know I shall not see thirty.
You see, none of us choose our end really.
A king may move a man. A father may claim a son.
But remember that even when those who move you be kings or men of power,
your soul is in ★your keeping alone.★
When you stand before God, you cannot say
"but I was told by others to do thus," or （that）
"virtue was not convenient at that time".
This will not suffice.
Balian: I will.
Then go out now to your father's house at Ibelin,
And from there protect the pilgrim road. Protect the helpless.
And then perhaps one day, when I am helpless,
you will come to protect me.
