Der bestrafte Brudermord (Fratricide Punished)

290King. A church and altar.
[Alone] Now my conscience begins to awaken: the sting of my treachery begins to prick me hard. It is time I turn to repentance, and confess to Heaven the evil I have done. I fear that my guilt is so great, that it could never be forgiven. Yet I will pray fervently to the gods, that they will pardon my great sins.
[He kneels before the altar.]
