CORO
(sotto voce, osservandolo)
E che avvenne? - A chi parla?... ei delira...
Geme... smania... affannoso sospira...
Che mai turba, atterrisce quel cor!
(accostandosi a lui)
Ah! Signore!... Assur!...

ASSUR
(con voce sommessa)
Tacete.
(Nell'attitudine in cui rimase)
Oh!... fuggite -

CORO
Su, ti scuoti. -

ASSUR
Ei minaccia... lo vedete!...

CORO
Chi?...

ASSUR
V'รจ ancor? -

CORO
Tu sol con noi
Qui tu sei.

English Libretto or Translation:

CHOIR
(under the heading, observing him)
And what happened? - Who's talking? ... and the delirious ...
Geme ... hungry ... panting sighs ...
What never troubles, it horrifies that cor!
(approaching him)
Ah! Sir! ... Assur! ...

ASSUR
(with a subdued voice)
Be still.
(In the attitude in which he remained)
Oh! ... run away -

CHOIR
Come on, you shake. -

ASSUR
You threaten ... you see it! ...

CHOIR
Who?...

ASSUR
Is there still? -

CHOIR
You alone with us
Here you are.
