Context

“Speak to his gentle hearing kind commends. [To AUMERLE] We do debase ourselves, cousin, do we not, To look so poorly and to speak so fair? Shall we call back Northumberland, and send Defiance to the traitor, and so die? AUMERLE. No, good my lord; let's fight with gentle words
Till time lend friends, and friends their helpful swords. KING RICHARD. O God, O God! that e'er this tongue of mine
That laid the sentence of dread banishment On yon proud man should take it off again” source
