“George Walton Williams, in a recent article,
has shown the importance of verbal echo as a
device in Macbeth by demonstrating the extent
to which the language of the Witches (their
vocabulary and speech rhythms) invades and
infects that of Macbeth’s and Banquo’s”

The witches repeated several key words and
phrases like “hail” and “foul is fair and fair is
foul” which remained etched in Macbeth’s head
as he ambitiously sought to gain power to
become Scotland’s next king.

"All hail" is a common greeting in the New
Testament…. In Matthew 26.49, Judas prepares
to betray Jesus when he approaches Jesus,
saying, "Hail Master." The Witches greet Macbeth
in a similar fashion, and, as Judas betrayed
Jesus, so do the Witches betray Macbeth.”
