Homework Help: helllpppp english romeo and juliet

Posted by kim on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 11:38pm.

what do they mean? could you please change into a modern language?
If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand(100)
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.
Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this;
For saints have hands that pilgrims¡¯ hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers¡¯ kiss.(105)
Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?
Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.
O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do!
They pray; grant thou, lest faith turn to despair
Saints do not move, though grant for prayers¡¯ sake.(110)
Then have my lips the sin that they have took.
Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urg'd!
Give me my sin again.
You kiss by th¡¯ book.
