ICEL (1970) Renditions #2: Portia's speech from The Merchant of Venice

The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven,
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
The Merchant Of Venice Act 4, scene 1, 180–187


ICEL:

Please don't be a meanie, it's horrid. Everyone likes you when you're nice to people, yeah?
