Ben-hur invade Messala´s office with a spear.
Send them out.
Send them out.
Messala gives the order for centurions get it out and close the door.
Where are my mother and sister?
Where are they?
Here, within these walls.
The governor is recovering.
They won´t die.
Of course, they will be sentenced.
Is it possible?
Is it possible you could do this to us?
To people you´ve known?
A family you´ve loved.
You will let them go.
You will gladly let them go!
I didn´t try to kill the governor.
I´m not a murderer!
I know you´re not.
You are evil.
No, Judah, I am not evil.
I wanted your help.
Now you´ve given it to me.
By making this example of you,
I discourage treason.
By condemning without hesitation
An old friend, I shall be feared.
But not my family.
Let them go.
Messala, I beg you.
Didn´t I beg you?
You chose this.
There´s nothing more to be said.
Furious, Ben-Hur get the spear and attack Messala.
Kill me, and your mother
And sister will die today...
Nailed to crosses in front of you!
Ben-Hur decide not to kill him.
But Messala encourage Ben-Hur.
Go on, Judah.
Ben-Hur throw the spear against the built-in closet behind Messala and make a promise.
My God grant me vengeance.
I will pray that you live till I return.
