You say that you are innocent. This has all been some sort of mistake.
The magistrate thinks a moment. He says, "It may be possible that an innocent person has been falsely accused."
The magistrate continues, "But our prince, who has been appointed by our Lord God, is very conscientious. If he has established procedures to investigate these crimes, it is not my place to question his wisdom. He will attend to any errors. I have only to obey him. And does not Holy Scripture itself prove that God will protect the innocent? Now I ask you again, will you confess to being a witch?"
*"I confess, I am a witch."
*"I deny it, I am not a witch."
