What is your tidings?
The king comes here to Night!
Come you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, and fill me crown to toe of direst cruelty.
Oh never shall sun that morrow see!
And when goes hence?
Tomorrow, as he purposes.
After reading a letter from Macbeth about finding out that he will become king from the witches he met, Lady Macbeth learns that the king, Duncan, is coming to her home and plans to stay overnight.
Finding out that the King is coming leads Lady Macbeth to some murderous thoughts. She calls upon spirits to give her the will and strength to help kill Duncan so Macbeth can become king.
Macbeth then shows up to find that Lady Macbeth already knows of the king coming later. They both have the idea, and agree on killing him that night so that he'd be dead by morning.
