    I may assert eternal providence,
    And justify the ways of God to men.
    Say first, for Heav’n hides nothing from thy view
    Nor the deep tract of Hell, say first what cause
    Moved our grand parents in that happy state,
    Favored of Heav’n so highly, to fall off
    From their Creator, and transgress his will
    For one restraint, lords of the world besides?

    The two sets of lines marked in bold are the enjambed lines in this excerpt.
    This book by John Milton was published in the 17th century. It is a biblical story regarding Adam and Eve, the fallen angel Satan who tempts them in the Garden of Eden, and their expulsion. Milton wanted to justify God’s actions towards men.
