Additionally, the last three stanzas reveal information about the Siren song.
Odysseus was smart enough to realize his own limitations due to him saying, “So all rowed on, until the Sirens dropped under the sea rim, and their singing dwindled away.

Dimmesdale is up on the scaffold and wants nothing more than for Hester and Pearl to join him, “come hither! Come…” he repeats to them throughout the scene. Hawthorne makes Dimmesdale wish so clear in order to show that he is exposing his sin for their benefit. Along with needing Hester and Pearl by his side, Dimmesdale also illuminates that “with God’s help” he will be free. Hawthorne engrains that Dimmesdale could not stand up and speak out if he didn’t believe that God was in his corner.
He is warned on his travels about the Siren’s song from Circe and instructs his men to plug their ears with wax as to not be able to be seduced and tempted by the melody.

As they “sing sin” (line 4 and 5), they show an enormous “level of comfort with the sin because they are singing it to the world” with no fear of judgement.

"Plug your men 's ears with beeswax kneaded and none of the rest should hear the song ' '. That proves that he is a good leader because he filled every single man 's ear with bee 's wax so they could not hear the Sirens.
