"I will not yield to kiss the ground before young Malcolm 's feet,... And damn 'd be him that first cries 'Hold, enough! '" (Line 32-39, Pg 249).

He states, “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy…...”(3.3.195) This is a shameless lie, jealousy is the reason why Iago betrays Othello and ruining everyone’s lives in the first place.
