"I am yet Unknown to woman, never was forsworn,

Scarcely have coveted what was mine own,

At no time broke my faith, would not betray

The devil to his fellow..." Act 4 scene 3.

Here Malcolm has just tested Macduff's loyalty. Having been convinced of it, he comes clean about his true self. He isn't a thief, is loyal to his friends and is apparently a virgin. Malcolm is still pretty green behind the ears. Although he lacks the assertiveness of a king, he seems like a decent guy and fair king.
