help with macbeth please!?

so i have to paraphrase this paragraphs from act 3 scene 1 and 4, but like without using enotes or sparknotes:

BANQUO Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all,

As the weird women promised, and I fear

Thou played’st most foully for ’t. Yet it was said

It should not stand in thy posterity,

But that myself should be the root and father

Of many kings. If there come truth from them—

As upon thee, Macbeth, their speeches shine—

Why, by the verities on thee made good,

May they not be my oracles as well,

And set me up in hope? But hush, no more. (lines1-10)

hear it by the way; but I will send.

There’s not a one of them but in his house

I keep a servant fee’d. I will tomorrow—

And betimes I will—to the weird sisters.

More shall they speak, for now I am bent to know,

By the worst means, the worst. For mine own good,

All causes shall give way. I am in blood

Stepped in so far that, should I wade no more,

Returning were as tedious as go o'er.

Strange things I have in head, that will to hand,

Which must be acted ere they may be scanned. (lines 159-171)
