He knows the cycle of witchcraft practiced in Salem. However, when the judges and Hale bring him to confess witchcraft, he disagrees to confess for the crime he did not commit; instead he admits his infidelity with Abagail. He knows from the beginning that witchcraft is vengeance of an adulteress Abigail. As a result, Hale is overcome by the many descriptions of all of the unnatural events occurring in Salem: Betty's illness, Ruth's condition, Tituba's ability to conjure spirits, dancing in the woods, the death of the seven Putnam children, Martha Corey's strange books, and so forth. I have given you my soul; leave me my name!

Hale questions Tituba and tells her that she can redeem herself by admitting that she has been working with the Devil and by telling him the names of anyone else involved.

A delay in his confession not only proves him a liar but also makes him the prime accused. The court in Salem belongs to God.
