I'll take away your miseries and make it mine, D'evils
Ending the verse with a semi-Biblical touch as he promises redemption for the girl by taking on her pain and sorrow.
Right now, Jay-Z is feeling good. He got the location of the man like he needed, and is ready to take things in his own hands. But he knows that “in time” the pain and suffering he caused to both the girl and his old friend will come back to haunt him. Pain, like matter and energy in the universe, never goes away, it merely gets transferred or rearranged. Therefore, Jay absorbs the pain of all those he has wronged and has to carry it for the rest of his life.
Jay-Z in Decoded explains this line saying
In the end, I get her to do what I want, but it’s a grim victory. Not only will blood be shed based on the information she’s given me- hers and his- but the last vision of her, tears like a veil over her eyes, begging for both of their lives, is going to haunt me. Her miseries became mine.
