What care I whether the divell himselfe redeem me?

From Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy (Part 2, Sec 1, Memb. 1, Subs. 1), on Unlawfull Cures of Melancholy (to be rejected, of course):

It matters not, saith Paracelsus, whether it bee God or the Divell, Angells or uncleane spirits cure him, so that he be eased. If a man fall into a ditch, as he prosequutes it, what matter is it whether a friend or an enimy helpe him out, and if I be troubled with such a malady, what care I whether the divell himselfe, or any of his ministers by Gods permission redeem me?

applied these days to Mitch McConnell.
