"I angrily turned round in bed and made up my mind that I would not say a word unless he did; so I rested silently on my pillow determined to remain dumb, if it were to last till morning.
Я злобно повернулся на постели, тоже облокотился на подушку, и нарочно решился тоже молчать, хотя бы мы всё время так просидели.

This dumb reproach, more deeply than any other, cut Elena to the heart; at such moments she felt, not remorse, but a deep, boundless pity akin to remorse.
Этот немой укор глубже всякого другого проникал в сердце Елены не раскаяние чувствовала она тогда, но глубокую, бесконечную жалость, похожую на раскаяние.

Они обняли друг друга за талию, прижались щекою к щеке и безмолвно застыли, очарованные полным единением.

Он и кличку ей дал - немые знают, что мычанье их обращает на себя внимание других, - он назвал ее Муму.

Then they take somebody who's dumb enough to break the law, and they put the point of the hook in through one side of his belly and out the other and they let him go - and there he hangs, by God, one damn sorry law-breaker."
Потом берут того, у кого хватило глупости преступить закон, и втыкают крюк ему в живот с одной стороны так, чтобы вышел с другой, — и все! Он и висит там, проклятый нарушитель, черт его дери!

Why did Providence hide its face "at the most critical moment" (so Alyosha thought it), as though voluntarily submitting to the blind, dumb, pitiless laws of nature?
К чему сокрыло оно свой перст "в самую нужную минуту" (думал Алеша) и как бы само захотело подчинить себя слепым, немым, безжалостным законам естественным?
