PREPOSITIONS. Preposition omitted after verbs of motion; worth; and hearing

The preposition is also sometimes omitted before the thing heard after verbs of hearing:

“To listen our purpose.

“List a brief tale.

So J. C. v. 5. 15; Hamlet, i. 3. 30; J. C. iv. 1. 41.

“Listening their fear.

Hence in the passive,

“He that no more must say is listen'd more.

“Hearken1 the end.

; Temp. i. 2. 122.
