There's a good and pretty brief summary of that scene found in the enotes study guide to Macbeth (see the Summary and Analysis section):
http://www.enotes.com/macbeth/29404

You could also put it this way: Duncan names Malcolm as his heir, and this means that Macbeth will have to kill him for the prophecy to come true.
