Well, the question is very interesting. If  such a speech were to be addressed in modern english, it would be something like this:

My dear lords and knights. You can see my blood boltered head and be forced to think as to what has happened to me. Let me give you a shock. I am no longer Banquo but his ghost who has returned to be a part of the Banquet where I was supposed to be the Chief Guest.

The man you see here is a murderer and a tyrant who , to fulfill his desire to be the king of Scotland, murdered his own cousin, the gracious Duncan. In order that there are no opponents in his way, he put the suspicion on the innocent sons of Duncan. He got me murdered while I was returning to the castle with my son. His draconian regime has brought about the ruin of the country and no one is safe and secure as long as he remains the kingnof this great country. If you do not believe me, you might catch the man who just came to meet him a little while ago. He was the one who had been planted by Macbeth to get me killed on the way.

 Before this man brings about more harm, I request you all to take the law into your hands and give him a taste of his own medicine and save the country.
