Judith 13

    Judith Beheads Holofernes

  1. "When evening came, his slaves quickly withdrew, and Bago'as closed the tent from outside and shut out the attendants from his master's presence; and they went to bed, for they all were weary because the banquet had lasted long. "
  2. "So Judith was left alone in the tent, with Holofer'nes stretched out on his bed, for he was overcome with wine."
  3. "Now Judith had told her maid to stand outside the bedchamber and to wait for her to come out, as she did every day; for she said she would be going out for her prayers. And she had said the same thing to Bago'as. "
  4. Judith Returns to Bethulia
