"Then Judith, standing by his bed, said in her heart, O Lord God of all power, look at this present upon the work of mine hands for the exaltation of Jerusalem. For now is the time to help thy inheritance, and to execute mine enterprises, to the destruction of the enemies which have arisen against us." "Then she came to the pillar of the bed, which was at Holofernes' head, and took down his falchion from thence, and approached to his bed, and took hold of the hair of his head and said, Strengthen me, O Lord God of Israel, this day." "And she smote upon his neck with all her might, and she took away his head from him."--Book of Judith, xiii. 4, 8. [P. 9.]
