"He's gone'-and against her heart that hand is driven/convulsed and quick - then gently raised to heaven,/ she look'd and saw for the exaltation of Jerusalem. For now is the time to help thy inheritance, and to execute mine enterprizes, to the destruction of the enemies which have risen 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 his head and said, strengthen me, O Lord God of Israel, this day. ' And she smote twice upon his neck with all her might, and she took his head away from him.' - Apocrypha, Book of Judith, XIII, 4, 8." [P. 4.]
