"And she smote twice upon his neck with all her might, and she took away his head from him, and tumbled his body down from the bed and pulled down the canopy from the pillars; and anon after she went forth, and gave Holofernes his head to her maid; and she put it in her bag of meat; so they twain went together, according to their custom, unto prayer; and when they passed the camp, they compassed the valley and went up the mountain of Bethulia and came to the gates thereof."--Book of Judith, chap. 15, v. 8, 9, 10.
