Why is Judith shown with the King James Bible?

1 In the twelfth yeere of þe reigne of Nabuchodonosor, who reigned in Nineue the great citie, (in the dayes of Arphaxad, which reigned ouer the Medes in Ecbatane,

2 And built in Ecbatane walles round about of stones hewen, three cubites broad, and sixe cubites long, and made the height of the wall seuenty cubites, and the breadth thereof fiftie cubites:

3 And set the towers thereof vpon the gates of it, an hundred cubites high, and the breadth thereof in the foundation threescore cubites.

4 And he made the gates thereof, euen gates that were raised to the height of seuentie cubites, & the breadth of them was fourtie cubites, for the going foorth of his mightie armies, and for the setting in aray of his footmen.)

5 Euen in those dayes, king Nabuchodonosor made warre with king Arphaxad in the great plaine, which is the plaine in the borders of Ragau.

6 And there came vnto him, all they that dwelt in the hill countrey, and all that dwelt by Euphrates, and Tigris, and Hydaspes, and the plaine of Arioch the king of the Elimeans, and very many nations of the sonnes of Chelod, assembled themselues to the battell.

7 Then Nabuchodonosor king of the Assyrians, sent vnto all that dwelt in Persia, and to all that dwelt Westward, and to those that dwelt in Cilicia, and Damascus and Libanus, and Antilibanus, and to all that dwelt vpon the Sea coast,

8 And to those amongst the nations that were of Carmel, and Galaad, and the higher Galile, and the great plaine of Esdrelon,

9 And to all that were in Samaria, and the cities thereof: and beyond Iordan vnto Ierusalem, and Betane, and Chellus, and Kades, and the riuer of Egypt, and Taphnes, and Ramesse, and all the land of Gesem,

10 Untill you come beyond Tanis, and Memphis, and to all the inhabitants of Egypt, vntill you come to the borders of Ethiopia.

11 But all the inhabitants of the land made light of the commandement of Nabuchodonosor king of the Assyrians, neither went they with him to the battell: for they were not afraid of him: yea he was before them as one man, and they sent away his Ambassadours from them without effect, and with disgrace.

12 Therefore Nabuchodonosor was very angry with all this countrey, and sware by his throne and kingdome, that hee would surely be auenged vpon all those coasts of Cilicia, and Damascus, and Syria, and that he would slay with the sword all the inhabitants of the land of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and all Iudea, and all that were in Egypt, till you come to the borders of the two Seas.

13 Then he marched in battell aray with his power against king Arphaxad in the seuenteenth yeere, and he preuailed in his battell: for he ouerthrew all the power of Arphaxad, and all his horsemen and all his chariots,

14 And became Lord of his cities, and came vnto Ecbatane, and tooke the towers, and spoiled the streetes thereof, and turned the beauty thereof into shame.

15 Hee tooke also Arphaxad in the mountaines of Ragau, and smote him through with his dartes, and destroyed him vtterly that day.

16 So he returned afterward to Nineue, both he and all his company of sundry nations: being a very great multitude of men of warre, and there he tooke his ease and banketted, both he and his armie an hundred and twenty dayes.

Discussion for Judith 1

  • William A Baumgardner Sr.
    She was a very courageous person, because of her faith.She truly trusted in God His promised protection. She was a very upright, morally clean person. She should gain Exaltation when she stands before our Judge on Judgment Day.

    One has to wonder the motives of adding to or removing ANY of the books of the Bible. Whether or not we find them relaveant. Non belief in what was, up until a couple hundred years ago, included in the Holy writings, woe to those who change the Word. There is a simple explanation for removal and that is control of the conversation.

    This is a comment on what your wife saw concerning Jude 1 The Bible was completed at the close of the book of Revelation This means that God is not giving any new messages to us That is if we do not believe what is written in the Bible God s last will and testiment to us before his return there is no need for him to reveal anything new But Satan can and does reveal new information to confuse us about God s truth Please tell your wife to disregard this vison because it was not from God It is just Satan s attempt to confuse her about the future God bless you

    Judith is not a book accepted by the first Holy Fathers, so it's not included in the Holy Bible

    God bless u, I am here to tell u that my wife Asha was lifted up in night of 2 Jan 2014 which I could not notice and she appeared before the Lord. Lord Himself spoke to her saying GO ON Earth Back with My angels and tell all pastors, workers and everyone to whom u may reach, that something most unique will happen in May 2014 therefore preach at their best not at the snail,s pace but with the speed of racehorse. Take no rest no halt save the people to whom u may save and leave the rest. All the angels flew down with her and she awoke. She doesnt reveal this to other than me because already many people made calculations from Bible and somewhere else declared the tribulation but this could not come to pass. But this time He was not looking in the mood to wait any more. U may direct talk to her as she is diplomat in High Commission of India in Nicosia ( Cyprus) So intensify the God,s work now with no discrimination of caste, religion, race, rich or poor, gentle or sinner.
