Why is Judith shown with the King James Bible?

In the twelfth year of the reign of Nabuchodonosor, who reigned in Nineve, the great city; in the days of Arphaxad, which reigned over the Medes in Ecbatane, 2 And built in Ecbatane walls round about of stones hewn three cubits broad and six cubits long, and made the height of the wall seventy cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits: 3 And set the towers thereof upon the gates of it an hundred cubits high, and the breadth thereof in the foundation threescore cubits: 4 And he made the gates thereof, even gates that were raised to the height of seventy cubits, and the breadth of them was forty cubits, for the going forth of his mighty armies, and for the setting in array of his footmen: 5 Even in those days king Nabuchodonosor made war with king Arphaxad in the great plain, which is the plain in the borders of Ragau. 6 And there came unto him all they that dwelt in the hill country, and all that dwelt by Euphrates, and Tigris and Hydaspes, and the plain of Arioch the king of the Elymeans, and very many nations of the sons of Chelod, assembled themselves to the battle. 7 Then Nabuchodonosor king of the Assyrians sent unto 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 upon the sea coast, 8 And to those among the nations that were of Carmel, and Galaad, and the higher Galilee, and the great plain of Esdrelom, 9 And to all that were in Samaria and the cities thereof, and beyond Jordan unto Jerusalem, and Betane, and Chelus, and Kades, and the river of Egypt, and Taphnes, and Ramesse, and all the land of Gesem, 10 Until ye come beyond Tanis and Memphis, and to all the inhabitants of Egypt, until ye come to the borders of Ethiopia. 11 But all the inhabitants of the land made light of the commandment of Nabuchodonosor king of the Assyrians, neither went they with him to the battle; for they were not afraid of him: yea, he was before them as one man, and they sent away his ambassadors from them without effect, and with disgrace. 12 Therefore Nabuchodonosor was very angry with all this country, and sware by his throne and kingdom, that he would surely be avenged upon 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 Judea, and all that were in Egypt, till ye come to the borders of the two seas. 13 Then he marched in battle array with his power against king Arphaxad in the seventeenth year, and he prevailed in his battle: for he overthrew all the power of Arphaxad, and all his horsemen, and all his chariots, 14 And became lord of his cities, and came unto Ecbatane, and took the towers, and spoiled the streets thereof, and turned the beauty thereof into shame. 15 He took also Arphaxad in the mountains of Ragau, and smote him through with his darts, and destroyed him utterly that day. 16 So he returned afterward to Nineve, both he and all his company of sundry nations being a very great multitude of men of war, and there he took his ease, and banqueted, both he and his army, an hundred and twenty days.

    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.
  • Rev. Autrey on Judith 1
    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
  • Kl angora on Judith 1
    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.

  • Popoola Yusuf on Judith 1
    I think the argument for adding this books are irrelevant, the bible contain more inspiration and power from God, this is just a tactis to distract us from performing our purpose on earth which is soul winning.
  • Myra on Judith 1
    i am not going to get into the argument of whether it should or should not be included with the other books but i do believe it is very valuable as far as the history aspect, after all, archeologists use the bible to look for lost artifacts like Noah's Ark, also on the quest for the Ark of the Covenant, as far as that goes, i would say these books are invaluable, as far as my faith, I use the bible for inspiration and guidance, I cannot judge someone else' opinion, it would be detrimental and i feel they have a right to their opinion the same as i have a right to mine
