2And Judith was left alone in the tent, and Holofernes lying alone upon his bed: for he was filled with wine. 3Now Judith had commanded her maid to stand without her bedchamber, and to wait for her. coming forth, as she did daily: for she said she would go forth to her prayers, and she spake to Bagoas according to the same purpose. 4So all went forth and none was left in the bedchamber, neither little nor great. Then Judith, standing by his bed, said in her heart, O Lord God of all power, look at this present upon the works of mine hands for the exaltation of Jerusalem. 5For now is the time to help thine inheritance, and to execute thine enterprizes to the destruction of the enemies which are risen against us.6Then she came to the pillar of the bed, which was at Holofernes' head, and took down his fauchion from thence, 7And approached to his bed, and took hold of the hair of his head, and said, Strengthen me, O Lord God of Israel, this day. 8And she smote twice upon his neck with all her might, and she took away his head from him.
