7For the mighty one did not fall by the young men, neither did the sons of the Titans smite him, nor high giants set upon him: but Judith the daughter of Merari weakened him with the beauty of her countenance. 8For she put off the garment of her widowhood for the exaltation of those that were oppressed in Israel, and anointed her face with ointment, and bound her hair in a tire, and took a linen garment to deceive him. 9Her sandals ravished his eyes, her beauty took his mind prisoner, and the fauchion passed through his neck. 10The Persians quaked at her boldness, and the Medes were daunted at her hardiness.11Then my afflicted shouted for joy, and my weak ones cried aloud; but they were astonished: these lifted up their voices, but they were overthrown. 12The sons of the damsels have pierced them through, and wounded them as fugatives' children: they perished by the battle of the Lord. 13I will sing unto the Lord a new song: O Lord, thou art great and glorious, wonderful in strength, and invincible.
