23Then all the people assembled to Ozias, and to the chief of the city, both young men, and women, and children, and cried with a loud voice, and said before all the elders, 24God be judge between us and you: for ye have done us great injury, in that ye have not required peace of the children of Assur. 25For now we have no helper: but God hath sold us into their hands, that we should be thrown down before them with thirst and great destruction. 26Now therefore call them unto you, and deliver the whole city for a spoil to the people of Holofernes, and to all his army.27For it is better for us to be made a spoil unto them, than to die for thirst: for we will be his servants, that our souls may live, and not see the death of our infants before our eyes, nor our wives nor our children to die. 28We take to witness against you the heaven and the earth, and our God and Lord of our fathers, which punisheth us according to our sins and the sins of our fathers, that he do not according as we have said this day. 29Then there was great weeping with one consent in the midst of the assembly; and they cried unto the Lord God with a loud voice.
