Judith, lines 289b-349 [end]

The Assyrians throw down their weapons and run away, and the Hebrews attack them from behind, utterly destroying the army.  Few survivors returned to their homeland.

The victors then loot the corpses and acquire immense spoils of war.  They bring back for Judith the sword of Holofernes, his bloody helmet, and his enormous coat of mail. They also give her many treasures.

For all this Judith gave glory to God.

Let us do so, also.
