Judith makes herself beautiful, and sets out with her maidservant. “Take me to your leader,” she says to the soldiers. The soldiers’ jaws drop at her good looks and they come over all charming and offer to escort her to Holofernes right away.
In fact, no less than 100 men escort her to Holofernes, Can you imagine it!
This way madam. Allow me.
Judith’s beauty entrances everyone, and she is led into Holofernes’ tent, described in loving and opulent detail. The tent that is. Not Judith.
