“Let our lord now heare a word, that there be not an ouerthrow in thine armie.”
King James Version (KJV)
6. But in the second day Holofernes brought foorth all his horsemen, in the sight of the children of Israel which were in Bethulia, 7. And viewed the passages vp to the city, and came to the fountaine of their waters, and tooke them, and set garrisons of men of warre ouer them, and he himselfe remooued towards his people. 8. Then came vnto him all the chiefe of the children of Esau, and al the gouernours of the people of Moab, and the captaines of the sea coast, and said, 9. Let our lord now heare a word, that there be not an ouerthrow in thine armie. 10. For this people of the children of Israel do not trust in their speares, but in the height of the mountaines wherein they dwell, because it is not easie to come vp to the tops of their mountains. 11. Now therefore my lord, fight not against them in battell aray, and there shall not so much as one man of thy people perish. 12. Remaine in thy campe, and keepe all the men of thine army, and let thy seruants get into their hands the fountaine of water which issueth foorth of the foot of the mountaine.
