Lightbulb JUdith

Artemisia Gentileschi's painting Judith Beheading Holofernes..
In the deuterocanonical Book of Judith, Holofernes (Hebrew, הולופרנס) was an invading general of Nebuchadnezzar. Nebuchadnezzar dispatched Holofernes to take vengeance on the nations of the west that had withheld their assistance to his reign.. Holofernes occupied all the nations along the sea coast and destroyed all the gods of the nations, so that all nations would worship Nebuchadnezzar alone.. Holofernes was warned by Achior, the leader of the children of Ammon, against attacking the Jewish people.. Holofernes and his followers were angered by Achior. They rebuked him, insisting that there was no god other than Nebuchadnezzar..The general laid siege to Bethulia, commonly believed to be Meselieh, and the city almost surrendered. Holofernes' advance stopped the water supply to Bethulia.. The people lost heart and encouraged Ozias and their rulers to give way..The leaders vowed to surrender if no help arrived within 5 days... lose control.. Never let the monster out..Do me one last favour, lover?. Stay still long enough for me to blow your brains out..She owns me..Body and soul...
