Judith 7:9
“May our master listen to our advice, and your army won’t suffer any losses.
Wherefore that thou mayst overcome them without joining battle, set guards at the springs that they may not draw water out of them, and thou shalt destroy them without sword, or at least being wearied out they will yield up their city, which they suppose, because it is situate in the mountains, to be impregnable.
Sir, if you listen to our advice, your troops will not suffer heavy losses.
“Master, please listen to what we have to say, that there may be no losses among your forces.
“Listen to what we have to say, my lord, and your army will suffer no losses.
‘Listen to what we have to say, my lord, and your army will suffer no losses.
‘Listen to what we have to say, my lord, and your army will suffer no losses.
“Listen to what we have to say, my lord, and your army will suffer no losses.
“Let our lord hear a word, lest his army be defeated.
“Let our lord hear a word, lest his army be defeated.
Therefore (so) that thou mayest overcome them without (the) assailing of battle, set thou keepers of (or about) their wells, (so) that they draw not water (out) of those; and thou shalt slay them without sword, either certainly when they be made faint for default of water, they shall betake to thee their city, the which city, for it is set in the hills, they guess it may not be overcome. [Then that without going to fight thou be able to overcome them, put keepers of wells, that they draw not of them; and without sword, thou shalt slay them, or certainly wearied they shall take their city (unto thee), the which they ween in the hills to be not able to be overcome.]
