2.21. They marched for three days from Nineveh to the plain of Bectileth, and camped opposite Bectileth near the mountain which is to the north of Upper Cilicia. 2.22. From there Holofernes took his whole army, his infantry, cavalry, and chariots, and went up into the hill country 2.23. and ravaged Put and Lud, and plundered all the people of Rassis and the Ishmaelites who lived along the desert, south of the country of the Chelleans. 2.24. Then he followed the Euphrates and passed through Mesopotamia and destroyed all the hilltop cities along the brook Abron, as far as the sea. 2.25. He also seized the territory of Cilicia, and killed every one who resisted him, and came to the southern borders of Japheth, fronting toward Arabia. 2.26. He surrounded all the Midianites, and burned their tents and plundered their sheepfolds. 2.27. Then he went down into the plain of Damascus during the wheat harvest, and burned all their fields and destroyed their flocks and herds and sacked their cities and ravaged their lands and put to death all their young men with the edge of the sword. 3.1. So they sent messengers to sue for peace, and said, 3.9. Then he came to the edge of Esdraelon, near Dothan, fronting the great ridge of Judea; 4.10. They and their wives and their children and their cattle and every resident alien and hired laborer and purchased slave -- they all girded themselves with sackcloth. 4.11. And all the men and women of Israel, and their children, living at Jerusalem, prostrated themselves before the temple and put ashes on their heads and spread out their sackcloth before the Lord. 4.12. They even surrounded the altar with sackcloth and cried out in unison, praying earnestly to the God of Israel not to give up their infants as prey and their wives as booty, and the cities they had inherited to be destroyed, and the sanctuary to be profaned and desecrated to the malicious joy of the Gentiles. 6.11. So the slaves took him and led him out of the camp into the plain, and from the plain they went up into the hill country and came to the springs below Bethulia. 6.15. who in those days were Uzziah the son of Micah, of the tribe of Simeon, and Chabris the son of Gothoniel, and Charmis the son of Melchiel. 6.16. They called together all the elders of the city, and all their young men and their women ran to the assembly; and they set Achior in the midst of all their people, and Uzziah asked him what had happened. 7.1. The next day Holofernes ordered his whole army, and all the allies who had joined him, to break camp and move against Bethulia, and to seize the passes up into the hill country and make war on the Israelites. 7.3. They encamped in the valley near Bethulia, beside the spring, and they spread out in breadth over Dothan as far as Balbaim and in length from Bethulia to Cyamon, which faces Esdraelon. 7.7. and examined the approaches to the city, and visited the springs that supplied their water, and seized them and set guards of soldiers over them, and then returned to his army. 7.12. Remain in your camp, and keep all the men in your forces with you; only let your servants take possession of the spring of water that flows from the foot of the mountain -- 7.22. Their children lost heart, and the women and young men fainted from thirst and fell down in the streets of the city and in the passages through the gates; there was no strength left in them any longer. 7.23. Then all the people, the young men, the women, and the children, gathered about Uzziah and the rulers of the city and cried out with a loud voice, and said before all the elders, 7.32. Then he dismissed the people to their various posts, and they went up on the walls and towers of their city. The women and children he sent home. And they were greatly depressed in the city. 8.1. At that time Judith heard about these things: she was the daughter of Merari the son of Ox, son of Joseph, son of Oziel, son of Elkiah, son of Aias, son of Gideon, son of Raphaim, son of Ahitub, son of Elijah, son of Hilkiah, son of Eliab, son of Nathanael, son of Salamiel, son of Sarasadai, son of Israel. 8.3. For as he stood overseeing the men who were binding sheaves in the field, he was overcome by the burning heat, and took to his bed and died in Bethulia his city. So they buried him with his fathers in the field between Dothan and Balamon. 8.4. Judith had lived at home as a widow for three years and four months. 8.8. No one spoke ill of her, for she feared God with great devotion. 8.33. Stand at the city gate tonight, and I will go out with my maid; and within the days after which you have promised to surrender the city to our enemies, the Lord will deliver Israel by my hand. 9.1. Then Judith fell upon her face, and put ashes on her head, and uncovered the sackcloth she was wearing; and at the very time when that evening's incense was being offered in the house of God in Jerusalem, Judith cried out to the Lord with a loud voice, and said, 9.2. "O Lord God of my father Simeon, to whom thou gavest a sword to take revenge on the strangers who had loosed the girdle of a virgin to defile her, and uncovered her thigh to put her to shame, and polluted her womb to disgrace her; for thou hast said, `It shall not be done' -- yet they did it. 9.3. So thou gavest up their rulers to be slain, and their bed, which was ashamed of the deceit they had practiced, to be stained with blood, and thou didst strike down slaves along with princes, and princes on their thrones; 9.4. and thou gavest their wives for a prey and their daughters to captivity, and all their booty to be divided among thy beloved sons, who were zealous for thee, and abhorred the pollution of their blood, and called on thee for help -- O God, my God, hear me also, a widow. 9.8. Break their strength by thy might, and bring down their power in thy anger; for they intend to defile thy sanctuary, and to pollute the tabernacle where thy glorious name rests, and to cast down the horn of thy altar with the sword. 9.9. Behold their pride, and send thy wrath upon their heads; give to me, a widow, the strength to do what I plan. 9.10. By the deceit of my lips strike down the slave with the prince and the prince with his servant; crush their arrogance by the hand of a woman. 9.12. Hear, O hear me, God of my father, God of the inheritance of Israel, Lord of heaven and earth, Creator of the waters, King of all thy creation, hear my prayer! 10.3. and she removed the sackcloth which she had been wearing, and took off her widow's garments, and bathed her body with water, and anointed herself with precious ointment, and combed her hair and put on a tiara, and arrayed herself in her gayest apparel, which she used to wear while her husband Manasseh was living. 10.4. And she put sandals on her feet, and put on her anklets and bracelets and rings, and her earrings and all her ornaments, and made herself very beautiful, to entice the eyes of all men who might see her. 10.21. Holofernes was resting on his bed, under a canopy which was woven with purple and gold and emeralds and precious stones. 10.22. When they told him of her he came forward to the front of the tent, with silver lamps carried before him. 12.4. Judith replied, "As your soul lives, my lord, your servant will not use up the things I have with me before the Lord carries out by my hand what he has determined to do." 13.5. For now is the time to help thy inheritance, and to carry out my undertaking for the destruction of the enemies who have risen up against us." 13.13. They all ran together, both small and great, for it was unbelievable that she had returned; they opened the gate and admitted them, and they kindled a fire for light, and gathered around them. 13.14. Then she said to them with a loud voice, "Praise God, O praise him! Praise God, who has not withdrawn his mercy from the house of Israel, but has destroyed our enemies by my hand this very night!" 13.15. Then she took the head out of the bag and showed it to them, and said, "See, here is the head of Holofernes, the commander of the Assyrian army, and here is the canopy beneath which he lay in his drunken stupor. The Lord has struck him down by the hand of a woman. 14.3. Then they will seize their arms and go into the camp and rouse the officers of the Assyrian army; and they will rush into the tent of Holofernes, and will not find him. Then fear will come over them, and they will flee before you, 14.18. "The slaves have tricked us! One Hebrew woman has brought disgrace upon the house of King Nebuchadnezzar! For look, here is Holofernes lying on the ground, and his head is not on him!" 15.2. Fear and trembling came over them, so that they did not wait for one another, but with one impulse all rushed out and fled by every path across the plain and through the hill country. 15.3. Those who had camped in the hills around Bethulia also took to flight. Then the men of Israel, every one that was a soldier, rushed out upon them. 15.4. And Uzziah sent men to Betomasthaim and Bebai and Choba and Kola, and to all the frontiers of Israel, to tell what had taken place and to urge all to rush out upon their enemies to destroy them. 15.5. And when the Israelites heard it, with one accord they fell upon the enemy, and cut them down as far as Choba. Those in Jerusalem and all the hill country also came, for they were told what had happened in the camp of the enemy; and those in Gilead and in Galilee outflanked them with great slaughter, even beyond Damascus and its borders. 15.10. You have done all this singlehanded; you have done great good to Israel, and God is well pleased with it. May the Almighty Lord bless you for ever!" And all the people said, "So be it!" 15.11. So all the people plundered the camp for thirty days. They gave Judith the tent of Holofernes and all his silver dishes and his beds and his bowls and all his furniture; and she took them and loaded her mule and hitched up her carts and piled the things on them. 16.1. Then Judith began this thanksgiving before all Israel, and all the people loudly sang this song of praise. 16.2. And Judith said, Begin a song to my God with tambourines, sing to my Lord with cymbals. Raise to him a new psalm; exalt him, and call upon his name. 16.4. The Assyrian came down from the mountains of the north; he came with myriads of his warriors; their multitude blocked up the valleys, their cavalry covered the hills. 16.5. He boasted that he would burn up my territory, and kill my young men with the sword, and dash my infants to the ground and seize my children as prey, and take my virgins as booty. 16.7. For their mighty one did not fall by the hands of the young men, nor did the sons of the Titans smite him, nor did tall giants set upon him; but Judith the daughter of Merari undid him with the beauty of her countece. 16.10. The Persians trembled at her boldness, the Medes were daunted at her daring. 16.13. I will sing to my God a new song: O Lord, thou are great and glorious, wonderful in strength, invincible. 16.22. Many desired to marry her, but she remained a widow all the days of her life after Manasseh her husband died and was gathered to his people. 16.23. She became more and more famous, and grew old in her husband's house, until she was one hundred and five years old. She set her maid free. She died in Bethulia, and they buried her in the cave of her husband Manasseh,

1.340. It being now the time of a festival, when the Shechemites were employed in ease and feasting, they fell upon the watch when they were asleep, and, coming into the city, slew all the males as also the king, and his son, with them; but spared the women. And when they had done this without their father’s consent, they brought away their sister. 11.231. The same supplications did the multitude put up, and entreated that God would provide for their deliverance, and free the Israelites that were in all the earth from this calamity which was now coming upon them, for they had it before their eyes, and expected its coming. Accordingly, Esther made supplication to God after the manner of her country, by casting herself down upon the earth, and putting on her mourning garments, 11.234. 9. When Esther had used this supplication for three days, she put off those garments, and changed her habit, and adorned herself as became a queen, and took two of her handmaids with her, the one of which supported her, as she gently leaned upon her, and the other followed after, and lifted up her large train (which swept along the ground) with the extremities of her fingers. And thus she came to the king, having a blushing redness in her countece, with a pleasant agreeableness in her behavior; yet did she go in to him with fear;

Conversely, with regard to b Zimri, /b who b engaged in licentious /b sexual intercourse for the purpose of a transgression, b several multitudes of Israel fell due to him; /b twenty-four thousand in a plague (see Numbers 25:9). This shows that a great deal depends on one’s intentions.,§ b Rav Naḥman bar Yitzḥak said: Greater is a transgression /b committed b for its own sake, /b i.e., for the sake of Heaven, b than a mitzva /b performed b not for its own sake. /b The Gemara questions this comparison: b But didn’t Rav Yehuda say /b that b Rav said: A person should always occupy himself with Torah and mitzvot even not for their own sake, as /b it is b through /b acts performed b not for their own sake /b that good deeds b for their own sake come /b about? How, then, can any transgression be considered greater than a mitzva not for the sake of Heaven?, b Rather, /b one must emend the above statement and b say /b as follows: A transgression for the sake of Heaven is b equivalent to a mitzva not for its own sake. /b The proof is b as it is written: “Blessed above women shall Yael be, the wife of Hever the Kenite, above women in the tent she shall be blessed” /b (Judges 5:24), and it is taught: b Who are /b these b “women in the tent?” /b They are b Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah. /b Yael’s forbidden intercourse with Sisera for the sake of Heaven is compared to the sexual intercourse in which the Matriarchs engaged.,The Gemara asks: How is it derived that Yael engaged in sexual intercourse with Sisera? As b Rabbi Yoḥa said: That wicked one, /b Sisera, b engaged in seven acts of sexual intercourse /b with Yael b at that time, as it is stated: “Between her feet he sunk, he fell, he lay; /b between her feet he sunk, he fell; where he sunk, there he fell down dead” (Judges 5:27). Each mention of falling is referring to another act of intercourse.,The Gemara asks: b But /b Yael at least b enjoyed the sexual intercourse /b with b him; /b why is the verse so effusive in her praise? b Rabbi Yoḥa said: All the good of the wicked, /b i.e., anything good received from wicked people, b is nothing other /b than b evil for the righteous, /b and therefore she certainly derived no pleasure from the act.,The Gemara asks: From where is this principle derived? b As /b it b is stated /b in the verse that God warned Laban the Aramean, when he was chasing Jacob: b “Guard yourself from speaking to Jacob, from good to evil” /b (Genesis 31:24). b Granted, /b with regard to the warning against speaking b evil, /b it is b fine /b that Laban was warned not to harm Jacob. b However, why shouldn’t /b he say anything b good /b to Jacob? b Rather, /b must one b not conclude from /b this verse that even Laban’s b good is bad /b in Jacob’s eyes? The Gemara concludes: b Learn from this /b that it is so.,§ The Gemara returns to analyze in greater detail b the /b above matter b itself. Rav Yehuda said /b that b Rav said: A person should always occupy himself with Torah and mitzvot even not for their own sake, as through /b these acts performed b not for their own sake, /b good deeds b for their own sake come /b about. The proof for this is b that in reward for the forty-two offerings that the wicked Balak sacrificed /b (see Numbers, chapter 23), although he did not do so for the sake of Heaven but to facilitate the cursing of the Jewish people, nevertheless b he merited that Ruth descended from him. /b Not only was he the forebear of a righteous convert, but also of King David. b And /b this is as b Rabbi Yosei, son of Rabbi Ḥanina, said: Ruth was the daughter of the son of Eglon, king of Moab, /b who descended from Balak, king of Moab., b Rabbi Ḥiyya bar Abba said /b that b Rabbi Yoḥa said: From where /b is it derived b that the Holy One, Blessed be He, does not deprive /b one of b even /b the b reward for proper speech, /b i.e., for speaking in a refined manner? b As while /b there is the case of Lot’s b elder /b daughter, b who called /b her son b Moab [ i mo’av /i ], /b which alludes to his shameful origins, as i me’av /i means: From father, b and the Merciful One says to /b Moses: b “Do not besiege Moab, nor contend with them in war” /b (Deuteronomy 2:9), which indicates: It is b war that is not /b permitted; b however, /b with regard to b harassing, /b the Jews were permitted b to harass them. /b , b And while /b there is the case of Lot’s b younger /b daughter, b who called /b her son b Ben-Ami, /b son of my people, without explicitly mentioning her father. With regard to her descendants, God b said to /b Moses: b “Do not harass them, nor contend with them” /b (Deuteronomy 2:19), which means b even /b as far as b harassing /b is concerned, b you may not harass them at all. /b , b Rabbi Ḥiyya bar Avin said /b that b Rabbi Yehoshua ben Korḥa said: A person should always come first /b with regard b to a matter of a mitzva, as in reward of /b the b one night that the elder /b daughter of Lot b preceded the younger /b for the sake of a mitzva,

But /b if she performs i ḥalitza /i when he is wearing b a shoe /b that is so b torn that it does not cover most of the foot; or using a broken sandal that does not hold most of the foot; or using a hand blanket /b that the amputee wears on his hands, similar to a leather shoe, in order to drag himself using them; b or using a soft shoe [ i anpileya /i ] /b made b of cloth; or /b a woman b who performs i halitza /i with /b a i yavam /i who is b a minor; /b in all these cases b her i ḥalitza /i is disqualified. /b ,The Gemara comments: b Who is /b the i tanna /i who holds that b an amputee’s prosthetic /b is considered a shoe? b It is Rabbi Meir, as we learned /b in a mishna ( i Shabbat /i 65b): b One with an amputated leg may go out /b on Shabbat b with his wooden leg, /b as it has the legal status of a shoe; this is b the statement of Rabbi Meir. /b He reasons that the prosthesis functions like the shoe of any other person, indicating that Rabbi Meir is not especially concerned about the material from which the shoe is made. And b Rabbi Yosei, /b on the other hand, b prohibits /b the amputee from going out on Shabbat with his wooden leg, as he does not consider it a shoe that is being worn, but rather a wooden object that is being carried.,The Gemara asks how Rabbi Meir can be the i tanna /i of the i baraita /i , as the continuation of the i baraita /i states i ḥalitza /i is disqualified if performed b with an i anpileya /i /b made b of cloth, /b as this cloth shoe is not to be considered a shoe. If so, have b we come to /b the opinion of b the Rabbis, /b who rule in accordance with Rabbi Yosei, and render it prohibited to use any shoes for i ḥalitza /i that are not made of leather?,In an attempt to resolve the contradiction b Abaye said: Since the latter clause /b of the i baraita /i b is /b in accordance with b the Rabbis, /b who rule like Rabbi Yosei, b the first clause is also /b in accordance with b the Rabbis. And /b therefore b the first clause, /b which permits the amputee’s prosthesis, is b referring to /b a prosthetic foot b covered in leather, /b as it constitutes a shoe due to its leather exterior., b Rava said to him: But /b according to your explanation, if the prosthesis is b not covered in leather, what /b would its status be? It would be b unfit. If so, rather than teaching /b in the b latter clause: i Anpileya /i /b made b of cloth /b is invalid for i ḥalitza /i , b let /b it b distinguish within /b the matter b itself /b and say: b In what /b case b is this statement /b that a wooden prosthesis is fit b said? /b It is b in /b the case of a prosthetic leg b covered in leather, but /b if it is b not covered in leather, it is unfit. /b , b Rather, /b the fact that the i baraita /i was not taught in that manner indicates that Abaye’s explanation is incorrect. Therefore, b Rava said /b that the contradiction should be reconciled in another way: b Since the first clause /b of the i baraita /i is in accordance with the opinion of b Rabbi Meir, /b that the shoes need not be made of leather, b the latter clause is also /b taught in accordance with the opinion of b Rabbi Meir /b , and the distinction between a wooden prosthetic and an i anpileya /i of cloth is: b This /b prosthesis b protects /b the foot, b and that /b soft shoe b does not protect /b the foot, as it does not have a hard sole. Rabbi Meir does not require that the shoe be of leather, but he does require that it be protective footwear.,With regard to the statement in the i baraita /i that indicates that i ḥalitza /i may be performed even if the i yavam /i is not standing, b Ameimar said: The one who performs i ḥalitza /i /b by having his i yevama /i remove his shoe b must press his foot /b to the ground, and while in this position the i yevama /i will remove his shoe., b Rav Ashi said to Ameimar: But isn’t it taught /b in the i baraita /i above: She may perform i ḥalitza /i b whether he was standing or sitting or leaning? /b One who is leaning cannot easily press his foot into the ground. He answered him: b Say /b that the man may perform i ḥalitza /i while in any of these positions, but that b actually /b this is true only if b he presses his foot /b to the ground, which is admittedly more difficult to do while leaning., b And Ameimar /b also b said /b about this issue: b Someone who walks on the backs of his feet, /b meaning he is clubfooted and his foot is twisted upside down, b cannot perform i ḥalitza /i . Rav Ashi said to Ameimar: But isn’t it taught /b in a i baraita /i : b Leg supports /b can be used for i ḥalitza /i . b Does this not mean that /b this lame individual b performs i ḥalitza /i using these /b supports on his knees? This would indicate that even one with twisted feet can perform i ḥalitza /i . The Gemara answers: b No, /b the intention is that if b he gave these supports to another /b whose foot is shaped normally b and he /b wore them while b performing i ḥalitza /i , /b it is valid. That other one is allowed to perform i ḥalitza /i while wearing these supports because they are also considered shoes, but one whose foot is misshapen may not perform i ḥalitza /i with them, as it functions for him as a foot, not a shoe., b Rav Ashi said: According to what Ameimar said, bar Uva cannot perform i ḥalitza /i and bar Kipof cannot perform i ḥalitza /i , /b as these two, who were famous eulogizers in Rav Ashi’s generation, had feet that became so crooked that they were unable to walk normally.,It was taught in the mishna that if one’s leg was amputated b from the knee down /b and his i yevama /i performed i ḥalitza /i with him, the i ḥalitza /i is valid. The Gemara b raises a contradiction /b from a i baraita /i that comments on the pilgrimage one makes to Jerusalem during a Festival. The Torah states: “Three b Festivals [ i regalim /i ] /b you shall celebrate for Me in the year” (Exodus 23:14). The i baraita /i comments on the verse: Festivals are referred to in the verse as i regalim /i , which literally means feet, indicating that one must actually make the pilgrimage to Jerusalem by foot [ i regel /i ] during the Festival, which comes to b exclude people who have prostheses. /b This indicates that a prosthetic foot is not called a i regel /i , which seems to contradict the mishna that allows i ḥalitza /i on a prosthetic from the knee down.,The Gemara answers: b It is different here, /b with respect to i ḥalitza /i , b as it is written: /b “She removes the shoe b from on his foot [ i me’al raglo /i ]” /b (Deuteronomy 25:9), which indicates that not only can his actual foot be used for performing i ḥalitza /i , but also the part above it, i.e., the calf. The Gemara objects: b If that is so, /b that one may use a part of his leg above his foot to perform i ḥalitza /i , then if one’s leg was amputated b from above the knee, /b he should b also /b be eligible for i ḥalitza /i ; and yet, the same mishna taught that only one with a leg amputated from below the knee is eligible for i ḥalitza /i . The Gemara answers that the verse states: b “From on /b his foot,” meaning above his foot, b but not: From on that which is on /b his foot; the wording indicates that it can be above his foot until the knee, but not any further above that., b Rav Pappa said: Learn from here that the heel bone [ i istavira /i ] reaches to the ground /b where it connects to the foot, b for if it enters your mind /b to say b that it is separate and divided, /b and there is another bone in between, b then that /b ankle bone b is “from on /b the foot” b and the calf /b would be prohibited for i ḥalitza /i , as it would be considered: b From on that which is on /b his foot. b Rav Ashi said: Even /b if b you say that it is separate and divided /b from the calf, because b anything that is connected with the /b sole of the b foot is considered like the foot, /b then the ankle is certainly part of the foot, making the calf the area that is “from on the foot.”,It was taught in the mishna that if one’s legs were amputated b from the knee and above, /b the i ḥalitza /i is invalid. This implies that the i regel /i includes the calf but not the thigh. b Rav Kahana raised an objection /b from the verse: b “And against her afterbirth that emerges from between her legs [ i ragleha /i ]” /b (Deuteronomy 28:57), implying that i regel /i includes even the thighs. b Abaye said: /b The verse actually means between her feet, as b when /b a woman b crouches to give birth, she pushes her heels into her thighs and she gives birth, /b so it appears as if the fetus emerges from between her feet.,The Gemara continues its challenge. b Come /b and b hear /b another verse: b “He had neither dressed his feet [ i raglav /i ], nor trimmed his beard” /b (II Samuel 19:25). The phrase “dressed his feet [ i raglav /i ]” is referring to treating his pubic hair, implying that even the area around the thigh is referred to as i regel /i . The Gemara answers: This is b a euphemism. /b The Gemara attempts another challenge: b Come /b and b hear /b from another verse: b “And Saul went in to cover his feet [ i raglav /i ]” /b (I Samuel 24:3), meaning: To urinate, implying that i regel /i refers even to the thighs. The Gemara answers: This is also b a euphemism. /b , b Come /b and b hear /b the meaning of: His feet, from the following verse regarding the Moabite king, Eglon, which states: b “Surely he is covering his feet [ i raglav /i ] in the cabinet of the cool chamber” /b (Judges 3:24). The Gemara answers: This is b a euphemism. /b The Gemara attempts another proof from a verse regarding Sisera’s encounter with Yael: b “At her feet [ i ragleha /i ] /b he sunk, he fell” (Judges 5:27), which indicates that they had sexual intercourse, and implies that i regel /i includes the thigh. The Gemara answers: This is also b a euphemism. /b ,The Gemara elaborates on what happened when Sisera was in Yael’s tent. b Rabbi Yoḥa said: That wicked /b man, Sisera, b had /b sexual b intercourse /b with Yael b seven times that day, as it is stated: “At her feet he sunk, he fell, he lay; at her feet he sunk, he fell; where he sunk, there he fell down dead” /b (Judges 5:27). Each instance of the terms “sunk,” “fell,” or “lay” in the verse indicates an act of intercourse, as Yael sought to tire and weaken Sisera to enable her to kill him. The Gemara asks: b But /b how could Yael do this even for the noble purpose of killing the wicked Sisera, as b she derived pleasure from /b the b transgression /b of licentious sexual relations with a gentile? b Rabbi Yoḥa said in the name of Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai: Every /b act that is a b benefit for the wicked /b
