Jesse Tree of Holy Women ~ Judith


"Drop down dew ye heavens above

and let the clouds rain the just one."
Isaiah 45: 8


"She was beautiful in appearance, and was very lovely to behold."  Judith 8: 7

Judith, daughter of Merari, wife of Manasseh, was a beautiful, wealthy, courageous woman who lived in the town of Bethulia and liberated her people from an Assyrian siege by seducing Holofernes, general of the Assyrian army, and chopping off his head (Woman Word by Miriam Therese Winter).
