Chapter 2 19 Then he went forth and all his power to go before king Nabuchodonosor in the voyage, and to cover all the face of the earth westward with their chariots, and horsemen, and their chosen footmen.20 A great number also sundry countries came with them like locusts, and like the sand of the earth: for the multitude was without number.21 And they went forth of Nineve three days' journey toward the plain of Bectileth, and pitched from Bectileth near the mountain which is at the left hand of the upper Cilicia.22 Then he took all his army, his footmen, and horsemen and chariots, and went from thence into the hill country;23 And destroyed Phud and Lud, and spoiled all the children of Rasses, and the children of Israel, which were toward the wilderness at the south of the land of the Chellians.24 Then he went over Euphrates, and went through Mesopotamia, and destroyed all the high cities that were upon the river Arbonai, till ye come to the sea.25 And he took the borders of Cilicia, and killed all that resisted him, and came to the borders of Japheth, which were toward the south, over against Arabia.26 He compassed also all the children of Madian, and burned up their tabernacles, and spoiled their sheepcotes.27 Then he went down into the plain of Damascus in the time of wheat harvest, and burnt up all their fields, and destroyed their flocks and herds, also he spoiled their cities, and utterly wasted their countries, and smote all their young men with the edge of the sword.28 Therefore the fear and dread of him fell upon all the inhabitants of the sea coasts, which were in Sidon and Tyrus, and them that dwelt in Sur and Ocina, and all that dwelt in Jemnaan; and they that dwelt in Azotus and Ascalon feared him greatly.

Chapter 3 1 So they sent ambassadors unto him to treat of peace, saying,2 Behold, we the servants of Nabuchodonosor the great king lie before thee; use us as shall be good in thy sight.3 Behold, our houses, and all our places, and all our fields of wheat, and flocks, and herds, and all the lodges of our tents lie before thy face; use them as it pleaseth thee.4 Behold, even our cities and the inhabitants thereof are thy servants; come and deal with them as seemeth good unto thee.5 So the men came to Holofernes, and declared unto him after this manner.6 Then came he down toward the sea coast, both he and his army, and set garrisons in the high cities, and took out of them chosen men for aid.7 So they and all the country round about received them with garlands, with dances, and with timbrels.
