The Israelites have no false gods (Jdt 8:18-8:20)

“For never in our generation,

Nor in these present days,

Has there been any tribe, family, people, or town of ours

That worshiped gods made with hands,

As was done in days gone by.

That was why our ancestors were handed over to the sword.

They were plundered.

They suffered a great catastrophe before our enemies.

But we know no other god but him.

We hope that he will not disdain us or any of our nation.”

Unlike times past, when their ancestors strayed, the Israelites today in this generation have never worshipped gods made with human hands. Our tribe, our family, our people, and our towns have never worshipped human gods. Our ancestors did and they suffered the consequences of death, plundering, and catastrophes. We know no other god except our God. We can only hope that he will not disdain us or anyone of our country.
