Judith praises General Holofernes (Jdt 11:8-11:8)

“We have heard of your wisdom and skill.

It is reported throughout the whole world

That you are the best in the whole kingdom,

The most informed,

The most astonishing in military strategy.”

Judith then turned to the general himself. She knew of his wisdom and skill. Everyone knew about it. He was the best in the whole kingdom. He was the most informed and the most astonishing military strategist. Flattery will get you everywhere.
