Bathing in the garden (Dan 13:15-13:16)


While they were watching

For an opportune day,

Susanna went in,

As before,

With only two maids.

She wished to bathe

In the garden.

It was a hot day.

No one was there,

Except the two elders,

Who had hidden themselves.

They were watching her.”

The two elder judges kept looking for the right moment. Apparently, that day had come. As it was a hot day, Susanna, with her two female maids, wanted to take a bath in the garden. She did not know that the two elder judges had hid themselves in the garden to watch her.
