The Book of Judith, Chapter 1

1 Arphaxad itaque, rex Medorum, subjugaverat multas gentes imperio suo, et ipse ædificavit civitatem potentissimam, quam appellavit Ecbatanis, 2 ex lapidibus quadratis et sectis : fecit muros ejus in altitudinem cubitorum septuaginta, et in latitudinem cubitorum triginta : turres vero ejus posuit in altitudinem cubitorum centum. 3 Per quadrum vero earum latus utrumque vicenorum pedum spatio tendebatur, posuitque portas ejus in altitudinem turrium : 4 et gloriabatur quasi potens in potentia exercitus sui, et in gloria quadrigarum suarum.

5 Anno igitur duodecimo regni sui, Nabuchodonosor rex Assyriorum, qui regnabat in Ninive civitate magna, pugnavit contra Arphaxad, et obtinuit eum6 in campo magno qui appellatur Ragau, circa Euphraten, et Tigrin, et Jadason, in campo Erioch regis Elicorum.7 Tunc exaltatum est regnum Nabuchodonosor, et cor ejus elevatum est : et misit ad omnes qui habitabant in Cilicia, et Damasco, et Libano,8 et ad gentes quæ sunt in Carmelo et Cedar, et inhabitantes Galilæam in campo magno Esdrelon,9 et ad omnes qui erant in Samaria, et trans flumen Jordanem usque ad Jerusalem, et omnem terram Jesse quousque perveniatur ad terminos Æthiopiæ.10 Ad hos omnes misit nuntios Nabuchodonosor rex Assyriorum :11 qui omnes uno animo contradixerunt, et remiserunt eos vacuos, et sine honore abjecerunt.12 Tunc indignatus Nabuchodonosor rex adversus omnem terram illam, juravit per thronum et regnum suum quod defenderet se de omnibus regionibus his.

1 Arphaxad itaque, rex Medorum, subjugaverat multas gentes imperio suo, et ipse ædificavit civitatem potentissimam, quam appellavit Ecbatanis, 2 ex lapidibus quadratis et sectis : fecit muros ejus in altitudinem cubitorum septuaginta, et in latitudinem cubitorum triginta : turres vero ejus posuit in altitudinem cubitorum centum. 1 Und so hatte Arphaxad, der König der Meder, viele Nationen unter seine Herrschaft gebracht, und er baute eine sehr mächtige Stadt, die er Ekbatana nannte, 2 aus quadratischen und behauenen Steinen; er baute ihre Mauern in der Höhe von siebzig Ellen und in der Breite dreißig Ellen, und seine Türme setzte er hundert Ellen hoch. 1 Arphaxad Media brought many nations government, and has built a very strong city, which he called, 2 of stones cut and caused its walls to the height of seventy, and the width of thirty towers were put on high was one hundred. 1 Arphaxad médias a beaucoup de gouvernements des nations, et a construit une ville très forte, qu'il appelait, 2 des pierres taillées et fit ses murs à la hauteur de soixante-dix, et la largeur de trente tours ont été mis en haut était une centaine. 3 Per quadrum vero earum latus utrumque vicenorum pedum spatio tendebatur, posuitque portas ejus in altitudinem turrium : 4 et gloriabatur quasi potens in potentia exercitus sui, et in gloria quadrigarum suarum. 3 Und jede Seite von ihnen war quadratisch und erstreckte sich in einem Abstand von zwanzig Fuß, und er setzte ihre Tore auf die Höhe der Türme die Herrlichkeit seiner Streitwagen. 3 on the square, each side space of twenty feet, and set up its doors to the height of the towers 4 and glorified it with the power of his army and in the glory of his chariots.

5 Anno igitur duodecimo regni sui, Nabuchodonosor rex Assyriorum, qui regnabat in Ninive civitate magna, pugnavit contra Arphaxad, et obtinuit eum6 in campo magno qui appellatur Ragau, circa Euphraten, et Tigrin, et Jadason, in campo Erioch regis Elicorum.7 Tunc exaltatum est regnum Nabuchodonosor, et cor ejus elevatum est : et misit ad omnes qui habitabant in Cilicia, et Damasco, et Libano,8 et ad gentes quæ sunt in Carmelo et Cedar, et inhabitantes Galilæam in campo magno Esdrelon,9 et ad omnes qui erant in Samaria, et trans flumen Jordanem usque ad Jerusalem, et omnem terram Jesse quousque perveniatur ad terminos Æthiopiæ.10 Ad hos omnes misit nuntios Nabuchodonosor rex Assyriorum :11 qui omnes uno animo contradixerunt, et remiserunt eos vacuos, et sine honore abjecerunt.12 Tunc indignatus Nabuchodonosor rex adversus omnem terram illam, juravit per thronum et regnum suum quod defenderet se de omnibus regionibus his. 5 In the twelfth year of his reign, Nebuchadnezzar king of Assyria who reigned in Nineveh, a great city, fought against Arphaxad and conquered him in the great plain which is called Ragau, near the Euphrates, and Tigris, and Jadason, in the plain of Erioch king of the Elicians. It is the kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar, and his heart was lifted up, and he sent to all who dwelt in Cilicia, and Damascus, and Libanus,8 and to the nations that are in Carmel and Kedar, and those who dwelt in Galilee, in the great plain of Esdrelon,9 and to all who were in Samaria, and beyond the river Jordan as far as Jerusalem, and all the land of Jesse until it reaches the border of Ethiopia.10 To all these did Nebuchadnezzar king of the Assyrians send messengers. King Nebuchadnezzar being enraged against all that land, swore by his throne and kingdom that he would defend himself from all these countries.
