Judith goes slowly through the gates, followed by haggith carrying the baggage.
Take the sack and do as my lady hath ordained by me, haggith.
Now the fourth son of David was a beautiful young man, and tall, born to him of haggith his wife.
Judith, signing to haggith to stand aside, bows to the ground before Bagoas; then rises again.
And Adonias, the son of haggith, exalted himself, saying: I will be king.
The street is cleared, not without difficulty, and Ozias is left alone with haggith.
