And when he wyllede to be honorede for a God in Israel, Iudith the wedowe did sle Olofernes, prince of his cheuallry, in the sege of Bethulia, in the secunde yere of the reigne of Cambises. Wherefore Cambises, in the vthe yere of his reigne, wastede Egipte, despisenge the rites of theyme, destroyede theire temples, whiche, goenge from that cuntre, diede in the cite [folio 133a] of Damascus in the viijthe yere of his reigne.

In whiche seete this sentence was writen: "O thow Iugge, syttenge in this seete, stonde inflexible, expelle ȝiftes from thy hondes, and preiers from thyne eires. The skynne of thy fader may be to the a lawnterne and liȝhte, on whiche skynne thow syttes, occupienge the place of thy fader."*. [Trogus, libro primo, et Petrus, capitulo centesimo octogesimo.]
