[b-hebrew] Book of Judith

Er, could it be that Pere assumes Judith must be *originally* written in Hebrew?
I don't think this is supposed to be the case, and certainly a Hebrew original is not extant.
That could be one reason (as suggested by someone a bit earlier) that it was left out of the canon (although we don't know the exact criteria used to decide what went in and what was left out).

Dear Pere,

I don't know of an online translation of Judith into Hebrew. The two printed
translations that I know of (I'm sure that there are others) are by M.
Simon, in the second volume of the Hebrew Apocrypha edited by A. Kahana from
1956 and that of Y.M. Grintz from 1957. But why read a translation into
Hebrew, and not into your own language?
