- See Book of Judith about another later Judith in Jewish history.
Judith is the name of one of the two Hittite wives of Esau in the Book of Genesis 26:34. Reportedly, Esau's two wives were a great deal of annoyance to his parents Isaac and Rebekah. As with in-laws in contemporary times, it is not uncommon for a few families to be grieved or inconvenienced by their children's spouses. It is written that when Esau was age forty, he took Judith, a Hittite and the daughter of Beeri, as his wife along with Bashemath, another Hittite and the daughter of Elon. The two wives were a grief of mind unto Isaac and Rebekah as written in Genesis 26:35.
