As she bathes in her garden, having sent her attendants away, two elders, having previously said goodbye to each other, bump into each other again when they spy on her bathing. The two men realize they both lust for Susanna. When she makes her way back to her house, they accost her, demanding she have sex with them. When she refuses, they have her arrested, claiming that the reason she sent her maids away was to be alone as she was having sex with a young man under a tree
She refuses to be blackmailed and is arrested and about to be put to death for adultery when the young Daniel interrupts, The elders are later questioned and found lying so they are put to death and virtue triumphs.
