King James Version (KJV)

1 Maccabees 15:28

25. So Antiochus the king camped against Dora, the second day, assaulting it continually, and making engins, by which meanes he shut vp Tryphon, that he could neither goe out nor in. 26. At that time Simon sent him two thousand chosen men to aide him: siluer also, and gold, and much armour. 27. Neuerthelesse, he would not receiue them, but brake all the couenants which he had made with him afore, and became strange vnto him. 28. Furthermore hee sent vnto him Athenobius, one of his friends to commune with him and say: you withhold Ioppe and Gazara with the towre that is in Ierusalem, which are cities of my realme. 29. The borders thereof yee haue wasted and done great hurt in the land, and got the dominion of many places within my kingdome. 30. Now therefore deliuer the cities which ye haue taken, and the tributes of the places whereof yee haue gotten dominion without the borders of Iudea. 31. Or else giue me for them fiue hundred talents of siluer, and for the harme that you haue done, and the tributes of the cities other fiue hundred talents: if not, we wil come and fight against you.
