1 Maccabees 8:23

“Good successe be to the Romans and to the people of the Iewes, by Sea, and by land for euer: the sword also and enemie, be farre from them.”

King James Version (KJV)

1 Maccabees 8:23

20. Iudas Maccabeus with his brethren, and the people of the Iewes, haue sent vs vnto you, to make a confederacie, and peace with you, and that we might be registred, your confederats and friends. 21. So that matter pleased the Romanes well. 22. And this is the copie of the Epistle which (the Senate) wrote backe againe, in tables of brasse: and sent to Ierusalem, that there they might haue by them a memorial of peace & confederacy. 23. Good successe be to the Romans and to the people of the Iewes, by Sea, and by land for euer: the sword also and enemie, be farre from them. 24. If there come first any warre vpon the Romans or any of their confederats throughout all their dominion, 25. The people of the Iewes shall helpe them, as the time shall be appointed, with all their heart. 26. Neither shal they giue any thing, vnto them that make war vpon them, or aide them with victuals, weapons, money, or ships, as it hath seemed good vnto the Romans, but they shall keepe their couenant without taking any thing therefore.
