“Now will wee declare the acts of Antiochus Eupator, who was the sonne of this wicked man, gathering briefly the calamities of the warres.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 10:10

7. Therefore they bare branches, and faire boughes and palmes also, and sang Psalmes vnto him, that had giuen them good successe in clensing his place. 8. They ordeined also by a common statute, and decree, That euery yeere those dayes should be kept of the whole nation of the Iewes. 9. And this was the ende of Antiochus called Epiphanes. 10. Now will wee declare the acts of Antiochus Eupator, who was the sonne of this wicked man, gathering briefly the calamities of the warres. 11. So when he was come to the crowne, he set one Lysias ouer the affaires of his Realme, and appointed him chiefe gouernour of Coelosyria and Phenice. 12. For Ptolomeus that was called Macron, chosing rather to doe iustice vnto the Iewes, for the wrong that had bene done vnto them, endeuoured to continue peace with them. 13. Whereupon being accused of [the kings] friends, before Eupator, & called traitor at euery word, because he had left Cyprus that Philometor had cōmitted vnto him, & departed to Antiochus Epiphanes; and seeing that hee was in no honorable place, he was so discouraged, that he poysoned himselfe and died.
