“But when hee drew neere, they that were with Maccabeus, turned themselues to pray vnto God, and sprinckled earth vpon their heads, and girded their loynes with sackcloth,”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 10:25

22. So he slew those that were found traitors, and immediatly tooke the two castles. 23. And hauing good successe with his weapons in all things hee tooke in hand, hee slew in the two holdes, more then twentie thousand. 24. Now Timotheus whom the Iewes had ouercome before, when he had gathered a great multitude of forraine forces, and horses out of Asia not a few, came as though hee would take Iewrie by force of armes. 25. But when hee drew neere, they that were with Maccabeus, turned themselues to pray vnto God, and sprinckled earth vpon their heads, and girded their loynes with sackcloth, 26. And fell downe at the foot of the Altar, and besought him to be mercifull to them, and to be an enemie to their enemies, and an aduersarie to their aduersaries, as the Law declareth. 27. So after the prayer, they tooke their weapons, & went on further from the city: and when they drew neere to their enemies, they kept by themselues. 28. Now the Sunne being newly risen, they ioyned both together; the one part hauing, together with their vertue, their refuge also vnto the Lord, for a pledge of their successe and victorie: the other side making their rage leader of their battell.
