2 Maccabees 10:30

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. 29. But when the battaile waxed strong, there appeared vnto the enemies from heauen, fiue comely men vpon horses, with bridles of golde, and two of them ledde the Iewes, 30. And tooke Maccabeus betwixt them, and couered him on euery side with their weapons, and kept him safe, but shot arrowes & lightenings against the enemies: so that being confounded with blindnesse, and full of trouble, they were killed. 31. And there were slaine [of footemen] twentie thousand and fiue hundred, and sixe hundred horsemen. 32. As for Timotheus himselfe, hee fled into a very strong holde, called Gazara, where Chereas was gouernour. 33. But they that were with Maccabeus, laid siege against the fortresse couragiously foure dayes.
