2 Maccabees 10:9

“And this was the ende of Antiochus called Epiphanes.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 10:9

6. And they kept eight dayes with gladnes as in the feast of the Tabernacles, remembring that not long afore they had helde the feast of the Tabernacles, when as they wandered in the mountaines, and dennes, like beasts. 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.
