King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 11:11

8. And as they were at Ierusalem, there appeared before them on horsebacke, one in white clothing, shaking his armour of gold. 9. Then they praised the mercifull God altogether, and tooke heart, insomuch that they were ready not onely to fight with men, but with most cruell beasts, & to pierce through wals of yron. 10. Thus they marched forward in their armour, hauing an helper from heauen: for the Lord was mercifull vnto them. 11. And giuing a charge vpō their enemies like lions, they slew eleuen thousand footmen, & sixteene hundred horsemen, and put all the other to flight. 12. Many of them also being wounded, escaped naked, and Lysias himselfe fled away shamefully, and so escaped. 13. Who as hee was a man of vnderstanding, casting with himselfe what losse he had had, and considering that the Hebrewes could not be ouercome, because the Almighty God helped them, he sent vnto them, 14. And perswaded them to agree to all reasonable conditions, & [promised] that hee would perswade the king, that he must needs be a friend vnto them.
