King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 11:13

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. 15. Then Maccabeus consented to all that Lysias desired, being carefull of the common good; and whatsoeuer Maccabeus wrote vnto Lysias concerning the Iewes, the king granted it. 16. For there were letters written vnto the Iewes from Lysias, to this effect: Lysias vnto the people of the Iewes, sendeth greeting.
