“Iohn and Absalon, who were sent from you, deliuered me the petition subscribed, and made request for the performance of the contents thereof.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 11:17

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. 17. Iohn and Absalon, who were sent from you, deliuered me the petition subscribed, and made request for the performance of the contents thereof. 18. Therefore what things soeuer were meet to be reported to the king, I haue declared them, and he hath granted as much as might be. 19. If then you wil keepe your selues loyall to the state, hereafter also will I endeuour to be a meanes of your good. 20. But of the particulars I haue giuen order, both to these, & the other that came from me, to commune with you.
