“And the letter of the king vnto the nation of the Iewes was after this maner: king Antiochus sendeth greeting vnto the counsel, & the rest of the Iewes”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 11:27

24. Wee vnderstand also that the Iewes would not consent to our father for to bee brought vnto the custome of the Gentiles, but had rather keepe their owne manner of liuing: for the which cause they require of vs that we should suffer thē to liue after their own lawes. 25. Wherefore our mind is, that this nation shall be in rest, and we haue determined to restore them their Temple, that they may liue according to the customes of their forefathers. 26. Thou shalt doe well therefore to send vnto them, and grant them peace, that whē they are certified of our mind, they may be of good comfort, & euer goe cheerefully about their owne affaires. 27. And the letter of the king vnto the nation of the Iewes was after this maner: king Antiochus sendeth greeting vnto the counsel, & the rest of the Iewes 28. If ye fare well, we haue our desire, we are also in good health. 29. Menelaus declared vnto vs, that your desire was to returne home, and to follow your owne businesse. 30. Wherefore they that will depart shall haue safe conduct, till the thirtieth day of Xanthicus with securitie.
