2 Maccabees 14:25

“He praied him also to take a wife, and to beget children: so he maried, was quiet, and tooke part of this life.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 14:25

22. Iudas placed armed men ready in conuenient places, lest some treachery should bee suddenly practised by the enemies; so they made a peaceable cōference. 23. Now Nicanor abode in Ierusalem, and did no hurt, but sent away the people that came flocking vnto him. 24. And hee would not willingly haue Iudas out of his sight: for hee loued the man from his heart. 25. He praied him also to take a wife, and to beget children: so he maried, was quiet, and tooke part of this life. 26. But Alcimus perceiuing the loue that was betwixt them, and considering the couenants that were made, came to Demetrius, and tolde him that Nicanor was not well affected towards the state, for that he had ordained Iudas, a traitor to his realme, to be the kings successour. 27. Then the king being in a rage, and prouoked with the accusations of the most wicked man, wrote to Nicanor, signifying that he was much displeased with the couenants, and commaunding him that hee should send Maccabeus prisoner in all haste vnto Antioch. 28. When this came to Nicanors hearing, he was much cōfounded in himselfe, and tooke it grieuously, that hee should make voyd the articles which were agreed vpon, the man being in no fault.
