30. Notwithstāding when Maccabeus saw that Nicanor began to bee churlish vnto him, and that he entreated him more roughly then he was wont, perceiuing þt 31. But the other knowing that he was notably preuented by Iudas policie, came into the great and holy Temple, and commanded the Priestes that were offering their vsual sacrifices, to deliuer him the man. 32. And whē they sware that they could not tel where the man was, whō he sought, 33. Hee stretched out his right hand toward the Temple, & made an oath in this maner: If you wil not deliuer me Iudas as a prisoner, I will lay this Temple of God euen with the ground, and I will breake downe the Altar, and erect a notable temple vnto Bacchus. 34. After these words he departed; then the Priests lift vp their handes towards heauen, & besought him þt 35. Thou, O Lord of all things, who hast neede of nothing, wast pleased that the Temple of thine habitation should be among vs. 36. Therefore now, O holy Lord of all holinesse, keepe this house euer vndefiled, which lately was cleansed, and stop euery vnrighteous mouth.
