King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:2

1. But Nicanor hearing that Iudas and his company were in the strong places about Samaria, resolued without any danger to set vpon them on the sabbath day. 2. Neuertheles, the Iewes that were compelled to go with him, said, O destroy not so cruelly and barbarously, but giue honour to that day, which he that seeth all things, hath honoured with holinesse aboue [other dayes.] 3. Then this most vngracious wretch demanded, if there were a mightie one in heauen that had commanded the Sabbath day to be kept. 4. And when they said, There is in heauen a liuing Lord, and mightie, who commanded the seuenth day to be kept, 5. Then said the other, And I also am mightie vpon earth, & I cōmand to take armes, and to do the kings busines: yet he obteined not to haue his wicked wil done.
