King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:23

20. And now when as all looked what should bee the triall, & the enemies were already come neere, and the armie was set in aray, and the beasts conueniently placed, and the horsemen set in wings: 21. Maccabeus seeing the comming of the multitude, and the diuers preparations of armour, and the fiercenesse of the beasts, stretched out his hands towards heauen, and called vpon the Lord, that worketh wonders, knowing that victorie commeth not by armes, but euen as it seemeth good to him, he giueth it to such as are worthy: 22. Therefore in his prayer he said after this maner: O Lord, thou diddest send thine Angel in the time of Ezekias king of Iudea, and diddest slay in the host of Sennacherib, an hundred, fourescore, and fiue thousand. 23. Wherfore now also O Lord of heauen, send a good Angel before vs, for a feare, and dread vnto them. 24. And through the might of thine arme, let those bee stricken with terror, that come against thy holy people to blaspheme. And he ended thus. 25. Then Nicanor, and they that were with him came forward with trumpets, and songs. 26. But Iudas, and his company encountred the enemies with inuocation, and prayer.
