“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.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:24

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. 27. So that fighting with their hands, and praying vnto God with their hearts, they slew no lesse then thirty and fiue thousand men: for through the appearance of God, they were greatly cheered.
