King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:27

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. 28. Now when the battell was done, returning againe with ioy, they knew that Nicanor lay dead in his harnesse. 29. Then they made a great shout, and a noise, praising the Almighty in their owne language: 30. And Iudas, who was euer the chiefe defender of the citizens both in body, and minde, and who continued his loue towards his countrymen all his life, commanded to strike off Nicanors head, and his hand, with his shoulder, & bring them to Ierusalem.
