“And when he had cut out the tongue of that vngodly Nicanor, he commanded that they should giue it by pieces vnto the foules, and hang vp the reward of his madnesse before the Temple.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:33

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. 31. So when he was there, and had called them of his nation together, and set the priests before the altar, he sent for them that were of the Towre, 32. And shewed them vile Nicanors head, and the hand of that blasphemer, which with proud brags he had stretched out against the holy Temple of the Almightie. 33. And when he had cut out the tongue of that vngodly Nicanor, he commanded that they should giue it by pieces vnto the foules, and hang vp the reward of his madnesse before the Temple. 34. So euery man praised towards the heauen the glorious Lord, saying, Blessed be hee that hath kept his owne place vndefiled. 35. He hanged also Nicanors head vpon the Towre, an euident, and manifest signe vnto all, of the helpe of the Lord. 36. And they ordained all with a common decree, in no case to let that day passe without solemnitie: but to celebrate the thirteenth day of the twelfth moneth, which in the Syrian tongue is called Adar, the day before Mardocheus day.
