2 Maccabees 15:38

“And if I haue done well, and as is fitting the story, it is that which I desired: but if slenderly, and meanly, it is that which I could attaine vnto.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:38

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. 37. Thus went it with Nicanor, and from that time forth, the Hebrewes had the citie in their power: and heere will I make an end. 38. And if I haue done well, and as is fitting the story, it is that which I desired: but if slenderly, and meanly, it is that which I could attaine vnto. 39. For as it is hurtfull to drinke wine, or water alone; & as wine mingled with water is pleasant, and delighteth the tast: euen so speech finely framed, delighteth the eares of them that read the storie. And heere shall be an end.
