King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:6

3. Then this most vngracious wretch demanded, if there were a mightie one in heauen that had commanded the Sabbath day to be kept. 4. And when they said, There is in heauen a liuing Lord, and mightie, who commanded the seuenth day to be kept, 5. Then said the other, And I also am mightie vpon earth, & I cōmand to take armes, and to do the kings busines: yet he obteined not to haue his wicked wil done. 6. So Nicanor in exceeding pride and haughtinesse, determined to set vp a publike moument of his victorie ouer Iudas, and them that were with him. 7. But Maccabeus had euer sure confidence that the Lord would helpe him. 8. Wherfore he exhorted his people not to feare the comming of the heathen against them, but to remember the helpe which in former times they had receiued from heauen, and now to expect the victory, and aid which should come vnto them from the Almightie. 9. And so comforting them out of the law, and the prophets, and withall putting them in mind of the battels that they won afore, he made them more cheerefull.
