2 Maccabees 2:20

“And the warres against Antiochus Epiphanes, & Eupator his sonne,”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 2:20

17. We hope also that the God, that deliuered all his people, and gaue them all an heritage, and the kingdome, and the priesthood, and the Sanctuarie, 18. As he promised in the lawe, will shortly haue mercy vpon vs, and gather vs together out of euery land vnder heauen into the holy place: for he hath deliuered vs out of great troubles, and hath purified the place. 19. Now as concerning Iudas Maccabeus, and his brethren, and the purification of the great Temple, and the dedication of the altar, 20. And the warres against Antiochus Epiphanes, & Eupator his sonne, 21. And the manifest signes that came from heauen, vnto those that behaued themselues manfully to their honour for Iudaisme: so that being but a few, they ouercame the whole country, and chased barbarous multitudes, 22. And recouered againe the Temple renowned all the world ouer, and freed the citie, and vpheld the lawes, which were going downe, the Lord being gracious vnto them with al fauour: 23. All these things (I say) being declared by Iason of Cyrene in fiue books, we will assay to abridge in one volume.
