2 Maccabees 3:20

“And all holding their handes towards heauen, made supplication.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 3:20

17. For the man was so compassed with feare, and horror of the body, that it was manifest to them that looked vpon him, what sorrow hee had now in his heart. 18. Others ran flocking out of their houses to the generall Supplication, because the place was like to come into contempt. 19. And the women girt with sackecloth vnder their breasts, abounded in the streetes, and the virgins that were kept in, ran some to the gates, and some to the walles, and others looked out of the windowes: 20. And all holding their handes towards heauen, made supplication. 21. Then it would haue pitied a man to see the falling downe of the multitude of all sorts, and the feare of the hie Priest, being in such an agony. 22. They then called vpon the Almightie Lord, to keepe the things committed of trust, safe and sure, for those that had committed them. 23. Neuerthelesse Heliodorus executed that which was decreed.
