King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 7:38

35. For thou hast not yet escaped the iudgement of Almightie God, who seeth all things. 36. For our brethren who now haue suffered a short paine, are dead vnder Gods Couenant of euerlasting life: but thou through the iudgement of God, shalt receiue iust punishment for thy pride. 37. But I, as my brethren, offer vp my body, and life for the Lawes of our fathers, beseeching God that he would speedily bee mercifull vnto our nation, and that thou by torments & plagues mayest confesse, that he alone is God; 38. And that in me, and my brethren, the wrath of the Almighty, which is iustly brought vpon all our nation, may cease. 39. Then the King being in a rage, handled him worse then all the rest, and took it grieuously that he was mocked. 40. So this man died vndefiled, and put his whole trust in the Lord. 41. Last of all after the sonnes, the mother died.
