1 Maccabees 5:57
Wherefore they said, Let us also get us a name, and go fight against the heathen that are round about us.
1 Maccabees 6:23
We have been willing to serve thy father, and to do as he would have us, and to obey his commandments;
1 Maccabees 6:24

1 Maccabees 10:23
What have we done, that Alexander hath prevented us in making amity with the Jews to strengthen himself?
1 Maccabees 10:26
Whereas ye have kept covenants with us, and continued in our friendship, not joining yourselves with our enemies, we have heard hereof, and are glad.
1 Maccabees 10:27

1 Maccabees 10:53

1 Maccabees 10:70
Thou alone liftest up thyself against us, and I am laughed to scorn for thy sake, and reproached: and why dost thou vaunt thy power against us in the mountains?
1 Maccabees 10:71

1 Maccabees 12:10

1 Maccabees 12:11
We therefore at all times without ceasing, both in our feasts, and other convenient days, do remember you in the sacrifices which we offer, and in our prayers, as reason is, and as it becometh us to think upon our brethren:
1 Maccabees 12:13
As for ourselves, we have had great troubles and wars on every side, forsomuch as the kings that are round about us have fought against us.
1 Maccabees 12:15
For we have help from heaven that succoureth us, so as we are delivered from our enemies, and our enemies are brought under foot.
1 Maccabees 12:18

1 Maccabees 13:39
As for any oversight or fault committed unto this day, we forgive it, and the crown tax also, which ye owe us: and if there were any other tribute paid in Jerusalem, it shall no more be paid.
1 Maccabees 13:40
And look who are meet among you to be in our court, let then be enrolled, and let there be peace betwixt us.

2 Maccabees 1:7
What time as Demetrius reigned, in the hundred threescore and ninth year, we the Jews wrote unto you in the extremity of trouble that came upon us in those years, from the time that Jason and his company revolted from the holy land and kingdom,

2 Maccabees 1:20
Now after many years, when it pleased God, Neemias, being sent from the king of Persia, did send of the posterity of those priests that had hid it to the fire: but when they told us they found no fire, but thick water;

2 Maccabees 6:15

2 Maccabees 15:23
