Then went Simon into Galilee, where he fought many battles with the heathen, so that the heathen were discomfited by him.
1 Maccabees 5:22
And he pursued them unto the gate of Ptolemais; and there were slain of the heathen about three thousand men, whose spoils he took.
1 Maccabees 5:23
And those that were in Galilee, and in Arbattis, with their wives and their children, and all that they had, took he away with him, and brought them into Judea with great joy.
1 Maccabees 5:26
And how that many of them were shut up in Bosora, and Bosor, and Alema, Casphor, Maked, and Carnaim; all these cities are strong and great:
1 Maccabees 5:27
And that they were shut up in the rest of the cities of the country of Galaad, and that against to morrow they had appointed to bring their host against the forts, and to take them, and to destroy them all in one day.
1 Maccabees 5:34
Then the host of Timotheus, knowing that it was Maccabeus, fled from him: wherefore he smote them with a great slaughter; so that there were killed of them that day about eight thousand men.
1 Maccabees 5:44
But they took the city, and burned the temple with all that were therein. Thus was Carnaim subdued, neither could they stand any longer before Judas.
1 Maccabees 5:45
Then Judas gathered together all the Israelites that were in the country of Galaad, from the least unto the greatest, even their wives, and their children, and their stuff, a very great host, to the end they might come into the land of Judea.
1 Maccabees 5:51
Who then slew all the males with the edge of the sword, and rased the city, and took the spoils thereof, and passed through the city over them that were slain.
1 Maccabees 5:54
So they went up to mount Sion with joy and gladness, where they offered burnt offerings, because not one of them were slain until they had returned in peace.
1 Maccabees 5:55
Now what time as Judas and Jonathan were in the land of Galaad, and Simon his brother in Galilee before Ptolemais,
1 Maccabees 5:60
And so it was, that Joseph and Azaras were put to flight, and pursued unto the borders of Judea: and there were slain that day of the people of Israel about two thousand men.
1 Maccabees 5:61
Thus was there a great overthrow among the children of Israel, because they were not obedient unto Judas and his brethren, but thought to do some valiant act.
1 Maccabees 5:63
Howbeit the man Judas and his brethren were greatly renowned in the sight of all Israel, and of all the heathen, wheresoever their name was heard of;
1 Maccabees 5:67
At that time certain priests, desirous to shew their valour, were slain in battle, for that they went out to fight unadvisedly.
1 Maccabees 6:2
And that there was in it a very rich temple, wherein were coverings of gold, and breastplates, and shields, which Alexander, son of Philip, the Macedonian king, who reigned first among the Grecians, had left there.
1 Maccabees 6:5
Moreover there came one who brought him tidings into Persia, that the armies, which went against the land of Judea, were put to flight:
1 Maccabees 6:6
And that Lysias, who went forth first with a great power was driven away of the Jews; and that they were made strong by the armour, and power, and store of spoils, which they had gotten of the armies, whom they had destroyed:
1 Maccabees 6:12
But now I remember the evils that I did at Jerusalem, and that I took all the vessels of gold and silver that were therein, and sent to destroy the inhabitants of Judea without a cause.
1 Maccabees 6:18
About this time they that were in the tower shut up the Israelites round about the sanctuary, and sought always their hurt, and the strengthening of the heathen.
1 Maccabees 6:21
Howbeit certain of them that were besieged got forth, unto whom some ungodly men of Israel joined themselves:
1 Maccabees 6:35
Moreover they divided the beasts among the armies, and for every elephant they appointed a thousand men, armed with coats of mail, and with helmets of brass on their heads; and beside this, for every beast were ordained five hundred horsemen of the best.
1 Maccabees 6:36
These were ready at every occasion: wheresoever the beast was, and whithersoever the beast went, they went also, neither departed they from him.
1 Maccabees 6:37
And upon the beasts were there strong towers of wood, which covered every one of them, and were girt fast unto them with devices: there were also upon every one two and thirty strong men, that fought upon them, beside the Indian that ruled him.
1 Maccabees 6:41
Wherefore all that heard the noise of their multitude, and the marching of the company, and the rattling of the harness, were moved: for the army was very great and mighty.
1 Maccabees 6:42
Then Judas and his host drew near, and entered into battle, and there were slain of the king's army six hundred men.
1 Maccabees 6:45
Wherefore he ran upon him courageously through the midst of the battle, slaying on the right hand and on the left, so that they were divided from him on both sides.
1 Maccabees 6:49
But with them that were in Bethsura he made peace: for they came out of the city, because they had no victuals there to endure the siege, it being a year of rest to the land.
1 Maccabees 6:53
Yet at the last, their vessels being without victuals, (for that it was the seventh year, and they in Judea that were delivered from the Gentiles, had eaten up the residue of the store;)
1 Maccabees 6:54
There were but a few left in the sanctuary, because the famine did so prevail against them, that they were fain to disperse themselves, every man to his own place.
1 Maccabees 6:60
So the king and the princes were content: wherefore he sent unto them to make peace; and they accepted thereof.
1 Maccabees 7:11
But they gave no heed to their words; for they saw that they were come with a great power.
1 Maccabees 7:13
Now the Assideans were the first among the children of Israel that sought peace of them:
1 Maccabees 7:29
He came therefore to Judas, and they saluted one another peaceably. Howbeit the enemies were prepared to take away Judas by violence.
1 Maccabees 7:32
Where there were slain of Nicanor's side about five thousand men, and the rest fled into the city of David.
1 Maccabees 7:41
O Lord, when they that were sent from the king of the Assyrians blasphemed, thine angel went out, and smote an hundred fourscore and five thousand of them.
1 Maccabees 7:46
Whereupon they came forth out of all the towns of Judea round about, and closed them in; so that they, turning back upon them that pursued them, were all slain with the sword, and not one of them was left.
1 Maccabees 8:1
Now Judas had heard of the the Romans, that they were mighty and valiant men, and such as would lovingly accept all that joined themselves unto them, and make a league of amity with all that came unto them;
1 Maccabees 8:2
And that they were men of great valour. It was told him also of their wars and noble acts which they had done among the Galatians, and how they had conquered them, and brought them under tribute;
1 Maccabees 8:4
And that by their policy and patience they had conquered all the place, though it were very far from them; and the kings also that came against them from the uttermost part of the earth, till they had discomfited them, and given them a great overthrow, so that the rest did give them tribute every year:
1 Maccabees 8:12
But with their friends and such as relied upon them they kept amity: and that they had conquered kingdoms both far and nigh, insomuch as all that heard of their name were afraid of them:
1 Maccabees 8:13
Also that, whom they would help to a kingdom, those reign; and whom again they would, they displace: finally, that they were greatly exalted:
1 Maccabees 8:16
And that they committed their government to one man every year, who ruled over all their country, and that all were obedient to that one, and that there was neither envy nor emmulation among them.
1 Maccabees 9:1
Furthermore, when Demetrius heard the Nicanor and his host were slain in battle, he sent Bacchides and Alcimus into the land of Judea the second time, and with them the chief strength of his host:
1 Maccabees 9:6
Who seeing the multitude of the other army to he so great were sore afraid; whereupon many conveyed themselves out of the host, insomuch as abode of them no more but eight hundred men.
1 Maccabees 9:11
With that the host of Bacchides removed out of their tents, and stood over against them, their horsemen being divided into two troops, and their slingers and archers going before the host and they that marched in the foreward were all mighty men.
1 Maccabees 9:14
Now when Judas perceived that Bacchides and the strength of his army were on the right side, he took with him all the hardy men,
1 Maccabees 9:16
But when they of the left wing saw that they of the right wing were discomfited, they followed upon Judas and those that were with him hard at the heels from behind:
1 Maccabees 9:17
Whereupon there was a sore battle, insomuch as many were slain on both parts.
1 Maccabees 9:22
As for the other things concerning Judas and his wars, and the noble acts which he did, and his greatness, they are not written: for they were very many.
1 Maccabees 9:33
Then Jonathan, and Simon his brother, and all that were with him, perceiving that, fled into the wilderness of Thecoe, and pitched their tents by the water of the pool Asphar.
1 Maccabees 9:37
After this came word to Jonathan and Simon his brother, that the children of Jambri made a great marriage, and were bringing the bride from Nadabatha with a great train, as being the daughter of one of the great princes of Chanaan.
1 Maccabees 9:40
Then Jonathan and they that were with him rose up against them from the place where they lay in ambush, and made a slaughter of them in such sort, as many fell down dead, and the remnant fled into the mountain, and they took all their spoils.
1 Maccabees 9:48
Then Jonathan and they that were with him leapt into Jordan, and swam over unto the other bank: howbeit the other passed not over Jordan unto them.
1 Maccabees 9:49
So there were slain of Bacchides' side that day about a thousand men.
1 Maccabees 9:60
Then removed he, and came with a great host, and sent letters privily to his adherents in Judea, that they should take Jonathan and those that were with him: howbeit they could not, because their counsel was known unto them.
1 Maccabees 9:61
Wherefore they took of the men of the country, that were authors of that mischief, about fifty persons, and slew them.
1 Maccabees 9:62
Afterward Jonathan, and Simon, and they that were with him, got them away to Bethbasi, which is in the wilderness, and they repaired the decays thereof, and made it strong.
1 Maccabees 9:63
Which thing when Bacchides knew, he gathered together all his host, and sent word to them that were of Judea.
1 Maccabees 10:6
Wherefore he gave him authority to gather together an host, and to provide weapons, that he might aid him in battle: he commanded also that the hostages that were in the tower should be delivered him.
1 Maccabees 10:7
Then came Jonathan to Jerusalem, and read the letters in the audience of all the people, and of them that were in the tower:
1 Maccabees 10:8
Who were sore afraid, when they heard that the king had given him authority to gather together an host.
1 Maccabees 10:12
Then the strangers, that were in the fortresses which Bacchides had built, fled away;
1 Maccabees 10:33
Moreover I freely set at liberty every one of the Jews, that were carried captives out of the land of Judea into any part of my kingdom, and I will that all my officers remit the tributes even of their cattle.
1 Maccabees 10:47
But with Alexander they were well pleased, because he was the first that entreated of true peace with them, and they were confederate with him always.
1 Maccabees 10:81
But the people stood still, as Jonathan had commanded them: and so the enemies' horses were tired.
1 Maccabees 10:82
Then brought Simon forth his host, and set them against the footmen, (for the horsemen were spent) who were discomfited by him, and fled.
1 Maccabees 10:84
But Jonathan set fire on Azotus, and the cities round about it, and took their spoils; and the temple of Dagon, with them that were fled into it, he burned with fire.
1 Maccabees 10:85
Thus there were burned and slain with the sword well nigh eight thousand men.
1 Maccabees 11:4
And when he came near to Azotus, they shewed him the temple of Dagon that was burnt, and Azotus and the suburbs thereof that were destroyed, and the bodies that were cast abroad and them that he had burnt in the battle; for they had made heaps of them by the way where he should pass.
1 Maccabees 11:18
King Ptolemee also died the third day after, and they that were in the strong holds were slain one of another.
1 Maccabees 11:20
At the same time Jonathan gathered together them that were in Judea to take the tower that was in Jerusalem: and he made many engines of war against it.
1 Maccabees 11:40
And lay sore upon him to deliver him this young Antiochus, that he might reign in his father's stead: he told him therefore all that Demetrius had done, and how his men of war were at enmity with him, and there he remained a long season.
1 Maccabees 11:45
Howbeit they that were of the city gathered themselves together into the midst of the city, to the number of an hundred and twenty thousand men, and would have slain the king.
1 Maccabees 11:51
With that they cast away their weapons, and made peace; and the Jews were honoured in the sight of the king, and in the sight of all that were in his realm; and they returned to Jerusalem, having great spoils.
1 Maccabees 11:63
Now when Jonathan heard that Demetrius' princes were come to Cades, which is in Galilee, with a great power, purposing to remove him out of the country,
1 Maccabees 11:69
So when they that lay in ambush rose out of their places and joined battle, all that were of Jonathan's side fled;
1 Maccabees 11:73
Now when his own men that were fled saw this, they turned again unto him, and with him pursued them to Cades, even unto their own tents, and there they camped.
1 Maccabees 11:74
So there were slain of the heathen that day about three thousand men: but Jonathan returned to Jerusalem.
1 Maccabees 12:7
There were letters sent in times past unto Onias the high priest from Darius, who reigned then among you, to signify that ye are our brethren, as the copy here underwritten doth specify.
1 Maccabees 12:24
Now when Jonathan heard that Demebius' princes were come to fight against him with a greater host than afore,
1 Maccabees 12:26
He sent spies also unto their tents, who came again, and told him that they were appointed to come upon them in the night season.
1 Maccabees 12:28
But when the adversaries heard that Jonathan and his men were ready for battle, they feared, and trembled in their hearts, and they kindled fires in their camp.
1 Maccabees 12:30
Then Jonathan pursued after them, but overtook them not: for they were gone over the river Eleutherus.
1 Maccabees 12:31
Wherefore Jonathan turned to the Arabians, who were called Zabadeans, and smote them, and took their spoils.
1 Maccabees 12:50
But when they knew that Jonathan and they that were with him were taken and slain, they encouraged one another; and went close together, prepared to fight.
1 Maccabees 12:51
They therefore that followed upon them, perceiving that they were ready to fight for their lives, turned back again.
1 Maccabees 12:52
Whereupon they all came into the land of Judea peaceably, and there they bewailed Jonathan, and them that were with him, and they were sore afraid; wherefore all Israel made great lamentation.
1 Maccabees 12:53
Then all the heathen that were round about then sought to destroy them: for said they, They have no captain, nor any to help them: now therefore let us make war upon them, and take away their memorial from among men.
1 Maccabees 13:11
Also he sent Jonathan the son of Absolom, and with him a great power, to Joppa: who casting out them that were therein remained there in it.
1 Maccabees 13:21
Now they that were in the tower sent messengers unto Tryphon, to the end that he should hasten his coming unto them by the wilderness, and send them victuals.
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 13:44
And they that were in the engine leaped into the city; whereupon there was a great uproar in the city:
1 Maccabees 13:47
So Simon was appeased toward them, and fought no more against them, but put them out of the city, and cleansed the houses wherein the idols were, and so entered into it with songs and thanksgiving.
1 Maccabees 13:49
They also of the tower in Jerusalem were kept so strait, that they could neither come forth, nor go into the country, nor buy, nor sell: wherefore they were in great distress for want of victuals, and a great number of them perished through famine.
1 Maccabees 14:13
Neither was there any left in the land to fight against them: yea, the kings themselves were overthrown in those days.
1 Maccabees 14:14
Moreover he strengthened all those of his people that were brought low: the law he searched out; and every contemner of the law and wicked person he took away.
1 Maccabees 14:16
