Bel and the Dragon 1:6
Then said the king unto him, Thinkest thou not that Bel is a living God? seest thou not how much he eateth and drinketh every day?

Bel and the Dragon 1:10
Now the priests of Bel were threescore and ten, beside their wives and children. And the king went with Daniel into the temple of Bel.
Bel and the Dragon 1:11
So Bel's priests said, Lo, we go out: but thou, O king, set on the meat, and make ready the wine, and shut the door fast and seal it with thine own signet;
Bel and the Dragon 1:14
So when they were gone forth, the king set meats before Bel. Now Daniel had commanded his servants to bring ashes, and those they strewed throughout all the temple in the presence of the king alone: then went they out, and shut the door, and sealed it with the king's signet, and so departed.
Bel and the Dragon 1:16
In the morning betime the king arose, and Daniel with him.

Bel and the Dragon 1:20
And the king said, I see the footsteps of men, women, and children. And then the king was angry,
Bel and the Dragon 1:22
Therefore the king slew them, and delivered Bel into Daniel's power, who destroyed him and his temple.
Bel and the Dragon 1:24
And the king said unto Daniel, Wilt thou also say that this is of brass? lo, he liveth, he eateth and drinketh; thou canst not say that he is no living god: therefore worship him.
Bel and the Dragon 1:25

1 Maccabees 1:1
And it happened, after that Alexander son of Philip, the Macedonian, who came out of the land of Chettiim, had smitten Darius king of the Persians and Medes, that he reigned in his stead, the first over Greece,
1 Maccabees 1:10
And there came out of them a wicked root Antiochus surnamed Epiphanes, son of Antiochus the king, who had been an hostage at Rome, and he reigned in the hundred and thirty and seventh year of the kingdom of the Greeks.
1 Maccabees 1:13
Then certain of the people were so forward herein, that they went to the king, who gave them licence to do after the ordinances of the heathen:
1 Maccabees 1:18
And made war against Ptolemee king of Egypt: but Ptolemee was afraid of him, and fled; and many were wounded to death.
1 Maccabees 1:29
And after two years fully expired the king sent his chief collector of tribute unto the cities of Juda, who came unto Jerusalem with a great multitude,
1 Maccabees 1:41
Moreover king Antiochus wrote to his whole kingdom, that all should be one people,
1 Maccabees 1:42
And every one should leave his laws: so all the heathen agreed according to the commandment of the king.
1 Maccabees 1:44
For the king had sent letters by messengers unto Jerusalem and the cities of Juda that they should follow the strange laws of the land,
1 Maccabees 1:50
And whosoever would not do according to the commandment of the king, he said, he should die.
1 Maccabees 2:33
And they said unto them, Let that which ye have done hitherto suffice; come forth, and do according to the commandment of the king, and ye shall live.
1 Maccabees 3:26
Insomuch as his fame came unto the king, and all nations talked of the battles of Judas.
1 Maccabees 3:27
Now when king Antiochus heard these things, he was full of indignation: wherefore he sent and gathered together all the forces of his realm, even a very strong army.
1 Maccabees 3:32
So he left Lysias, a nobleman, and one of the blood royal, to oversee the affairs of the king from the river Euphrates unto the borders of Egypt:
1 Maccabees 3:37
So the king took the half of the forces that remained, and departed from Antioch, his royal city, the hundred forty and seventh year; and having passed the river Euphrates, he went through the high countries.
1 Maccabees 3:39
And with them he sent forty thousand footmen, and seven thousand horsemen, to go into the land of Juda, and to destroy it, as the king commanded.
1 Maccabees 3:42
Now when Judas and his brethren saw that miseries were multiplied, and that the forces did encamp themselves in their borders: for they knew how the king had given commandment to destroy the people, and utterly abolish them;
1 Maccabees 4:27
Who, when he heard thereof, was confounded and discouraged, because neither such things as he would were done unto Israel, nor such things as the king commanded him were come to pass.
1 Maccabees 6:1
About that time king Antiochus travelling through the high countries heard say, that Elymais in the country of Persia was a city greatly renowned for riches, silver, and gold;
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 6:8
Now when the king heard these words, he was astonished and sore moved: whereupon he laid him down upon his bed, and fell sick for grief, because it had not befallen him as he looked for.
1 Maccabees 6:16
So king Antiochus died there in the hundred forty and ninth year.
1 Maccabees 6:17
Now when Lysias knew that the king was dead, he set up Antiochus his son, whom he had brought up being young, to reign in his stead, and his name he called Eupator.
1 Maccabees 6:22
And they went unto the king, and said, How long will it be ere thou execute judgment, and avenge our brethren?
1 Maccabees 6:28
Now when the king heard this, he was angry, and gathered together all his friends, and the captains of his army, and those that had charge of the horse.
1 Maccabees 6:33
Then the king rising very early marched fiercely with his host toward Bathzacharias, where his armies made them ready to battle, and sounded the trumpets.
1 Maccabees 6:43
Eleazar also, surnamed Savaran, perceiving that one of the beasts, armed with royal harness, was higher than all the rest, and supposing that the king was upon him,
1 Maccabees 6:47
Howbeit the rest of the Jews seeing the strength of the king, and the violence of his forces, turned away from them.
1 Maccabees 6:48
Then the king's army went up to Jerusalem to meet them, and the king pitched his tents against Judea, and against mount Sion.
1 Maccabees 6:50
So the king took Bethsura, and set a garrison there to keep it.
1 Maccabees 6:55
At that time Lysias heard say, that Philip, whom Antiochus the king, whiles he lived, had appointed to bring up his son Antiochus, that he might be king,
1 Maccabees 6:57
Wherefore he went in all haste, and said to the king and the captains of the host and the company, We decay daily, and our victuals are but small, and the place we lay siege unto is strong, and the affairs of the kingdom lie upon us:
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 6:61
Also the king and the princes made an oath unto them: whereupon they went out of the strong hold.
1 Maccabees 6:62
Then the king entered into mount Sion; but when he saw the strength of the place, he broke his oath that he had made, and gave commandment to pull down the wall round about.
1 Maccabees 7:6
And they accused the people to the king, saying, Judas and his brethren have slain all thy friends, and driven us out of our own land.
1 Maccabees 7:8
Then the king chose Bacchides, a friend of the king, who ruled beyond the flood, and was a great man in the kingdom, and faithful to the king,
1 Maccabees 7:20
Then committed he the country to Alcimus, and left with him a power to aid him: so Bacchides went to the king.
1 Maccabees 7:25
On the other side, when Alcimus saw that Judas and his company had gotten the upper hand, and knew that he was not able to abide their force, he went again to the king, and said all the worst of them that he could.
1 Maccabees 7:26
Then the king sent Nicanor, one of his honourable princes, a man that bare deadly hate unto Israel, with commandment to destroy the people.
1 Maccabees 7:33
After this went Nicanor up to mount Sion, and there came out of the sanctuary certain of the priests and certain of the elders of the people, to salute him peaceably, and to shew him the burnt sacrifice that was offered for the king.
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 8:5
Beside this, how they had discomfited in battle Philip, and Perseus, king of the Citims, with others that lifted up themselves against them, and had overcome them:
1 Maccabees 8:6
How also Antiochus the great king of Asia, that came against them in battle, having an hundred and twenty elephants, with horsemen, and chariots, and a very great army, was discomfited by them;
1 Maccabees 8:8
And the country of India, and Media and Lydia and of the goodliest countries, which they took of him, and gave to king Eumenes:
1 Maccabees 9:57
Now when Bacchides saw that Alcimus was dead, he returned to the king: whereupon the land of Judea was in rest two years.
1 Maccabees 10:2
Now when king Demetrius heard thereof, he gathered together an exceeding great host, and went forth against him to fight.
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 10:15
Now when king Alexander had heard what promises Demetrius had sent unto Jonathan: when also it was told him of the battles and noble acts which he and his brethren had done, and of the pains that they had endured,
1 Maccabees 10:18
King Alexander to his brother Jonathan sendeth greeting:
1 Maccabees 10:25
He sent unto them therefore to this effect: King Demetrius unto the people of the Jews sendeth greeting:
1 Maccabees 10:37
And of them some shall be placed in the king's strong holds, of whom also some shall be set over the affairs of the kingdom, which are of trust: and I will that their overseers and governors be of themselves, and that they live after their own laws, even as the king hath commanded in the land of Judea.
1 Maccabees 10:43
And whosoever they be that flee unto the temple at Jerusalem, or be within the liberties hereof, being indebted unto the king, or for any other matter, let them be at liberty, and all that they have in my realm.
1 Maccabees 10:48
Then gathered king Alexander great forces, and camped over against Demetrius.
1 Maccabees 10:51
Afterward Alexander sent ambassadors to Ptolemee king of Egypt with a message to this effect:
1 Maccabees 10:55
Then Ptolemee the king gave answer, saying, Happy be the day wherein thou didst return into the land of thy fathers, and satest in the throne of their kingdom.
1 Maccabees 10:58
Where king Alexander meeting him, he gave unto him his daughter Cleopatra, and celebrated her marriage at Ptolemais with great glory, as the manner of kings is.
1 Maccabees 10:59
Now king Alexander had written unto Jonathan, that he should come and meet him.
1 Maccabees 10:61
At that time certain pestilent fellows of Israel, men of a wicked life, assembled themselves against him, to accuse him: but the king would not hear them.
1 Maccabees 10:62
Yea more than that, the king commanded to take off his garments, and clothe him in purple: and they did so.
1 Maccabees 10:65
So the king honoured him, and wrote him among his chief friends, and made him a duke, and partaker of his dominion.
1 Maccabees 10:68
Whereof when king Alexander heard tell, he was right sorry, and returned into Antioch.
1 Maccabees 10:88
Now when king Alexander heard these things, he honoured Jonathan yet more.
1 Maccabees 11:1
And the king of Egypt gathered together a great host, like the sand that lieth upon the sea shore, and many ships, and went about through deceit to get Alexander's kingdom, and join it to his own.
1 Maccabees 11:2
Whereupon he took his journey into Spain in peaceable manner, so as they of the cities opened unto him, and met him: for king Alexander had commanded them so to do, because he was his brother in law.
1 Maccabees 11:5
Also they told the king whatsoever Jonathan had done, to the intent he might blame him: but the king held his peace.
1 Maccabees 11:6
Then Jonathan met the king with great pomp at Joppa, where they saluted one another, and lodged.
1 Maccabees 11:7
Afterward Jonathan, when he had gone with the king to the river called Eleutherus, returned again to Jerusalem.
1 Maccabees 11:8
King Ptolemee therefore, having gotten the dominion of the cities by the sea unto Seleucia upon the sea coast, imagined wicked counsels against Alexander.
1 Maccabees 11:9
Whereupon he sent ambasadors unto king Demetrius, saying, Come, let us make a league betwixt us, and I will give thee my daughter whom Alexander hath, and thou shalt reign in thy father's kingdom:
1 Maccabees 11:14
In the mean season was king Alexander in Cilicia, because those that dwelt in those parts had revolted from him.
1 Maccabees 11:15
But when Alexander heard of this, he came to war against him: whereupon king Ptolemee brought forth his host, and met him with a mighty power, and put him to flight.
1 Maccabees 11:16
So Alexander fled into Arabia there to be defended; but king Ptolemee was exalted:
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 11:21
Then came ungodly persons, who hated their own people, went unto the king, and told him that Jonathan besieged the tower,
1 Maccabees 11:24
And took silver and gold, and raiment, and divers presents besides, and went to Ptolemais unto the king, where he found favour in his sight.
1 Maccabees 11:26
Yet the king entreated him as his predecessors had done before, and promoted him in the sight of all his friends,
1 Maccabees 11:28
Then Jonathan desired the king, that he would make Judea free from tribute, as also the three governments, with the country of Samaria; and he promised him three hundred talents.
1 Maccabees 11:29
So the king consented, and wrote letters unto Jonathan of all these things after this manner:
1 Maccabees 11:30
King Demetrius unto his brother Jonathan, and unto the nation of the Jews, sendeth greeting:
1 Maccabees 11:32
King Demetrius unto his father Lasthenes sendeth greeting:
1 Maccabees 11:34
Wherefore we have ratified unto them the borders of Judea, with the three governments of Apherema and Lydda and Ramathem, that are added unto Judea from the country of Samaria, and all things appertaining unto them, for all such as do sacrifice in Jerusalem, instead of the payments which the king received of them yearly aforetime out of the fruits of the earth and of trees.
1 Maccabees 11:38
After this, when king Demetrius saw that the land was quiet before him, and that no resistance was made against him, he sent away all his forces, every one to his own place, except certain bands of strangers, whom he had gathered from the isles of the heathen: wherefore all the forces of his fathers hated him.
1 Maccabees 11:41
In the mean time Jonathan sent unto king Demetrius, that he would cast those of the tower out of Jerusalem, and those also in the fortresses: for they fought against Israel.
1 Maccabees 11:44
Upon this Jonathan sent him three thousand strong men unto Antioch: and when they came to the king, the king was very glad of their coming.
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 11:46
Wherefore the king fled into the court, but they of the city kept the passages of the city, and began to fight.
1 Maccabees 11:47
Then the king called to the Jews for help, who came unto him all at once, and dispersing themselves through the city slew that day in the city to the number of an hundred thousand.
1 Maccabees 11:48
Also they set fire on the city, and gat many spoils that day, and delivered the king.
1 Maccabees 11:49
So when they of the city saw that the Jews had got the city as they would, their courage was abated: wherefore they made supplication to the king, and cried, saying,
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 11:52
So king Demetrius sat on the throne of his kingdom, and the land was quiet before him.
1 Maccabees 12:20
Areus king of the Lacedemonians to Onias the high priest, greeting:
1 Maccabees 12:39
Now Tryphon went about to get the kingdom of Asia, and to kill Antiochus the king, that he might set the crown upon his own head.
1 Maccabees 13:31
Now Tryphon dealt deceitfully with the young king Antiochus, and slew him.
1 Maccabees 13:32
And he reigned in his stead, and crowned himself king of Asia, and brought a great calamity upon the land.
1 Maccabees 13:34
Moreover Simon chose men, and sent to king Demetrius, to the end he should give the land an immunity, because all that Tryphon did was to spoil.
1 Maccabees 13:35
Unto whom king Demetrius answered and wrote after this manner:
1 Maccabees 13:36
King Demetrius unto Simon the high priest, and friend of kings, as also unto the elders and nation of the Jews, sendeth greeting:
1 Maccabees 14:1
Now in the hundred threescore and twelfth year king Demetrius gathered his forces together, and went into Media to get him help to fight against Tryphone.
1 Maccabees 14:2
But when Arsaces, the king of Persia and Media, heard that Demetrius was entered within his borders, he sent one of his princes to take him alive:
1 Maccabees 14:38
King Demetrius also confirmed him in the high priesthood according to those things,
1 Maccabees 15:1
Moreover Antiochus son of Demetrius the king sent letters from the isles of the sea unto Simon the priest and prince of the Jews, and to all the people;
1 Maccabees 15:2
The contents whereof were these: King Antiochus to Simon the high priest and prince of his nation, and to the people of the Jews, greeting:
1 Maccabees 15:8
And if anything be, or shall be, owing to the king, let it be forgiven thee from this time forth for evermore.
1 Maccabees 15:11
Wherefore being pursued by king Antiochus, he fled unto Dora, which lieth by the sea side:
1 Maccabees 15:16
Lucius, consul of the Romans unto king Ptolemee, greeting:
1 Maccabees 15:22
The same things wrote he likewise unto Demetrius the king, and Attalus, to Ariarathes, and Arsaces,
1 Maccabees 15:25
So Antiochus the king camped against Dora the second day, assaulting it continually, and making engines, by which means he shut up Tryphon, that he could neither go out nor in.
1 Maccabees 15:36
But returned in a rage to the king, and made report unto him of these speeches, and of the glory of Simon, and of all that he had seen: whereupon the king was exceeding wroth.
1 Maccabees 15:38
Then the king made Cendebeus captain of the sea coast, and gave him an host of footmen and horsemen,
1 Maccabees 15:39
And commanded him to remove his host toward Judea; also he commanded him to build up Cedron, and to fortify the gates, and to war against the people; but as for the king himself, he pursued Tryphon.
1 Maccabees 15:41
And when he had built up Cedrou, he set horsemen there, and an host of footmen, to the end that issuing out they might make outroads upon the ways of Judea, as the king had commanded him.
1 Maccabees 16:18
Then Ptolemee wrote these things, and sent to the king, that he should send him an host to aid him, and he would deliver him the country and cities.
2 Maccabees 1:10
In the hundred fourscore and eighth year, the people that were at Jerusalem and in Judea, and the council, and Judas, sent greeting and health unto Aristobulus, king Ptolemeus' master, who was of the stock of the anointed priests, and to the Jews that were in Egypt:
2 Maccabees 1:11
Insomuch as God hath delivered us from great perils, we thank him highly, as having been in battle against a king.
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 1:24
And the prayer was after this manner; O Lord, Lord God, Creator of all things, who art fearful and strong, and righteous, and merciful, and the only and gracious King,
2 Maccabees 1:33
So when this matter was known, it was told the king of Persia, that in the place, where the priests that were led away had hid the fire, there appeared water, and that Neemias had purified the sacrifices therewith.
2 Maccabees 1:34
Then the king, inclosing the place, made it holy, after he had tried the matter.
2 Maccabees 1:35
And the king took many gifts, and bestowed thereof on those whom he would gratify.
2 Maccabees 3:7
Now when Apollonius came to the king, and had shewed him of the money whereof he was told, the king chose out Heliodorus his treasurer, and sent him with a commandment to bring him the foresaid money.
2 Maccabees 3:32
So the high priest, suspecting lest the king should misconceive that some treachery had been done to Heliodorus by the Jews, offered a sacrifice for the health of the man.
2 Maccabees 3:35
So Heliodorus, after he had offered sacrifice unto the Lord, and made great vows unto him that had saved his life, and saluted Onias, returned with his host to the king.
2 Maccabees 3:37
And when the king Heliodorus, who might be a fit man to be sent yet once again to Jerusalem, he said,
2 Maccabees 4:5
He went to the king, not to be an accuser of his countrymen, but seeking the good of all, both publick and private:
2 Maccabees 4:6
For he saw that it was impossible that the state should continue quiet, and Simon leave his folly, unless the king did look thereunto.
2 Maccabees 4:8
Promising unto the king by intercession three hundred and threescore talents of silver, and of another revenue eighty talents:
2 Maccabees 4:10
Which when the king had granted, and he had gotten into his hand the rule he forthwith brought his own nation to Greekish fashion.
2 Maccabees 4:18
Now when the game that was used every faith year was kept at Tyrus, the king being present,
2 Maccabees 4:21
Now when Apollonius the son of Menestheus was sent into Egypt for the coronation of king Ptolemeus Philometor, Antiochus, understanding him not to be well affected to his affairs, provided for his own safety: whereupon he came to Joppa, and from thence to Jerusalem:
2 Maccabees 4:23
Three years afterward Jason sent Menelans, the aforesaid Simon's brother, to bear the money unto the king, and to put him in mind of certain necessary matters.
2 Maccabees 4:24
But he being brought to the presence of the king, when he had magnified him for the glorious appearance of his power, got the priesthood to himself, offering more than Jason by three hundred talents of silver.
2 Maccabees 4:27
So Menelans got the principality: but as for the money that he had promised unto the king, he took no good order for it, albeit Sostratis the ruler of the castle required it:
2 Maccabees 4:28
For unto him appertained the gathering of the customs. Wherefore they were both called before the king.
2 Maccabees 4:31
Then came the king in all haste to appease matters, leaving Andronicus, a man in authority, for his deputy.
2 Maccabees 4:36
And when the king was come again from the places about Cilicia, the Jews that were in the city, and certain of the Greeks that abhorred the fact also, complained because Onias was slain without cause.
2 Maccabees 4:44
Now when the king came to Tyrus, three men that were sent from the senate pleaded the cause before him:
2 Maccabees 4:45
But Menelans, being now convicted, promised Ptolemee the son of Dorymenes to give him much money, if he would pacify the king toward him.
2 Maccabees 4:46
Whereupon Ptolemee taking the king aside into a certain gallery, as it were to take the air, brought him to be of another mind:
2 Maccabees 5:8
In the end therefore he had an unhappy return, being accused before Aretas the king of the Arabians, fleeing from city to city, pursued of all men, hated as a forsaker of the laws, and being had in abomination as an open enemy of his country and countrymen, he was cast out into Egypt.
2 Maccabees 5:18
For had they not been formerly wrapped in many sins, this man, as soon as he had come, had forthwith been scourged, and put back from his presumption, as Heliodorus was, whom Seleucus the king sent to view the treasury.
2 Maccabees 6:1
Not long after this the king sent an old man of Athens to compel the Jews to depart from the laws of their fathers, and not to live after the laws of God:
2 Maccabees 6:21
But they that had the charge of that wicked feast, for the old acquaintance they had with the man, taking him aside, besought him to bring flesh of his own provision, such as was lawful for him to use, and make as if he did eat of the flesh taken from the sacrifice commanded by the king;
2 Maccabees 7:1
It came to pass also, that seven brethren with their mother were taken, and compelled by the king against the law to taste swine's flesh, and were tormented with scourges and whips.
2 Maccabees 7:3
Then the king, being in a rage, commanded pans and caldrons to be made hot:
2 Maccabees 7:9
And when he was at the last gasp, he said, Thou like a fury takest us out of this present life, but the King of the world shall raise us up, who have died for his laws, unto everlasting life.
2 Maccabees 7:12
Insomuch that the king, and they that were with him, marvelled at the young man's courage, for that he nothing regarded the pains.
2 Maccabees 7:16
Then looked he unto the king, and said, Thou hast power over men, thou art corruptible, thou doest what thou wilt; yet think not that our nation is forsaken of God;
2 Maccabees 7:25
But when the young man would in no case hearken unto him, the king called his mother, and exhorted her that she would counsel the young man to save his life.
2 Maccabees 8:10
So Nicanor undertook to make so much money of the captive Jews, as should defray the tribute of two thousand talents, which the king was to pay to the Romans.
2 Maccabees 9:19
Antiochus, king and governor, to the good Jews his citizens wisheth much joy, health, and prosperity:
2 Maccabees 9:25
Again, considering how that the princes that are borderers and neighbours unto my kingdom wait for opportunities, and expect what shall be the event. I have appointed my son Antiochus king, whom I often committed and commended unto many of you, when I went up into the high provinces; to whom I have written as followeth:
