18King Ptolemee also died the third day after, and they that were in the strong holds were slain one of another. 19By this means Demetrius reigned in the hundred threescore and seventh year. 20At 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. 21Then came ungodly persons, who hated their own people, went unto the king, and told him that Jonathan besieged the tower,22Whereof when he heard, he was angry, and immediately removing, he came to Ptolemais, and wrote unto Jonathan, that he should not lay siege to the tower, but come and speak with him at Ptolemais in great haste. 23Nevertheless Jonathan, when he heard this, commanded to besiege it still: and he chose certain of the elders of Israel and the priests, and put himself in peril; 24And took silver and gold, and raiment, and divers presents besides, and went to Ptolemais unto the king, where he found favour in his sight.
