41Wherefore 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. 42Then Judas and his host drew near, and entered into battle, and there were slain of the king's army six hundred men. 43Eleazar 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, 44Put himself in jeopardy, to the end he might deliver his people, and get him a perpetual name:45Wherefore 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. 46Which done, he crept under the elephant, and thrust him under, and slew him: whereupon the elephant fell down upon him, and there he died. 47Howbeit the rest of the Jews seeing the strength of the king, and the violence of his forces, turned away from them.
