29But when the battle waxed strong, there appeared unto the enemies from heaven five comely men upon horses, with bridles of gold, and two of them led the Jews, 30And took Maccabeus betwixt them, and covered him on every side weapons, and kept him safe, but shot arrows and lightnings against the enemies: so that being confounded with blindness, and full of trouble, they were killed. 31And there were slain of footmen twenty thousand and five hundred, and six hundred horsemen. 32As for Timotheus himself, he fled into a very strong hold, called Gawra, where Chereas was governor.33But they that were with Maccabeus laid siege against the fortress courageously four days. 34And they that were within, trusting to the strength of the place, blasphemed exceedingly, and uttered wicked words. 35Nevertheless upon the fifth day early twenty young men of Maccabeus' company, inflamed with anger because of the blasphemies, assaulted the wall manly, and with a fierce courage killed all that they met withal.
