8And as they were at Jerusalem, there appeared before them on horseback one in white clothing, shaking his armour of gold. 9Then they praised the merciful God all together, and took heart, insomuch that they were ready not only to fight with men, but with most cruel beasts, and to pierce through walls of iron. 10Thus they marched forward in their armour, having an helper from heaven: for the Lord was merciful unto them 11And giving a charge upon their enemies like lions, they slew eleven thousand footmen, and sixteen hundred horsemen, and put all the other to flight.12Many of them also being wounded escaped naked; and Lysias himself fled away shamefully, and so escaped. 13Who, as he was a man of understanding, casting with himself what loss he had had, and considering that the Hebrews could not be overcome, because the Almighty God helped them, he sent unto them, 14And persuaded them to agree to all reasonable conditions, and promised that he would persuade the king that he must needs be a friend unto them.
