16So at the commandment of the captain they removed straightways from thence, and came near unto them at the town of Dessau. 17Now Simon, Judas' brother, had joined battle with Nicanor, but was somewhat discomfited through the sudden silence of his enemies. 18Nevertheless Nicanor, hearing of the manliness of them that were with Judas, and the courageousness that they had to fight for their country, durst not try the matter by the sword. 19Wherefore he sent Posidonius, and Theodotus, and Mattathias, to make peace.20So when they had taken long advisement thereupon, and the captain had made the multitude acquainted therewith, and it appeared that they were all of one mind, they consented to the covenants, 21And appointed a day to meet in together by themselves: and when the day came, and stools were set for either of them, 22Ludas placed armed men ready in convenient places, lest some treachery should be suddenly practised by the enemies: so they made a peaceable conference.
