21Maccabeus seeing the coming of the multitude, and the divers preparations of armour, and the fierceness of the beasts, stretched out his hands toward heaven, and called upon the Lord that worketh wonders, knowing that victory cometh not by arms, but even as it seemeth good to him, he giveth it to such as are worthy: 22Therefore in his prayer he said after this manner; O Lord, thou didst send thine angel in the time of Ezekias king of Judea, and didst slay in the host of Sennacherib an hundred fourscore and five thousand: 23Wherefore now also, O Lord of heaven, send a good angel before us for a fear and dread unto them; 24And through the might of thine arm let those be stricken with terror, that come against thy holy people to blaspheme. And he ended thus.25Then Nicanor and they that were with him came forward with trumpets and songs. 26But Judas and his company encountered the enemies with invocation and prayer. 27So that fighting with their hands, and praying unto God with their hearts, they slew no less than thirty and five thousand men: for through the appearance of God they were greatly cheered.
