31So when he was there, and called them of his nation together, and set the priests before the altar, he sent for them that were of the tower, 32And shewed them vile Nicanor's head, and the hand of that blasphemer, which with proud brags he had stretched out against the holy temple of the Almighty. 33And when he had cut out the tongue of that ungodly Nicanor, he commanded that they should give it by pieces unto the fowls, and hang up the reward of his madness before the temple. 34So every man praised toward the heaven the glorious Lord, saying, Blessed be he that hath kept his own place undefiled.35He hanged also Nicanor's head upon the tower, an evident and manifest sign unto all of the help of the Lord. 36And they ordained all with a common decree in no case to let that day pass without solemnity, but to celebrate the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which in the Syrian tongue is called Adar, the day before Mardocheus' day. 37Thus went it with Nicanor: and from that time forth the Hebrews had the city in their power. And here will I make an end.
