13But Heliodorus, because of the king's commandment given him, said, That in any wise it must be brought into the king's treasury. 14So at the day which he appointed he entered in to order this matter: wherefore there was no small agony throughout the whole city. 15But the priests, prostrating themselves before the altar in their priests' vestments, called unto heaven upon him that made a law concerning things given to he kept, that they should safely be preserved for such as had committed them to be kept. 16Then whoso had looked the high priest in the face, it would have wounded his heart: for his countenance and the changing of his colour declared the inward agony of his mind.17For the man was so compassed with fear and horror of the body, that it was manifest to them that looked upon him, what sorrow he had now in his heart. 18Others ran flocking out of their houses to the general supplication, because the place was like to come into contempt. 19And the women, girt with sackcloth under their breasts, abounded in the streets, and the virgins that were kept in ran, some to the gates, and some to the walls, and others looked out of the windows.
