1Now when the holy city was inhabited with all peace, and the laws were kept very well, because of the godliness of Onias the high priest, and his hatred of wickedness, 2It came to pass that even the kings themselves did honour the place, and magnify the temple with their best gifts; 3Insomuch that Seleucus of Asia of his own revenues bare all the costs belonging to the service of the sacrifices. 4But one Simon of the tribe of Benjamin, who was made governor of the temple, fell out with the high priest about disorder in the city.5And when he could not overcome Onias, he gat him to Apollonius the son of Thraseas, who then was governor of Celosyria and Phenice, 6And told him that the treasury in Jerusalem was full of infinite sums of money, so that the multitude of their riches, which did not pertain to the account of the sacrifices, was innumerable, and that it was possible to bring all into the king's hand. 7Now when Apollonius came to the king, and had shewed him of the money whereof he was told, the king chose out Heliodorus his treasurer, and sent him with a commandment to bring him the foresaid money.
