The King James Version Bible

1 Maccabees 1:3-5

  1. And went through to the ends of the earth, and took spoils of many nations, insomuch that the earth was quiet before him; whereupon he was exalted and his heart was lifted up.

  2. And he gathered a mighty strong host and ruled over countries, and nations, and kings, who became tributaries unto him.

  3. And after these things he fell sick, and perceived that he should die.
