The Bible in Its Traditions

1 Maccabees 10:48–50


48  And so king Alexander gathered together a great army, and he moved his camp against Demetrius.

48  Then gathered king Alexander great forces, and camped over against Demetrius.

49  And the two kings joined together in battle, and the army of Demetrius fled away, and Alexander followed after him, and he closed in on them.

49  And after the two kings had joined battle, Demetrius’ host fled: but Alexander followed after him, and prevailed against them.

50  And the battle was hard fought, until the sun went down. And Demetrius was slain on that day.

50  And he continued the battle very sore until the sun went down: and that day was Demetrius slain.
