Arrival of Heliodorus in Jerusalem
- "While the holy city was inhabited in unbroken peace and the laws were very well observed because of the piety of the high priest Oni'as and his hatred of wickedness, "
- "it came about that the kings themselves honored the place and glorified the temple with the finest presents, "
- "so that even Seleu'cus, the king of Asia, defrayed from his own revenues all the expenses connected with the service of the sacrifices. "
