1 in illis diebus surrexit Matthathias filius Iohannis filii Simeonis sacerdos ex filiis Ioarim ab Hierusalem et consedit in monte Modin

In those days arose Mathathias, the son of John, the son of Simeon, a priest of the sons of Joarib, from Jerusalem, and he abode in the mountain of Modin:

2 et habebat filios quinque Iohannan qui cognominabatur Gaddis

And he had five sons: John, who was surnamed Gaddis:

3 et Simeon qui cognominabatur Thasi

7 et dixit Matthathias vae mihi ut quid natus sum videre contritionem populi mei et contritionem civitatis sanctae et sedere illic cum datur in manibus inimicorum

And Mathathias said: Woe is me, wherefore was I born to see the ruin of my people, and the ruin of the holy city, and to dwell there, when it is given into the hands of the enemies?

8 sancta in manu extraneorum facta sunt templum eius sicut homo ignobilis

The holy places are come into the hands of strangers her temple is become as a man without honour.

9 vasa gloriae eius captiva abducta sunt trucidati sunt iuvenes eius in plateis et iuvenes eius ceciderunt gladio inimicorum

The vessels of her glory are carried away captive; her old men are murdered in the streets, and her young men are fallen by the sword of the enemies.

10 quae gens non hereditavit regnum eius et non obtinuit spolia eius

What nation hath not inherited her kingdom, and gotten of her spoils?

11 omnis conpositio eius ablata est quae erat libera facta est ancilla

All her ornaments are taken away. She that was free is made a slave.

12 et ecce sancta nostra et pulchritudo nostra et claritas nostra desolata est et coinquinaverunt eam gentes

And behold our sanctuary, and our beauty, and our glory is laid waste, and the Gentiles have defiled them.

13 quo ergo nobis adhuc vivere

To what end then should we live any longer?

14 et scidit Matthathias et filii eius vestimenta sua et operuerunt se ciliciis et planxerunt valde

And Mathathias and his sons rent their garments, and they covered themselves with haircloth, and made great lamentation.

15 et venerunt illuc qui missi erant a rege Antiocho ut cogerent eos qui confugerant in civitate Modin immolare et accendere et a lege Dei discedere

And they that were sent from king Antiochus, came thither, to compel them that were fled into the city of Modin, to sacrifice, and to burn incense, and to depart from the law of God.

16 et multi de populo Israhel consentientes accesserunt ad eos sed Matthathias et filii eius constanter steterunt

And many of the people of Israel consented and came to them: but Mathathias and his sons stood firm.

17 et respondentes qui missi erant ab Antiocho dixerunt Matthathiae princeps et clarissimus et magnus es in hac civitate et ornatus filiis et fratribus

And they that were sent from Antiochus, answering, said to Mathathias: Thou art a ruler, and an honourable, and great man in this city, and adorned with sons, and brethren.

18 ergo accede prior et fac iussum regis sicut fecerunt omnes gentes et viri Iuda et qui remanserunt in Hierusalem et eris tu et filii tui inter amicos regis et amplificatus argento et auro et muneribus multis

Therefore, come thou first, and obey the king's commandment, as all nations have done, and the men of Juda, and they that remain in Jerusalem: and thou, and thy sons shall be in the number of the king's friends, and enriched with gold, and silver, and many presents.

19 et respondit Matthathias et dixit magna voce et si omnes gentes regi Antiocho oboediunt ut discedat unusquisque a servitute patrum suorum et consentiunt mandatis eius

Then Mathathias answered, and said with a loud voice: Although all nations obey king Antiochus, so as to depart every man from the service of the law of his fathers, and consent to his commandments:

20 ego et filii mei et fratres mei oboediemus legi patrum nostrorum

I and my sons, and my brethren will obey the law of our fathers.

21 propitius sit nobis Deus non est nobis utile relinquere legem et iustitias Dei

God be merciful unto us: it is not profitable for us to forsake the law, and the justices of God:

22 non audibimus verba regis Antiochi nec sacrificabimus transgredientes legis nostrae mandata ut eamus altera via

We will not hearken to the words of king Antiochus, neither will we sacrifice and transgress the commandments of our law, to go another way.

23 et ut cessavit loqui verba haec accessit quidam Iudaeus in omnium oculis sacrificare idolis super aram in civitate Modin secundum iussum regis

Now as he left off speaking these words, there came a certain Jew in the sight of all to sacrifice to the idols upon the altar in the city of Modin, according to the king's commandment.

24 et vidit Matthathias et doluit et contremuerunt renes eius et ascendit furor eius secundum iudicium legis et insiliens trucidavit eum super aram

And Mathathias saw, and was grieved, and his reins trembled, and his wrath was kindled according to the judgment of the law, and running upon him he slew him upon the altar:

25 sed et virum quem miserat rex Antiochus qui cogebat immolari occidit in ipso tempore et aram destruxit

Moreover the man whom king Antiochus had sent, who compelled them to sacrifice, he slew at the same time, and pulled down the altar,

26 et zelatus est legem sicut fecit Finees Zambri filio Salomi

And shewed zeal for the law, as Phinees did by Zamri, the son of Salomi.

27 et exclamavit Matthathias voce magna dicens omnis qui zelum habet legis statuens testamentum exeat post me

And Mathathias cried out in the city with a loud voice, saying: Every one that hath zeal for the law, and maintaineth the testament, let him follow me.

28 et fugit ipse et filii eius in montes et reliquerunt quaecumque habebant in civitate

So he and his sons fled into the mountains, and left all that they had in the city.

29 tunc descenderunt multi quaerentes iudicium et iustitiam in desertum

Then many that sought after judgment, and justice, went down into the desert

30 ut sederent ibi ipsi et filii eorum et mulieres eorum et pecora eorum quoniam induraverunt super eos mala

And they abode there, they and their children, and their wives, and their cattle: because afflictions increased upon them.

31 et renuntiatum est viris regis et exercitui qui erat in Hierusalem civitate David quoniam discessissent viri quidam qui dissipaverunt mandatum regis in loca occulta in deserto et abissent post illos multi

And it was told to the king's men, and to the army that was in Jerusalem, in the city of David, that certain men, who had broken the king's commandment, were gone away into the secret places in the wilderness, and that many were gone after them.

32 et statim perrexerunt ad eos et constituerunt adversus eos proelium in die sabbatorum

And forthwith they went out towards them, and made war against them on the sabbath day.

33 et dixerunt ad eos resistitis et nunc adhuc exite et facite secundum verbum regis et vivetis

And they said to them: Do you still resist? come forth, and do according to the edict of king Antiochus, and you shall live.

34 et dixerunt non exibimus neque faciemus verbum regis ut polluamus diem sabbatorum

And they said: We will not come forth, neither will we obey the king's edict, to profane the sabbath day.

35 et concitaverunt adversus eos proelium

And they made haste to give them battle.

36 et non responderunt eis nec oppilaverunt loca occulta

But they answered them not, neither did they cast a stone at them, nor stopped up the secret places,

37 dicentes moriamur omnes in simplicitate nostra et testes erunt super nos caelum et terra quod iniuste perditis nos

Saying: Let us all die in our innocency: and heaven and earth shall be witnesses for us, that you put us to death wrongfully.

38 et intulerunt eis bellum sabbatis et mortui sunt ipsi et uxores eorum et filii eorum et pecora eorum usque ad mille animas hominum

So they gave them battle on the sabbath: and they were slain, with their wives, and their children, and their cattle, to the number of a thousand persons.

39 et cognovit Matthathias et amici eius et luctum habuerunt super eos valde

And Mathathias and his friends heard of it, and they mourned for them exceedingly.

40 et dixit vir proximo suo si omnes fecerimus sicut fratres nostri fecerunt et non pugnaverimus adversus gentes pro animabus nostris et iustificationibus nostris citius disperdent nos a terra

And every man said to his neighbour: If we shall all do as our brethren have done, and not fight against the heathens for our lives, and our justifications, they will now quickly root us out of the earth.

41 et cogitaverunt in illa die dicentes omnis homo quicumque venerit ad nos in bello die sabbatorum pugnemus adversus eum et non moriemur omnes sicut mortui sunt fratres nostri in occultis

And they determined in that day, saying: Whosoever shall come up against us to fight on the sabbath day, we will fight against him: and we will not all die, as our brethren that were slain in the secret places.

42 tunc congregata est ad eos synagoga Asideorum fortis viribus ex Israhel omnis voluntarius in lege

Then was assembled to them the congregation of the Assideans, the stoutest of Israel, every one that had a good will for the law.

43 et omnes qui fugiebant a malis additi sunt ad eos et facti sunt illis ad firmamentum

And all they that fled from the evils, joined themselves to them, and were a support to them.

44 et collegerunt exercitum et percusserunt peccatores in ira sua et viros iniquos in indignatione sua et ceteri fugerunt ad nationes ut evaderent

And they gathered an army, and slew the sinners in their wrath, and the wicked men in their indignation: and the rest fled to the nations for safety.

45 et circuivit Matthathias et amici eius et destruxerunt aras

And Mathathias and his friends went round about, and they threw down the altars:

46 et circumciderunt pueros incircumcisos quotquot invenerunt in finibus Israhel in fortitudine

And they circumcised all the children whom they found in the confines of Israel that were uncircumcised: and they did valiantly.

47 et persecuti sunt filios superbiae et prosperatum est opus in manu eorum

And they pursued after the children of pride, and the work prospered in their hands:

48 et obtinuerunt legem de manibus gentium et de manibus regum et non dederunt cornu peccatori

And they recovered the law out of the hands of the nations, and out of the hands of the kings: and they yielded not the horn to the sinner.

49 et adpropinquaverunt dies Matthathiae moriendi et dixit filiis suis nunc confortata est superbia et castigatio et tempus eversionis et ira indignationis

Now the days drew near that Mathathias should die, and he said to his sons: Now hath pride and chastisement gotten strength, and the time of destruction, and the wrath of indignation:

50 nunc ergo o filii aemulatores estote legis et date animas vestras pro testamento patrum

Now, therefore, O my sons, be ye zealous for the law, and give your lives for the covenant of your fathers.

51 et mementote operum patrum quae fecerunt in generationibus suis et accipietis gloriam magnam et nomen aeternum
