1 Maccabees 5:25 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

25 There they met some Nabateans,[a] who received them peaceably and told them all that had happened to their kindred in Gilead:


  1. 5:25 Nabateans: an Arab people who acquired wealth and power as caravan merchants in the final two centuries B.C. They established Petra as their capital and for a time controlled all of Transjordan, even as far as Damascus. It was from a Nabatean governor of Damascus that Paul escaped (2 Cor 11:32–33).
