1 Maccabees 11:14-19Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
14 Now king Alexander was in Cilicia at that time: because they that were in those places had rebelled.
15 And when Alexander heard of it, he came to give him battle, and king Ptolemee brought forth his army, and met him with a strong power, and put him to flight.
16 And Alexander fled into Arabia, there to be protected: and king Ptolemee was exalted.
17 And Zabdiel the Arabian took off Alexander's head, and sent it to Ptolemee.
18 And king Ptolemee died the third day after: and they that were in the strong holds were destroyed by them that were within the camp.
19 And Demetrius reigned in the hundred and sixty-seventh year.
