1 Maccabees 12:19-23Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
19 And this is the copy of the letter which he had sent to Onias:
20 Arius king of the Spartans to Onias the high priest, greeting.
21 It is found in writing concerning the Spartans, and the Jews, that they are brethren, and that they are of the stock of Abraham.
22 And now since this is come to our knowledge, you do well to write to us of your prosperity.
23 And we also have written back to you: That our cattle, and our possessions are yours: and yours, ours. We therefore have commanded that these things should be told you.
