3 Maccabees 2:2-5 Common English Bible (CEB)

“Lord, Lord, king of the heavens and master of all creation, holy among the holy ones, only ruler, almighty: Pay attention to us. We are being crushed by an evil and impure man, caught up in his own arrogance and power. You are the creator of all things and the just master who rules over all. You judge those who act with violence and arrogance. You destroyed those who did evil in the past, even giants. The giants trusted in their bodily strength and boldness, but you destroyed them in a great flood. The people of Sodom acted arrogantly and were notorious for their wicked deeds.[a] You destroyed them with fire and sulfur, making them an example to others for all time.


  1. 3 Maccabees 2:5 Some manuscripts read secretive in their wicked deeds.
