2 Maccabees 13:8
This was completely just, since he had committed many sins against the altar whose fire and ashes were holy, so in ashes he died.
And indeed very justly, for insomuch as he had committed many sins against the altar of God, the fire and ashes of which were holy: he was condemned to die in ashes.
and that was just what he deserved. He had often profaned the sacred ashes of the altar fire in the Temple, and now he met his death in ashes.
It was altogether just that he who had committed so many sins against the altar with its pure fire and ashes, in ashes should meet his death.
