2 Maccabees 4:34
So Menelaus took Andronicus aside and urged him to do away with Onias. Andronicus came to Onias and persuaded him by deception, extending his strong hand with solemn pledges, to come out of safety despite his fear. Then with no regard for justice, he did away with him on the spot.
Whereupon Menelaus coming to Andronicus, desired him to kill Onias. And he went to Onias, and gave him his right hand with an oath, and (though he were suspected by him) persuaded him to come forth out of the sanctuary, and immediately slew him, without any regard to justice.
Then Menelaus secretly persuaded Andronicus to kill Onias. So Andronicus went to Onias and deceived him with a friendly greeting and with promises of safety. Although Onias was suspicious, Andronicus finally lured him away from the safety of the temple and immediately murdered him in cold blood.
Thereupon Menelaus approached Andronicus privately and urged him to seize Onias. So Andronicus went to Onias, treacherously reassuring him by offering his right hand in oath, and persuaded him, in spite of his suspicions, to leave the sanctuary. Then, with no regard for justice, he immediately put him to death.
Therefore Menelaus, taking Andronicus aside, urged him to kill Onias. Andronicus came to Onias, and resorting to treachery, offered him sworn pledges and gave him his right hand; he persuaded him, though still suspicious, to come out from the place of sanctuary; then, with no regard for justice, he immediately put him out of the way.

Wherefore Menelaus went to Andronicus, and prayed that he would slay Onias. And when he came to Onias, and had given right hands with an oath, though he was suspect to him, he counselled him for to go forth (out) of asylum (or out of the place of refuge), and anon (or at once) he slew him, and dreaded not rightwiseness (or and had no fear of reckoning or of retribution). [Whereof Menelaus going to Andronicus, prayed that he slay Onias. Which when he came to Onias, and right hands given with oath, though he was suspect to him, counselled him for to go forth of asylum, anon slew him, not dreading rightwiseness.]
