2 Maccabees 9:12
Unable to put up with his own odor, he said, “It is fair to submit to God and for humans to stop thinking that they are God’s equals.”
And when he himself could not now abide his own stench, he spoke thus: It is just to be subject to God, and that a mortal man should not equal himself to God.
Then, when he could no longer endure his own stink, he said, It is right that all mortals should be subject to God and not think that they are his equal.
When he could no longer bear his own stench, he said, “It is right to be subject to God, and not to think one’s mortal self equal to God.”
And when he could not endure his own stench, he uttered these words, “It is right to be subject to God; mortals should not think that they are equal to God.”
And when he could not endure his own stench, he uttered these words, ‘It is right to be subject to God; mortals should not think that they are equal to God.’
And when he could not endure his own stench, he uttered these words, ‘It is right to be subject to God; mortals should not think that they are equal to God.’
And when he could not endure his own stench, he uttered these words, “It is right to be subject to God; mortals should not think that they are equal to God.”
And when he could not endure his own stench, he uttered these words: “It is right to be subject to God, and no mortal should think that he is equal to God.”
And when he could not endure his own stench, he uttered these words: “It is right to be subject to God, and no mortal should think that he is equal to God.”
And when he might not then suffer his (own) stink, thus he said, It is just for to be subject to God, and that a deadly (or a mortal) man feel not even things to God. [And when he might not now suffer his stink, thus he saith, It is just for to be subject to God, and a deadly creature not for to feel even things to God.]
