1 Maccabees 1:25

25 Israel mourned deeply in every community,

1 Maccabees 1:25 In-Context

23 He took the silver and the gold, and the costly vessels; he took also the hidden treasures that he found.
24 Taking them all, he went into his own land. He shed much blood, and spoke with great arrogance.
25 Israel mourned deeply in every community,
26 rulers and elders groaned, young women and young men became faint, the beauty of the women faded.
27 Every bridegroom took up the lament; she who sat in the bridal chamber was mourning.
