But when the affair of this murder came to be told at Jerusalem,
it put the multitude into disorder, and they left the feast; and without
any generals to conduct them, they marched with great violence to Samaria;
nor would they be ruled by any of the magistrates that were set over them,
but they were managed by one Eleazar, the son of Dineus, and by Alexander,
in these their thievish and seditious attempts. These men fell upon those
that were ill the neighborhood of the Acrabatene toparchy, and slew them,
without sparing any age, and set the villages on fire.
