The success of Judas and his brothers (1 Macc 5:63-5:64)

“The man Judas and his brothers were greatly honored in all Israel and among all the gentiles, wherever their name was heard. Men gathered to them and praised them.”

To emphasis further the importance of Judas and his brothers, this biblical author talks about how much honor was given to them. Even the gentiles honored them as all gathered to praise Judas and his brothers. Certainly Judas had killed a lot of people in his last escapades.
