2 Maccabees 4:5-7 Common English Bible (CEB)

Onias went to the king not to accuse his fellow citizens but to safeguard the public and private welfare of the people. He recognized that without royal attention public affairs would not return to a peaceful state, and Simon would not cease from his madness.

Jason as high priest

After Seleucus died and Antiochus (who was called Epiphanes) received the kingdom, Jason the brother of Onias gained the high priesthood by corruption.
