Praying FOR the Dead. (Not TO the dead.)

2 Maccabees 12:43-45      AND WHEN HE HAD MADE A GATHERING THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY TO THE SUM OF TWO THOUSAND DRACHMAS OF SILVER, HE SENT IT TO JERUSALEM TO OFFER A SIN OFFERING, DOING THEREIN VERY WELL AND HONESTLY, IN THAT HE WAS MINDFUL OF THE RESURRECTION:
    FOR IF HE HAD NOT HOPED THAT THEY THAT WERE SLAIN SHOULD HAVE RISEN AGAIN, IT HAD BEEN SUPERFLUOUS AND VAIN TO PRAY FOR THE DEAD.
    AND ALSO IN THAT HE PERCEIVED THAT THERE WAS GREAT FAVOUR LAID UP FOR THOSE THAT DIED GODLY, IT WAS A HOLY AND GOOD THOUGHT. THEREFORE HE MADE A RECONCILIATION FOR THE DEAD, THAT THEY MIGHT BE DELIVERED FROM SIN.
