II Maccabees was originally written in Greek and based on earlier work written by Jason of Cyrene.

A couple of blocks away from the Upper West Side home of radio’s king of raunch, Howard Stern, his Torah-scholar daughter sits in her ankle-length skirt and recites a blessing.

Emily Stern, 32, couldn’t have a life more different from her famous father’s.

She’s also single — and chalks that up to her pop’s habit of blabbing about graphic sex on the airwaves five days a week.

“It’s rare I go on dates [now],” Emily tells The Post.

And “my dad’s emphasis on sexuality [in his career] kept me out of the dating ring [when I was younger].” She was also scarred by her parents’ 1999 split — Howard divorced college sweetheart Alison Berns, the mother of Emily and her sisters, Ashley and Debra, after 21 years of marriage. He used to be one way, and then he marries a model.” (Howard, 61, married blond bombshell Beth Ostrosky, 18 years his junior, in 2008.) She muses that her mom’s re-entry into the working world might have been the straw that broke Howard’s back.

“I believed that my parents were very much in love,” Emily says, reflecting on her past. “Maybe he couldn’t handle it when she went back to work as a psychoanalyst.” Raised in tony Old Westbury, LI, the Stern daughters’ sheen as progeny of a celebrity belied a much more complicated adolescence.They could have been people migrating down from Asia down through Europe and settling in the Greek Isles, or they could have been seafaring people who settled along the coast.Whoever they were, the earliest inhabitants of mainland Greece (called Mycenaeans after excavations found at Mycenae) developed an advanced culture.The origins of Greece are shrouded in mystery and date back to the time of Abraham, 18th century BCE, or perhaps even earlier.Historians disagree as to where the Greeks came from.We know the details of the Jewish fight against the Greeks and Hellenism from the two Books of the Maccabees as well as the writings of the Jewish historian Josephus.
