2 Kings 16:7-9

Context
16:7 Ahaz sent messengers to King Tiglath-pileser of Assyria, saying, “I am your servant and your dependent. 1  March up and rescue me from the power 2  of the king of Syria and the king of Israel, who have attacked 3  me.” 16:8 Then Ahaz took the silver and gold that were 4  in the Lord’s temple and in the treasuries of the royal palace and sent it as tribute 5  to the king of Assyria. 16:9 The king of Assyria responded favorably to his request; 6  he 7  attacked Damascus and captured it. He deported the people 8  to Kir and executed Rezin.
