2 Kings 19:37Context
19:37 One day, 1 as he was worshiping in the temple of his god Nisroch, 2 his sons 3 Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword. 4 They escaped to the land of Ararat; his son Esarhaddon replaced him as king.
1 sn The assassination probably took place in 681
2 sn No such Mesopotamian god is presently known. Perhaps the name is a corruption of Nusku.
4 sn Extra-biblical sources also mention the assassination of Sennacherib, though they refer to only one assassin. See M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 239-40.
