2 Kings 18:13

Context
Sennacherib Invades Judah

18:13 In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah’s reign, King Sennacherib of Assyria marched up against all the fortified cities of Judah and captured them.

2 Kings 19:37

Context
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 b.c.

2 sn No such Mesopotamian god is presently known. Perhaps the name is a corruption of Nusku.

3 tc Although “his sons” is absent in the Kethib, it is supported by the Qere, along with many medieval Hebrew mss and the ancient versions. Cf. Isa 37:38.

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.
