NET © Notes

sn The assassination of King Sennacherib probably took place in 681 b.c.

tn The verb that introduces this verse serves as a discourse particle and is untranslated; see note on “in the future” in 2:2.

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

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.
