Isaiah 37:38


One day, 1  as he was worshiping 2  in the temple of his god Nisroch, 3  his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword. 4  They ran away to the land of Ararat; his son Esarhaddon replaced him as king.

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.
