2 Kings 16:7-8

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.

1 tn Heb “son.” Both terms (“servant” and “son”) reflect Ahaz’s subordinate position as Tiglath-pileser’s subject.

2 tn Heb “hand, palm.”

3 tn Heb “who have arisen against.”

4 tn Heb “that was found.”

5 tn Or “bribe money.”
