Bible: 2 Ki. 16:7-9
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. 16:9 The king of Assyria responded favorably to his request; 6 he 7 attacked Damascus and captured it. He deported the people 8 to Kir and executed Rezin.
