Sennacherib

King of Assyria, 705–681 B.C. Upon his accession, Hezekiah, king of Judah, tried to throw off the Assyrian yoke. Sennacherib accordingly invaded Judah and took some of the fenced cities (2 Kgs. 18:13; 2 Chr. 32:1; Isa. 36:1); sent messengers from Lachish, demanding Hezekiah’s subjection (2 Kgs. 18:17; 2 Chr. 32:9; Isa. 36:2); sent another letter (2 Kgs. 19:9; 2 Chr. 32:17; Isa. 37:9); his army was destroyed (2 Kgs. 19:35; 2 Chr. 32:21; Isa. 37:36); he was slain by his sons (2 Kgs. 19:37; 2 Chr. 32:21; Isa. 37:38). See Assyria and Babylonia.
