2 Kings 18:13-16
Sennacherib Attacks Judah13 aIn the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and took them. 14And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria at Lachish, saying, “I have done wrong; withdraw from me. Whatever you impose on me I will bear.” bAnd the king of Assyria required of Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents ▼
▼A talent was about 75 pounds or 34 kilogramsof silver and thirty talents of gold. 15And Hezekiah dgave him all the silver that was found in the house of the Lord and in the treasuries of the king’s house. 16At that time Hezekiah stripped the gold from the doors of the temple of the Lord and from the doorposts that Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid and gave it to the king of Assyria.
