2 Kings 17:3-5

3 g  Against him came up h  Shalmaneser king of Assyria. And Hoshea became his vassal and paid him tribute. 4But the king of Assyria found treachery in Hoshea, for he had sent messengers to So, king of Egypt, and offered no tribute to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year. Therefore the king of Assyria shut him up and bound him in prison. 5Then the king of Assyria invaded all the land and came to Samaria, and for three years he besieged it.

2 Kings 18:9-15

9In the fourth year of King Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah, king of Israel, i  Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria and besieged it, 10and at the end of three years he took it. In the sixth year of Hezekiah, which was the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. 11The king of Assyria carried the Israelites away to Assyria and put them in j  Halah, and on the k  Habor, l  the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes, 12because they did not obey the voice of the  Lord their God but transgressed his covenant, even all that Moses the servant of the  Lord commanded. They neither listened nor obeyed.

35And that night u  the angel of the  Lord went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. And when people arose early in the morning, behold, these were all dead bodies.

Judgment on Arrogant Assyria

5 Ah, Assyria, x  the rod of my anger;
the staff in their hands is my fury!
6Against a y  godless nation I send him,
and against the people of my wrath I command him,
to take z  spoil and seize plunder,
and to aa  tread them down like the mire of the streets.
7But he ab  does not so intend,
and his heart does not so think;
but it is in his heart to destroy,
and to cut off nations not a few;
8for he says:
ac  “Are not my commanders all kings?
9 ad  Is not ae  Calno like af  Carchemish?
Is not ag  Hamath like ah  Arpad?
ai  Is not aj  Samaria like Damascus?
10As my hand has reached to ak  the kingdoms of the idols,
whose carved images were greater than those of Jerusalem and Samaria,
11shall I not do to Jerusalem and al  her idols
am  as I have done to Samaria and her images?”

12 an  When the Lord has finished all his work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem ao  he
Hebrew I
will punish the speech of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria and the boastful look in his eyes.
