King James Version (KJV)

King James Bible KJV


"An Assyrian king (Hos. 10:14), identified with Shalmaneser II." "(Sayce) or IV. (Lenormant), the successor of Pul on the throne" "of Assyria (B.C. 728). He made war against Hoshea, the king of" "Israel, whom he subdued and compelled to pay an annual tribute." "Hoshea, however, soon after rebelled against his Assyrian" "conquerer. Shalmaneser again marched against Samaria, which," "after a siege of three years, was taken (2 Kings 17:3-5; 18:9)" by Sargon (q.v.). A revolution meantime had broken out in "Assyria, and Shalmaneser was deposed. Sargon usurped the vacant" throne. Schrader thinks that this is probably the name of a king of Moab mentioned on an inscription of Tiglath-pileser as Salamanu.
