Bible Commentary for Tobit 1:18

Discussion for Tobit 1:18

  • John Halpin on Tobit 1:18
    Why did Sennacherib so vehemently oppose burying the Jews he had slain? He even looked for the bodies and became terribly angry with Tobit for burying them. Seems a huge waste of time for a king to do this.
