King of Assyria

Sennacherib was king of Assyria from 705 to 681 B.C. He fought many wars against his neighbors, including Hezekiah, king of Judah.


  • (Hezekiah) himself, like a caged bird, I shut up in Jerusalem, his royal city.
    • From the Taylor prism[1]


  • The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold,
    And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold
