God Destroys the Assyrian Army(A)

35 That very night, the angel of the Lord went out to the camp of the Assyrian army and killed 185,000 men. Early the next morning, when the army of Israel[a] arose, all 185,000 soldiers[b] were dead. 36 As a result, King Sennacherib of Assyria left and returned to Nineveh where he lived. 37 Later on, as he was worshiping in the temple of his god Nisroch, Adrammelech[c] and Sharezer killed him with a sword and fled into the territory of Ararat. Then Sennacherib’s[d] son Esarhaddon became king in his place.
