Invasion of Judah

13 (A)Now in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and seized them. 14 Then Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria at Lachish, saying, “(B)I have done wrong. [a]Withdraw from me; whatever you [b]impose on me I will bear.” So the king of Assyria [c]required of Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold. 15 (C)Hezekiah gave him all the silver which was found in the house of the Lord, and in the treasuries of the king’s house. 16 At that time Hezekiah cut off the gold from the doors of the temple of the Lord, and from the doorposts which Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid, and gave it to the king of Assyria.
