invasion of the kingdom of Judah
(2 Kings 15:37; 16:5-9; Isaiah 7:1-8) Ahaz
induced Tiglath-pileser III. to attack Damascus, and this caused
Rezin to withdraw for the purpose of defending his own kingdom.
Damascus was taken, and Rezin was slain in battle by the Assyrian
king, and his people carried into captivity, B.C. 732
(2 Kings 16:9)
