2 Kings 16:7-9

Leeser(i) 7 And Achaz then sent messengers to Tiglath-pilesser the king of Assyria, saying, Thy servant and thy son am I: come up, and help me out of the hand of the king of Syria, and out of the hand of the king of Israel, who rise up against me. 8 And Achaz took the silver and the gold that were found in the house of the Lord, and in the treasures of the king’s house, and sent the same to the king of Assyria as a bribe. 9 And the king of Assyria hearkened unto him; and the king of Assyria went up against Damascus, and captured it, and led the people of it away captive to Kir, and Rezin did he put to death.
