2 Kings 18:9-12

Thomson(i) 9 Now in the fourth year of Ezekias which was the seventh year of Osea son of Ela king of Israel, Salamanasser king of Assyria came up against Samaria and besieged it, 10 and took it at the end of three years. In the sixth year of Ezekias, which was the ninth of Osea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. 11 And the king of Assyria removed the Samaritans to Assyria, and placed them along the Alae and the Abor, a river of Gozan, and on the mountains of the Medes, 12 because they had not hearkened to the voice of the Lord their God, but transgressed his covenant; and, with regard to all that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded, had neither hearkened to them nor done them.
