Tiglath-Pileser (Tukulti-Apal-Esharra) III, King of Assyria (744-727BC)

  • Died: 727 B.C.

   General Notes:

In 738 BC, in the reign of Menahem, king of Israel, Tiglath-Pileser III occupied Philistia and invaded Israel, imposing on it a heavy tribute (2 Kings 15:19). Ahaz, king of Judah, engaged in a war against Israel and Syria, appealed for help to this Assyrian king by means of a present of gold and silver (2 Kings 16:8); he accordingly "marched against Damascus, defeated and put Rezin to death, and besieged the city itself." Leaving part of his army to continue the siege, he advanced ravaging with fire and sword the province east of the Jordan, Philistia, and Samaria; and in 732 took Damascus, deporting its inhabitants to Assyria. In 729 he had himself crowned as "King Pul of Babylon".

Tiglath-Pileser III died in 727 BC, and was succeeded by Shalmaneser V.
