Then the angel1 of the LORD went out and put to death2 a hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian3 camp. When the people got up the next morning--there were all the dead bodies!
So Sennacherib4 king of Assyria broke camp and withdrew. He returned to Nineveh5 and stayed there.
One day, while he was worshiping in the temple6 of his god Nisroch, his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer cut him down with the sword, and they escaped to the land of Ararat.7 And Esarhaddon8 his son succeeded him as king.9
