In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglathpileser
king of Assyria
Into the land of Israel; he is called by a Jewish chronologer
F3, Pul-Asir; so Phul-Assar by
Metasthenes F4, who says he reigned twenty five
years; he very probably was the son of Pul the Assyrian king,
mentioned ( 2 Kings
15:19 ) , and is thought to be the same that Aelianus
F5 calls Tilgamos; some think he had
the first part of his name from Diglath, or Diglito, by which the
river Tigris is called in Pliny F6, with which Assyria was
washed; and that Pil, or Pul, is Baal, Bel, Jupiter, and Azar is
Mars F7; of all which his name is composed:
and took Ijon, and Abelbethmaachah;
of which see ( 1 Kings
15:20 ) ,
a city in the tribe of Ephraim, ( Joshua 16:6 )
a country beyond Jordan, which belonged to the Reubenites,
Gadites, and half tribe of Manasseh:
and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali;
that is, upper Galilee, which lay in Naphtali:
and carried them captive to Assyria;
which was the first captivity of Israel in which half their
tribes were carried away.
