2 Kings 15:19-20

19 1Pula the king of Assyria came against the land, and Menahem gave 2Pul a thousand talentsb of silver, that he might help him 3to confirm his hold on the royal power.
20 Menahem exacted the money from Israel, that is, from all the wealthy men, fifty shekelsc of silver from every man, to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria turned back and did not stay there in the land.
