Ever mindful to avoid rousing Assyrian suspicions of his intent to revolt, Hezekiah’s religious reforms and internal improvements set the stage for Judah to rebel against Sennacherib, leader of the Assyrians.Therefore, fully realizing Jerusalem’s plight, Hezekiah succumbed to Sennacherib yielding, “ I have done wrong.Withdraw from me, and I will pay whatever you demand of me.” Initially pleased with a subservient dispatch from Hezekiah, “Sennacherib exacted from Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.” This gesture of placation emptied the royal treasury, palace, and Temple of Jerusalem of their precious metals according to 2 Kings ; however, Sennacherib only desired more.With the ancient Hebrew text heavily obscured by lime and the difficulty on the part of the decipherer to discriminate between cracks in the rock and actual letters, the first attempt at translating the inscription proved fruitless.
