Isaiah Chapters 36 through 41

Click the icon for a PDF  file containing a scan of pages 287-288 of Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament, J. Pritchard, editor, Princeton University Pres, 1969.  It contains translations of inscriptions of the Assyrian king Sennacherib describing his siege of Jerusalem, his capture of the fenced cities of Judah, the deportation of the Judahites, and his boast that Hezekiah was left locked up in the city like a bird in a cage.  The boast, masking the failed siege of the city, is a good and early example of what we term today as political "spin".
