The attack from Assyria (2 Chr 28:20-28:21)

“King Tiglath-pileser of Assyria came against King Ahaz. He oppressed him instead of strengthening him. King Ahaz plundered the house of the Yahweh and the houses of the king and of the offices. He gave tribute to the king of Assyria. However, it did not help him.”

This is loosely based on 2 Kings, chapter 16, but more succinct. Here King Ahaz is much worse. King Tiglath-pileser III, instead of helping King Ahaz, oppressed him. King Ahaz wanted to please the king of Assyria. It is not clear from the text how this pleased him. However, he took stuff from the Temple, the palace, and the officials to give tribute, but to no avail.
