Tilgath-pilneser

1 Chronicles 5:26

5:26 Tilgath-pilneser. Pul is the same king as Tilgath-pilneser, with the “and” connecting the two names in this verse being understood in the sense of “even.” Because of their later apostasy, the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half-Manasseh seem to have been the first of the ten northern tribes to be taken into the Assyrian captivity. This invasion is found depicted on a sculpture found in the Assyrian palace at Nimrud.
