2 Kings 15:29

In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglathpileser king
of Assyria
Into the land of Israel; he is called by a Jewish chronologer F3, Pul-Asir; so Phul-Assar by Metasthenes F4, who says he reigned twenty five years; he very probably was the son of Pul the Assyrian king, mentioned (2 Kings 15:19) , and is thought to be the same that Aelianus F5 calls Tilgamos; some think he had the first part of his name from Diglath, or Diglito, by which the river Tigris is called in Pliny F6, with which Assyria was washed; and that Pil, or Pul, is Baal, Bel, Jupiter, and Azar is Mars F7; of all which his name is composed:

and took Ijon, and Abelbethmaachah;
of which see (1 Kings 15:20) ,

and Janoah;
a city in the tribe of Ephraim, (Joshua 16:6)

and Kedesh, and Hazor;
cities in Naphtali: (Joshua 19:36,37)

and Gilead;
a country beyond Jordan, which belonged to the Reubenites, Gadites, and half tribe of Manasseh:

and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali;
that is, upper Galilee, which lay in Naphtali:

and carried them captive to Assyria;
which was the first captivity of Israel in which half their tribes were carried away.
