Sennacherib's Prism Taylor's Prism
Sennacherib's Prism - Also known as Taylors Prism The cuneiform text on this clay prism documents the spread of the Assyrian Empire.
 
History
Sennacherib was the King of Assyria and the son of Sargon II. Austin Henry Layard discovered his palace in 1847 in the city of Nineveh the Assyrian capital. Inscribed in cuneiform on the colossal sculptures in the doorway of his throne room was Sennacherib's own account of his siege of Jerusalem. The Iraq department of antiquities has worked to preserve the site and named it as the Sennacherib Palace Site Museum. Wall reliefs from Sennacherib’s palace can be viewed online at the British Museum’s official web site.
 
 

Sennacherib's Prism also known as Taylor’s prism is a hexagonal baked clay prism, containing six paragraphs of cuneiform written in the Akkadian language. The text was translated by Daniel David Luckenbill of the University of Chicago Press in 1924. The prism was discovered in 1830 by Colonel Taylor in the ruins of Sennacherib’s palace and was purchased by the British Museum.

Sennacherib’s Prism Contains the Following Text:
“I had completed the palace in the midst of the city of Nineveh for my royal residence.”

"I shut King Hezekiah up like a bird inside Jerusalem."

"Hezekiah, the Judahite”

This siege of Jerusalem by Sennacherib is documented in three books of the Bible. 2nd Kings, 2nd Chronicles and Isaiah. “Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah, that Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the defenced cities of Judah, and took them.” – Isaiah 36

Sennacherib’s prism also contains the name of Merodach Baladan found in the book of Isaiah.

“In my first campaign I accomplished the defeat of Merodach-Baladan”

“At that time Merodach Baladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon.” - Isaiah 39

The prism gives a detailed account of Sennacherib’s war campaigns and he consistently brags about the many people he has killed and what nations he destroyed and forced to pay tribute to him. He describes hanging people on stakes as well as amputating hands and genitalia of his enemies. The Bible states that God sent angels to destroy his entire army for his arrogant threats against Hezekiah and Israel. Full translation of Sennacherib's Prism

“Hear all the words of Sennacherib, which he sent to reproach the living God” – Isaiah 37

 
 

Sennacherib Killed by His Sons - Confirmed
“Sennacherib was killed by his sons.” - Isaiah 37

The Chronicle on the Reigns from Nabu-Nasir to Samas-suma-ukin (ABC 1) is one of the historiographical texts about ancient Assyria and Babylonia.

Line 35 reads: "On the twentieth day of the month Tebetu, Sennacherib, King of Assyria, was killed by his son in a rebellion.”

The historical evidence proves King Sennacherib’s existence and his palace at Nineveh. Sennacherib’s own writings and Assyrian documents testify that he did in fact lay siege to Jerusalem and was killed by his sons just as described in the book of Isaiah.
