35 (A)Then it happened that night that the angel of the Lord went out and struck 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians; and when [a]men rose early in the morning, behold, all of them were [b]dead. 36 So (B)Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and returned home, and lived at (C)Nineveh. 37 It came about as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, that [c](D)Adrammelech and Sharezer killed him with the sword; and they escaped into (E)the land of Ararat. And (F)Esarhaddon his son became king in his place.
