Such, it may be supposed, were the {horns of iron} which Zedekiah (who appears to have acted the hero returning from a military triumph) made for himself, when he presumed, in the name of jehovah, to flatter his prince with the promise of victory: `Thus saith the Lord, With these thou shalt push Syria, until they be consumed.'

That The Employing Of, And Associating With The Malignant Party, According As Is Contained In The Public Resolutions, Is Sinful And Unlawful. If there be in the land a malignant party of power and policy, and the exceptions contained in the Act of Levy do comprehend but few of that party, then there need be no more difficulty to prove, that the present public resolutions and proceedings do import an association and conjunction with a malignant party, than to gather a conclusion from clear premises.

The Assyrian Revival and the Struggle for Syria
Assur-nazir-pal (885-860) and Shalmaneser III. (860-825)--The kingdom of Urartu and its conquering princes: Menuas and Argistis. Assyria was the first to reappear on the scene of action.
