During his reign he was a tributary of King Tiglath-pileser III of Assyria.[1] Rezin's reign ended around 732 BC when Tiglath-pileser sacked Damascus and annexed Aram.[2] According to the Bible, the sack of Damascus was instigated by King Ahaz of Judah and ended in Rezin's execution (2 Kings 16:7-9 ). The execution of Rezin is neither confirmed nor disconfirmed by independent evidence.[3]
