The conversion of the Ninevites in response to Jonah’s message of judgment took place about 760 b.c. The revival was evidently short-lived, because the Assyrians soon returned to their ruthless practices. In 722 b.c. Sargon II of Assyria destroyed Samaria, the capital of the northern kingdom of Israel, and scattered the ten tribes. Led by Sennacherib, the Assyrians also came close to capturing Jerusalem in the reign of King Hezekiah in 701 b.c. By the time of Nahum (c. 660 b.c.), Assyria reached the peak of its prosperity and power under Ashurbanipal (669–633 b.c.). This king extended Assyria’s influence farther than had any of his predecessors.The Open Bible: New King James Version, electronic ed. (Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1998).
