Hazael King of Syria - Anointed by Elijah

Hazael King of SyriaKing Hazael of Damascus framed by a lotus flower. Carved ivory plaque, 8th century BCE. From Arslan Tash, ancient Hadatu, Northern Syria 17.8 x 5.6 cm AO 11488 Louvre, Departement des Antiquites Orientales, Paris, France

This Ivory Statuette standing nearly 7 inches tall represents Hazael, ancient King of Aram Damascus (Syria) who fought against Israel. In the Bible the Lord sent the prophet Elijah to anoint Hazael to be king over Syria in the future (1Kings 19:15). Many years later the Syrian king Hadadezer became very sick and Hazael suffocated him and seized the throne. Hazael reigned for about 37 years (842-805 B.C.). He went to war with Israel in the north and Judah in the south. Assyrian records indicate wars with Syria, and an inscription by Shalmaneser III mention Hazael and his son Ben-hadad by name:

"I fought with Ben-hadad. I accomplished his defeat. Hazael, son of a nobody, seized his throne."

"In the 18th year of my reign for the 16th time I crossed the Euphrates. Hazael of Damascus trusted to the strength of his armies and mustered his troops in full force. Senir (Mount Hermon), a mountain summit which is in front of Lebanon, he made his stronghold. I fought with him; his defeat I accomplished; 600 of his soldiers with weapons I laid low; 1,121 of his chariots, 470 of his horses, with his camp I took from him. To save his life, he retreated; I pursued him; in Damascus, his royal city, I shut him up. His plantations I cut down. As far as the mountains of the Hauran I marched. Cities without number I wrecked, razed, and burnt with fire. Their spoil beyond count I carried away. As far as the mountains of Baal-Rosh, which is a headland of the sea (at the mouth of the Nahr el-Kelb, Dog River), I marched; my royal likeness I there set up. At that time I received the tribute of the Syrians and Sidonians and of Yahua (Jehu) the son of Khumri (Omri)" - Shalmaneser III 842 B.C.

"Ben-Hadad II (Heb.), was the king of Aram Damascus at the time of the battle of Qarqar at 853 BC. He, along with Irhuleni of Hamath, led a coalition of eleven kings (listed as twelve) against the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III, at Qarqar, and fought Shalmaneser six times with the aid of Irhuleni twice more and possibly the rest of the coalition that fought at Qarqar. He appears again in the Tel Dan Stele as most likely the unknown author's father. " - Wikipedia

This ivory statuette came from the palace of Hazael the ancient king of Damascus. It was discovered in the ruins of Arslan Tash in north Syria (ancient Hadatu) and is important in the study of Biblical archaeology. Several artifacts from the palace of Hazael are now in the Aleppo Museum in Syria.

    From Eliyahu

    The news story presented above demonstrates how Biblical archaeology verifies Hazael King of Syria, who was anointed by Elijah the Prophet, as a real person. This can be added to the Seal of Jezebel displayed in our last newsletter, and other artifacts verifying other persons from the Elijah story. Yes, as Ya’akov HaTsadeek (James the Just) said about Elijah: "Elijah was a man of like feeling to us" (James 5:17). We can be encouraged by the extraordinary deeds of Elijah, not because he was some sort of super-human legendary hero, but because he was a man of flesh just like us! If YHWH could do such extraordinary things with Elijah, in critical times, then, can He not do the same with you and I in these Last Days? In our program this week we begin our examination of Elijah and his relationship to the story of Ahab and Jezebel. As we consider Elijah my prayer is that you will be encouraged by his faith and his faithfulness, and that you will be strengthened and built up in our common struggle against the same forces Elijah faced down in his day. He was like us, an overcomer by faith. YHWH sustained and supported him against the onslaught, and gave him the personal victory in the midst of wickedness all around. In these dark days, Let us make Elijah's experience of victory our own.
