History
Tiglath-Pileser III was a prominent king of Assyria in the 8th century BC and is widely regarded as the founder of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. He is considered one of the most successful military commanders in world history, conquering most of the world known to the ancient Assyrians before his death.

The name Tiglath-Pileser was a throne-name - that is, one given to the king on his accession to the throne, rather than a name given at birth. In translation, it means "my confidence is the son of Esharra." It is given in several different forms in historical records. The Bible records him as Tiglath Pileser and the much-abbreviated Pul (1 Chronicles 5:26 and 2 Kings 15:19,20). This latter resembles the name he took for his coronation as King of Babylon, Pul.

Scriptures
2 Kings 15:29 In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglath Pileser King of Assyria, and took Ijon, and Abelbethmaachah, and Janoah, and Kedesh, and Hazor, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and carried them captive to Assyria.

2 Kings 16:7 So Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglath Pileser King of Assyria, saying, I am thy servant and thy son: come up, and save me out of the hand of the king of Syria, and out of the hand of the king of Israel, which rise up against me.

2 Kings 16:10 And king Ahaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglath Pileser King of Assyria, and saw an altar that was at Damascus: and king Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest the fashion of the altar, and the pattern of it, according to all the workmanship thereof.
