  Rezin 
  firm;  a  prince,  a  king  of  Syria,  who  joined  Pekah  (q.v.)  in  an 
  invasion  of  the  kingdom  of  Judah  (2  Kings  15:37;  16:5-9;  Isa. 
  7:1-8).  Ahaz  induced  Tiglath-pileser  III.  to  attack  Damascus, 
  and  this  caused  Rezin  to  withdraw  for  the  purpose  of  defending 
  his  own  kingdom.  Damascus  was  taken  and  Rezin  was  slain  in 
  battle  by  the  Assyrian  king,  and  his  people  carried  into 
  captivity,  B.C.  732  (2  Kings  16:9).
