Nisroch

Additional Links
(nihss' rahch) God worshiped by the Assyrian king Sennacherib (2 Kings 19:37; Isaiah 37:38 ). No god of this name is otherwise known. The name is perhaps a (deliberate?) corruption of the name Marduk, Nusku (the fire-god), or Ashur (compare early Greek readings Esdrach and Asorach).
