Isaiah 37:29, "I will put My hook in thy nose and My bridle in thy lips," is illustrated in the Assyrian monuments, which represent captives with bridles attached to rings inserted in their under lip, and held in the hand of the king; some of the captives with short beards, tasseled caps, long tunics, and hosen or boots (Daniel 3:21), seem in physiognomy Jews, or Israelites of the ten tribes. The king in one representation is thrusting out the captive's eye with a spear, as Zedekiah was treated by Nebuchadnezzar.
