Enemes'sar (Ε᾿νεμέσσαρος and Ε᾿νεμεσσάρ) is the name under which SHATMIANESER SEE SHATMIANESER (q.v.) appears in the book of Tobit (1:2,13, 15, 16). The change of the name is a corruption, the first syllable Shal being dropped (compare the Bupalussor of Abydenus, which represents Nabopolassar), and the order of the liquids m and n being reversed. The author of Tobit makes Enemessar lead the children of Israel into captivity (2Ki 1:2), following the apparent narrative of the book of Kings (2Ki 17:3-6; 2Ki 18:9-11). "He regards Sennacherib not only as his successor, but as his son (2Ki 1:15), for which he has probably no authority beyond his own speculations upon the text of Scripture. SEE TOBIT.
