Adrammelech was a disturbing false god worshiped by the people of ancient Sepharvaim, a town in Assyria. The Sepharvites would sacrifice human life as an offering to this man-made god, a familiar practice in other ancient cultures, such as the Aztecs, Romans, Vikings, and Egyptians. In the Second Book of Kings, Seventeenth Chapter, the Sepharvites served Adrammelech, all the while also worshiping the true God of Israel, the same One who commanded them not to bow down to any other gods before Him. Adrammelech symbolizes sheer idolatry and hypocrisy against the Living God—the One who commanded "thou shall not worship any other gods" and "thou shall not murder", yet the Sepharvites were willing to burn their fellow men out of ritualistic worship to their 'other' empty idols.
