Hezekiah: A Possible Invasion By The Assyrians

Satisfactory Essays
Hezekiah prepared for a possible invasion by the Assyrians during Sennacherib's reign by preparing a sheltered water supply (Tullock & McEntire, 2012). He created a pool of water by digging a 1700 foot long tunnel (Tullock & McEntire, 2012). The pool of water did little to hold off Sennacherib, as the Assyrians conquered and retrieved Hezekiah’s treasures and gold (Tullock & McEntire, 2012). Hezekiah also prayed at the temple (Tullock & McEntire, 2012).
