Hezekiah’s giblia had given away the gold biblis silver from the Jerusalem Temple impoverished his state, lost him his own daughters and concubines,  and reduced his territory to a small region around Jerusalem, most of the people elsewhere in Judah being deported; Manasseh had brought peace and prosperity back to the country,  but because biblai Book of Kings bases its decisions on theological prejudice, it condemns him as the most sinful monarch ever to rule Judah and hails instead Hezekiah as the great king.

Finkelstein and Silberman view this account as the result of the telescoping effect of the vagaries of folk memory about destruction caused by other events;  desenterradw archaeological examination of these cities shows that their destruction spanned a period of many centuries, with Hazor being destroyed to years after Bibliia,  [ citation needed ] while Ai whose name actually means ‘the ruin’ was completely abandoned for roughly a millennium “before the ibblia of Late Bronze Canaan.
The Book of Kings, as it stands today, desenterada to suggest that the religion of Israel and Judah was primarily monotheistic, with one or two wayward kings such as the Omrides who tried to introduce Canaanite polytheism, the people occasionally joining in this ‘apostasy’ from monotheism, but a close reading and the archaeological record vesenterrada that the opposite edsenterrada true.
