Isaiah's Prophesy

Isaiah's Prophesy
(II Kings 19 32-36)

 Therefore thus says Hashem about the king of Assyria: He will not enter this city, and will not shoot there an arrow; he will not approach it with a shield, and will not pour a ramp against it.  On the route by which he came he will retreat, but he will not enter this city – the word of Hashem.  And I shall protect this city, to save it, for My sake and for the sake of My servant David.  And it was that [very] night: An angel of Hashem went out and struck down one hundred eighty-five thousand [people] of the Assyrian camp.  The rest arose [early] in the morning and behold – they were all dead corpses!  So Sennacherib king of Assyria journeyed forth, went and returned; and he settled in Nineveh.

(I Kings 6 1-3) 
In the four hundred and eightieth year after the Children of Israel’s exodus from the land of Egypt – in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, which is the second month – he built the temple for Hashem.  The Temple that Solomon built for Hashem sixty cubits [was] its length, twenty its width, and thirty cubits its height.  The Hall in front of the Sanctuary of the Temple: twenty cubits [was] its length across the width of the Temple; and ten cubits its width, in front of the Temple.

(I Kings 6 38) 
And in the eleventh year, in the month of Bul, which is the eighth month, the House was completed according to all its particulars and all its specifications; he built it over seven years. 

(I Kings 9 14-15) 
Hiram sent the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold.  This is a description of the levy that King Solomon imposed to build the Temple of Hashem; his own palace; the Millo and the wall of Jerusalem; Hazor and Megiddo; Gezer

(I Kings 3 1) 
Solomon made a marriage alliance with Pharaoh, king of Egypt; he took Pharaoh’s daughter in marriage and brought her to the City of David until he finished building his house and the House of Hashem and the wall of Jerusalem all around.

 (II Chronicles 3 1-5) 
Solomon then began building the Temple of Hashem in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where He had appeared to his father David.  He established it at David’s place, the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.  He began to build on the second [day] of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign.  These are [the dimensions] of the foundations laid by Solomon for building the Temple of God: The length – in cubits like the original measurement – was sixty cubits.  The Hall whose length ran along the width of the front of the Temple, was twenty cubits [long], and its height was a hundred and twenty [cubits].  He overlaid it inside with pure gold. He covered over the large chamber with cypress wood, which he then overlaid with fine gold, and he drew palm trees and chains on it.
