Hezekiah's Tunnel, or the Siloam Tunnel (Hebrew: נִקְבַּת השילוח‎, Nikbat HaShiloah) is a tunnel that was dug underneath the City of David in Jerusalem before 701 BC during the reign of Hezekiah of Judah. The tunnel is mentioned in 2 Kings 20:20 in the Bible.

Hezekiah’s Tunnel Inscription - King Hezekiah of Judah ruled from 721 to 686 BC. Fearing a siege by the Assyrian king, Sennacherib, he preserved Jerusalem’s water supply by cutting a tunnel through 1,750 feet of solid rock from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam inside the city walls (2 Kings 20; 2 Chron. 32). At the end of the tunnel, an inscription, celebrates this remarkable accomplishment. #TheStory #Isaiah #KingHezekiah #StandStrong #PurifyYourHeart #BiblicalArchaeology

Edom, they argued, was a simple pastoral society at the time and did not become sufficiently organized or have the power to threaten Israel until much later. However, recent excavations indicate that "Edom was a complex society centuries earlier, (than previously thought) as reflected in the Bible," states Biblical Archaeology Review.
