ν reigned sixteen years. He built the gate of the House of the Lord, which in the Acts of the Apostles is called Beautiful, by the Hebrews the Gate of Jotham, and by others the Tower of the Flock. At this time the prophets Hosea, Amos, Isaiah, and Jonah prophesied in Judsea. After Jotham, Ahaz reigned sixteen years ; after Ahaz, Hezekiah reigned twenty-eight years ; and in the sixth year of his reign, Shalmaneser the king of the Assyrians descended into Samaria and carried off the ten tribes of Israel, and made them dwellers in the land of the Assyrians ; and into their country he introduced in their stead the people who were called Chusseans.
