  Hezekiah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hezekiah anticipated the Assyrian invasion, and made at least one major preparation: in an impressive engineering feat, a tunnel 533 meters long was dug in order to provide Jerusalem underground access to the waters of the Spring of Gihon, which lay outside the city.
However, verse 13 of the same chapter states that Sennacherib invaded Judah in the fourteenth year of Hezekiah; the Assyrian records leave no doubt that this invasion took place in 701 BCE, which would fix 715 BCE as Hezekiah's initial year, which would be confirmed by the account of his illness.
This attempts to harmonize the reference to Hezekiah reigning during the conquest of Samaria (2 Kings 18:9-10), and assumes the reference to Sennacherib's attack in 701 was either a second campaign or that the reference to it being in Hezekiah's 14th year is a corruption.

 Isaiah c. 740-681 BC
It has been theorized that the book itself is a combination of the writings of Isaiah and "Second" Isaiah, a man who lived mid- to late sixth century BC and simply carried on the original Isaiah's tradition in chapters 40 - 55, teaching that "the Lord," or Yahweh, controls the destinies of all people.

 BIBLE & SPADE: Ch XIII- Sennacherib's Invasion
That the fall of the Northern Kingdom made a deep im­pression on Jerusalem is shown by the reforms of Hezekiah and the increased influence of the prophetical schools in diplomatic affairs.
It is true that in 701 BC the Ethiopian king of Egypt was Shabataka, and that Tirhakah did not succeed to the throne till 689 BC.
The death of Sennacherib (680 BC) recorded as a fulfilment of Isaiah's prophecy—and it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adram-melech and Sharezer smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Ararat.
