Adad-nirari III was succeeded by Shalmaneser III (783-773 BC), and the latter by Assur-dan III (773-755 BC).
In 705 BC, in the flower of his age and at the zenith of his glory, Sargon was assassinated to be succeeded by his son, Sennacherib (704-681 BC), whose name is well known to bible students.

 ANE History: Israel and the Assyrias
However, before Assyria's protracted withdrawal from central and south Syria, Adadnirari III (805-782 BC) was able to strike a terrific blow at Damascus which was sufficiently crippling to enable the Israelites to throw off the shackles the Arameans and fastened upon them and to regain their former boundaries.

 Nabataea: Bible Chronologies Solomon to Hezekiah Part II
Shalmaneser V (727-722 BC) began the siege of Samaria in 723 BC.
The scripture dates for the siege from the fourth to the sixth year of Hezekiah are from Hezekiah's co-regency with Asa his father, which began in 727 BC while the dating for Sennacherib's invasion as Hezekiah's 14th fourteenth year, 701 BC.
So if it be supposed that David made Solomon king the second time in 995 BC, after he himself had reigned forty years, and that his death was shortly after this, early in 994 BC, we shall have dates sufficiently close for the purpose of dating Hadad's stay in Egypt.

 Nabataea: Bible Chronology: Solomon to Hezekiah Part II
During the reign of-Shal-maneser III of Assyria (860-825 BC, usual Assyrian dating) a series of campaigns into Syria were carried out, in which the Assyrians frequently came into contact with well known Biblical figures, among whom are found Ben-hadad (II) and Hazael, kings of Syria, and Jehu, king of Israel, is mentioned once.
Also we saw before that after 738 BC there were no difficulties in the parallel chronologies.
From the mention of Shishak in Solomon's time, 958 BC, to the appearance of Tirhakah in 701 BC is, in the Bible, 257 years, exactly the same interval as given in Breasted's Egyptian Chronology, 945-688 BC, and the intervening points of contact are also spaced to harmonize perfectly.

 Hezekiah   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
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 BC, which would fix 715 BC as Hezekiah's initial year, which would be confirmed by the account of his illness.
By W.F. Albright's calculations, Jehu's initial year is 842 BC; and between it and Samaria's destruction the books of Kings give the total number of the years the kings of Israel ruled as 143 7/12, while for the kings of Judah the number is 165.

 Bible Study - The Galilee Captivity
Both kingdoms were eventually conquered in totality, first Israel in 721 BC by the Assyrians (see Ancient Empires - Assyria), and then Judah in 586 BC by the Babylonians (see Ancient Empires - Babylon), but both were a gradual process of being invaded and the people taken into exile.
Later, Shalmaneser of Assyria invaded Israel and laid siege to Samaria, the capital city of the Kingdom of Israel (Jerusalem was the capital city of the Kingdom of Judah).
Shalmaneser was succeeded (or perhaps deposed) by the former General Sargon (who himself was assassinated by one of his own troops about 705 BC), who brought about the end of the Kingdom of Israel in 721 BC "Against him came up Shalmaneser king of Assyria; and Hoshea became his vassal, and paid him tribute...

 Encyclopedia Overflow pages - 3
Since the artifacts were recovered from a site that was a major religious center as well as a town from the 12th century B.C. to the 8th century A.D., scholars had assumed that the finds would tell much about daily life and ritual in ancient Egypt.
However, until the recovery of the records, there was little information about where individual artifacts were discovered, and therefore, in many cases, it was impossible to assign dates to, or determine the significance of individual objects.
These scholars argued that we do not really know enough of the linguistic conventions of the 9th century BC to call it a fake or genuine on the basis of the Hebrew word "edut (testimony)" for example.
