Note: There is one hundred ten (110) year difference in the Chronology of Usher, and early Bible scholars, from the actual dates taken of the "Rock of Behistun", showing the inscription of Daris Hystaspis. Due to this fact, in the Scriptures even one day into the next year, or of a reign is considered to be a full year. Approximate date of the fall of the house of Israel started about 745 B.C. and ended about 722 B.C. The house of Judah continued another hundred and fifty years after the fall of Israel. Then Judah's seventy years of Captivity started in Babylon.
