Sennacherib of Assyria records an exchange with Hezekiah, the Jew:
"As to Hezekiah, the Jew, he did not submit to my yoke, I laid siege to 46 of his strong cities, walled forts and to the countless small villages in his vicinity, and conquered (them)... Himself I made a prisoner in Jerusalem, his royal residence, like a bird in a cage (288)."
