King of Judah of the 7th and 8th centuries BC (2 Kings 18). When King Hezekiah learned that the dreaded Assyrian army had arrived in Israel, he recognized the threat his exposed water supply posed for Jerusalem’s survival. He dug a tunnel through the ridge on which the city was built that brought water to the other side; this water tunnel helped save the city of Jerusalem from the Assyrian siege. To this day, this extraordinary accomplishment ranks as one of the engineering marvels of the ancient world.
