The inscriptions of Sargon and Sennacherib are available in English transla-tion in George A. Barton’s Archaeology and the Bible, 6th ed., pp. 465 ff.   3 Mal. 1.11. The growth of the diaspora has clearly been shown by Charles C. Torrey in his Ezra Studies, pp. 294 ff. and by Antonin Causse in Les dispersés d’Israël. For the depopulation of Palestine after 586, cf. William F. Albright, Archaeology of Palestine and the Bible, 3d ed., pp. 169 ff., 218 ff. 4 Ezek. 6.13; 11.16; 20.40– 41; 43.10– 17. Since the days of the talmudic rabbis ( Meg. 29a) this “ little sanctuary” has often been identified with the synagogue. Although the general talmudic view that the synagogue dates back to Moses, the patriarchs, or to an even earlier period, is evi-dently unhistorical, this particular tradition seems to embody a kernel of truth. Cf. also Johannes Jeremias, “ Hesekieltempel und Serubbabel-tempel,” Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft, LII ( 1934), 109– 12. 5 A. Menes, in his “ Tempel und Synagoge,” ibid., L ( 1932), 268– 76, makes it plausible that we have in Josh. 22.9– 34 an exilic defense of the new institution against the adherents of the old type of worship. Cf. also Ps. 40; 51; 69.31 ff. 6 M. Sanh. I, 6; Susannah 1.4; Nehem. 1.1– 8.
