Saul (? [see note below]), David (1005-965), Solomon (968-928) (temple begun 964, see 1 Kgs 6:1)
The writing prophets placed closer to the left preached against
Dates taken from Cogan, ABD, 1: 1005-11 (mild adjustments at Ahaz, Hezekiah, Manasseh from Coogan 2009, 418; for alternate see Thiele, Albright; also see Walton and Hill, 208). Saul’s timing unclear—cf. 1 Sam 13:1 MT (NRSV and ESV get the basic sense); (if from Acts 13:21 is “40” stylized?).
