English Text:

Israelite Hazor, from the 10th century BCE (the time of the United Monarchy), included only the upper city. The area of the Israelite city extended over some 35 dunams, and its inhabitants numbered between 1,000 and 1,500. King Solomon apparently fortified it: "This was the purpose of the forced labor which Solomon imposed: It was to build the House of the Lord, his own palace, the Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and [to fortify] Hazor, Megiddo, and Gezer" (1 Kings 9:15).

In the days of Ahab (the 9th century BCE) Hazor extended over the entire area of the upper city (about 100 dunams), and public buildings were constructed, among them a water system, fortress, and storehouses.

Israelite Hazor was destroyed in the military campaign of Tiglath-pileser III in 732 BCE, and its residents were exiled together with the inhabitants of the entire Galilee (2 Kings 15:29).
