I'm not sure what you think you have demonstrated, Ian, but if the best
evidence is what you have presented (and apart from the evidence of the
books of Kings), then we are the ones "without knowledge of the true power
balance in Palestine before the period of Hezekiah." We would need to know a
lot more than we do before we could hope to say that we know better than the
ancient, or not quite so ancient, texts.

If the archaeological indications I have put forward is in fact related to
what the situation was, then we have a good indication that the sources for
much of the material was compiled without knowledge of the true power
balance in Palestine before the period of Hezekiah. We have cut down the
range of possibiliy for when such texts could have been written.
