The king mentioned in Ezra 7:1, in the seventh year (B.C. 458) of whose reign Ezra led a second colony of Jews back to "Jerusalem, was probably Longimanus, who reigned for forty years" "(B.C. 464-425); the grandson of Darius, who, fourteen years" "later, permitted Nehemiah to return and rebuild Jerusalem."
