sists with the king and queen, that Isaiah's prophecy contained many
other predictions relating to this place besides the words by him recited,
it is highly probable that these were especially meant by him; and that
one main reason why he applied this prediction to himself, and to his prefecture
of Heliopolis, which Dean Prideaux well proves was in that part of Egypt,

this temple in Egypt, the very same he had for building it in his own prefecture
of Heliopolis also, which he desired to do, and which he did accordingly.
Dean Prideaux has much ado to avoid seeing this corruption of the Hebrew;
but it being in support of his own opinion about this temple, he durst
