Ezra 4:2

2they approached Zerubbabel and the leaders of the families and said to them, “Let us build with you, for we also worship your God and have been sacrificing to Him
Alt Hb tradition reads have not been sacrificing
since the time King Esar-haddon of Assyria
Esar-haddon reigned 681-669 b.c.
brought us here.” c
