He took away the Sabbath canopy that had been built at the temple and removed the royal entryway outside the temple of the LORD, in deference to the king of Assyria. (2 Kings 16:18)

ואת־מיסך השבת אשר־בנו בבית ואת־מבוא המלך החיצונה הסב בית יהוה מפני מלך אשור

"the shabbot canopy that they built in the temple, and the entryway of the king, he caused to be moved around in the house of Yahveh from before the king of Ashur"

"The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things (Daniel 11:31-37) ... he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. (Dan. 9:27)
