Search "Kingdom of Israel" in wikipedia, you will see that there is none at 525 BC. Click on the most recent one that preceded 525 BC, Kingdom of Judah 931–586 BCE, you will find what happened at the end –  Louis Rhys Aug 27 '13 at 3:47

There was no "Israel" at that time. The Kingdom of Judah was conquered by Babylonia at 587 BC, see Siege of Jerusalem 587 BC. In 539 BCE the Persians conquered Babylonia, and established the Yehud province, which were a peaceful part of the Achaemenid Persian Empire until the fall of the Empire in c. 333 BCE to Alexander the Great.

Wikipedia even has a section describing the biblical version of this period: Biblical version of the Persian years (539-332 BCE)
