It seems like this series is drying up at 322, which is the Gematria of היבשה –  Gershon Gold Feb 19 at 18:37

Three hundred twenty two are the years of the Kings of Judah after Jehoshaphat's alliance to Ahab and/or the birth of Ahazia from that alliance.

From the beginning of his reign until the destruction is 332 years and 6 months, adding up the reigns of all the Kings with no coregencies. Jehoshaphat reigned 25 years, then Jehoram reigned 8, then Ahaziah came to power at 22 years of age. If you say that Ahaziah was a full 22 years old, and into his 23rd year, that would make him fourteen going on 15 when Jehoram came to power, which would mean that he was born from the alliance around 10 years into Jehoshaphat's reign, leaving around 322 years before the temple's destruction.

(If you say he was born right after the alliance, then the alliance itself can be included).
