Daniel 9 describes a prophecy of 70 sevens. This is a period of 490 years. The first 70 years of this prophecy are the 70 years of exile starting after the destruction of the First Temple by the Bavlim.

The remaining 420 years are from the building of the Second Temple until its destruction by the Romans 420 years later.
