    1 The names and order of them that built the wall. VERSE 1 - Eliashib. * Ne 12:10; 13:28 - the sheep gate. This gate is supposed to have immediately communicated with the temple, and to have been called the sheep gate, because the sheep intended for sacrifice passed through it. But, after all which learned men have written on this subject, which is but of little interest, we scarcely know any thing about these gates: what they were, why called by these names, or in what part of the wall they were situated, beyond what may be learned from the parallel passages. * Ne 12:39 Joh 5:2 - sanctified it. * Ne 12:30 De 20:5 Ps 30:1 *title * Pr 3:6,9 - the tower. * Ne 12:39 Jer 31:38 Zec 14:10 VERSE 2 - next unto him. Heb. at his hand. the men. * Ne 7:36 Ezr 2:34 - Zaccur. * Ne 10:12 VERSE 3 - the fish gate. * Ne 12:39 2Ch 33:14 Zep 1:10 - the beams. * :6; 2:8 - the doors. * Ne 6:1; 7:1 VERSE 4 - Meremoth. * :21; 10:15 - Urijah. * Ezr 8:33 - Uriah. Meshullam. * Ne 10:7 VERSE 5 - the Tekoites. * :27 2Sa 14:2 Am 1:1 - their nobles. * Jud 5:23 Jer 5:4,5 1Co 1:26 1Ti 6:17,18 - put not. * Jer 27:2,8,12; 30:8,9 Mt 11:29 Ac 15:10 VERSE 6 * Ne 12:39 VERSE 7 - the Gibeonite. * Jos 9:3-27 2Sa 21:2 - Mizpah. * :19 2Ch 16:6 - the throne. That is, probably, the palace of the Persian governor, west of the Euphrates; the term throne being used to signify any royal abode: for Sir J. Chardin, describing a splendid tent erected by the king of Persia, says "that there was an inscription wrought upon the cornice of the anti-chamber, which gave it the title(name) of the throne of the second Solomon." Sitting upon a throne has, however, sometimes been granted to governors. * Ne 2:8 VERSE 8 - the goldsmiths. * :31,32 Isa 46:6 - of the apothecaries. * Ge 50:2 Ex 30:25 Ec 10:1 - fortified. or, left. the broad wall. * Ne 12:38 VERSE 9 - the ruler. * :12,17 VERSE 10 - even. * :23,28-30 - Hattush. * Ne 10:4 VERSE 11 - Harim. * Ne 10:5 - Pahath-moab. * Ne 7:11; 10:14 Ezr 2:6; 8:4 - other piece. Heb. second measure. the tower. * Ne 12:38 VERSE 12 - the ruler. * :9,14-18 - he and his daughters. * Ex 35:25 Ac 21:8,9 Php 4:3 VERSE 13 - the valley gate. * Ne 2:13 - Zanoah. There were two towns of the name of Zanoah in the tribe of Judah: see the parallel passages. * Ne 11:30 Jos 15:34,56 1Ch 4:18 VERSE 14 - the dung gate. * Ne 2:13; 12:31 - the ruler. * :9,12,15-18 - Beth-haccerem. Beth-haccerem was a town of Judah, situated on a mountain, between Jerusalem and Tekoa, according to Jerome on Jer. ch. 6. Dr. Pococke conjectures that the Mountain of the Franks, called also the Mount of Bethulia, from a village of that name near it, west-north-west of Tekoa, is the ancient Beth-haccerem; the position of which seems to agree with the citadel of Herodium, built by Herod, on a moderate-sized hill, sixty furlongs from Jerusalem. * Jer 6:1 VERSE 15 - the gate. * Ne 2:14; 12:37 2Ch 32:30 - the ruler. * :9,12,14 - Mizpah. * :7 Jud 20:1,3 - Mizpeh. * Jer 40:6 - Siloah. Siloah was situated under the eastern wall of Jerusalem, between that city and the brook Kedron, and is described by Chateaubriand as lying at the foot of Mount Zion. Dr. Richardson represents the pool of Siloam as occurring higher up the valley of Jehoshaphat, towards the north, than the well of Nehemiah, a little beyond the village of Siloa, and nearly opposite the tombs of Jehoshaphat and Zechariah. * Isa 8:6 - Shiloah. * Lu 13:4 Joh 9:7 - Siloam. the stairs. * 2Sa 5:6,7 VERSE 16 - the ruler. * :9,12,14 - Beth-zur. * Jos 15:58 1Ch 2:45 2Ch 11:7 - the sepulchres. * 2Ch 16:14 Ac 2:29 - the pool. * 2Ki 20:20 Isa 7:3; 22:11 - the house. * 1Ki 14:27,28 2Ch 12:10,11 So 3:7 VERSE 17 - the ruler. * :16 1Ch 23:4 - Keilah. * Jos 15:44 1Sa 23:1,2-13 VERSE 18 - Bavai. i.e., with the desire of God; my goings; by the mercy of the Lord. <\\S#942h\\>. - Henadad. i.e., grace of Hadad. * Ezr 3:9 VERSE 19 - Jeshua. * Ne 10:9; 12:8 - Mizpah. * :15 - the turning. * 2Ch 26:9 VERSE 20 - Zabbai. or, Zaccai. earnestly. * Ec 9:10 Ro 12:11 - Eliashib. * :1,21; 12:22,23; 13:4,28 VERSE 21 - Meremoth. * :4 - Koz. * Ne 7:63 Ezr 2:61 VERSE 22 - the men of the plain. * Ne 6:2; 12:28 VERSE 23 - over against. * :10,29,30 - Azariah. * Ne 10:2 - Maaseiah. * Ne 8:4,7 VERSE 24 - Binnui. * Ne 10:9 - another piece. That which had been left by Azariah, after he had repaired the wall by his own house. It is probable that some of the principal people were either obliged, or voluntarily offered, to repair those parts of the wall which were opposite, or adjacent, to their own houses. The names of those who repaired the walls are commemorated, because it was an undertaking of piety, virtue, and courage, to restore the holy city. * :11,19,27 - the turning. * :20 VERSE 25 - the king's. * Jer 22:14; 39:8 - by the court. * Ne 12:39 Jer 32:2; 33:1; 37:21; 39:15 - Pedaiah. * Ne 8:4 - Parosh. * Ne 7:8 Ezr 2:3 VERSE 26 - Nethinims. * Ne 7:46-56; 10:28 1Ch 9:2 Ezr 2:43-58 - dwelt, etc. or, which dwelt in Ophel, repaired unto. Ophel. or, the tower. * :27; 11:21 2Ch 27:3; 33:14 - the water. The water gate is supposed to have been that by which the Nethinim brought in water for the use of the temple. * Ne 8:1,3; 12:37 VERSE 27 - the Tekoites. * :5 - the wall. * :26 VERSE 28 - the horse. * 2Ki 11:16 2Ch 23:15 Jer 31:40 - every one. * :10,23 VERSE 29 - the son. * Ne 7:40 Ezr 2:37 - Shechaniah. * Ezr 10:2 - the east gate. * Jer 19:2 VERSE 30 - another piece. * :21 - Meshullam. * :4 VERSE 31 - the goldsmith's. * :8,32 - going up of the corner. or, corner-chamber. VERSE 32 - the sheep gate. Thus the whole city was surrounded with a wall; for Eliashib began at the sheep gate. * :1; 12:39 Joh 5:2 - the goldsmiths. The word {tzeraphim} may denote smiths, or refiners, or persons that worked in metals of any kind; but it is generally understood of those who worked in gold. From the remotest period of the history of the Jews, they had artists in all the elegant and ornamental trades; and it appears that goldsmiths, apothecaries, and merchants were formed into companies in the time of Nehemiah. * :8,31 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
