Nehemiah 12:29

Nehemiah 12:29

Also from the house of Gilgal
Which likewise was in a champaign country in the plains of Jericho, ( Deuteronomy 11:30 ) ( Joshua 5:9 Joshua 5:10 ) ,

and out of the fields of Geba;
which was a Levitical city in the tribe of Benjamin, ( Joshua 21:17 )

and Azmaveth;
the same with Bethazmaveth, ( Nehemiah 7:28 ) where it follows Anathoth and Netophah, as it does in ( Ezra 2:24 ) , and was very probably in the tribe of Benjamin:

for the singers had builded them villages round about Jerusalem;
that they might be near it, to do their duty when required; by which it appears that the said places were near Jerusalem.
