2 Chronicles 23:15 (King James Version)
So they laid hands on her; and when she was come to the entering of the horse gate by the king's house, they slew her there.
- the horse gate
- This gate was in the eastern wall of the city, towards the brook Kidron, ( Jeremiah 31:40, ,)at which the king's horses probably went out from the stables at Millo. It was near the temple; and some Rabbins suppose that, in order to go to the temple, a person might go on horseback to this place, but was then obliged to alight.
- Nehemiah 3:28
- they slew her there
