Nehemiah 2:11-16 KJV

11 So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
12 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon .
13 And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well * , and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down , and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.
14 Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king's pool: but there was no place for the beast that was under me to pass .
15 Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall, and turned back , and entered by the gate of the valley, and so returned .
16 And the rulers knew not whither I went , or what I did ; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.
