Nehemiah 2:11-16 NLT

11 Three days after my arrival at Jerusalem,
12 I slipped out during the night, taking only a few others with me. I had not told anyone about the plans God had put in my heart for Jerusalem. We took no pack animals with us, except the donkey that I myself was riding.
13 I went out through the Valley Gate, past the Jackal's Well, a and over to the Dung Gate to inspect the broken walls and burned gates.

      14 Then I went to the Fountain Gate and to the King's Pool, but my donkey couldn't get through the rubble.

          16 The city officials did not know I had been out there or what I was doing, for I had not yet said anything to anyone about my plans. I had not yet spoken to the religious and political leaders, the officials, or anyone else in the administration.
