Nehemiah 12:37

Nehemiah 12:37

And at the fountain gate, which was over against them
Of which see ( Nehemiah 2:14 ) and which was to the south of the dung gate:

they went up;
that is, one of the two companies, that which took to the right on the wall, ( Nehemiah 12:31 ) with which these words are to be connected:

by the stairs of the city of David;
which went up to the city of Zion, built on an eminence:

at the going up of the wall, above the house of David;
where the wall was higher, and there was an ascent to it:

even unto the water gate eastward;
of which see ( Nehemiah 3:26 ) ( 8:16 ) turning from the south to the east, and so drew nigh the temple.
