went out of the gate of his city
That is, all the inhabitants of the city who came to the gate of it, upon the summons given them, and departed from thence to their habitations, having a great opinion of their prince and his son; and moved either with awe of them or love to them, and influenced both by their arguments and example, they agreed to what was proposed to them: and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his
city;
all the men citizens; and not only the adult, and who now went out by the gate of the city, but all their male children likewise were circumcised.
