Nehemiah 3:27

After them the Tekoites repaired another piece
Having finished what they undertook in another part of the wall, ( Nehemiah 3:5 ) , they engage in this part of it; which shows their great zeal and diligence, when their nobles were so backward to it, and withdrew from it:

over against the great tower that lieth out;
the same as in the preceding verse:

even unto the wall of Ophel;
from right against the great tower unto the wall the Tekoites repaired.
