And this is the reason of the levy which King Solomon raised,
&c.] Both of men to work, ( 1 Kings 5:13 ) , and of money to defray the expense:
it was for to build the house of the Lord;
and his own house;
and Millo; which he repaired: (See Gill on 1 Samuel 5:9).
and the wall of Jerusalem;
which, as Abarbinel says, was a large building, there being three walls one within another:
a city in the tribe of Naphtali, and which had been a royal city with the Canaanites; see ( Joshua 11:1 ) ( 19:36 )
which was in the tribe of Manasseh, ( Joshua 17:11 )
which was in the tribe of Ephraim, and formerly a royal city of the Canaanites, ( Joshua 10:33 ) ( 16:3 ) .
