John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 2:15

Then went I up in the night by the brook
The brook Kidron:

and viewed the wall;
that was on that side:

and turned back;
did not go quite round the wall, the way perhaps being obstructed with rubbish, and was unpassable or he had not time to do it:

and entered by the gate of the valley, and so returned;
into the city, the same way he went out of it, ( Nehemiah 2:13 ) .
