What does Nehemiah 3:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 3:15

But the gate of the fountain
Of which see ( Nehemiah 2:14 )

repaired Shallum, the son of Colhozeh, the ruler of part of Mizpah;
of a tract, district, town, or city so called; perhaps that in the tribe of Benjamin; see ( Nehemiah 3:7 ) ,

he built it, and covered it;
roofed it, which is not said of any of the other gates, whether because of the fountain at it:

and set up the doors thereof
finished it completely:

and the wall of the pool of Siloah, by the king's garden;
which was formerly without the wall, on the west, but afterwards taken in by Manasseh, who built it; see ( 2 Chronicles 33:14 ) , and from hence the king's garden was watered:

and unto the stairs that go down from the city of David:
Zion, which was built on an eminence, from which they went down by steps into the lower city Acra.
