John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 6:1

Now it came to pass, when Sanballat and Tobiah, and Geshem
the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded

Quite finished it:

and that there was no breach left therein;
but all was made up firm and strong:

though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;
not upon all of them, though some might by the particular builders of them; and they all of them might be ready made, though not as yet put upon the hinges.
