{Nehemiah 3:1} Then Eliashib 475 the high 1419 priest 3548 rose up 6965 z8799 with his brethren 251 the priests, 3548 and they builded 1129 z8799 x853 the sheep 6629 gate; 8179 they x1992 sanctified 6942 z8765 it, and set up 5975 z8686 the doors 1817 of it; even unto x5704 the tower 4026 of Meah 3968 they sanctified 6942 z8765 it, unto x5704 the tower 4026 of Hananeel. 2606
Eliashib:
"And Jeshua begat Joiakim, Joiakim also begat Eliashib, and Eliashib begat Joiada," {Neh 12:10} + "And [one] of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, [was] son in law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me." {Neh 13:28}
the sheep gate:
This gate is supposed to have immediately communicated with the temple, and to have been called the sheep gate, because the sheep intended for sacrifice passed through it. But, after all which learned men have written on this subject, which is but of little interest, we scarcely know anything about these gates. What they were, why called by these names, or in what part of the wall they were situated, beyond what may be learned from the parallel passages. "And from above the gate of Ephraim, and above the old gate, and above the fish gate, and the tower of Hananeel, and the tower of Meah, even unto the sheep gate: and they stood still in the prison gate." {Neh 12:39} + "Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep [market] a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches." {Jhn 5:2}
sanctified it:
"And the priests and the Levites purified themselves, and purified the people, and the gates, and the wall." {Neh 12:30} + "And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying, What man [is there] that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man dedicate it." {Deu 20:5} + "[[A Psalm [and] Song [at] the dedication of the house of David.]] I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me." {Psa 30:1} *title "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." {Prv 3:6} + "Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:" {Prv 3:9}
the tower:
"And from above the gate of Ephraim, and above the old gate, and above the fish gate, and the tower of Hananeel, and the tower of Meah, even unto the sheep gate: and they stood still in the prison gate." {Neh 12:39} + "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the city shall be built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel unto the gate of the corner." {Jer 31:38} + "All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and [from] the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses." {Zch 14:10}
