{Nehemiah 3:7} And next x3027 unto x5921 them y3027 repaired 2388 z8689 Melatiah 4424 the Gibeonite, 1393 and Jadon 3036 the Meronothite, 4824 the men y582 x376 of Gibeon, 1391 and of Mizpah, 4709 unto the throne 3678 of the governor 6346 on this side 5676 the river. 5104
the Gibeonite:
"And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done unto Jericho and to Ai, ... And Joshua made them that day hewers of wood and drawers of water for the congregation, and for the altar of the LORD, even unto this day, in the place which he should choose." {Jsh 9:3-27} + "And the king called the Gibeonites, and said unto them; (now the Gibeonites [were] not of the children of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites; and the children of Israel had sworn unto them: and Saul sought to slay them in his zeal to the children of Israel and Judah.)" {2Sm 21:2}
"And next to him repaired Ezer the son of Jeshua, the ruler of Mizpah, another piece over against the going up to the armoury at the turning [of the wall]." {Neh 3:19} + "Then Asa the king took all Judah; and they carried away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha was building; and he built therewith Geba and Mizpah." {2Ch 16:6}
the throne:
That is, probably, the palace of the Persian governor, west of the Euphrates; the term throne being used to signify any royal abode. For Sir J. Chardin, describing a splendid tent erected by the king of Persia, says "that there was an inscription wrought upon the cornice of the anti-chamber, which gave it the appellation of the throne of the second Solomon." Sitting upon a throne has, however, sometimes been granted to governors. "And a letter unto Asaph the keeper of the king's forest, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the palace which [appertained] to the house, and for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall enter into. And the king granted me, according to the good hand of my God upon me." {Neh 2:8} - Cross Reference Bible Search
