{Nehemiah 3:14} But the dung 830 gate 8179 repaired 2388 z8689 Malchiah 4441 the son 1121 of Rechab, 7394 the ruler 8269 of part 6418 of Bethhaccerem; 1021 he x1931 built 1129 z8799 it, and set up 5975 z8686 the doors 1817 thereof, the locks 4514 thereof, and the bars 1280 thereof.
the dung gate:
"And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire." {Neh 2:13} + "Then I brought up the princes of Judah upon the wall, and appointed two great [companies of them that gave] thanks, [whereof one] went on the right hand upon the wall toward the dung gate:" {Neh 12:31}
the ruler:
"And next unto them repaired Rephaiah the son of Hur, the ruler of the half part of Jerusalem." {Neh 3:9} + "And next unto him repaired Shallum the son of Halohesh, the ruler of the half part of Jerusalem, he and his daughters." {Neh 3:12} + "But the gate of the fountain repaired Shallun the son of Colhozeh, the ruler of part of Mizpah; he built it, and covered it, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof, and the wall of the pool of Siloah by the king's garden, and unto the stairs that go down from the city of David. ... After him repaired their brethren, Bavai the son of Henadad, the ruler of the half part of Keilah." {Neh 3:15-18}
Bethhaccerem:
Beth-haccerem was a town of Judah, situated on a mountain, between Jerusalem and Tekoa, according to Jerome on "O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction. ... Reprobate silver shall [men] call them, because the LORD hath rejected them." {Jer 6:1-30}. Dr. Pococke conjectures that the Mountain of the Franks, called also the Mount of Bethulia, from a village of that name near it, west-north-west of Tekoa, is the ancient Beth-haccerem; the position of which seems to agree with the citadel of Herodium, built by Herod, on a moderate-sized hill, sixty furlongs from Jerusalem. "O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction." {Jer 6:1}
