    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 31:39

    Upon the hill Gareb - Gareb and Goath are out of the limits of this city. The latter is supposed to be Golgotha; that is, the heap of Gotha, which, being the place where our Lord was crucified, was without the city. These hills were a little to the north-west of the old city walls: but are destined to be within the new city. See Dr. Blayney on all these verses.

    Goath - Goah. Unknown.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 31:39

    31:39 The line - That is, it shall be built round about upon its old foundations.
