    Barnes' Notes on Nehemiah 3:26

    The marginal reading is better. On the Nethinims see 1 Chronicles 9:2 note.

    Ophel was the slope south of the temple (see the marginal reference "y" note); and the water-gate, a gate in the eastern wall, either for the escape of the superfluous water from the temple reservoirs, or for the introduction of water from the Kidron valley when the reservoirs were low.
