Nehemiah 2:10

Context

Nehemiah 2:13

Context
2:13 I proceeded through the Valley Gate by night, in the direction of the Well of the Dragons 2  and the Dung Gate, 3  inspecting 4  the walls of Jerusalem that had been breached and its gates that had been destroyed by fire.

1 tn Heb “servant” (so KJV, ASV; NAB “slave”; NCV “officer.” This phrase also occurs in v. 19.

2 tn Or “Well of the Serpents”; or “Well of the Jackals” (cf. ASV, NIV, NLT).

3 tn Or “Rubbish Gate” (so TEV); NASB “Refuse Gate”; NCV “Trash Gate”; CEV “Garbage Gate.”

4 tc For the MT reading שֹׂבֵר (sover, “inspecting”) the LXX erroneously has שֹׁבֵר (shover, “breaking”). However, further destruction of Jerusalem’s walls was obviously not a part of Nehemiah’s purpose.
