The King’s Garden
Mention is made of "the king’s garden" in 2 Kings 25:4; Jeremiah 39:4; 52:7 (fundamentally the same passage) in connection with the flight of Zedekiah from Jerusalem, and again in Nehemiah 3:15. The last passage shows that the "garden" was at the pool of Siloah (the Revised Version (British and American) "Shelah"), at the mouth of Tyropeon, near the "fountain gate." This would seem to be "the gate between the two walls which was by the king’s garden" of the passages in 2 Kings and Jeremiah (compare 2 Chronicles 32:5). On the topography, see JERUSALEM; also Robinson, Palestine, II, 142. Arnold (in Herzog) thinks the garden is probably identical with "the garden of Uzza" of 2 Kings 21:18,26.
