Water Gate

WATER GATE (שַׁ֤עַר הַמַּ֨יִם, the gate of the water). A Jerusalem (q.v., III, A) city gate, restored by Nehemiah, on the E side of Mt. Zion. It lay opposite the Gihon spring (Neh 3:26), or perhaps a little farther N toward the Temple (cf. 12:37). An open square beside the Water Gate furnished a place of assembly for Ezra’s reading of the law and for erecting booths for the feast of Tabernacles in 444 b.c. (8:1, 3, 16).
