Nehemiah 2:13 New English Translation (NET Bible)

13 I proceeded through the Valley Gate by night, in the direction of the Well of the Dragons[a] and the Dung Gate,[b] inspecting[c] the walls of Jerusalem that had been breached and its gates that had been destroyed by fire.

Footnotes:

  1. Nehemiah 2:13 tn Or “Well of the Serpents”; or “Well of the Jackals” (cf. ASV, NIV, NLT).
  2. Nehemiah 2:13 tn Or “Rubbish Gate” (so TEV); NASB “Refuse Gate”; NCV “Trash Gate”; CEV “Garbage Gate.”
  3. Nehemiah 2:13 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.
