(9) Built towers.--To defend the approaches.

At the corner gate.--Over, that is, commanding the gate (2Chronicles 25:23). Probably the north-west corner of the city wall.

The valley gate.--Syriac, "the west gate." In the western wall, the modern Jaffa gate. These two towers protected the most exposed points of the capital.

At the turning of the wall.--Over the angle (ha-miqcoa ?), i.e., on the eastern side of Zion, at a bend in the wall. This tower defended both Zion and Moriah against attacks from the south-east. (Nehemiah 3:19-20; Nehemiah 3:24-25.)

And fortified them.--Literally, made them (the gates) strong. Or rather, perhaps, he made the towers strong, i.e., put them in a posture of defence. (Comp. 2Chronicles 11:11.) The margin is wrong. Syriac, "girded (or bound) them at their corners with clamps (glide, i.e., ???????) of iron."

Verse 9. - Built towers in Jerusalem. The excellent map, above alluded to (2 Chronicles 25:23), in Conder's 'Handbook to the Bible' (2nd edit.), facing p. 334, furnishes a very clear idea alike of these towers and of the walls of Jerusalem, as we can make them out, for Uzziah's times. For the corner gate, see our note, 2 Chronicles 25:23. Valley gate. This is called by some the Gehenna gate. As many as three sites, reducible perhaps to two, are proposed for this gate:

(1) the west gate, called somewhile the "Jaffa" gate; or

(2) a gate over the valley of" Hinnom;" or, if it be not the same,

(3) that at the valley of Tyropoeon. And at the turning; Hebrew, הַמִקְצוַע. This word occurs eleven times, viz. twice in Exodus, four times in Nehemiah, four times in Ezekiel, and in this place, and is always rendered "corner" or" turning;" the word wanted is angle. The site of this gate cannot very certainly be pronounced upon. Perhaps the angle that marks the gate is that at the south-east corner of the temple plateau. The language of Nehemiah 3:19 is our best clue: "Next to him Ezer repaired... a piece over against the going up to the armoury at the turning." 26:1-15 As long as Uzziah sought the Lord, and minded religion, God made him to prosper. Those only prosper whom God makes to prosper; for prosperity is his gift. Many have owned, that as long as they sought the Lord, and kept close to their duty, they prospered; but when they forsook God, every thing went cross. God never continues either to bless the indolent or to withhold his blessing from the diligent. He will never suffer any to seek his face in vain. Uzziah's name was famed throughout all the neighbouring countries. A name with God and good people makes truly honourable. He did not delight in war, nor addict himself to sports, but delighted in husbandry.
