(25) The tower which lieth out from the king's high house.--Better, the high tower outlying from the king's palace.

That was by the court of the prison.--The palace generally had its prison, and near this was the "prison-gate" of Nehemiah 12:39.

Verse 25. - The tower which lieth out from the king's high house. In the original it is uncertain whether the word translated "high" belongs to "tower" or "house." Most commentators attach it to "tower." The "king's house" of this place can be nothing but the old palace of David, which was in this quarter, while Solomon's was on the opposite, or western, hill This palace, like Solomon s (Jeremiah 32:2), would naturally have its prison, which would stand in its own court. From this prison, the "prison gate" of Nehemiah 12:39 took its name.
