Naves Topical Index

Name of a tower forming part of the wall of Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 3:1; Nehemiah 12:39; Jeremiah 31:38; Zech 14:10

Smith's Bible Dictionary

(whom God graciously gave), The tower of, a tower which formed part of the wall of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 3:1; 12:39) From these two passages, particularly from the former, it might almost be inferred that Hananeel was but another name for the tower of Meah; at any rate they were close together, and stood between the sheep-gate and the fish-gate. This tower is further mentioned in (Jeremiah 31:38) The remaining passage in which it is named, (Zechariah 14:10) also connects this tower with the "corner-gate," which lay on the other side of the sheep-gate.
