I. Sheep Gate

Here, A-li-a-shib the high priest, with his brethren the priests, are engaged in a holy undertaking. The enemies of the Lord must grieve to see the pious industry of these men. They build it; they sanctify it; for it is the gate through which the sacrifices of the Temple must need pass; they set up, the doors of it; even unto the tower of Me-ah on the right hand, and to that of Ha-nan-e-el on the left, will they pursue their work in wisdom, strength, and beauty, aided by the men of Jericho and Zac-cur the son of Im-ri.
