Fish Gate
        A north gate of the second quarter of Jerusalem (Zephaniah 1:10) mentioned in connection with fortifications built by Manasseh (2 Chronicles 33:14). The gate was rebuilt during the time of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 3:3; Nehemiah 12:39). The name is perhaps derived from the proximity of the gate to the fish market. (Compare Nehemiah 13:16-22.)
