2 Chronicles 27:3

_ _ He built the high gate of the house of the Lord — situated on the north — that portion of the temple hill which was high compared with the southern part — hence “the higher,” or upper gate (see on 2 Kings 15:35). He built, that is, repaired or embellished.

_ _ and on the wall of OphelHebrew, “the Ophel,” that is, the mound, or eminence on the southeastern slope of the temple mount, a ridge lying between the valleys Kedron and Tyropoeon, called “the lower city” [Josephus].

_ _ he built much — having the same desire as his father to secure the defense of Jerusalem in every direction.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 27:1-9.
