2 Chronicles 32:18

_ _ they cried with a loud voice ... unto the people of Jerusalem ... on the wall — It appears that the wall on the west side of the city reached as far to the side of the uppermost pool of Gihon at that time as it does now, if not farther; and the wall was so close to that pool that those sent to negotiate with the Assyrian general answered him in their own tongue (see on 2 Kings 18:27).
