Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nehemiah 3:8

_ _ they fortified Jerusalem unto the broad wall — or, “double wall,” extending from the gate of Ephraim to the corner gate, four hundred cubits in length, formerly broken down by Joash, king of Israel [2 Chronicles 25:23], but afterwards rebuilt by Uzziah [2 Chronicles 26:9], who made it so strong that the Chaldeans, finding it difficult to demolish, had left it standing.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nehemiah 3:1-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nehemiah 3:8

Fortified — It is not said, they repaired, but they fortified it, either because this part of the wall was less demolished than the other, and therefore they needed not to repair it, but only to make it stronger: or, to note their extraordinary care and diligence, that they would not only repair it, but make it stronger than ever.
