Miphkad Gate

(mihf' kad) KJV, TEV transliteration of the Hebrew name of a gate of Jerusalem or of the Temple (Nehemiah 3:31 ), following the earliest Greek translation in taking Miphkad as a proper name. Other translations take Miphkad as a common noun. Suggested meanings include: inspection (NAS, NIV); muster (REB, NRSV); or prison (compare Jeremiah 52:11 ). If the Miphkad Gate is a city gate, it is perhaps identical with the Benjamin Gate (Jeremiah 37:13; Jeremiah 38:7; Zechariah 14:10 ), located at the northernmost point on the east wall (perhaps identical with the Gate of the Guard, Nehemiah 12:39 ).
