Hananeel, Tower of

Nehemiah 3:1-24; Nehemiah 3:32; Nehemiah 12:39. Either the same as "the tower of Meeah," i.e. the hundred, or next it, between the sheep gate and fish gate S. of Jerusalem. A breach reaching from it to the "gate of the corner" (2 Kings 14:13; 2 Chronicles 26:9) Jeremiah foretells (Jeremiah 31:38) shall be "rebuilt to Jehovah," and "not thrown down any more for ever." Connected with "the corner gate" (which was on the other side of the sheep gate), also in Zechariah 14:10, where Ewald translated "on to the corner gate and tower of Hananeel on to the king's wine presses."
