Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
KING’S GARDEN ( 2 Kings 25:4 , Jeremiah 39:4; Jeremiah 52:7 , Nehemiah 3:16 ). This garden was clearly near the ‘gate of the two walls’ which was near the Pool of Siloam, and it was in all probability just outside the walls, being irrigated by overflow water from the Siloam tunnel and pool, just as the land in this situation is treated to-day. Indeed, the garden may have covered much the same area as is now cultivated as irrigated vegetable garden by the women of SilwÃ¢n . See Kidron [Brook of], Siloam
