(han' uh nehl) Place name meaning, “God is gracious.” Tower marking northern wall of Jerusalem. Jeremiah predicted its rebuilding in the day of the Lord to come (Jeremiah 31:38 ; compare Zechariah 14:10 ). Nehemiah led the nation to rebuild the tower along with the rest of the Jerusalem wall (Nehemiah 3:1 ; Nehemiah 12:39 ). It may well have been part of the earliest fortress protecting the Temple (Nehemiah 2:8 ; Nehemiah 7:2 NAS).
