over against the water gate toward the east, and the tower that lieth out.
And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was
before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.
And he read therein before the street that was
before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive
unto the book of the law.
So the people went forth, and brought them
, and made themselves booths, every one upon the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street of the water gate, and in the street of the gate of Ephraim.
And at the fountain gate, which was over against them, they went up by the stairs of the city of David, at the going up of the wall, above the house of David, even unto the water gate eastward.
