The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible2 Chronicles 27:3
He built the high gate in the house of the Lord…
note on (2 Kings 15:35)
and on the wall of Ophel he built much;
which Kimchi interprets an high
place; it was the eastern part of Mount Zion. Josephus F6 calls it
Ophlas, and says it joined to the eastern porch of the temple; and some
have thought the porch of the temple is meant; the Targum renders it a
palace; it is a tradition of the Jews that it was the holy of holies F7.
