Hebrew - conduit

A water channel or aqueduct in or near Jerusalem channeling water into the city (2 Kings 18:17; 2 Kings 20:20; Isaiah 7:3). The same Hebrew word refers to a trench built up to conduct water flow (1 Kings 18:32-38; Job 38:25; Ezekiel 31:4). The location of the Jerusalem conduit is a matter of debate with different scholars favoring the Pool of Siloam, the Gihon Spring, or outside the wall to the northwest of the city beside the major north-south highway leading to Samaria. The latter location may be the most likely. Aqueducts had been built for Jerusalem before David conquered it with a tunnel providing water for the city (2 Samuel 5:8). Israel's kings evidently supplemented this. In a marvelous engineering feat, Hezekiah had workmen start at both ends and meet in the middle to construct a water tunnel connecting Gihon Spring and the Pool of Siloam (2 Kings 20:20; 2 Chronicles 32:2-4,2 Chronicles 32:30). The tunnel was discovered in 1880.
