After him repaired Malchiah, the goldsmith's son,.... Or the son of Tzoreph, as some, so called from his business:
unto the place of the Nethinims, and of the merchants; he repaired up to the place where these dwelt:
over against the gate Miphkad; where some think was an house of visitation or correction; and others, where the sanhedrim sat, tried causes, and exercised justice:
and to the going up of the corner; from the east to the north.
