Darby Bible Translation
All the land from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem shall be turned as the Arabah; and [Jerusalem] shall be lifted up, and shall dwell in her own place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner-gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.

Young's Literal Translation
Changed is all the land as a plain, From Gebo to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, And she hath been high, and hath dwelt in her place, Even from the gate of Benjamin To the place of the first gate, unto the front gate, And from the tower of Hananeel, Unto the wine-vats of the king.

CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
All the land shall be turned as a plain - Or rather, "He shall encompass the whole land as a plain." He shall cast his defence all around it; from Geba, in Benjamin, north of Jerusalem, (Joshua 21:17), to Rimmon in Judah, to the south of Jerusalem, Joshua 15:32.
It shall be lifted up - The city shall be exalted.
And inhabited in her place - Jerusalem, shall be rebuilt In the very place in which it originally stood. From Benjamin's gate, which was probably on the north side of Jerusalem, unto the place of the first gate, supposed to be that called the old gate, Nehemiah 3:6; Nehemiah 12:39, placed by Lightfoot towards the southwest.
Unto the corner gate - See 2 Kings 14:13.
The tower of Hananeel - This tower and the corner gate seem to be placed as two extremities of the city.
Unto the king's wine-presses - Near to the king's gardens, southward. - See Newcome.
