Securing the City

1And it will be as the wall was built, and I shall set up the doors, and the gate-keepers, and those singing, and the Levites will be appointed. 2And I shall command Hanani my brother, and Hananiah chief of the fortress, over Jerusalem, for he is as a man of truth, and fearing God above many. 3And it will be said to them, The gates of Jerusalem shall not be opened till the sun being hot; and till they standing by shall shut the doors and fasten: and setting up watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, a man in his watch, and a man before his house.
