BROAD WALL [הַחוֹמָה הָרְחָבָה hakhomah harekhavah]. The name refers to a west or northwest section of the JERUSALEM wall that was “abandoned” or not repaired in the postexilic restoration because it was still standing (Neh 3:8; 12:38). Stones from existing houses were used to fortify it (Isa 22:10).
