King’s Garden
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
The most fertile place in the Kidron Valley. It is irrigated by overflow from the Pool of Siloam, the Kidron brook, the spring En-rogel, and the channel of Shiloah (2 Kgs 25:4; Neh 3:15; Jer 39:4; 52:7; see also 2 Kgs 20:20; 2 Chr 32:30). This garden is also mentioned in connection with Zedekiah’s flight from Jerusalem. It is probably the same “garden of Uzza” referenced in 2 Kings (2 Kgs 21:18, 26).
