Hebrew: mishneh (2 Kings 22:14; 2 Chr. 34:22), translated in the Revised Version as “second quarter”, the residence of the prophetess Huldah

The King James Version followed the Jewish commentators, who, following the Targum, gave the Hebrew word its post-Biblical sense, as if it meant a place of instruction. It properly means the “second,” and may therefore denote the lower city (Acra), which was built after the portion of the city on Mount Zion, and was enclosed by a second wall.
