I just need to know how the work of God was carried out with all the 12 tribes of Israel getting involved. This is purely division of labor. As believers we can also do something in house of the Lord.

That’s a very interesting issue.
I tried to search the ‘’Fish Gate’’ on Google and there is a lot of information.
I just wish you search by yourself, just typing ‘’Fish Gate’’, because this page does not allow to publish links.
God bless you.

Where did the water for the fish gate come from?

It appears that they are buidling in sequential order with same tribes/family order. Maybe for protection.....
