Reference: Towers


Were erected not only in the outer walls and on the heights within cities,

Jg 9:47-49; Ps 48:12; Lu 13:4, but along the frontiers of a country, at points where the approach of an enemy could be descried at a distance, Jg 9:17; Isa 21:6-9; Eze 33:2-6. A tower afforded a refuge to the surrounding inhabitants, in case of invasion; and often, when most of a city was subdued, the tower or citadel remained impregnable. So God is a strong and safe protector of his people, Ps 18:2; 61:8; Pr 18:10. A slight tower or look-out was often erected for the keeper of a vineyard or flock, 2Ch 26:10; Isa 5:2; Mic 4:8; Mt 21:33; and travelers in Palestine see them in use at this day.
