Reference: Wall


Cities were surrounded by walls, as distinguished from "unwalled villages" (Eze 38:11; Le 25:29-34). They were made thick and strong (Nu 13:28; De 3:5). Among the Jews walls were built of stone, some of those in the temple being of great size (1Ki 6:7; 7:9-12; 20:30; Mr 13:1-2). The term is used metaphorically of security and safety (Isa 26:1; 60:18; Re 21:12-20). (See Fence.)
