Smith's Bible Dictionary


Only a few points need be noticed.

(1.) The practice common in Palestine of carrying foundations down to the solid rock, as in the case of the temple, with structures intended to be permanent (Luke 6:48).

(2.) A feature of some parts of Solomon's buildings, as described by Josephus, corresponds remarkably to the method adopted at Nineveh of incrusting or veneering a wall of brick or stone with slabs of a more costly material, as marble or alabaster.

(3.) Another use of walls in Palestine is to support mountain roads or terraces formed on the sides of hills for purposes of cultivation.

(4.) The "path of the vineyards," (Numbers 22:24) is a pathway through vineyards, with walls on each side.
