Fences were constructions of unmortared stones, to protect gardens, vineyards, sheepfolds, etc. From various causes they were apt to bulge out and fall ( Psalm 62:3 ). In Psalm 80:12 , RSV (see Isaiah 5:5 ), the psalmist says, "Why hast thou broken down her fences?" Serpents delight to lurk in the crevices of such fences (Ecclesiastes 10:8; Compare Amos 5:19 ).
