Outer ring of fortifications, usually earthworks. The underlying Hebrew term is literally, “encirclement,” and can be applied to moats and walls as well as earthworks (2 Samuel 20:15; Psalm 122:7; Lamentations 2:8 ). Because Jerusalem was ringed by steep valleys, only its north side had extensive ramparts.
