Rampart

Additional Links
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.
