A tall edifice erected so watchmen could guard pastures, vineyards, and cities. Towers ranged from small one-room structures to entire fortresses. Archaeological remains confirm the wide usage of towers from the earliest times. Most were made of stones, although some wooden towers have been unearthed. The word is used figuratively of God's salvation in 2 Samuel 22:51 , indicating the strength of the Lord's action. For references in Jeremiah 6:27 , See Assayer .
