Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חוֹמָה f. a wall, from the root חָמָה to surround, which see. Exodus 14:22, 29 Exodus 14:29; Deuteronomy 3:5, 28:52. Generally the wall of a town, Isaiah 22:10, 36:11, 12 Isaiah 36:12; Nehemiah 3:8, 33, etc.; rarely of other buildings, Lamentations 2:7. Metaph. used of a maiden, chaste and difficult of approach, Song of Solomon 8:9, 10.

Plur. חוֹמוֹת walls, Isaiah 26:1 Ps. 51:20, with pl. verb, Jeremiah 50:15 so also Jeremiah 1:18, “I make thee this day a fortified city … … and brazen walls,” although in the same phrase, Jeremiah 15:20, the singular is used.

From the pl. is formed the dual חֹמֹתַיִם double walls, the double series of walls with which Jerusalem was surrounded on the south; whence בֵּין הַחֹמֹתַיִם between the two walls (of Jerusalem), 2 Kings 25:4; Isaiah 22:11; Jeremiah 39:4. Comp. as to forms of this kind, Lehrg. § 125, 6, and as to the topography of the city, my Comment on Isaiah 22:9. [See also Robinson on the walls of Jerusalem, Palest. 1, 460.]
