Hedge

Additional Links
A boundary formed by a dense row of usually thorny shrubs. In ancient Palestine hedges served to protect vineyards from damage by animals or intruders (Psalm 80:12-13; Isaiah 5:5 ). To put a hedge around someone means to protect (Job 1:10 ). To hedge in means to hem in or obstruct (Job 3:23; Lamentations 3:7; Hosea 2:6 ).
