Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
2 Samuel 23:7 (a) We are informed by this type that many wicked men are so dangerous, so strong, and so resourceful in their evil that those who approach them need to be well guarded lest they be greatly injured. This is certainly true of many of our great underworld characters.
Job 10:11 (a) Because of Job's great troubles, trials and suffering, he wanted to die. He was not able to die, and so he describes the limitations of his body by this figure.
Job 19:8 (a) Job felt that his hope of escape could not be found. All his resources were gone, his friends failed him, his health had departed, and he was left alone. He describes these experiences as being a fence which held him to his ash pile.
Psalm 62:3 (a) There is some irony in this Scripture and some misery with it. David asks his enemies whether they regard him as a bowing wall or a tottering fence which they can easily destroy. He reminds them that this is not true, and that GOD will destroy them instead of they destroying him.
Isaiah 5:2 (a) This figure represents the protection that GOD gave to Israel when he brought them into the land of Canaan and put His fear upon the nations round about so that they could develop themselves into a mighty kingdom. Instead of appreciating this wonderful protection, they discarded His care, and became followers of the idolatry of the neighboring nations.
Jeremiah 15:20 (a) GOD assured Jeremiah that when he stood as a warning against Israel and reproved them for their sins, he would be fully protected and preserved by the GOD who sent him on this mission.
