Gardens

Mentioned in Scripture, of Eden (Genesis 2:8,9); Ahab's garden of herbs (1 Kings 21:2); the royal garden (2 Kings 21:18); the royal garden at Susa (Esther 1:5); the garden of Joseph of Arimathea (John 19:41); of Gethsemane (John 18:1).

The "king's garden" mentioned 2 Kings 25:4, Nehemiah 3:15, was near the Pool of Siloam.

Gardens were surrounded by hedges of thorns (Isaiah 5:5) or by walls of stone (Proverbs 24:31). "Watch-towers" or "lodges" were also built in them (Isaiah 1:8; Mark 12:1), in which their keepers sat. On account of their retirement they were frequently used as places for secret prayer and communion with God (Genesis 24:63; Matthew 26:30-36; John 1:48; 18:1,2). The dead were sometimes buried in gardens (Genesis 23:19,20; 2Kings 21:18,26; 1 Samuel 25:1; Mark 15:46; John 19:41). (See PARADISE .)
