    mentioned in Scripture, of Eden (Gen. 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, Neh. 3:15, was
    near the Pool of Siloam.
      Gardens were surrounded by hedges of thorns (Isa. 5:5) or by
    walls of stone (Prov. 24:31). "Watch-towers" or "lodges" were
    also built in them (Isa. 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 (Gen. 24:63;
    Matt. 26:30-36; John 1:48; 18:1, 2). The dead were sometimes
    buried in gardens (Gen. 23:19, 20; 2 Kings 21:18, 26; 1 Sam.
    25:1; Mark 15:46; John 19:41). (See PARADISE.)
