In ancient times, cities were protected from attack by a wall which surrounded the city. There were gates along the wall which provided a means of ingress and egress. Soldiers were usually stationed on the walls and near the entrances for security purposes. For example, the soldiers served as lookouts (Habakkuk 2:1) for enemy attacks in order to provide early warnings of enemy assault and watch for and detect spies attempting to enter the city.
