What does Solomon say about building walls between people?
In a previous post, King Solomon, Logic Reason of the Pelosi/Trump Wall Stalemate? Doug asked the above question?
It appears that King Solomon and numerous others had plenty of advice which referenced walls. Apparently, walls were found to be useful in ancient times for both practical and spiritual purposes in spite of the views of our elite hypocritical legislators who oppose the use of walls all around the USA borders, except their own residences or exclusive walled communities.
Ancient Verses About Walls
The strength of walls depends on the courage of those who guard them.
Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.
is like a city that broken down and without walls; into which the may go with pleasure, and which is exposed to the rapine and violence of everyone; and so, a man that has no command of himself and passions, but gives the reins to them, is exposed to the enemy of souls, Satan and is liable to every sin, snare and temptation. (Gils Bible Commentary)
For he said to Judah, “Let us build these cities and surround them with walls and towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him, and He has given us rest on every side.” So, they built and prospered.
He measured it on the four sides; it had a wall all around, the length five hundred and the width five hundred, to divide between the holy and the profane.
Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation we are in, that Jerusalem is desolate and its gates burned by fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem so that we will no longer be a reproach.”
Day and night, they go around her upon her walls, and iniquity and mischief are in her midst. down and its gates are burned with fire.”
You have broken down all his walls; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
The brick wall was 56 miles long, 300 feet high, 25 feet thick with another wall 75 feet behind the first wall, and the wall extended 35 feet below the ground

What’s My Point?
If interested read my Previous Post and Doug’s comments in the Source Links Below. Also, a post about 700,000 drug overdose deaths in the USA.
Is it wise or foolish to build a fence or wall because the difference with the past immigration into the USA was those immigrants were not eligible for social services in a Nation currently with a National Debt exceeding 21 trillion dollars? A Nation that currently allows one million legal immigrants to enter the USA, more than any other nations in the world.
Is it logical to try building fences or wall to attempt to solve this 33-year-old discussion which will pay for itself in a short span of time if it reduces illegal immigration and drugs into the USA?
Is it hypocritical to approve funding to pay to build walls in the Middle East but not the USA?
