Tower. Hebrew, Heder, about a mile to the east of Bethlehem, where the angels appeared to announce the birth of Christ. St. Helen built a temple there in honour of the angels. (Tirinus) Shepherds had such places to keep watch. (Calmet) There was a tower of this name near Jerusalem. (Micheas iv. 8; St. Jerome, q. His.)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
