WATCH-TOUR

woch'-tou-er (mitspeh (Isaiah 21:8; 2 Chronicles 20:24); bachan (Isaiah 32:14 the Revised Version (British and American))):

In Isaiah 2:16 the words sekhiyoth ha-chemdah have puzzled the translators. the King James Version gives "pleasant pictures," the Revised Version (British and American) "pleasant imagery," while the Revised Version margin has "pleasant watchtowers." Guthe in Kautzsch's Bible translates Schaustucke, which practically agrees with the Revised Version (British and American).
