Roof of your house (Deut 22:8-22:8)

“When you build a new house, you shall make a parapet for your roof. Otherwise, you might have bloodguilt on your house, if anyone should fall from it.”

You needed protection for your flat roof so that no one would fall off and die. The parapet was a latticed fence around the flat roof.
