Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Salem
SALEM . 1 . A place mentioned only in Genesis 14:16 as the kingdom of the mysterious Melchizedek (wh. see). It is natural to identify it with Jerusalem (wh. see), especially since the Tell el-Amarna tablets show that Urusalîm existed as a name for that city even before the Israelite Immigration. But the only real links between ‘Salem’ and Jerusalem’ are two in number: (1) the mention of the ‘ King’s Vale ,’ where, apparently, Melchizedek met Abram, which seems to be the place where Absalom reared his memorial ( 2 Samuel 18:18 ): it would presumably be somewhere near Jerusalem, but, pace Josephus, this is not certain. (2) The allusion to Jerusalem by the name Salem in Psalms 76:2 . This poetical abbreviation, however, which occurs nowhere else, may have been suggested by Salem in the ancient record, just as was the name Moriah (wh. see), and the reference to Melchizedek in Psalms 110:4 . There is some similarity between the name of Melchizedek and that of the Jebusite king Adonizedek ( Joshua 10:1 ), but upon the whole the identification of Salem with Jerusalem is rather shadowy. Jerome records another tradition, connecting Salem with Salîm (Salumias) in the Jordan Valley, where there is a tell with the tomb of “Sheik Selîm.’ 2 . The Valley of Salem ( Jdt 4:4 ), possibly the Jordan Valley, or a part of it. 3 , The LXX [Note: Septuagint.] reads Salem for Shiloh in Jeremiah 41:5 . This must be a Salem near Shechem, if this reading is to be followed. There is a place called Salîm , east of Nâblus.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Salem
There are various places called by this name. The first we meet with in Scripture is where Melchizedek is said to be king of Salem. (Genesis 14:18) Jerusalem and Salem in Scripture are one. In Salem, saith the Psalmist, speaking of JEHOVAH, is his tabernacle, and his dwelling in Zion. (Psalms 76:2) There was a Shalem also in the country of the Shechemites, were Jacob in his travels came. (Genesis 33:18) And it is more than probable that the Salim where John baptised was a distinct place known by this name. The name itself is Shalam, peace. Hence when Gideon was visited by the angel under the oak at Ophrah, at the close of the interview he built an altar unto the Lord, and called it Jehovah Shalom—that is, as the margin of the Bible renders it, the Lord send peace. (Judges 6:24)

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Salem
("peace".) The oldest name, Jehus the next, Jerusalem ("seeing", or "the foundation of peace") the latest, of Jerusalem. The cities of the plain were probably S. of the Dead Sea; so Salem is Jerusalem, and "the king's dale" the valley of the Kedron. The theory of their being N. of the Dead Sea is what necessitates its upholders to seek Salem far north of Jerusalem (Genesis 14:17-18). But no king of Salem distinct from Jerusalem is mentioned among the kings conquered by Joshua. Moreover, Αdonizedek ("lord of righteousness") king of Jerusalem (Joshua 10:3) was plainly successor of Μelchizedek ("king of righteousness"), it was the common title of the Jebusite kings. Further, "the king's dale" (2 Samuel 18:18), identified in Genesis 14:17 with Shaveh, is placed by Josephus and by tradition (the targum of Onkelos) near Jerusalem (Hebrews 7:1-2). Lastly, Psalm 76 identifies Salem with Jerusalem.

Shulamite - ... But beside these considerations there is a great propriety in calling the church Shulamite, for Shulem or Salem is the same as JeruSalem; and this is the mother of the church, (Galatians 4:26) Hence Melchizedec is said to have been king of Salem, king of peace. (Hebrews 7:2) What a sweet thought! Our Jesus, our Melchizedec, is king of Salem, and all his people are in this sense "Shulamites;" for they are "fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God. Hence when the daughters of JeruSalem, smitten with a view of her loveliness in Christ, call upon her, it is to return, that they may look upon her beauty

Melchizedek - Described as king of Salem and priest of God Most High ( ‘El ‘Elyôn ), who met Abraham on his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer and his allies, refreshed him and his servants with bread and wine, blessed him, and received from him a tenth of the spoil he had taken ( Genesis 14:18-20 ). Salem has been variously identified: (1) with the Shalem of Genesis 33:18 (AV [Note: Authorized Version. of Scythopolis; and (3) with JeruSalem , which is called Salem in Psalms 76:2 . The last identification is much the most probable; for though it is implied in Joshua 15:8 ; Joshua 15:63 , Judges 19:10 that JeruSalem was called Jebus so long as it was inhabited by the Jebusites ( i. up to the time of David), the name JeruSalem really goes back to the 14th cent. 2), and further obtains some slight confirmation from the resemblance of the name of Melchizedek to that of Adonizedek, who was king of JeruSalem in the time of Joshua ( Joshua 10:3 ), the element zedek in each name being probably that of a Canaanite deity. At an earlier date persons belonging to other tribes than that of Levi were sometimes priests: David’s sons ( 2 Samuel 8:18 ); and Ira the Jairite ( 2 Samuel 20:26 ), who belonged to Manasseh ( Numbers 32:41 ); but the author of Psalms 110:1-7 , in seeking a type for the combination in the same person of both the regal and priestly offices, had to go outside the limits of Israel, and found what he wanted in the priest-king of Salem, who was all the more adapted for the purpose by reason of the deference paid to him by so illustrious a personage as Abraham. He explains Melchizedek’s name to mean ‘king of righteousness,’ and his title of ‘king of Salem’ to mean ‘king of peace’; and then, arguing from the silence of the record respecting his parentage, birth, and death, describes him as ‘without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God,’ and affirms him to have been greater than Abraham, since he blessed him (‘for without any dispute the less is blessed of the better’) and received from him (and through him from his unborn descendants the Levitical priests) a tithe of his spoils ( Hebrews 7:1-16 )
Jerusalem - It was originally called Salem, and was the capital of King Melchisedech (Genesis 14) in 2100 B. In the division of the Promised Land, JeruSalem was assigned to the tribe of Benjamin.

Salim - Mommert (aenon und Bethania die Taufstätten des Täufers, nebst einer Abhandlung über Salem die Königsstadt des Melchisedech, Leipzig), on which see G. Κοικυλίδες: ὁ ἐν Ἰορδάνῃ τόπος τῆς βαπτίσεως τοῦ Κυρίου καὶ τὸ μοναστήριον τοῦ ἁγίου Προδρόμου (JeruSalem, 1905); also Löhr, ‘Wie stellt sich die neuere Palästinaforschung zu den geographischen Angaben des Johannesevangeliums,’ Deutsch-Evangelische Blätter, Dec. ... When Silvia had finished JeruSalem, she wished to go ‘ad regionem Ausitidem’ to see ‘memoriam sancti Job. ’ It took her eight days (mansiones) from JeruSalem to Carneas: ‘in quo itinere iens vidi super ripam Jordanis fluminis vallem pulchram satis et amœnam, abundantem vineis et arboribus, quoniam aquae multae ibi erant et optimae satis. ’ She inquires after the place, and receives the answer: ‘haec est civitas regis Melchisedech, quae dicta est ante Salem, unde nunc corrupto sermone, Sedima appellatur ipse vicus
Moriah - In the same neighborhood He vouchsafed a vision to Abram (Genesis 14; Genesis 15:1) after Melchizedek had met him in the valley near Salem and Abram paid tithe of the spoils of Chedorlaomer. The proverb "in the Mount of Jehovah it (or He) shall be seen" probably originated in JeruSalem under Melchizedek. Evidently the threshing floor on Moriah was near the real Mount Zion, the city of David (on the eastern not the western half of JeruSalem)
Most High - In this chapter Melchizedek is described as ‘priest to the Most High God’ ( El Elyon ), and since in later times the Salem where he lived was generally identified with JeruSalem, the double function of priest and king ascribed to him caused him to be regarded by the Jews as a type of the ideal king, and by the Christians as the type of Christ. Hence the name of the God whom he worshipped ( El Elyon ), which may possibly, in the first instance, have had reference merely to the lofty situation of JeruSalem, became in later generations a mysterious and exalted title of Jahweh
Melchizedek - Melchizedek of Salem came out to pronounce a blessing on Abraham who was on his way back to Hebron after rescuing Lot from Kedorlaomer, king of the East (Genesis 14:18-24 )
Wine - ” Such “wine” was commonly drunk for refreshment: “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine …” (Gen. Once a year all Israel is to gather in JeruSalem
Sion - or ZION, MOUNT, a mount or hill on the south of Old JeruSalem or Salem, and higher than that on which the ancient city stood. On this account it is, that this hill is so frequently styled in the Psalms the "holy hill;" and, by way of excellence, is used in the poetical language of Scripture to denote the whole city of JeruSalem. Here David built a palace, and a city, called after him the city of David; and which subsequently formed a part of JeruSalem, enclosed within the same walls, although a great part of the hill is now left without them; while, on the contrary, Calvary, which is supposed to have stood formerly without the walls, is now enclosed within them, the city having drawn itself round about this sacred mount. Chateaubriand, "is of a yellowish colour, and barren appearance; open in form of a crescent, toward JeruSalem; and is about as high as Montmartre at Paris, but rounder at the top. To the north, the wall of JeruSalem, which passes over the top of Sion, intercepts the view of the city, the site of which gradually slopes toward the Valley of Jehoshaphat. ‘Therefore shall Zion for your sakes be ploughed as a field, and JeruSalem shall become heaps,' Micah 3:12
Jerusalem - The name "JeruSalem" occurs 806 times in the Bible, 660 times in the Old Testament and 146 times in the New Testament; additional references to the city occur as synonyms. ... JeruSalem was established as a Canaanite city by the Chalcolithic period (ca. ... The archaeological investigation of JeruSalem is hampered by continued occupation; thus, even though no evidence exists for the sanctity of the site in Canaanite thought, human nature supports the assumption that the city had a religious center. The name consists of two elements: yrw and Salem [ ]. yrw may signify "foundation" or "city, " while Salem [ ] is the name of a deity. ... JeruSalem in the Old Testament. Salem . The first occurrence of JeruSalem is in Joshua 10:1 , but an allusion to JeruSalem appears in Genesis 14:18 with the reference to Melchizedek, king of Salem. Poetic parallel construction in Psalm 76:2 ( Hebrews 76:3 ) equates Salem with Zion. Prophetically, Isaiah spoke of the Prince of Peace (Shalom) who would reign on David's throne (in JeruSalem), a reference full of messianic portent (Isaiah 9:6 ). At the time of the Israelite occupation of Canaan, JeruSalem was known as Jebus, a shortened expression for "City of the Jebusites. " References in Joshua, Judges, and 1Chronicles note that Jebus is another name for JeruSalem. His subsequent construction of a palace made JeruSalem a royal city. His decision to rule from JeruSalem elevated a city, poorly situated for either trade or military activity, to capital status. ... David transformed JeruSalem into the religious center of his kingdom by bringing into it the ark of the covenant (2 Samuel 6:1-19 ). Although David was not allowed to construct a temple, the arrival of the ark forever linked JeruSalem with the cult of Yahweh. Solomon, David's son, enhanced the religious dimension of the city by constructing the temple of the Lord, symbolizing the presence of Yahweh in JeruSalem and Israel. David began the process of establishing the royal and religious nature of JeruSalem, but it was Solomon who transformed the former Jebusite stronghold into a truly capital and national cultic center. The royal and covenantal functions of JeruSalem are linked in Psalm 2:6 , where God announces that "I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill. "... JeruSalem is imbued with an eternal nature in several passages in the Old Testament. This promise was extended to JeruSalem because of its function as the royal city. While both kingship and covenant were to be centered in JeruSalem forever (cf. ... The Bible is full of references to the tension confronting the prophets and people of JeruSalem over the "eternal" nature of the city and the conditions. Isaiah, for example, understood that the Lord would shield JeruSalem (31:5), but he was also aware that certain conditions did apply (1:19-20; 7:9b). The prophets knew that the destruction of the city was imminent, for the cult had become corrupt and JeruSalem, the home of the covenant, would have to pay the price. ... The idea that JeruSalem was inviolable persisted, however, no doubt strengthened in part by the deliverance of the city from the siege of Sennacherib (2 Kings 19:20-36 ). Nearly a century later, following the apostasy of Manasseh and the reforms of Josiah, Jehoiakim ascended the throne of David in JeruSalem. JeruSalem did not change and the doom of exile was the result. ... The Babylonian exile provided the environment for the transformation of JeruSalem, which lay desolate in ruins, into a spiritual symbol for the Jews. As important as JeruSalem had been as a royal center for the kingdom of Israel and, after Solomon's death, for the kingdom of Judah, through the ages its importance has been as "the city of the Great King, " the Lord (Psalm 48:2 ; Matthew 5:35 ). Upon the return of the Jews from the exile to the ruins of JeruSalem, they rebuilt the temple but not the palace. ... The name "Zion" is seldom used in historical passages, but it occurs frequently in poetic and prophetic compositions as a synonym for all JeruSalem. JeruSalem is called the "Daughter of Zion (Isaiah 1:8 ) and the "Virgin Daughter of Zion" (2 Kings 19:21 ). JeruSalem's inhabitants are called "sons of Zion" (Lamentations 4:2 ), the "women of Zion" (Isaiah 3:16 ), and the "elders of the Daughter of Zion" (Lamentations 2:10 ). ... A visitor to modern JeruSalem will be shown the western hill rather than the City of David as Mount Zion. The Chronicler, writing in the postexilic period, has connected the place of the offering of Isaac with not only JeruSalem but specifically with the Temple Mount. This connection enhanced the sanctity of JeruSalem and the Temple Mount and contributed to the basis for the Islamic name for the city, El-Quds, "The Holy (City). ... The connection of JeruSalem with the sacred mountain of Yahweh is implicit in many of the references to mountain (Heb. Psalm 48:3 ( Hebrews 48:2 ), refers to JeruSalem as "the utmost heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King. The word of the Lord will go out from JeruSalem; nations will convert weapons into agricultural implements and men will not learn war anymore. Then JeruSalem shall become the city of peace indeed. ... Postexilic JeruSalem . The restoration of the Jewish people to JeruSalem was decreed by the Persian ruler Cyrus following his conquest of Babylon in 539 b. With this, the cult of Yahweh was fully reestablished in JeruSalem. ... JeruSalem in the New Testament . New Testament JeruSalem is Herodian JeruSalem, a city four centuries beyond the time of Ezra-Nehemiah. In those four hundred years, JeruSalem witnessed the demise of the Persian Empire and the domination of the Greeks. Under the Ptolemaic dynasty of Egypt, the attractive influence of Greek culture affected JeruSalem and its people, weakening religious devotion and practices particularly among the priestly ruling elite (cf. The Syrian Seleucid dynasty wrested control of JeruSalem from the Egyptians in 198 b. Finally, after Antiochus IV desecrated the temple by sacrificing a hog on the altar, devout Jews led by the Hasmonean family (Maccabees) rose in rebellion to reclaim JeruSalem in 164 b. , and he began the greatest building program JeruSalem had known. His reconstruction of the temple and the expansion of its platform made it the crown jewel of JeruSalem. At the same time, the Dead Sea Scroll community who deemed the JeruSalem temple despised by God, contemplated a New JeruSalem, completely rebuilt as a Holy City and with a new temple as its centerpiece (Temple Scroll). Herodian JeruSalem survived until the war with Rome in 66-70 a. It is in the context of JeruSalem before the destruction occurred that New Testament references are set. ... Jesus and JeruSalem . In the Synoptic Gospels JeruSalem is first mentioned in connection with the birth stories of Jesus: Zechariah's vision in the temple (Luke 1:5-23 ), the visit of the Magi (Matthew 2:1-12 ), and the presentation of the infant Jesus (Luke 2:22-38 ). Luke records the visit of Jesus to the temple at age twelve (2:41-50), and in fact New Testament references to JeruSalem are predominantly in Luke-Acts. Further, Luke records the "travel account" (9:51-19:27) in which Jesus sets his face toward JeruSalem and the inevitable events that were to take place there for, as Jesus observed, "surely no prophet can die outside JeruSalem!" (13:33). JeruSalem and the temple symbolized the covenant between God and his people, but the covenant relationship was askew. Luke records Jesus' tears and sorrow over JeruSalem and his prophecy of its destruction (19:41-44). The arrival of Jesus in JeruSalem on Palm Sunday, described in Luke 19 , was perceived as a royal procession by followers and adversaries alike. Although the fulfillment of this role through his death upon the cross was to take place outside the city, JeruSalem provided the backdrop for his Passion. Luke records many of the activities of that last week: the Last Supper, the arraignment before the high priest, Peter's denial, the trial before Pilate all took place within JeruSalem. And some postresurrection appearances of Jesus took place in JeruSalem (24:33-49) where his disciples were to await the coming of the Holy Spirit (24:49). Luke's Gospel closes with the call of Jesus to preach in his name to all nations "beginning at JeruSalem" (24:49). ... Matthew recalls the sanctity of JeruSalem as the "holy city" (4:5), and Jesus refers to it as "the city of the Great King" (5:35). New Testament references to Zion mainly recall Old Testament passages; however, the heavenly JeruSalem is identified as Zion in Hebrews 12:22 and Revelation 14:1 . ... Mark's references to JeruSalem are set mainly in the Passion narrative; however, he notes the "massive stones" of the temple (13:1). All three Synoptic Gospels record the splitting of the curtain in the JeruSalem temple during the crucifixion. ... The Synoptics are largely silent concerning any visits by Jesus to JeruSalem between childhood and his last week, but the Gospel of John supplements the record in this respect. ... Paul and JeruSalem . Acts 1:4 notes that the apostles were to wait for the promised gift of the Father in JeruSalem, and the gospel began to be preached there (chap. In JeruSalem Stephen delineated the differences between Christianity and mainstream Judaism. In JeruSalem Paul received his commission to preach to the Gentiles (22:17-21). Paul expected Gentile Christians to identify with JeruSalem and to develop a sense of kinship with the JeruSalem church. He actively encouraged outlying churches to send support to the "poor among the saints at JeruSalem" ( Romans 15:26 ). ... The Heavenly JeruSalem . Further, this was a heavenly JeruSalem "Mount Zion, … the city of the living God" (12:22). The eschatological view of JeruSalem that developed among Christians, aside from that of Judaism (cf. Isaiah 60:14 ), looked forward to the fulfillment of the promise of the kingdom in the establishment of a New JeruSalem that would come "down out of heaven from God" (Revelation 21:2 ). This city is described in contrast to the city allegorically called Sodom and Egypt, that is, the earthly JeruSalem, "where also their Lord was crucified" (Revelation 11:8 ). ... The Bible begins with a bucolic setting in the Garden of Eden; it closes on an urban scene, and that city is the New JeruSalem. For Christians, the identification of earthly JeruSalem as the dwelling place of God, which figures so frequently in the Old Testament, has been transformed into a heavenly JeruSalem, the true sanctuary of the Lord (cf. Nevertheless, Christians have always been drawn to the earthly JeruSalem, as have Jews and Muslims, for it has retained through the centuries its role as the center of the three monotheistic religions.

Solomon - (ssahl' oh mahn) Personal name whose meaning is variously interpreted as “his peace,” “(God) is peace,” “Salem (a god),” “intact,” or “his replacement. Solomon fortified a number of cities that helped provide protection to JeruSalem, built “store-cities” for stockpiling the materials required in his kingdom, and established military bases for contingents of charioteers (1 Kings 9:15-19 ). The Temple complex in JeruSalem was composed of several buildings including Solomon's palace, the “house of the forest of Lebanon,” the “hall or porch of pillars,” the “hall or porch of the throne,” and a palace for one of his wives, the daughter of the pharaoh of Egypt (1 Kings 7:1 ). He apparently allowed his wives to worship their native gods and even had altars to these gods constructed in JeruSalem (1 Kings 11:7-8 )
High - The emphasis here is on divine supremacy rather than divine exclusiveness: “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God” [el ‘elyon] (Gen
Jerusalem - The name “JeruSalem” has a long and interesting history. The earliest recorded name of JeruSalem is Urushalim and means “foundation of Shalem,” a Canaanite god of twilight. It is first mentioned in the Bible as Salem ( Genesis 14:18 ). Later the author of Hebrews (Genesis 7:2 ) interpreted “Salem” to mean “peace” because of its similarity to shalom . JeruSalem is also called Zion, Jebus, Mount Moriah, and the city of David. ... The physical characteristics of JeruSalem include mountains, springs, and valleys. JeruSalem is built on a mountain plateau and is surrounded by mountains. JeruSalem seems to have been inhabited by 3500 B. Written mention of JeruSalem may occur in the Ebla tablets (about 2500 B.

After the Hebrews entered Canaan under Joshua, the king of JeruSalem, Adoni-zedek fought them. He was defeated (Joshua 10:1 ), but JeruSalem was not taken. Later the men of Judah took JeruSalem and torched it (Judges 1:8 ; compare Judges 1:21 ). ... Soon after being crowned king over all the tribes of Israel, David led his private forces in the capture of JeruSalem (2 Samuel 5:1-10 ) and made it his capital, a happy choice since it lay on the border between the northern and southern tribes. The moving of the ark (2 Samuel 6:1 ) made JeruSalem the religious center of the nation. Other extensive building projects made JeruSalem a magnificent city. ... To the Temple in JeruSalem the tribes came three times a year, so that “every one of them in Zion appeareth before God” (Psalm 84:7 ). JeruSalem, the dwelling place of both the earthly (Psalm 132:1 ) and the divine king (Psalm 5:2 ; Psalm 24:7 ), was where Israel came to appreciate and celebrate the kingship of God (Psalm 47:1 ; Psalm 93:1 ; Psalm 96-99 ), one of the central ideas of the entire Bible. ... JeruSalem was threatened during the period of the divided kingdom. When the kingdom of Israel split at the death of Solomon, JeruSalem continued to be the capital of the Southern Kingdom. ” The Assyrians would have destroyed JeruSalem had it not been miraculously spared (2 Kings 19:35 ). This deliverance, coupled with the covenant with the house of David, led some to the mistaken belief that JeruSalem could never be destroyed (Jeremiah 7:1-15 ). Both Micah (Jeremiah 3:12 ) and Jeremiah (Jeremiah 7:14 ) prophesied the destruction of JeruSalem for her unfaithfulness to God's covenant. The prophets also spoke of JeruSalem's exaltation in the “latter days” (Isaiah 2:2-4 ). ” Isaiah 60:19 speaks of the time when the Lord will be for JeruSalem an everlasting light. ... The Babylonians conquered JeruSalem in 598 B.

Under the influence of Ezra and Nehemiah, JeruSalem again became the living center of the Jewish faith. Continued participation in the sacred traditions deepened the people's appreciation for JeruSalem, the “city of our God” (Psalm 48:1 ). ... The restoration of JeruSalem spoken of by the preexilic prophets had taken place (Jeremiah 29:10 ; Jeremiah 33:7-11 ), but only in part. The glorious vision of the exaltation of Zion (Micah 4:1-8 ) and the transformation of JeruSalem (Ezekiel 40-48 ) had not yet been fulfilled. Prophets like Zechariah painted new images concerning the future of JeruSalem (Zechariah 14:1 ). ... JeruSalem played an important role in apocalyptic circles of the intertestamental period. We read of a preexistent heavenly JeruSalem (Syriac Baruch 4:2 ) that will descend to earth at the end of the age (2 Esdras 10:27,2 Esdras 10:27,10:54 ; 2 Esdras 13:4-6 ), or, according to another conception, is the place in heaven where the righteous will eventually dwell (Slahyvonic Enoch 55:2).

From that time until the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948, the major role of JeruSalem in the Hebrew-Christian religion has been one of symbol, hope, and prophecy. ... JeruSalem has great theological significance. All four Gospels relate that the central event of the Christian faith—the crucifixion-resurrection of Jesus—took place in JeruSalem. The prophecy of the destruction of JeruSalem (Matthew 24:1 ; Mark 13:1 ; Luke 21:1 ), is mixed with prophecies concerning the coming of the Son of man at the end of the age when forsaken and desolated JeruSalem will welcome the returning Messiah (Matthew 23:39 ). ... Several New Testament writers emphasize JeruSalem. John told us more than any other Gospel writer about Jesus' visits to JeruSalem during His public ministry, but it was Luke who emphasized JeruSalem most. Luke's opening announcement of the birth of John took place in JeruSalem. On the mount of transfiguration He spoke with Moses and Elijah of His departure (exodus) which He was to accomplish at JeruSalem. All of Luke's resurrection appearances took place in or near JeruSalem, and the disciples were instructed to stay there until the Day of Pentecost. JeruSalem is the center of the missionary activity of the church, which must extend to the end of the earth (Acts 1:8 ). ... Paul, though sent out from Antioch, looked to JeruSalem as the center of the earthly church. He kept in contact with the JeruSalem church and brought them a significant offering towards the close of his ministry. He envisioned the “man of sin” who comes before the Day of the Lord as... appearing in JeruSalem (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 ). The present JeruSalem, however, still serves as the “mother” of those Jews in bondage to the law as contrasted to the “JeruSalem above” which is the mother of those persons who are set free in Christ (Galatians 4:24-31 ). The author of Hebrews described the heavenly JeruSalem on Mount Zion as the goal of the Christian pilgrimage (Hebrews 11:10 ; Hebrews 12:22 ). ... JeruSalem figures in the final vision of Revelation. In Revelation the earthly JeruSalem appears for the last time after the thousand-year reign of Christ when the deceived nations, led by the temporarily loosed Satan, come against the beloved city and are destroyed by fire from heaven (Revelation 20:7-9 ). Finally, John saw the new JeruSalem descending from heaven to the new earth
Priest, Christ as - The priestly activity of drawing near to God in sacrifice and prayer is introduced in the Old Testament through Abel the head of a family (Genesis 4:4 ), Melchizedek the king of Salem and priest of God Most High (Genesis 14:18 ), Jethro the priest of Midian (Exodus 18:1 ), Aaron (Exodus 28:1 ), and the Levites (Exodus 32:28-29 ; Numbers 1:47-53 ). ... During the week of his passion, Jesus wept over the city of JeruSalem and prophesied her future destruction (Luke 19:41-44 ; cf. Abraham recognized the greatness of Melchizedek, who served in the dual offices of king of Salem and priest of God Most High, offered his tithe, and received a blessing (Genesis 14:18-20 ; cf
Jerusalem - Called also Salem, Ariel, Jebus, the "city of God," the "holy city;" by the modern Arabs el-Khuds, meaning "the holy;" once "the city of Judah" (2 Chronicles 25:28 ). " JeruSalem is a "mountain city enthroned on a mountain fastness" (Compare Psalm 68:15,16 ; 87:1 ; 125:2 ; 76:1,2 ; 122:3 ). It is first mentioned in Scripture under the name Salem (Genesis 14:18 ; Compare Psalm 76:2 ). When first mentioned under the name JeruSalem, Adonizedek was its king (Joshua 10:1 ). JeruSalem now became the capital of the kingdom. ... After the disruption of the kingdom on the accession to the throne of Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, JeruSalem became the capital of the kingdom of the two tribes. ... But the streets and walls of JeruSalem were again to be built, in troublous times (Daniel 9:16,19,25 ), after a captivity of seventy years. At the close of this period they fell under the rule of Herod and of members of his family, but practically under Rome, till the time of the destruction of JeruSalem, A. ... The modern JeruSalem by-and-by began to be built over the immense beds of rubbish resulting from the overthrow of the ancient city; and whilst it occupies certainly the same site, there are no evidences that even the lines of its streets are now what they were in the ancient city. 131 the Jews who still lingered about JeruSalem quietly submitted to the Roman sway. 326 Helena, mother of the emperor Constantine, made a pilgrimage to JeruSalem with the view of discovering the places mentioned in the life of our Lord. 614 the Persians, after defeating the Roman forces of the emperor Heraclius, took JeruSalem by storm, and retained it till A. 1099 the crusader Godfrey of Bouillon took the city from the Moslems with great slaughter, and was elected king of JeruSalem. From that time to the present day, with few intervals, JeruSalem has remained in the hands of the Moslems. ... In the year 1850 the Greek and Latin monks residing in JeruSalem had a fierce dispute about the guardianship of what are called the "holy places. ... Modern JeruSalem "lies near the summit of a broad mountain-ridge, which extends without interruption from the plain of Esdraelon to a line drawn between the southern end of the Dead Sea and the southeastern corner of the Mediterranean. ... "JeruSalem is a city of contrasts, and differs widely from Damascus, not merely because it is a stone town in mountains, whilst the latter is a mud city in a plain, but because while in Damascus Moslem religion and Oriental custom are unmixed with any foreign element, in JeruSalem every form of religion, every nationality of East and West, is represented at one time. " ... JeruSalem is first mentioned under that name in the Book of Joshua, and the Tell-el-Amarna collection of tablets includes six letters from its Amorite king to Egypt, recording the attack of the Abiri about B. The name Zion (or Sion) appears to have been, like Ariel ("the hearth of God"), a poetical term for JeruSalem, but in the Greek age was more specially used of the Temple hill. ... JeruSalem is now a town of some 50,000 inhabitants, with ancient mediaeval walls, partly on the old lines, but extending less far to the south
Tithes - We have nothing more ancient concerning tithes, than what we find in Genesis 14:20 , that Abraham gave tithes to Melchisedec, king of Salem, at his return from his expedition against Chedorlaomer, and the four kings in confederacy with him. They brought the tithes to the Levites in the city of JeruSalem, as appears from Josephus and Tob_1:6 . Of those nine parts that remained to the proprietors, after the tithe was paid to the Levites, they took still another tenth part, which was either sent to JeruSalem in kind, or, if it was too far, they sent the value in money; adding to it a fifth from the whole as the rabbins inform us. So, properly speaking, there were only two sorts of tithes, that which was given to the Levites and priests, and that which was applied to making feasts of charity, either in the temple of JeruSalem, or in other cities. At this day, the Jews no longer pay any tithe; at least they do not think themselves obliged to do it, except it be those who are settled in the territory of JeruSalem, and the ancient Judea
Jerusalem - The holy city: and so generally known was JeruSalem by this name, that the eastern part of the world never called it by any other name than the Elkuds, the holy. )... JeruSalem was anciently Jehus. Joshua first conquered it, (see Joshua 18:28) but the Jebusites were not totally drawn out of it until the days of David, (See 2 Samuel 5:5) The history of JeruSalem is truly interesting; but it would form more the subject of a volume than a short notice in a work of this kind, to enter into particulars. If we were to go back to the first account of it in Scripture, we must being with Genesis 14where we find Melchisedeck king of it, and then called Salem. No wonder, therefore, that JeruSalem hath been called the holy city, and is rendered so dear to all his redeemed. Hence JeruSalem, now in the present moment, means the church on earth, and is prayed for under that name. (Isaiah 62:1; Psalms 137:5-6) And hence the church in heaven is called the New JeruSalem. ) JeruSalem is said to be the centre of the earth; and the prophet Ezekiel, (Ezekiel 38:11-12) describing the insolent threats of Gog concerning his proposed destruction of JeruSalem, calls the people of it, those who dwell in the midst of the land, or as the margin of the Bible renders it, in the navel of the earth. ... The tears of Jesus over JeruSalem having been misconstrued, and as such made use of to support an opinion foreign to the general scope of the gospel, I cannot dismiss the article without offering a short observation upon it. ... We are told by the Evangelists, that "when Jesus was come near to JeruSalem, he beheld the city, and wept over it, saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace: but now they are hid from thine eyes. " Whoever attends with any degree of diligence to those several expressions of our Lord, will plainly discover that all that is here spoken refers to the destruction of JeruSalem as a city and nation, and wholly in temporal things. It hath nothing to do with grace, as some have improperly concluded, as if JeruSalem had outlived her day of grace, and, therefore, could find no mercy from the Lord; and all sinners, in like manner, might outlive their day also. The Lord is speaking wholly of JeruSalem in temporal things. It is JeruSalem's day, not the Lord's day of grace. " (John 17:12) So that this holds good respecting the gift of grace to all generations of the church; but in temporals, like JeruSalem, the Lord's judgments may, and the Lord's judgments will follow and overthrow nations, where the gospel is preached and rejected
Jerusalem - Salem is the oldest form (Psalms 76:2; Hebrews 7:2; Genesis 14:18). Jebus, the next form, JeruSalem the more modern name. Melchi-zedek ("king of righteousness") corresponds to Adoni-zedek," lord of righteousness," king of JeruSalem (Joshua 10:1), the name being a hereditary title of the kings of JeruSalem which is "the city of righteousness" (Isaiah 1:21-26). Psalm 110 connects Melchizedek with Zion, as other passages do with Salem. The king of Salem met Abram after his return from the slaughter of the kings, therefore near home (Hebron, to which JeruSalem was near). ... "The valley of Shaveh, the king's dale" (Genesis 14:17; 2 Samuel 18:18), was the valley of Kedron, and the king of Sodom had no improbable distance to go from Sodom in meeting him here (two furlongs from JerSalem: Josephus, Ant. JeruSalem did not become the nation's capital or even possession until David's time, the seat of government and of the religious worship having been previously in the N. JeruSalem lies on the ridge of the backbone of hills stretching from the plain of Jezreel to the desert. The two royal tribes met in JeruSalem David showed his sense of the importance of the alliance with Saul of Benjamin by making Michal's restoration the condition of his league with Abner (2 Samuel 3:13). below JeruSalem. "JeruSalem the defensed" (Ezekiel 21:20), yet doomed to be "the city of confusion," a second Babel (confusion), by apostasy losing the order of truth and holiness, so doomed to the disorder of destruction like Babylon, its prototype in evil (Isaiah 24:10; Jeremiah 4:23). The JeruSalem range is part of the steep western wall of the valley of the Jordan and the Dead Sea. outlying hills of Olivet, namely, Viri Galilaei, Scopus, and mount of Offence, bend somewhat toward the city, as if "standing round about JeruSalem. ridge to JeruSalem. This was the road which armies took in approaching the city, and it is still the one for heavy baggage, though a shorter and steeper road through Amwas and the great wady is generally taken by travelers from Jaffa to JeruSalem. ... JeruSalem is honeycombed with natural and excavated caverns and cisterns for water, for burial, and for quarries. ... History: The first mention of JeruSalem is as the Salem of Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18). In 1 Samuel 17:54 it is said David brought Goliath's head to JeruSalem; either to the lower city, which was already in the Israelites' hands, or finally, as a trophy, to the city of David when it fell into his hands. of JeruSalem, a southern part of Olivet, he built shrines for his foreign wives' idols; it is hence called "the mount of offence," 1 Kings 11:7; 2 Kings 23:13, "the mount of corruption. "Solomon made silver in JeruSalem (common) as stones, and cedars as sycamore trees" (1 Kings 10:27; 2 Chronicles 9:27; Ecclesiastes 2:9). At the disruption under Rehoboam the priests, Levites, and better disposed of the people flocked from the northern kingdom to Judah and JeruSalem which the king fortified (2 Chronicles 11:5-17). So Shishak, Jeroboam's ally, came up against JeruSalem. Asa, after overthrowing the Ethiopian Zerah who thought to spoil JeruSalem as Shishak did, brought in the sacred offerings which his father Abijah had dedicated from the war with Jeroboam (2 Chronicles 13:16-20), and which he himself had dedicated from the Ethiopian spoil, into the house of the Lord, silver, gold, and vessels (1 Kings 15:15; 2 Chronicles 14:12-13). ... The fourth siege of JeruSalem was in the reign of Jehoram, Jehoshaphat's son. Keil denies the certainty of JeruSalem having been taken this time, as "Judah" does not necessarily include JeruSalem which is generally distinctly mentioned; "the king's house" is not necessarily the palace, what may be meant is all whatever substance of the king's house (family) was found. Then Hazael (by God's appointment) set his face to go up to JeruSalem, and Joash bought him off only at the sacrifice of all the treasures in the temple and palace. of JeruSalem. Taking Amaziah prisoner he brought him to JeruSalem and there broke down the wall from the Ephraim or Benjamin gate to the corner gate (N. Under Ahaz JeruSalem was besieged by Rezin of Syria and Pekah of Israel (2 Kings 16:5-6). On his return, finding JeruSalem still not taken, he ravaged Judea, and leaving Pekah at JeruSalem he carried a number of captives to Damascus. JeruSalem was uninjured
Tithe, Tithing - ... Tithing first appeared in the Bible when Abraham gave one-tenth of the spoils of war to Melchizedek, the priest-king of Salem (Genesis 14:18-20 )
Memphis - , he thinks, built the great pyramid under God's guidance, and the cities Salem, of which Melchizedek was shepherd priestking, and Damascus
Melchizedek - The original meaning was probably ‘My king is Zedek’; but the name is interpreted ideally in Hebrews 7:2, where it is taken to mean ‘king of righteousness,’ and at the same time, because of Melchizedek’s rule over Salem (= ‘peace’), ‘king of peace. Another tradition distinguishes Shem from Melchizedek, but associates them in the work of transferring the body of Adam to JeruSalem
Aenon - 91, 99, 25) place aenon in the Jordan Valley, 8 miles south of Scythopolis (Beisân), ‘juxta Salem et Jordanem. More probable as a Judaean site for aenon is Wady Fârʿah, a secluded valley with copious springs about 6 miles north-east of JeruSalem (quite different, of course, from the great Wady Fârʿah of Samaria). Barclay says that ‘of all the fountains in the neighbourhood of JeruSalem, the most copious and interesting by far are those that burst forth within a short distance of each other in Wady Fârʿah. ’ He quotes the following description from The History of the JeruSalem Mission:—... ‘From the brow at Wady Fârʿah we descended with some difficulty into that “Valley of Delight,”—for such is the literal signification of its name,—and truly I have seen nothing so delightful in the way of natural scenery, nor inviting in point of resources, etc
a'Braham - The captives and plunder were all recovered, and Abram was greeted on his return by the king of Sodom, and by Melchizedek king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who mysteriously appears upon the scene to bless the patriarch and receive from him a tenth of the spoil
Abraham - He refused to take even a thread of the spoil from the king of Sodom: he would not be made rich from such a source; but he was blessed by Melchisedec, king of Salem, the priest of the most high God, who brought forth bread and wine: to whom Abraham gave tenths of all
Jerusalem - JERUSalem... I. JeruSalem is the chief town of Palestine, situated in 31° 46′ 45″ N. direction; it then turns southward and deepens rapidly, separating the JeruSalem plateau from the ridge of the Mount of Olives on the east; finally, it meanders through the wild mountains of the Judæan desert, and finds its exit on the W. By these valleys the site of JeruSalem is divided into four quarters, each on its own hill. The site of JeruSalem is not well provided with water . Probably the oldest known conduit is a channel hewn in the rock, entering JeruSalem from the north. The origin of the city of JeruSalem is lost in obscurity, and probably, owing to the difficulties in the way of excavation, must continue to be matter of speculation. The first reference that may possibly be connected with the city is the incident of the mysterious ‘Melchizedek, king of Salem’ ( Genesis 14:18 ), who has been the centre of much futile speculation, due to a large extent to misunderstanding of the symbolic use of his name by the authors of Psalms 110:1-7 ( Psalms 110:4 ) and Hebrews (chs. It is not even certain that the ‘ Salem ’ over which this contemporary of Hammurabi ruled is to be identified with JeruSalem (see Salem); there is no other ancient authority for this name being applied to the city. The chief importance of the Tell el-Amarna correspondence, so far as JeruSalem is concerned, is the demonstration of the true antiquity of the name ‘JeruSalem. ’... Where was the JeruSalem of ‘Abd-khiba situated? This question, which is bound up with the authenticity or otherwise of the traditional Zion , and affects such important topographical and archæological questions as the site of David’s tomb, is one of the most hotly contested of all the many problems of the kind which have to be considered by students of JeruSalem. But the majority of modern scholars are now coming to an agreement that the pre-Davidic JeruSalem was situated on the hill known as Ophel , the south-eastern of the four hills above enumerated, in the space intercepted between the Tyropœon and Kidron valleys. This is the hill under which is the only natural source of water in the whole area of JeruSalem the ‘ Virgin’s Fountain ,’ an intermittent spring of brackish water in the Kidron Valley and upon which is the principal accumulation of ancient débris , with ancient pottery fragments strewn over the surface. Whether his be the ‘land of Moriah ’ of Genesis 22:2 is doubtful: it has been suggested that the name is here a copyist’s error for ‘land of Midian,’ which would be a more natural place for Jahweh worship in the days of Abraham than would the high place of the guardian numen of JeruSalem. Until the discovery of the Tell el-Amarna correspondence it was supposed that Jebus was the primitive name of the city, changed on the Israelite conquest to JeruSalem; but this has been rendered untenable, and it now seems probable that the name of Jebus is a mere derivative, of no authority, from the ethnic Jebusites , the meaning and etymology of which are still to seek. ... At the Israelite immigration the king of JeruSalem was Adoni-zedek, who headed a coalition against Gibeon for having made terms with Joshua. The statement that Judah burnt JeruSalem ( Judges 1:8 ) is generally rejected as an interpolation; it remained a Jebusite city ( Judges 1:21 ; Judges 19:11 ) until its conquest by David. During the revolt of the fellahîn against Ibrahim Pasha in 1834, JeruSalem, once more besieged, was entered through a drain in the same way. ’ Besides these works, whereby JeruSalem received a glory it had never possessed before, Solomon built Millo, whatever that may have been ( 1 Kings 9:24 ), and the wall of JeruSalem ( 1 Kings 9:15 ), and ‘closed up the breach of the city of David’ ( 1 Kings 11:27 ), the latter probably referring to an extension of the area of the city which involved the pulling down and rebuilding elsewhere of a section of the city walls. In the fifth year of Rehoboam, JeruSalem sustained the first siege it had suffered after David’s conquest, being beleaguered by Shishak, king of Egypt ( 1 Kings 14:25 ), who took away the treasures of the Temple and of the royal house. Soon afterwards, however, Jehoash of Israel came down upon JeruSalem, breached the wall, and looted the royal and sacred treasuries ( 2 Kings 14:14 ). Thanks probably to these precautions, an attack on JeruSalem by the kings of Syria and of Israel, in the next reign (Ahaz’s), proved abortive ( 2 Kings 16:5 ). Hezekiah still further prepared JeruSalem for the struggle which he foresaw from the advancing power of Assyria, and to him, as is generally believed, is due the engineering work now famous as the Siloam Tunnel , whereby water was conducted from the spring in the Kidron Valley outside the walls to the reservoir at the bottom of the Tyropœon inside them. The fall of JeruSalem could not be long delayed. ... The aspect and area of the JeruSalem captured by Nebuchadnezzar must have been very different from that conquered about 420 years before by David. To the south a much larger area was built on than is included in modern JeruSalem: the ancient wall has been traced to the verge of the Wady er-Rabâbi . ... The Book of Nehemiah contains the fullest account that we have of the fortifications of JeruSalem , and it has been the most carefully studied of any source of information on the subject. Mitchell on the ‘Wall of JeruSalem according to Nehemiah’ (in the JBL [Note: BL Journ. The Beautiful-gate , of Acts 3:10 was probably the same as the Nicanor-gate, between the Women’s and the Priests’ Court: it is alluded to in the epitaph of the donor, Nicanor, recently-discovered at JeruSalem. Alexander’s death was the signal for the long and complicated struggle between the Seleucids and the Ptolemys, between whom JeruSalem passed more than once. The desecration of the Temple, and the attempt to force the Jews to sacrifice to pagan deities ( 1M Malachi 1:2 ), led to the rebellion headed by the Maccabæan family, wherein, after many vicissitudes, the short-lived Hasmonæan dynasty was established at JeruSalem. Pompey besieged JeruSalem, and profaned the Temple, which was later pillaged by Crassus; and in b. After a brief exile, owing to the usurpation of the Hasmonæan Antigonus, he returned, and commenced to rebuild JeruSalem on a scale of grandeur such as had never been known since Solomon. From the time of Christ to the destruction of JeruSalem . The events in the life of Christ, in so far as they affect JeruSalem, are the only details of interest known to us for the years succeeding the death of Herod in b. These we need not dwell upon here, but a word may fitly be spoken regarding the central problem of JeruSalem topography, the site of the Holy Sepulchre . The authenticity of the traditional site falls at once, if it lie inside the north wall of JeruSalem as it was in Christ’s time, for Christ suffered and was buried without the walls. The identification of the site cannot with certainty be traced back earlier than Helena; and, though she visited JeruSalem as early as 326, yet it must not be forgotten that in endeavouring then to find the tomb of Christ, without documents to guide her, she was in as hopeless a position as a man who under similiar circumstances should at the present year endeavour to find the tomb of Shakespeare, if that happened to be unknown. Indeed, Helena was even worse off than the hypothetical investigator, for the population, and presumably the tradition, have been continuous in Stratford-on-Avon, which certainly was not the case with JeruSalem from a. ) built an outer wall, the line of which is not known with certainty, on the north side of the city, and under his rule JeruSalem grew and prospered. In 66 the Jews endeavoured to revolt against the Roman yoke, and brought on themselves the final destruction which was involved in the great siege and fall of JeruSalem in a. From the destruction of JeruSalem to the Arab conquest . In 450 the Empress Eudocia retired to JeruSalem and repaired the walls; she built a church over the Pool of Siloam, which was discovered by excavation some years ago. In 637 Omar conquered JeruSalem after a four months’ siege. The country was happily rid of the degraded and degrading Latin kingdom in 1187, when JeruSalem fell to Saladin
Abraham - Returning by way of Salem, i. , JeruSalem, the king of that place, Melchizedek, came forth to meet them with refreshments
Genesis, the Book of - Again, in Genesis 14 Melchizedek, the king-priest of the Canaanite Salem, worships EL ELION, "God must high," and Abram identifies Him with JEHOVAH the Hebrew' God of the covenant, "I have lift up my hand to JEHOVAH, EL ELION, possessor of heaven and earth
Fulfillment - The prayer of Daniel for the restoration of the devastated JeruSalem temple was answered by the startling revelation of seventy weeks that would involve the Messiah (9:1-27). In the same manner Melchizedek, king of Salem, was a type of the eternal priesthood of Christ (Hebrews 7:1-10 ). For them, the Messiah would appear as God's champion to expel the hated Roman occupation army and introduce the age when powerful nations would do homage to the Lord in JeruSalem (Zechariah 8:20-23 )
Patriarchs, the - When Lot was taken prisoner by a number of local rulers, Abram mustered a rescue party and was recognized for his leadership (Genesis 14:14-19 ) by the kings of Sodom and Salem
Terah - His childhood spent in ancient Chaldea; his very crossing of the flood Euphrates on such an errand; the snows of Lebanon; the oaks of Bashan; Damascus; Salem; the Nile; the pyramids; the great temples; the famous schools and schoolmasters of Egypt, at whose feet Moses was to sit in after days,-all that, and much more that we neither know nor can imagine. What were Babylon, and Nineveh, and Damascus, and Salem, and all Egypt, to this western world and to this nineteenth century after Christ! What were all the science of Chaldea, and all the lore of Egypt, but the merest rudiments and first elements of that splendid sunshine of all manner of truth and opportunity which floods around us from our youth up! And as we are led on from school to school; and from author to author; and from preacher to preacher; and from one stage of intellectual and spiritual migration and growth to another; to what a stature, to what a breadth, and to what a height of faith, and knowledge, and love, and all manner of grace and truth may we not attain
Jerusalem - ' Its history has, alas, been anything but that of peace; but Haggai 2:9 remains to be fulfilled: "in this place will I give peace," doubtless referring to the meaning of 'JeruSalem. It is apparently symbolically called Salem,'peace,' in Psalm 76:2 ;* and ARIEL, 'the lion of God,' in Isaiah 29:1,2,7 ; in Isaiah 52:1 'the holy city,' as it is also in Matthew 4:5 ; Matthew 27:53 . The temple being built there, and Mount Zion forming a part of the city, made JeruSalem typical of the place of blessing on earth, as it certainly will be in a future day, when Israel is restored. ... * On the TELLAMARNA TABLETS(see THE TELL AMARNA TABLETS under 'Egypt') JeruSalem occurs several times as u-ru-sa-lim , the probable signification of which is 'city of peace. '... JeruSalem was taken from the Jebusites and the city burnt, Judges 1:8 ; but the Jebusites were not all driven out, for some were found dwelling in a part of JeruSalem called the fort, when David began to reign over the whole of the tribes. This stronghold was taken, and JeruSalem became the royal city; but the great interest that attaches to it arises from its being the city of Jehovah's election on the one hand, and the place of Jehovah's temple, where mercy rejoiced over judgement. 606, when the first captivity took place, Jeremiah 25:11,12 ; Jeremiah 29:10 ), Cyrus made a declaration that God had charged him to build Him a house at JeruSalem, and the captives were allowed to return for the purpose. 614JeruSalem was taken and pillaged by the Persians. It has already sustained about thirty sieges, and although in the hands of the Jews now its desolations are not yet over!... The beautiful situation of JeruSalem is noticed in scripture; it stands about 2593 feet above the sea, and the mountains round about it are spoken of as its security. The Mount of Olives is on the east, from whence the best view of JeruSalem is to be had. Any one accustomed to the area of modern cities is struck with the small size of JeruSalem. ... Josephus speaks of JeruSalem being built upon two hills with a valley between, called the TYROPOEON VALLEY. ... As to the future of JeruSalem, scripture teaches that a portion of the Jews will return in unbelief (and indeed many have now returned), occupy JeruSalem, rebuild the temple, and have a political existence. But this will not be the final destiny of JeruSalem. "Thus saith the Lord of hosts: There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of JeruSalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age
Priest, Priesthood - ... The first occurrence of "priest" in the Old Testament is the reference to the pre-Israelite "Melchizedek king of Salem priest of God Most High" (Genesis 14:18 ). ... Second Kings 23:4-20 lists five categories of priests that existed in ancient Israel before Josiah's reformation, and arranges them according to their proximity to the JeruSalem temple: (1) the high priest (v. 4), (3) the idolatrous priests in the cities of Judah and in the area surrounding JeruSalem (v. According to this passage, a significant feature of Josiah's religious reformation was his eradication of all priests (and their cultic accouterments) except those who functioned legitimately within JeruSalem temple
Job - Melchizedec, king of Salem, was a priest of the primitive order, Genesis 14:18 ; such also was Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses, in the vicinity of Idumea, Exodus 18:12
Jerusalem - The most ancient name of the city was Salem, Genesis 14:18 Psalm 76:2 ; and it afterwards was called Jebus, as belonging to the Jebusites, Judges 19:10,11 . , JeruSalem fell under the tyranny of Antiochus Epiphanes, who razed its walls, set up an image of Jupiter in the temple, and used every means to force the people into idolatry. By his rejection and crucifixion JeruSalem filled up the cup of her guilt; the Jewish nation perished from off the land of their fathers, and the city and temple were taken by Titus and totally destroyed, A. Of all the structures of JeruSalem, only three towers and a part of the western wall were left standing. From this period the name Aelia became so common, that the name JeruSalem was preserved only among the Jews and better-informed Christians. ... The subsequent history of JeruSalem may be told in a few words. In 613, it was taken by Chosroes king of Persia, who slew, it is said, 90,000 men, and demolished, to the utmost of his power, whatever the Christians had venerated: in 627, Heraclius defeated Chosroes, and JeruSalem was recovered by the Greeks. Selim, the Turkish sultan, reduced Egypt and Syria, including JeruSalem, in 1517, and his son Solyman built or reconstructed the present walls in 1534. ... JeruSalem is situated on the central tableland of Judea, about 2,400 feet above the Mediterranean. On the east of JeruSalem, and stretching from north to south, lies the Mount of Olives, divided from the city by the valley of the Kidron, and commanding a noble prospect of the city and surrounding county. In the rocks around JeruSalem, and chiefly in the sides of the valleys of the Kidron and Hinnom opposite the city, are many excavated tombs and caves. ... Of the WALLS of ancient JeruSalem, the most ancient that of David and Solomon, encircled the whole of Mount Zion, and was also continued around Moriah and Ophel. The depth of the valleys south and east of JeruSalem, rendered it comparatively easy to fortify and defend it on these sides. The precise course of the second wall may perhaps be ascertained by future excavations, but is now more disputed than any other point of the topography of JeruSalem. ... The preceding plan of Ancient JeruSalem exhibits the walls, gates, towers, and other prominent objects in and around the city, with as much accuracy as can be secured, now that it has borne the ravages of so many centuries, been nearly a score of times captured, and often razed to the ground. ... MODERN JERUSalem, called by the Arabs El-Kuds, the holy, occupies unquestionably the site of the JeruSalem of the Bible. Still farther north is the Latin convent, in the most westerly part of JeruSalem; and between it and the center of the city stands the church of the Holy Sepulchre, over the traditional scenes of the death and the resurrection of our Lord. ... The present population of JeruSalem may be about 12,000 souls, of whom about two-fifths are Mohammedans, and the remainder Jews and Christians in nearly equal numbers. JeruSalem is but the melancholy shadow of its former self. ... THE NEW JERUSalem, is a name given to the church of Christ, and signifying is firm foundations in the love, choice, an covenant of God; its strong bulwarks, living fountains, and beautiful palaces; its thronging thousands, its indwelling God, and its consummated glory in heaven, Galatians 4:26 Hebrews 12:22 Revelation 3:12 21:1-27
Canaan - The Semitic names Melchizedek, Hamer, Sisera, Salem, Ephrath are doubtless not the original Canaanite names, but their Hebraized forms
Jeru'Salem - (the habitation of peace ), JeruSalem stands in latitude 31 degrees 46' 35" north and longitude 35 degrees 18' 30" east of Greenwich. Hebron indeed is higher still by some hundred feet, and from the south, accordingly (even from Bethlehem), the approach to JeruSalem is by a slight descent. 170,
JeruSalem, if not actually in the centre of Palestine, was yet virtually so. This road led by the two Beth-horons up to the high ground at Gibeon, whence it turned south, and came to JeruSalem by Ramah and Gibeah, and over the ridge north of the city. --To convey an idea of the position of JeruSalem, we may say, roughly, that the city occupies the southern termination of the table-land which is cut off from the country round it on its west, south and east sides by ravines more than usually deep and precipitous. Of these two, that on the west is the higher and more massive, on which the city of JeruSalem now stands, and in fact always stood. JeruSalem. Water Supply --(JeruSalem had no natural water supply, unless we so consider the "Fountain of the Virgin," which wells up with an intermittent action from under Ophel. Taking the population of the old city at the probable number of the one person to 50 yards, we have 15,000 and at the extreme limit of 30 yards we should have 25,000 inhabitants for the old city, and at 100 yards to each individual in the new city about 15,000 more; so that the population of JeruSalem, in its days of greatest prosperity, may have amounted to from 30,000 to 45,000 souls, but could hardly ever have reached 50,000; and assuming that in times of festival one-half was added to this amount, which is an extreme estimate, there may have been 60,000 or 70,000 in the city when Titus came up against it. (Josephus says that at the siege of JeruSalem the population was 3,000,000; but Tacitus' statement that it was 600,000 is nearer the truth. To the houses we have even less clue; but there is no reason to suppose that in either houses or streets the ancient JeruSalem differed very materially from the modern. --If, as is possible, Salem is the same with JeruSalem, the first mention of JeruSalem is in ( Genesis 14:18 ) about B. In consequence of his tyranny, the Jews rose under the Maccabees, and JeruSalem became again independent, and retained its position until its capture by the Romans under Pompey, B. With the fall of the Abassides the holy city passed into the hands of the Fatimite dynasty, under whom the sufferings of the Christians in JeruSalem reached their height. It was taken by the Crusaders in 1099, and for eighty-eight years JeruSalem remained in the hand of the Christians. In 1277 JeruSalem was nominally annexed to the kingdom of Sicily. (Modern JeruSalem , called by the Arabs el-Khuds , is built upon the ruins of ancient JeruSalem. The most beautiful part of modern JeruSalem is the former temple area (Mount Moriah), "with its lawns and cypress tress, and its noble dome rising high above the wall. " The present number of inhabitants in JeruSalem is variously estimated
Jerusalem - JeruSalem (je-ru'sa-lĕm). Jewish writers held that it was the same as Salem. The first notice of it as JeruSalem is in Joshua 10:1. Jebusi—and in Judges 19:10-11, "Jebus, which is JeruSalem," because it was then a city inhabited by Jebusites. JeruSalem is in latitude 31° 47' north, and in longitude 35° 18' east from Greenwich, or about the latitude of Savannah, Ga. Olivet is 90 feet higher than the highest point of JeruSalem, 143 feet higher than Mount Zion, and 243 feet higher than the temple mount. But the distance from the highest point of JeruSalem to the top of Olivet is scarcely more than a mile. Thus Olivet overlooks JeruSalem, and from its summit the best view of the city is obtained. Hebron, indeed, is higher still by some hundred feet, and from the south, accordingly (even from Bethlehem), the approach to JeruSalem is by a slight descent. The elevation of JeruSalem is a subject of constant reference and exultation by the Jewish writers. JeruSalem, if not actually in the centre of Palestine, was yet virtually so. This central position as expressed in the words of Ezekiel 5:5, "I nave set JeruSalem in the midst of the nations and countries round about her," led in later ages to a definite belief that the city was actually in the centre of the earth. This road led by the two Bethhorons up to the high ground at Gibeon, whence it turned south, and came to JeruSalem by Ramah and Gibeah, and over the ridge north of the city. The chief gates of JeruSalem, now are four: the Damascus gate on the north, the Jaffa gate on the west, David or Zion gate on the south, and St. JeruSalem of today as walled in would require about an hour to walk around it. We catch our earliest glimpse of JeruSalem in Joshua 10:1, and in Judges 1:1-36. which describes how the "children of Judah smote it with the edge of the sword, and set the city on fire;" and almost the latest mention of it in the New Testament is contained in the solemn warnings in which Christ foretold how JeruSalem should be "compassed with armies," Luke 21:20, and the "abomination of desolation" be seen standing in the Holy Place, Matthew 24:15. The books of Kings and of Chronicles give the history of JeruSalem under the monarchy. Under the Maccabees JeruSalem became independent and retained its position until its capture by the Romans under Pompey, b. It was taken by the Crusaders in 1099, and for 88 years JeruSalem remained in the hands of the Christians. In 1277 JeruSalem was nominally annexed to the kingdom of Sicily. A steam railway was opened from Jaffa (Joppa) to JeruSalem in October, 1892. — It is estimated that modern JeruSalem has from 50,000 to 75,000 inhabitants, of whom 12,000 are Mohammedans, 8000 Christians, and 25,000 to 30,000 (Conder says 40,000) Jews, nearly 30,000 depending largely for their living upon benevolent gifts from religious brethren elsewhere. The population of JeruSalem in ancient times probably did not exceed 75,000 at any period of Bible history. — Besieged 17 times, twice destroyed, ancient JeruSalem is now buried under 80 feet of earth and rubbish. Of the explorations and present condition of the city, Selah Merrill, United States consul at JeruSalem (in Jackson's concise Dictionary), says: "One would suppose that in a place like JeruSalem, which has always teen a centre of special interest, there would be many remains of antiquity and a large number of historical sites whose genuineness no person would question. In the northwest corner of the city the foundations of one of the great towers of ancient JeruSalem have been uncovered, and massive work of the same age is found at the Damascus Gate. Beyond these, our knowledge of the various places in ancient JeruSalem, noticed in the Bible and Josephus, is indefinite if not chaotic. JeruSalem is not a centre of trade, and it has few manufactures or business by which wealth can be acquired. Upward of 40 different languages and dialects are spoken in JeruSalem. JeruSalem is named 799 times in the Bible, and many times alluded to in sacred history and prophecy
Priest (2) - (γ) The meaning of the title ‘king of Salem’ suggests the idea of peace
Hebrews Epistle to the - The name Melchizedek, which means ‘king of righteousness,’ indicates the personal, not merely official, holiness of the true priest; his connexion with Salem, which means ‘peace,’ points to the abiding union between God and man which he effects; the absence from the record of any mention of Melchizedek’s parentage and of any references to his birth or his death suggests that the perfect priesthood is eternal and exercised by right of the personal qualification of the priest (Hebrews 7:1-3)
Abram - On his return, passing near Salem, supposed to be the city afterward called JeruSalem, he was blessed by its king Melchizedec, who was priest of the most high God; so that the knowledge and worship of Jehovah had not quite departed at that time from the Canaanitish nations
Moravians - ) "The Brethren had three flourishing settlements on the river Muskingum, Salem, Gnadenhuetten, and Schoenbruna, before the late American war, during which these places were destroyed, and the inhabitants partly murdered, partly dispersed
Psalms, Theology of - These collections would have included psalms associated in the Hebrew Bible with the likes of David (3-9; 11-32; 34-41; 51-65; 68-70; 86; 101; 103; 108-110; 122; 124; 131; 133; 138-145), Solomon (72; 127), the Korahites (42; 44-49; 84-85; 87-88), and Asaph (50; 73-83); psalms of the so-called Elohistic Psalter (42-83) in which the generic term for Israel's deity, elohim [ אֱלֹהִים ], translated "God, " came to be substituted for his personal name, "Yahweh, " which Jews were increasingly disinclined to pronounce; the Hallelujah Psalms (105-106; 111-118; 135-136; 146-150) which usually begin and/or end with that expression of praise; and the Songs of Ascent (120-134), ostensibly sung by pilgrims on their way to celebrate the great festivals at the temple in JeruSalem. ... The songs of Zion (46; 48; 76; 84; 87; 122) celebrate the holy city, JeruSalem. This connection with the Canaanite priest-king of Salem = JeruSalem in Abram's day (Genesis 14:17-24 ; Psalm 76:2 ) highlights the sacral nature and privileges of Israelite kingship, privileges that were seldom exercised by Israel's monarchs. It also points to the link between the throne and the sanctuary that was forged for the Judean monarchy by David when he established JeruSalem as the political and religious capital (2 Samuel 5:6-10 ; 6:12-17 ; Psalm 132 )
Jerusalem - formerly called Jebus, or Salem, Joshua 18:28 ; Hebrews 7:2 , the capital of Judea, situated partly in the tribe of Benjamin, and partly in that of Judah. As JeruSalem was the centre of the true worship, Psalms 122:4 , and the place where God did in a peculiar manner dwell, first in the tabernacle, 2 Samuel 6:7 ; 2 Samuel 6:12 ; 1 Chronicles 15:1 ; 1 Chronicles 16:1 ; Psalms 132:13 ; Psalms 135:2 , and afterward in the temple, 1 Kings 6:13 ; so it is used figuratively to denote the church, or the celestial society, to which all that believe, both Jews and Gentiles, are come, and in which they are initiated, Galatians 4:26 ; Hebrews 12:22 ; Revelation 3:12 ; Revelation 21:2 ; Revelation 21:10 . JeruSalem was situated in a stony and barren soil, and was about sixty furlongs in length, according to Strabo. The ancient city of JeruSalem, or Jebus, which David took from the Jebusites, was not very large. ... Through the reigns of David and Solomon, JeruSalem was the metropolis of the whole Jewish kingdom, and continued to increase in wealth and splendour. Or, at least, though JeruSalem might not have been made a depot of merchandise, the quantity of precious metals flowing into it by direct importation, and by duties imposed on goods passing to the ports of the Mediterranean, and in other directions, was unbounded. Some idea of the prodigious wealth of JeruSalem at this time may be formed by stating, that the quantity of gold left by David for the use of the temple amounted to £21,600,000 sterling, beside £3,150,000 in silver; and Solomon obtained £3,240,000 in gold by one voyage to Ophir, while silver was so abundant, "that it was not any thing accounted of. " These were the days of JeruSalem's glory. Universal peace, unmeasured wealth, the wisdom and clemency of the prince, and the worship of the true God, marked JeruSalem, above every city, as enjoying the presence and the especial favour of the Almighty. After the death of Solomon, ten of the twelve tribes revolted from his successor Rehoboam, and, under Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, established a separate kingdom: so that JeruSalem, no longer the capital of the whole empire, and its temple frequented only by the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, must have experienced a mournful declension. Within the space of sixty-six years more it was taken by Pharaoh-Necho, king of Egypt, whom Josiah, king of Judah, had opposed in his expedition to Carchemish; and who, in consequence, was killed at the battle of Megiddo, and his son Eliakim placed on the throne in his stead by Necho, who changed his name to Jehoiakim, and imposed a heavy tribute upon him, having sent his elder brother, Jehoahaz, who had been proclaimed king at JeruSalem, a prisoner to Egypt, where he died, 2 Kings 23; 2 Chronicles 35. JeruSalem was three times besieged and taken by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon within a very few years. ... During seventy years, the city and temple lay in ruins: when those Jews who chose to take immediate advantage of the proclamation of Cyrus, under the conduct of Zerubbabel, returned to JeruSalem, and began to build the temple; all the vessels of gold and silver belonging to which, that had been taken away by Nebuchadnezzar, being restored by Cyrus. To him also a representation hostile to the Jews was made by their inveterate enemies, the Samaritans; but this noble prince refused to listen to it, and having searched the rolls of the kingdom, and found in the palace at Acmetha the decree of Cyrus, issued a similar one, which reached JeruSalem in the subsequent year, and even ordered these very Samaritans to assist the Jews in their work; so that it was completed in the sixth year of the same reign, Ezra 4:24 ; Ezra 5; Ezra 6:1-15 . But the city and walls remained in a ruinous condition until the twentieth year of Artaxerxes, the Artaxerxes Longimanus of profane history; by whom Nehemiah was sent to JeruSalem, with a power granted to him to rebuild them. From this time JeruSalem remained attached to the Persian empire, but under the local jurisdiction of the high priests, until the subversion of that empire by Alexander, fourteen years after. ... At the death of Alexander, and the partition of his empire by his generals, JeruSalem, with Judea, fell to the kings of Syria. 170, Antiochus Epiphanes, king of Syria, enraged at hearing that the Jews had rejoiced at a false report of his death, plundered JeruSalem, and killed eighty thousand men. Not more than two years afterward, this cruel tyrant, who had seized every opportunity to exercise his barbarity on the Jews, sent Apollonius with an army to JeruSalem; who pulled down the walls, grievously oppressed the people, and built a citadel on a rock adjoining the temple, which commanded that building, and had the effect of completely overawing the seditious. But this extremity of ignominy and oppression led, as might have been expected, to rebellion; and those Jews who still held their insulted religion in reverence, fled to the mountains, with Mattathias and Judas Maccabeus; the latter of whom, after the death of Mattathias, who with his followers and successors, are known by the name of Maccabees, waged successful war with the Syrians; defeated Apollonius, Nicanor, and Lysias, generals of Antiochus; obtained possession of JeruSalem, purified the temple, and restored the service, after three years' defilement by the Gentile idolatries. ... From this time, during several succeeding Maccabean rulers, who were at once high priests and sovereigns of the Jews, but without the title of king, JeruSalem was able to preserve itself from Syrian violence. Nor did JeruSalem long after enjoy the dignity of a metropolis, that honour being transferred to Caesarea. For the siege and destruction of JeruSalem by the Romans, See JEWS . ... JeruSalem lay in ruins about forty-seven years, when the Emperor AElius Adrian began to build it anew, and erected a Heathen temple, which he dedicated to Jupiter Capitolinus. In this state JeruSalem continued, under the name of AElia, and inhabited more by Christians and Pagans than by Jews, till the time of the Emperor Constantine, styled the Great; who, about the year 323, having made Christianity the religion of the empire, began to improve it, adorned it with many new edifices and churches, and restored its ancient name. ... JeruSalem continued in nearly the same condition till the beginning of the seventh century, when it was taken and plundered by the celebrated Chosroes, king of Persia, by whom many thousands of the Christian inhabitants were killed, or sold for slaves. The Persians, however, did not hold it long, as they were soon after entirely defeated by the Emperor Heraclius, who rescued JeruSalem, and restored it, not to the unhappy Jews, who were forbidden to come within three miles of it, but to the Christians. The accounts of modern JeruSalem by travellers are very numerous. Gender, in his "Palestine," has abridged them with judgment; and we give the following extract: The approach to JeruSalem from Jaffa is not the direction in which to see the city to the best effect. Clarke entered it by the Damascus gate: and he describes the view of JeruSalem, when first descried from the summit of a hill, at about an hour's distance, as most impressive. Instead of a wretched and ruined town, by some described as the desolated remnant of JeruSalem, we beheld, as it were, a flourishing and stately metropolis, presenting a magnificent assemblage of domes, towers, palaces, churches, and monasteries; all of which, glittering in the sun's rays, shone with inconceivable splendour. Clarke was fortunate in catching this first view of JeruSalem under the illusion of a brilliant evening sunshine; but his description is decidedly overcharged. After citing the language of the Prophet Jeremiah, in his lamentations on the desolation of the ancient city, as accurately portraying its present state, Lamentations 1:1-6 ; Lamentations 2:1-9 ; Lamentations 2:15 , he thus proceeds: "When seen from the Mount of Olives, on the other side of the Valley of Jehoshaphat, JeruSalem presents an inclined plane, descending from west to east. The houses of JeruSalem are heavy square masses, very low, without chimneys or windows: they have flat terraces or domes on the top, and look like prisons or sepulchres. Among the ruins of JeruSalem, two classes of independent people find in their religion sufficient fortitude to enable them to surmount such complicated horrors and wretchedness. Seventeen times have they witnessed the destruction of JeruSalem, yet nothing can discourage them, nothing can prevent them from turning their faces toward Sion. But to be struck with supernatural astonishment, you must view them at JeruSalem; you must behold these rightful masters of Judea living as slaves and strangers in their own country; you must behold them expecting, under all oppressions, a king who is to deliver them. The sight of a poor Jew in JeruSalem has in it something peculiarly affecting. JeruSalem is the centre around which the exiled sons of Judah build, in imagination, the mansions of their future greatness.
