Mount Zion

For Jews, Zion became a symbol of Jerusalem and the entire Promised Land, which the Jewish people have been striving for since the dispersion after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem.



The Bible calls Zion simply Zion, «the city of David», «the holy city», «the house and home of God», «the royal city of God», figuratively referring to Jerusalem itself, the tribe of Judah and the kingdom of Judah, all of Judah and all the people of Judah.
