a.k.a (also known as),
/ (dʒəˈruːsələm) / [ ji-roo-suh-luh m ]
‘The name “Shalem”, whether as a town or a deity, is derived from the same root as the word “shalom”, meaning peace, so that the common interpretation of the name is now “The City of Peace” or “Abode of Peace“. ‘
The Lord God speaking;
2 Chronicles 6:5-6 NKJV ‘Since the day that I brought My people out of the land of Egypt, I have chosen no city from any tribe of Israel in which to build a house, that My name might be there, nor did I choose any man to be a ruler over My people Israel. Yet I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name may be there, and I have chosen David to be over My people Israel.’
5-6 TJB “From the day I brought My people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city, in any of the tribes of Israel, to have a house built where My name might make its home, and chose no man to be prince of My people Israel; but I chose Jerusalem for My name to make its home there, and I chose David to rule over Israel My people”.
in other words,
5-6 TLB ‘I have never before, since bringing My people from the land of Egypt, chosen a city anywhere in Israel as the location of my Temple where My name will be glorified; and never before have I chosen a king for My people Israel. But now I have chosen Jerusalem as that city, and David as that king.’
Therefore when you pray for Israel particularly Jerusalem, you are praying for the City of Peace.
(how awesome is that!) Maranatha!
