7 Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.

The first mention of Zion is when David captured the Jebusite stronghold and named it the "City of David." It was the southern extension of the hill of Moriah, where later the Temple was built.

These two hills-Moriah and Zion-together portray the priestly and kingly aspects-

"He shall be a priest upon his throne."

In the vast scope of the House of Prayer, as portrayed by Bro. Sulley-a scope utterly unperceived by any orthodox commentator-this whole area of Moriah and Zion form the central glorious pinnacle upon which the altar stands-

"Upon the top of the mountain, the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, THIS IS THE LAW OF THE HOUSE" (Eze. 43:12).
