City of God
City Of God, one of the names of ancient Jerusalem (Ps 46:4), and its appropriateness is evident from De 12:5.
HOLY CITY. The sacredness of the Temple extended itself in some measure over the city, and hence Jerusalem itself was called the Holy City, and is so distinguished in the East at the present day (Ne 11:1; Da 9:24). SEE JERUSALEM.
City Of Palm-Trees
City Of Salt
(in the plur. עָרֵי מַסכּנות, cities of provisions, "store-cities," 1Ki 9:19). Pithom and Raamses (q.v.) are mentioned in Ex 1:11, as treasure-cities built by Pharaoh by the unpaid labor of the Hebrews; they were probably magazines or depots for the royal revenue (which was doubtless paid in kind), such as are intimated in Ge 41:48; see 48:26. The Jewish kings had similar places of public deposit (2Ch 8:4,6; 2Ch 16:4; 2Ch 17:2). SEE TREASURE.
