When David took it from the Jebusites (Joshua 15:63; 2Sam. 5:7) he built on it a citadel and a palace, and it became "the city of David" (1 Kings 8:1; 2Kings 19:21,31; 1 Chronicles 11:5). In the later books of the Old Testament this name was sometimes used (Psalms 87:2; 149:2; Isaiah 33:14; Joel 2:1) to denote Jerusalem in general, and sometimes God's chosen Israel (Psalms 51:18; 87:5).
In the New Testament (see SION) it is used sometimes to denote the Church of God (Hebrews 12:22), and sometimes the heavenly city (Revelation 14:1).
