o.l. (im Druck): "3090. We are standing on the northern wall of / Jerusalem, near the Damascus Gate, looking southwest / over the city. It is the Christian quarter we see / stretched out before us. / ´´There is almost a melancholy monotony in these / little one-story and two-story houses, with their bulg- / ing domes. That house almost under us is a typical / Oriental dwelling. You can see that it fronts upon a / court, that it has a platform on a part of the roof, and / that it has a ´large upper room´ under the roof (Mark / xiv. 15). The tall building on the right, with a pointed / tower, is the Greek conyent; that on the left, with a / large dome and a smaller one, is the Church of the / Holy Sepulchre, which millions of the Christian world / believe - although scholars disagree about it - covers the / site of the Cross and the Tomb of Jesus Christ. Di- / rectly beyond the large dome we see the Tower of / David. The Jaffa Gate is a little to the right of the / Tower. / ´´Look back through the centuries and see here an- / other Jerusalem - a city ´beautiful for situation´ / (Psalm xlviii. 2). See Abraham, father of the faith- / ful and friend of God, giving homage to Melchizedek / as King, and paying tithes to him as Priest of the // Most High (Genesis xiv. 17-20). See Abraham´s de- / scendants four hundred years later, now grown to a / mighty host, sweeping past this city in a swift march / of conquest (Joshua x: 1-10; 16-25). See David´s pal- / ace rising yonder, not far from the spot where the / Tower of David now stands. The Jerusalem of today / is a ´lorn Syrian town,´ but the Jerusalem seen by / the inward eye is the Holy City, the centre of the / world´s interest." / See ´´Travelling in the Holy Land,´´ by J.L. Hurlburt, D.D." u.l. (im Druck): "Jerusalem, the City of Zion (1 Chron. xi, 5). / Jérusalem, la ville de Sion (1 Chronio xi, 5). / Jerusalem oder Zionsftadt (1. Chronika xi,5). / Jerusalén ó ciudad de Zion (1 Crónica xi, 5). / Jerusalem, Zion´s Stad (1 Krön. xi,5). / [kyrillisch]"
