She is set off from all the other cities of the world.
A City so fair and beautiful-The joy of all the earth-God is her defender because she is -The City of the Great King.
Every king has a city and Jerusalem is the City of the Great King
You City of redemption and salvation.
Father Abraham knew of this. As he went to offer his son, his only son whom He loved, on one of your mountain; Isaac was to be offered a sacrifice to the Lord, and as he climbed up Moriah carrying wood for the sacrifice- the wood that will be used to set the altar.
(But instead encountered A God who provides a Sacrifice for Himself: because the next time this happens, A Father will have to offer His Son His only Son).
Centuries later, Jesus climbed up your mountain with a wood that He will be crucified on.
He will be the ultimate sacrifice for the redemption of the whole world. This time The Father will not walk away with His Son, but the Son will have to face His wrath on behalf of the human race.
Oh Jerusalem The City of Salvation: an event that marked an epoch in the history of the mortals took place here.
An event that overturned and changed the entire history of the world happened here. No city like this City in all the earth; Indeed you are:
THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING.
