Names of Jerusalem
Jerusalem is the city with the largest amount of names in the world
Jerusalem has many names, most of which appear in the Bible. The first mention of Jerusalem was discovered in cave inscriptions in Egypt from the 18th century B.C. In the Bible, Jerusalem is first mentioned in the Book of Genesis when Abraham meets Melchizedek, King of Salem (Shalem).
The Midrash (Numbers Rabbah 12:14) notes that Jerusalem has 70 names, some of which note a specific place in Jerusalem such as Har Hamor (Mt. Mor), a synonym of Temple Mount. Other names note a particular property: perfect beauty, city of justice, city of G-d.
Some of the names express feelings: so full of people, hub of the earth, beautiful height, perfect beauty, the world’s gladness.
