Map of Jerusalem - quarters

Jerusalem is mentioned in Egyptian documents as Rushalimum in 1900 BC around the time of Abraham. In the 1300’s Jerusalem is called Urusalim in the el-Armarna letters. In the Assyrian documents of Sennacherib from the 600’s BC it is called Uruslimmu. The Hebrews called it Yerushalem.

The name Jerusalem is a compound word from “yrw” and “slm” which would mean “Foundation of Shalem”. Shalem was one of the “beautiful and gracious gods” of Ugaritic mythology. The ancient word “yrw” appears in Job 38:6 as “cornerstone”, “bases” or “foundation”. The very ancient word “Shalem” is the Canaanite name of this city Jerusalem in Abraham’s day when it says in Genesis 14:18: “Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High.” Before David took the city it was occupied by the Jebusites and Jerusalem was called Jebus at that time.
