Future Elevation of Jerusalem


Zecharyah 14:9 predicts the levelling of land around Jerusalem. Radak explains:

"Even though she is already elevated above all of Israel now, her height is not that visible because of the mountains which surround her. At that time the land around her will be a plain, and so her height will be visible above the entire land. Thus Yeshayah (2:2, and Michah 4:1) said, "The mountain of the house of Gd will be established at the head of the mountains and elevated above hills." That actually refers to elevation in stature, but all will be true, this and that."

(Radak to Zecharyah 14:10)

Have a great day,
