city of David
2 Samuel 5:7
5:7 city of David. Jerusalem is called the city of David because he made it his capital. Bethlehem is also called the city of David because David was born there (Luke 2:4,11). That it was never the city of Melchizedek (called Salem) is evident from Ezekiel 16:2–4 (see note on Ezekiel 16:4). Compare with Genesis 14:18–20.
