Psalm 122:2-3 Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together,
I used to think that Jerusalem, the old city, was a city compact together as shown on the home page for this thought. Then, a couple days ago, I had the opportunity to go up into a building, in the center of the Western part of Jerusalem, to the 20th floor and look out over this city that is absolutely compact together. Old city and newer part are all compact together. I also look around and see apartment buildings that are ten and fifteen floors and there are so very many of them. I know that there are other parts of Jerusalem that are even more compact than this but the psalm is absolutely correct, I am absolutely amazed at what I see and experience in this wonderful city of God.
