And Jerusalem? Oh yes, there was a stream—the 'river' or stream that David said ‘made glad the city of God’! (see Psalm 46:4).
It was called the ‘Bursting Forth’ or Gihon, and it sprang up on the eastern slope of the southern ridge of Mt Moriah. It was a powerful, karst type, spring (similar to Crystal Geyser, the cold water geyser pictured left at Green River Utah, USA) and its waters were piped up into the Temple and the City of David.
It provided the ‘living water’ that was necessary to represent the Presence of God—and David also had this to say about it in relation to those who put their trust in God: ‘...they are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of your house AND you give them drink from the river of your pleasures, for WITH YOU is the fountain of life’ (Psalm 36:8 & 9).
WITH HIM! There, where his presence dwelt in the holy place, within the City of David. The requirement for living water at the place of his presence DEMANDS that the temple be located in the City of David, otherwise known as Zion!
