There was a location which became known as THE Place (in Hebrew HaMakom) which, as this Psalm indicates, he had both ‘chosen’ and ‘desired’ from the beginning!
What the ancient Gihon Spring enclosure looked like.
The chosen and desired Place had been indicated from ancient time. It was where Abraham offered Isaac, where Jacob had his dream, it was what Moses instructed Joshua to seek upon entering the land! It was where David placed the Ark of the Presence in a specially prepared tent—at Gihon, the fountain that provided life-giving water for the City of David. It is where David’s son Solomon constructed the temple that God had put in David’s heart.
