MORIAH

(moh ri' uh) Place name of uncertain meaning translated in various ways, including “Amorites” by earliest translators. The rocky outcropping in Jerusalem located just north of the ancient city of David. It was on this rock that Abraham would have sacrificed Isaac as a burnt offering, but God intervened and provided a ram (Genesis 22:2,Genesis 22:13). Later, the Jebusite city of Salem was built adjacent to the hill. After David captured the site, he purposed to build there a Temple for the ark of the covenant. However, God gave that task to his son Solomon (1 Chronicles 28:3-6). It may be modern khirbet Beth-Lejj.
