Jerusalem is the choice city of God. Holy and most glorious it was built upon the holy mountain excelling all the cities in the world as well as by the lofaness of the seat. As by the modernation and temperature of the heavens and fruitfullness of its soil it was situated in the midst of the whole world & of Judea as it were in the centre and heart of the earth and being as a queen amongst all other neighboring cities had the prominence as the head over the body. This city was built (as some judge) about the year from the creation of the world 2043 in the time of Abraham by Melehifedeck the king. In Hebrew it was called Salem, in Greek Solima, Though it seemed that it then preferred the same for 50 years. Afterwards the Jebuhtes enjoyed it who sprung from Jebus the son of Canaan. Afterwards David enjoyed the city, the jebasites being expulsed he re editfied the same & fortified it with a castle, dwelt therein and made it the Metropolitan city of all Judea & the head of all the kingdoms. Then from thenceforth he called it Jerusalem. Some say it is called Jerusalem from the magnificent temple that Solomon built thererin. In length of time Solomon and other kings of Judea greatly enlarged the same and so fortified it with strong towers, Walls & trenches, likewise adorned it with a temple with palaces & most esquisite buildings, that among other cities it was the miracle of the whole world, and is therefore more honored with silence than all that can be said concerning the same. It stood in the Tribe of Benjamin, some borders of of it were in Judea, In the year of our lord 1517 it was invaded by Selimo, the emperior of Turkey & is at this day inhabited by Turks, who call it Cufumo-Bareek et Gods Barick that is to say holy city so that from its foundation to this present year of 1737 are passed 3674 years.
