Morrish Bible Dictionary
1. Symbolical name given to Jerusalem. Psalm 76:2 .
2. Probably the title of Melchisedec as king of peace, Genesis 14:18; Hebrews 7:1,2 . Various cities, however, have been suggested. Some consider that Jerusalem is alluded to; Jerome was convinced that a town near Scythopolis, named Salem, was the true place; but others judge it to be a title.
