(Heb. Yehovah' Sham'mah, יְהוָֹה שָׁמָּה, Jehovah is there; Sept. Κύριος ἐκεῖ,Vulg. Dominus ibidem, Auth. Vers. "The Lord is there"), the symbolical title conferred by Ezekiel upon the spiritual representation of Jerusalam seen by him in his vision (Ezekiel 48:35); under a figure evidently of like import with the description of the new Jerusalem in the Apocalypse (Revelation 21:3; Revelation 22:3). In the Old Test. prophecy it appears to have been a type of the Gospel Church, (See IMMANUEL), probably through a primary reference to the restoration of the Jewish metropolis after the Exile, and perhaps of the recovery of the Jews to Christianity, whereas the N.T. seer carries forward the symbol to the heavenly abode of the saints (comp. Jeremiah 33:16).
