 Moriah
    the chosen of Jehovah. Some contend that Mount Gerizim is meant,
    but most probably we are to regard this as one of the hills of
    Jerusalem. Here Solomon's temple was built, on the spot that had
    been the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite (2 Sam. 24:24,
    25; 2 Chr. 3:1). It is usually included in Zion, to the
    north-east of which it lay, and from which it was separated by
    the Tyropoean valley. This was "the land of Moriah" to which
    Abraham went to offer up his son Isaac (Gen. 22:2). It has been
    supposed that the highest point of the temple hill, which is now
    covered by the Mohammedan Kubbetes-Sakhrah, or "Dome of the
    Rock," is the actual site of Araunah's threshing-floor. Here
    also, one thousand years after Abraham, David built an altar and
    offered sacrifices to God. (See JERUSALEM; NUMBERING
    THE PEOPLE.)
