q.gif (1639 bytes)   I am a King James believer, but I would be lying if I told someone that it is infallible, because in ps 65:1 "Sion" is mispelled.  It's supposed to be spelled with a "Z", not an "S".  This is a Messianic prophecy, and the kingdom will not be set up in Sion/Hermon Due.4:48, but in Zion/Jerusalem. A mispelling makes it fallible, doesn't it?

Jerusalem is called “Sion” 9 times in the Bible.

Psalms 65:1 says, “Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.” 

Matthew 21:5 says, “Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.”

John 12:15 says, “Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.”

Romans 9:33 says, “As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”

Romans 11:26 says, “And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”

Hebrews 12:22 says, “But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,”

1 Peter 2:6 says, “Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.”

Revelation 14:1 says, “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.”


Jerusalem is called “Zion” 154 times in the Bible.

Isaiah 2:3 says, “And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”


Jerusalem is called “Salem” 4 times in the Bible.

Psalms 76:2 says, “In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.”


Jerusalem is called  the “City of David” 47 times in the Bible.

2 Samuel 5:7 says, “Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.”


You can see why it is sometimes shortened to the “S” beginning by looking at Strong’s Concordance.  “H6726 Tsiyown (1)Tsiyown tsee-yone' the same (regularly) as 6725; Tsijon (as a permanent capital), a mountain of Jerusalem:--Zion.  IN SION (1)Ps 65:1.”


Do not give up your stand on the Word of God.  God promised to preserve His Word pure for every generation.  Psalms 12:6-7 says,  “6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.   7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”
