At the center of the world is Zion, where the Lord, the King of all, exercises His rule. From Zion come the Lord’s kingly rescues (Ps. 14:7). To Zion come all of the Lord’s people to worship Him and offer Him their fealty (Pss. 65:1; 84:7). Zion is the place where we see as nowhere else the glory of God’s reign: it is a new Eden, the most beautiful place on earth (Ps. 50:2). God’s people love it so much that they wish they could live there all the time (Ps. 84:2–4).
