This chapter presents biblical narratives of Jerusalem in the 1st millennium bce with accompanying maps and photographs. The city of Jerusalem was established at a point where three valleys meet: the Hinnom valley (or Gehenna) to the west and south, the Kidron valley to the east, and between them the Central (later Tyropoeon, or Cheesemakers') valley. The earliest city appears to have occupied the southern part of the ridge between the Kidron and the Central valleys, below which was a perennial spring, the Gihon.

Keywords: Jerusalem; city; valleys; Kidron; Gihon
