Zion was one of the original hills upon which Jerusalem was built. Later the name began to apply to all of Jerusalem, and then to the Jewish religion itself, and finally to the modern movement (Zionism) to reestablish Palestine as the Jewish homeland.

David initially captured Zion, named it the Citadel of David,[1] and rendered it sacred by bringing the Ark to Zion.
