If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
may my right hand wither.

Psalm 137

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her!"

Matthew 23:37

JERUSALEM draws upon these passages from The Psalms and The Gospel according to Matthew to underscore the sad reality that the cruel complexities of the Holy City stretch back through the centuries.
