"Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city" (Isa. 52:1). From the words of David in the Old Testament to those of Christ in the New Testament, from the teachings of Lehi in the Book of Mormon to those of the Prophet Joseph Smith in the Doctrine and Covenants, Jerusalem's sweep of influence includes the past, present, and future.
