The following is the results of your search for Congregation, Mount of the.
Congregation, Mount of the: (Isaiah 14:13) has been supposed to refer to the place where God promised
to meet with his people
(Exodus 25:22; 29:42,43) i.e., the mount of the
Divine presence, Mount Zion. But here the king of Babylon must be taken
as expressing himself according to his own heathen notions, and not
according to those of the Jews. The "mount of the congregation" will
therefore in this case mean the northern mountain, supposed by the
Babylonians to be the meeting-place of their gods. In the Babylonian
inscriptions mention is made of a mountain which is described as "the
mighty mountain of Bel, whose head rivals heaven, whose root is the
holy deep." This mountain was regarded in their mythology as the place
where the gods had their seat.
