THE LORD'S PRAYER IN HEBREW. Hebrew is
written, and read, from right to left. In ancient times inscriptions were engraved on
stone tablets (as with the Ten Commandments and the Moabite stone). The reason might be

from right to left. There may be other explanations, but this one seems very probable.
"Of the 10 measures of beauty that God hath bestowed upon the world, nine of these
fall to the lot of Jerusalem." -The Talmud
"Erets Yisrael is the navel of the
world, and Jerusalem is its center, and the Bet ha Mikdash is at the center of Jerusalem,
and the Holy of Holies is at its center, and the Holy Ark is at the center of the Holy of
holies, and in front of it is the Foundation Stone on which the world was founded."
"No people blessed as thine, no
city like Jerusalem" -Christian Hymn
"One prayer in Jerusalem is worth
40,000 elsewhere." -Islamic Saying
"A city, the fame of which has gone
out from one end of the world to the other." -The Talmud
"Great is the LORD, and greatly to
be praised in the city of our God, in His holy mountain. Beautiful in elevation, the joy
of the whole earth, is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, the city of the great
King." -Ps 48:1-2
"At that time Jerusalem shall be
called The Throne of the LORD, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of
the LORD, to Jerusalem. No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts."
