1. Introduction to “Jerusalem is the GARDEN of Eden”

I had begun to write about the River Pison when I decided to explore the Hebrew word for GARDEN .

I did so because I had been thinking about  Archangel Gabriel’s Words that  “Israel is Eden, Jerusalem is the Garden of  Eden” (#Archangel #Gabriel’s Question About The Garden Of #Eden).

As I reviewed the Hebrew word for “GARDEN”  my eyes were opened to  an astonishing discovery  which  confirmed Archangel Gabriel’s Words that “Israel is Eden, Jerusalem is the Garden of  Eden.”

Here are the key texts:

And the LORD God planted a GARDEN1588   and there he put the man whom he had formed.

And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the GARDEN1588, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

And a river went out of Eden to water the GARDEN1588; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads…

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the GARDEN1588 of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the GARDEN1588   thou mayest freely eat  (Genesis 2: 8 – 10; 15 & 16).


2. Gan, the Hebrew word for the GARDEN of Eden

A review of the cross references show that Gan,  the Hebrew word for GARDEN  was used specifically in reference to the:

  • GARDEN  of Eden
  •  GARDEN  of Eden, which was the point at which River Eden parted into four heads.
  • location of the Tree of Life
  • site of the temptation and fall of the human race into sin.

 The translators of the Hebrew text used other synonyms for  GanThese synonyms, when applied to Eden/Jerusalem, reveal that is was:

  • well watered – Genesis 13: 10; Isaiah 58: 11.
  • a garden of herbs – Deuteronomy 11: 10; 1 Kings 21: 2.
  • associated with Kings’ palaces or dwellings – 2 Kings 21: 18.
  • enclosed – Songs of Solomon 4: 12 (parallel in Isaiah 5).
  • a place where spices, pleasant fruit, flowers like lillies,  cedars and other trees grew – Songs of Solomon 4: 16 & 6: 2; Ezekiel 31: 8& 9.
  • the garden of the Lord/His place of relaxation – Genesis 13: 10; Isaiah 51: 3; Ezekiel 28: 13; Ezekiel 31: 8& 9.

As I completed this paragraphy, I heard ARCHANGEL GABRIEL SAY THAT HE IS CALLING ON ISRAEL TO RESTORE  JERUSALEM, HIS GARDEN /GAN,  BACK TO ITS FORMER  GLORY AND A PLACE WHERE THE FATHER CAN DWELL.

3. The secret that JERUSALEM IS EDEN is hidden in  GANAN/H 1598, the root word for GARDEN/Gan

As I read the texts related to  GAN/GARDEN  I decided to explore its root word  GANAN/H 1598.   GANAN/H 1598 occurs eight times in seven verses in the Hebrew concordance of the King James Version of the Bible.

GANAN/H 1598, the root word for GAN/GARDEN  is used specifically in reference to the city of Jerusalem:

  • For I will defend1598 this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake – 2 Kings 19: 34.
  • And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend1598 this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake – 2 Kings 2o: 6.
  • As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend1598 Jerusalem; defending1598 also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve it –  Isaiah 31: 5.
  • For I will defend1598 this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake – Isaiah 37: 35.
  • And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend1598 this city –  Isaiah 38: 6.
  • The LORD of hosts shall defend1598 them… –   Zechariah 9: 15.
  • In that day shall the LORD defend1598 the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.  – Zechariah 12: 8.

These texts serve to reveal that:

  1. Jerusalem is the GAN/GARDEN  of Eden.
  2. God will defend His GAN/GARDEN from extinction by enemies because of His Promise to David. I pray that Israel will take comfort in the Word of the Lord and look to Him for refuge and defense.

Father I ask now for blessings, peace, angelic prosperity and protection upon your people Israel.

4. Comparisons

I found three Hebrew and  one Greek word that are used for Garden. However,  they do not refer at all to Jerusalem as the Garden of  EdenGANAN/H 1598 is the only  word that does so very specifically –

  1. ginnah/H 1594
  2. gannah/H 1593
  3. garden of cucumbers 4750
  4. Greek word – garden 2779
