Etymology[edit]

From Late Latin Ierusalem, Hierusalem, from Latin Hierosolyma, from Ancient Greek Ἰερουσαλήμ (Ierousalḗm), from Biblical Hebrew יְרוּשָׁלַיִם (Yərūšālayim), from Western Semitic Urušalimmi (attested in Ancient Egyptian as [script needed]), a compound of Semitic *uru (town) and *šalām- (peace) or *šalim ("Shalim, Canaanite deity of twilight"). The Latin forms with H- were influenced by Ancient Greek ἱερός (hierós, sacred, holy).
