Not much further, as we went towards the west, we came to the corner of Mount Sion, where it ends towards the west, and there stands the citadel of David. It stands there at the present day, an exceeding strong and fair castle and place of strength, on the top of a steep rocky crag, and round about it are ditches which were always naturally deep on that side on which the Mount Sion joins the city; at which place was Millo. On the south side it is fenced at the present day by a deep valley: the castle also has high walls, and many towers and iron-barred gates. On another day I saw the whole of the castle on the inside. So now we stood still and gazed at the citadel of David, so often spoken of in Scripture, and Millo; and there we mused upon how Jerusalem must have looked in the days of old, for now it has been spoiled by its many sieges, and its deep valleys are filled up with heaps of ruins which have fallen into them. Close by the citadel of David is a. Way down into the city, and to the holy sepulchre, through a long street.
