Dominus Flevit

"The Lord Wept" - this beautiful teardrop chapel was only built in 1955 over the site of a Byzantine construction. It commemorates the occasion of Jesus looking at the city of Jerusalem and, when realising that it was going to destroy itself by violence, weeping bitterly.

In the grounds are the remains of a Byzantine church, as well as part of the first century necropolis that surrounded the city. Extraordinary view.

Luke Chapter 19

Dominus Flevit

41 And when he drew near and saw the city he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace!  But now they are hid from your eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon you, when your enemies will cast up a bank about you and surround you, and hem you in on every side, 44 and dash you to the ground, you and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another in you; because you did not know the time of your visitation.”


The Revised Standard Version, (New York: Oxford University Press, Inc.) 1973, 1977.
