Geological (sedimentological) aspects evaluating the excavation of Jebus suggest that the Jebusites worshipped God of Nature. It did not threaten the Jewish monotheistic belief compared to the religious ritual and habits of the other Canaanites, for which the city of Jebus existed until David captured it without any bloodshed or destruction. Lithological affinities substantiate the biblical records of the early constructions in David’s City (Ir David; southeast Jerusalem) such as the Millo and the location of the Tent of Congregation housing the Ark of the Covenant until the temple was built and inaugurated by King Solomon.
