In Isaiah 29:1 it states NLT “What sorrow awaits Ariel, the City of David. Year after year you celebrate your feasts.” states “The word Ariel means “lion of God,” referring to the city’s strength and perhaps “hearth of God,” referring to the place where the altar of God always burns. (Verses 7-8), show this to be a name for Jerusalem and the chapter looks to the invasion of Jerusalem because of unbelief.”
