Easton's Bible Dictionary

trodden hard, or fastness, or "the waterless hill", The name of the Canaanitish city which stood on Mount Zion ( Joshua 15:8 ; 18:16 , 18:28 ). It is identified with Jerusalem (q.v.) in Judges 19:10, and with the castle or city of David ( 1 Chronicles 11:4 , 11:5 ). It was a place of great natural strength, and its capture was one of David's most brilliant achievements ( 2 Samuel 5:8 ).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

je'-bus (yebhuc; Iebous):

In Judges 19:10 , 11, "Jebus (the same is Jerusalem)"; 1 Chronicles 11:4 , 5 , "Jerusalem (the same is Jebus)." It was once thought that this was the first name of Jerusalem, as indeed might be suggested by the Biblical references, but it is now known from the Tell el-Amarna Letters that Urusa-lem was a name used centuries before the time of David (see JERUSALEM, I). It would appear probable that the name "Jebus" was evolved by the Hebrews as an alternate name, and possibly they may have imagined an earlier name, for Jerusalem from JEBUSITE (which see), the name of the local tribe who owned the district in the first centuries of Israel's occupation of Canaan.
