The Hebrew word which means 'to establish His name' is l'shichno. The root of this word, shachen means 'to dwell', and is also the root of the word shechina, the word used to refer to Hashem's presence. The use of this word to refer to His presence alludes to our close, personal, relationship with the Almighty, as the name indicates that He dwells among us. Additionally, this verse reminds us that the place on earth where Hashem's presence is found more than any other is the Temple Mount in Yerushalayaim. One great way to develop your personal relationship with Hashem is by reading and learning the Bible in its original Hebrew and establishing His name in your daily life.
In the Second Temple Period, Jews would celebrate the holiday of Sukkot on the Mount of Olives. The Jews made the pilgrimage to the Mount of Olives for the celebration as its higher location allowed for a beautiful panoramic view of the Temple Mount.

I support Israel because that is the country and people of Yeshua and he will save Israel from the unbelievers who would destroy the country because they want to take it over and shore up their false religion of Islam which is based on Babylonian myths and has no basis in reality!
