But David went up the ascent of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went, with his head covered and walking barefoot; and all the people who were with him covered their heads and went up, weeping as they went. 2 Samuel 15:30
4 On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives, which lies before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley; so that one half of the Mount shall withdraw northward, and the other half southward. 5 And you shall flee by the valley of the Lord's mountain, for the valley between the mountains shall reach to Azal; and you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. 6 On that day there shall not be either cold or frost. 7 And there shall be continuous day (it is known to the Lord), not day and not night, for at evening time there shall be light. Zechariah 14:4-7
Every day he was teaching in the temple, and at night he would go out and spend the night on the Mount of Olives, as it was called. Luke 21:37
Views from the Mount of Olives
Because of the belief that this is where God will begin to redeem the dead at the end of the age, the Mount of Olives is the favorite spot for a Jewish burial. Here you can see part of the cemetery as well as Hezekiah and Absalom's tombs.
