All the other definitions are wrong - Zion is the biblical land of Israel (as opposed to modern Israel), not a hill, clan, person or group. A belief that Zion is the Jewish homeland and the best place for Jews to be, as outlined in the Old Testament or Torah, is known as Zionism. The proper, Hebrew pronunciation is Tsee-On. I know this because I am a Jew, FYI, so anyone who says Zion is, and I quote, "a male with a very very very large set of penis and balls", I am very offended.
Jewish Prayer:
And when they took the Ark (of the Covenant) out, Moses would say "The Torah will come out of Jerusalem, and Your (G-d's) word from Zion.

Believe it or not, there is actually a real place called Zion in the Holy Land!

ok, so I'm sick of fake definitions (no, its not the city from the matrix) so im gonna put it down how its supposed to be..

Zion is not a defined place - not a town, mountain, cave, lake or whatever it is a symbolical place that forms a strong spiritual bond with believers such as rastafari people. It can be any of those places its a matter of where YOU make it... it has to be a place where you find your inner peace and are calm and peaceful so you can achieve total happines.
Fire descends from on high in the shape of a lion
Burn di sacrifice of pride and ride on to mount Zion
Fire - symbol of rebelion
Lion - the emblem from the national Ehiopian emperor Haile Selasie, a symbol of freedom
Zion - the place where you will become the happiest person alive

A funny, weird, cool, cute guy who tries to keep as many friends as possible. He's the best guy friend or boyfriend you could ask for. He usually doesn't respond to texts right away because he usually busy or focused on his life at that moment to keep his friends and family happy. He's shy at first but give it a week of hanging out with him and he's your best friend. He gives great hugs and can make you laugh whenever or wherever. Zion is basically the perfect guy.
Guy 1: "Dude have you met that Zion guy, he's super real and cool."
Guy 2: "Yeah bro, he's so legit and funny."

Girl 1: "OMG Zion is so cute and hilarious!"
Girl 2: "I know even the cheerleaders are talking about him!"
