Nick has said before it is a weapon. So the why is for war or coercion via force. who? the followers of the adversary?
According to myth, those who made a covenant to worship Yahweh. Isnít that Zion?
If what you said is accurate then those who made a covenant did so because they are dry. People who are part of Zion must suck big time.
'Zion' means a 'dry place' on some layer. They need to make a covenant with god because they have nothing in and of themselves, therefore they are dry. They need to be blessed by something external and because of this they are lessened.
Break 'Zion' apart and you get 'Z' and 'ion'. 'Z' is pronounced by some outside the states as 'Zed' so combine that and you get 'Zedion'. The etymology of 'Zed' is 'weapon' so 'zedion' literally means to 'weaponize energy' (a very specific kind) and to capitalize it is to add even more emphasis to say the least.
