Where in Nach (or in the Torah??) are Bnei Israel referred to as Zion? I realize it's mostly used to refer to the place, i.e. Jerusalem/Har Zion/Temple Mount ... and am not interested in references to the place.
I saw the reference once in the Artscroll Talmud, but don't remember where.
Thanks ahead for your help.
p.s. I think there's an allusion in Tehillim, "G' bZion Gadol v'Ram Hu al kol ha'amim" - it compares Zion to ha'amim, implying Zion is a people, too. The b' in "bZion" would thus mean "amongst" i.e. bekerev Zion. But of course it's not an incontrovertible allusion and could still be interpreted as referring to the city. I'd love a clear/explicit reference to Zion meaning the Jewish people.
