Bible: 1 Kings 8:6-11

8:6 The priests brought the ark of the Lord’s covenant to its assigned 1  place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, in the most holy place, under the wings of the cherubs. 8:7 The cherubswings extended over the place where the ark sat; the cherubs overshadowed the ark and its poles. 2  8:8 The poles were so long their ends were visible from the holy place in front of the inner sanctuary, but they could not be seen from beyond that point. 3  They have remained there to this very day. 8:9 There was nothing in the ark except the two stone tablets Moses had placed there in Horeb. 4  It was there that 5  the Lord made an agreement with the Israelites after he brought them out of the land of Egypt. 8:10 Once the priests left the holy place, a cloud filled the Lord’s temple. 8:11 The priests could not carry out their duties 6  because of the cloud; the Lord’s glory filled his temple. 7
