Bible: Exodus 25:10-22


The Ark of the Covenant


“They are to make an ark 2  of acacia wood – its length is to be three feet nine inches, its width two feet three inches, and its height two feet three inches. 3  25:11 You are to overlay 4  it with pure gold – both inside and outside you must overlay it, 5  and you are to make a surrounding border 6  of gold over it. 25:12 You are to cast four gold rings for it and put them on its four feet, with two rings on one side and two rings on the other side. 25:13 You are to make poles of acacia wood, overlay them with gold, 25:14 and put the poles into the rings at the sides of the ark in order to carry the ark with them. 25:15 The poles must remain in the rings of the ark; they must not be removed from it. 25:16 You are to put into the ark the testimony 7  that I will give to you.

25:17You are to make an atonement lid 8  of pure gold; 9  its length is to be three feet nine inches, and its width is to be two feet three inches. 25:18 You are to make two cherubim 10  of gold; you are to make them of hammered metal on the two ends of the atonement lid. 25:19 Make 11  one cherub on one end 12  and one cherub on the other end; from the atonement lid 13  you are to make the cherubim on the two ends. 25:20 The cherubim are to be spreading their wings upward, overshadowing 14  the atonement lid with their wings, and the cherubim are to face each other, 15  looking 16  toward the atonement lid. 25:21 You are to put the atonement lid on top of the ark, and in the ark you are to put the testimony I am giving you. 25:22 I will meet with you there, 17  and 18  from above the atonement lid, from between the two cherubim that are over the ark of the testimony, I will speak with you about all that I will command you for the Israelites.
