The Ark at the erection of the Tabernacle and the sacred vessels, as in Exodus 40:17-19
.After its creation by Moses, the Ark was carried by the Israelites during their 40-year voyage in the desert.^ Let us bring the ark of our God back to us: This was the ark of the covenant, which God commanded Moses to make more than 400 years before Davids time.

^ Against the will of God , many of the Israelites went up to the mountain to meet the Amalecites and Chanaanites: "but the ark of the testament of the Lord and Moses departed not from the camp".

^ In their defense, they don't go about bragging on their possession and the rest of the World has only learned of their claim during the last 40 years or so.

^ So they brought the ark of the Lord, and set it in its place in the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it.

^ Near the end of the reign of King David, the genuine Ark was in the tent tabernacle that David pitched for it.

^ And MOSES covered [the Ark] with pure gold, and he made for it poles wherewith to carry it and rings [in which to place them], and they carried it before the people until they brought it into the land of [their] inheritance, which is JERUSALEM, the City of ZION. And when they were crossing the JORDAN and the priests were carrying it, the waters stood upright like a wall until all the people had passed over, and after all the people had passed over the priests passed over bearing the Ark, and they set it down in the city of JUDAH, the land of [their] inheritance.

In Ps 7861 its capture by the Philistines is spoken of, and the Ark is called "the strength and glory of God"; and in Ps 1328, it is spoken of as "the ark of the strength of the Lord." The Ark is mentioned in only one passage in the Apocrypha (2 Macc 2:4-10), which contains a legend to the effect that the prophet Jeremiah, "being warned of God," took the Ark, and the tabernacle, and the altar of incense, and buried them in a cave on Mount Sinai, informing those of his followers who wished to find the place that it should remain unknown "until the time that God should gather His people again together, and receive them unto mercy."
The Ark is called by several names in the Bible, as follows:

The Ark carried into the Temple

The Ark of the Covenant (ארון הברית in Hebrew: aron hab'rit) is described in the Bible as a holy container where the tablets of stone with the Ten Commandments and other holy Israelite pieces are contained.

According to the Biblical account, the Ark was built at the command of God, following Moses' prophetic vision on Mount Sinai (Exodus 25:9-10).[1]

Contents

Terminology

The Hebrew word aron is used in the Bible to designate any type of ark or chest, for any purpose (Genesis 50:26; 2 Kings 12:9, 10). The Ark of the Covenant is distinguished from all others by such titles as "Ark of God" (1 Samuel 3:3), "Ark of the Covenant" (Josh. 3:6; Hebrews 9:4), "Ark of the Testimony" (Ex. 25:22). The Ark (aron kodesh in Hebrew meaning holy cupboard) is a raised cupboard found in Jewish Synagogues which contains the holy Torah scrolls. These are all written by hand and can take years to make. It is always on the wall of the Synagogue which faces towards Jerusalem. When the Ark is opened and the Torah removed for reading everyone stands in respect of God. During some prayers and services the Ark doors an inner curtain (parochet) are kept open.

Description

The Bible describes the Ark as made of acacia or shittah-tree wood. It was a cubit and a half broad and high, and two and a half cubits long (about 130 cm × 78 cm × 78 cm or 4.29 × 2.57 × 2.57 feet, for Egyptian royal cubit was most likely used). The Ark was covered all over with the purest gold.

Footnotes

  1. Further passages: God communicated with Moses "from between the two cherubim" on the Ark's cover (Ex. 25:22). The Ark and its sanctuary were "the beauty of Israel" (Lamentations 2:1).
