The ark of the covenant housed a small pot of manna (Ex. 16:32-33), Aaron’s staff (Num. 17:10), and the two tables of stone containing the Ten Commandments. See the reference to these items in Hebrews 9:4b.
Covering the ark was a lid designated as the mercy-seat (Ex. 25:17). Above the mercy-seat were two golden cherubim (plural of “cherub”), representing a certain order of angels (vv. 18ff; cf. Gen. 3:24). Let us ponder several of these items.

Some writers strongly object to the name Jehovah, as found in the American Standard Version (1901). Is this criticism justified? Are these critics consistent? Look at this matter carefully.
The doctrine of baptism, as set forth in the New Testament, is scarcely recognizable in the modern world of “Christendom.” How did this strange and unwarranted change come about? Study this issue with us.
