the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,


snake me a Sanctuary; that I may Dwell amongst them.

9 According to all that I shew thee, after the PatTern of the Tabernacle, and the Pattern of all the Instruments thereof, even so shall they make it.

10 And they shall make an Ark of Shittim-wood: two Cubits and a half shall be the Length thereof, and a Cubit and a half the Breadth thereof, and a Cubit and a half the Height thereof.

11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure Gold, and shalt make upon it a Crown of (Gold.

16 And thou (halt put into the Ark the Testimony which I shall give thee.

17 And thou shalt make a Mercy-seat of pure Gold: two Cubits and a half shall be the Length thereof, and a Cubit and a half the Breadth thereof.

18 And thou shalt make two Cherubims of Gold: of beaten Work shalt thou make them, in the two Ends of the Mercy-seat.

« Hti. ix. 1 Then verily the first Covenant bad also Ordinances of divine Service, and a Worldly SancTuary.

4 Which had rhe golden Cinser, and the Ark of the Covenant overlaid round about with Gold, wherein was rhe Golden Pot rhat had Manna, and Aaron's Rod that budded, and the Tables of the Covenant.

5 And over it the Cherubims of Glory shadowing the Mercy-seat.

6 Now when these Things were thus ordained, the Priksts went always into the fiist Tabernacle, accomplishing the Service of God:
