{Exodus 30:6} And thou shalt put 5414 z8804 it before 6440 the vail 6532 that x834 [is] by x5921 the ark 727 of the testimony, 5715 before 6440 the mercy seat 3727 that x834 [is] over x5921 the testimony, 5715 where x834 x8033 I will meet 3259 z8735 with thee.
"And thou shalt make a vail [of] blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen of cunning work: with cherubims shall it be made: ... And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the candlestick over against the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south: and thou shalt put the table on the north side." {Exd 26:31-35} + "And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail." {Exd 40:3} + "And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle." {Exd 40:5} + "And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:" {Exd 40:26} + "And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;" {Mtt 27:51} + "And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; ... Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein [was] the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;" {Hbr 9:3-4}
before the mercy seat that is over the testimony:
The words לפני הכפרת אשׁר על העדת, liphney haccapporeth asher al haaiduth, "before the mercy-seat that is over the testimony," are thought to be a repetition of the preceding clause, לפני הפרכת אשׁר על ארן הערת, liphney happarocheth asher al aron haaiduth, "before the vail that is by the ark of the testimony; the word הפרכת, [Strong's H6532], happarocheth, "the vail," being corrupted, by transposing the letters into הכפרת, [Strong's H3727], hacapporeth, "the mercy-seat," and the word ארן, [Strong's H0727], aron, "ark," omitted. This repetition, as Dr. Kennicott observes, places the altar of incense before the mercy-seat, and consequently in the Holy of Holies! Now this could not be, as the altar of incense was attended every day, and the Holy of Holies entered only once in the year. The five words which appear to be a repetition are wanting in twenty-six of Kennicott's and Rossi's manuscripts and in the Samaritan Text. "And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. ... And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which [are] upon the ark of the testimony, of all [things] which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel." {Exd 25:21-22} + "And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that [is] upon the testimony, that he die not:" {Lev 16:13} + "Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat," {1Ch 28:11} + "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." {Hbr 4:16} + "And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly." {Hbr 9:5}
I will:
"And thou shalt beat [some] of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy." {Exd 30:36} + "[This shall be] a continual burnt offering throughout your generations [at] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee. ... And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and [the tabernacle] shall be sanctified by my glory." {Exd 29:42-43} + "And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle of the congregation before the testimony, where I will meet with you." {Num 17:4} - Cross Reference Bible Search
