2 Chronicles 5:7-10

Context

5:7 The priests brought the ark of the covenant of the Lord to its assigned 1  place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, in the most holy place under the wings of the cherubs. 5:8 The cherubs’ wings extended over the place where the ark sat; the cherubs overshadowed the ark and its poles. 2  5:9 The poles were so long their ends extending out from the ark were visible from in front of the inner sanctuary, but they could not be seen from beyond that point. 3  They have remained there to this very day. 5:10 There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets Moses had placed there in Horeb. 4  (It was there that 5  the Lord made an agreement with the Israelites after he brought them out of the land of Egypt.)

1 tn The word “assigned” is supplied in the translation for clarification.

3 tn Heb “they could not be seen outside.”

4 sn Horeb is another name for Mount Sinai (cf. Exod 3:1).
