Treasury of Scripture

There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt.

save

2 Kings 6:11
Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not shew me which of us is for the king of Israel?

Exodus 31:18
And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Exodus 32:15,16,19
And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written…

when.

Exodus 19:5
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Exodus 24:7,8
And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient…

Deuteronomy 29:1,10-14
These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb…









(10) Put therein.--Heb., which Moses put--in Horeb. Kings is fuller and clearer: which Moses placed there in Horeb. The chronicler has substituted "put" for "placed;" perhaps remembering Exodus 40:20 : "And he put the testimony into the ark." The word sh?m, "there" or "therein," has fallen out of the text.

When the Lord made a covenant.--Which (the two Tables i.e., the Covenant) the Lord covenanted with the sons of Israel. (Comp. 2Chronicles 6:11 : "the Ark wherein is the covenant of the Lord," 1Kings 8:21.)

Verse 10. - Nothing in the ark save the two tables (see Deuteronomy 10:5; and Exodus 40:20; then Exodus 24:12; 25:16; 31:18; 32:19; 34:1, 4, 29; 40:20). The stones were therefore now, in Solomon's time, nearly four hundred and ninety years old. Why the "golden pot" and "Aaron's rod" (Hebrews 9:4) were not there does not appear. The language of the Epistle is partially confirmed, at any rate in harmony with Exodus 16:34; Numbers 17:10. Possibly they may have now been removed by Solomon, but it seems very unlikely that, if so, no mention of the removal is made. On the other hand, the "book of the Law" had not been consigned to the ark, but to a place "by the side of" it (Deuteronomy 31:25-27).
