(16) The testimony which I shall give thee.--The two tables of stone were called "the Testimony" (comp. Exodus 16:34), as being God's witness against sin (Deuteronomy 31:26). As containing them, the ark was called "the ark of the testimony" (Exodus 25:22; Exodus 26:34; Exodus 30:6; Exodus 30:26, &c.; Numbers 4:5; Numbers 7:89; Joshua 4:16). . . . Verse 16. - The testimony which I will give thee, is undoubtedly the Decalogue, or in other words, the two tables of stone, written with the finger of God, and forming his testimony against sin. (Compare Deuteronomy 31:26, 27.) The main intention of the ark was to be a repository in which the two tables should be laid up.
