Ark of the Covenant



The golden chest in which were kept the tablets on which the laws of the ancient Israelites were inscribed. The Ark was constructed of Setim wood and coated inside and out with pure gold. Its lid, the 'Propitiatory', similarly so. For many years the Ark was kept in the Temple of Solomon until the fall of Jerusalem when Jeramiah was said to have hidden it in a cave until God could gather his people again.

Despite considerable research into the final resting place of the Ark, to date nobody has succeeding in locating it.
