Exodus 37: The ark and mercy seat are built


Once the tabernacle is done, work starts on the ark, the altar, the mercy seat and all the appointments of the tabernacle. This is basically a verbatim repeat of what we learned in chapter 27

In other words:

The ark of the covenant is built.

Favorite bit:

Nothing. This is a repeat of a previous chapter and rather boring.

Most interesting bit:

That these details must have been important enough to be repeated.

Moral Lesson:

Make sure you hire good and qualified people (Exodus 37)
