Exodus 37: The ark and mercy seat are built


Synopsis:

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)
