How to use "Ark of the covenant" in context?
The ark of the covenant is the most sacred and revered object in the Hebrew Bible. It is described as a large chest made of acacia wood overlaid with gold, decorated with cherubim and palm trees. It is considered to be the holiest object in the Jewish religion and the physical embodiment of the covenant between God and His people.
No one is sure when or where the ark came into existence. Some believe it was carried by the Israelites during their exodus from Egypt, while others believe it was created specifically for the purpose of transporting God's presence among His people.
