Which had the goldencenser,and the ark of the covenantoverlaid round about with gold,whereinwas the goldenpot that hadmanna,andAaron'srod that budded , and the tables of the covenant;5Andoverit the cherubims of gloryshadowing the mercyseat;ofwhich we cannotnowspeakparticularly .
6Now when these thingswerethusordained , the priestswentalwaysintothefirsttabernacle,accomplishing the service of God.
7Butinto the second went the high priestaloneonce every year,notwithoutblood,which he offeredforhimself,and for the errors of the people:8
