So then the first covenant had regulations for the priests' service and the holy place on earth.
They pitched the first tent called the holy place. It contained the lampstand, the table, and the loaves of bread presented to God.
There was a tent behind the second curtain called the holy of holies.
It had the gold altar for incense and the chest containing the covenant, which was covered with gold on all sides. In the chest there was a gold jar containing manna, Aaron's rod that budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant.
Above the chest there were magnificent winged creaturesa casting their shadow over the seat of the chest, where sin is taken care of. Right now we can't talk about these things in detail.
When these things have been prepared in this way, priests enter the first tent all the time as they perform their service.
