The first promise had rules for the priests’ service. It also had a holy place on earth.
A tent was set up. The first part of this tent was called the holy place. The lamp stand, the table, and the bread of the presence were in this part of the tent.
Behind the second curtain was the part of the tent called the most holy place.
It contained the gold incense burner and the ark of the Lord’s promise. The ark was completely covered with gold. In the ark were the gold jar filled with manna, Aaron’s staff that had blossomed, and the tablets on which the promise[a] was written.
Above the ark were the angels[b] of glory with their wings overshadowing the throne of mercy. (Discussing these things in detail isn’t possible now.)
That is how these two parts of the tent were set up. The priests always went into the first part of the tent to perform their duties.
