ARK OF THE COVENANT HISTORY 

THE ARK OF THE COVENANT

How Large was the Original "Ark of the Covenant"?

The original size of the ARK approximately measured:

45" x 27" x 27"  to 55" x 33" x 33"

Based on 18 to 22 inches = 1 Cubit.   ( most common measurement is 18 inches)

 

The actual Ark of the Covenant that was built with Gods direct instructions as in Exodus and measures: width-(cubit and half), height- (cubit and half) and the length-( 2 and half cubits).

A cubit is universally accepted as being 18 to 22 inches (no one knows for sure).  So the actual Ark from the Bible is approximately 45x27x27 inches to 55x33x33 inches.

 

 
 

In  Exodus (25:10-14,18-19) The Ark of the Covenant is Described as:

 God told him to Frame an Ark (box or chest) of setim wood, the length whereof shall be of two cubits and a half: (see above)  the breadth, a cubit and a half: the height, likewise, a cubit and a half. And thou shalt overlay it with the purest gold within and without...And four golden rings, which thou shalt put at the four corners of the ark...Thou shalt make bars also of setim wood, and shalt overlay them with gold. And thou shalt put them in through the rings that are in the sides of the ark, that it may be carried on them... Thou shalt make also two cherubim's of beaten gold, on the two sides of the oracle. Let one cherub be on the one side, and the other on the other.

The Angels or Cherubs or Cherubim are described in Exodus 37:9 this way:

Spreading their wings, and covering the propitiatory (top of the lid or mercy seat) , and looking one toward the other, and towards it (down) .
