Ark of the Covenent

The ark was made of shittim wood overlaid with gold. It was 2 1/2 cubits (3 3/4 feet) long, 1 1/2 cubits (2 1/4 feet) wide, and 1 1/2 cubits (2 1/4 feet) tall. It had a crown around it and four rings, one in each corner, for the staves that were used to carry it. The lid to the ark was the mercy seat, a solid piece of gold the same dimensions as the top of the ark. On top of the mercy seat, on either side was an angel made of pure beaten gold. (Exodus 25:10-20)
