‘Filling’ tent

But back to the tent and its "filling". Table, incense altar, and the candlestick tolerated by the staves overlaid with gold, invest in special gold ring, attach to these subjects. In the courtyard of the tabernacle, in front of her, placed sink for washing hands and feet of the priests, the Levites, and the altar of burnt offering, which is a box made of wood, topped with sheet copper. In the upper part of it were at the corners of "horns", which are mounted on a copper grid. Build a fire on the altar, and on the grid above it were placed carcasses of sacrificial animals (sheep, calves), burning the priests who made, as stated in the text, "a sweet savor unto the Lord."

In the background, an unlit room of the tabernacle, the Holy of Holies, was the most important and the most sacred of its subject — the ark. It is in the holy of holies, according to the text, God appeared during intercourse with Moses:

"When Moses went into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, he heard the voice speaking to him from the cover, which is upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubim, and he spoke to him."
("Number", 7, 89)

"And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend …"
("Exodus", 33, 11)

According to the descriptions, the ark was a wooden crate outside and inside topped with gold leaf. Box size — 2,5 x1, 5×1, 5 elbow. On the cover of his figures were stamped in gold cherubs with outstretched wings over the lid facing individuals to each other. The Lord reveals to Moses and spoke to him just between the two cherubim above the mercy seat.
