Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the
dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God."
"And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle
of the blood with his finger seven times."
"Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and
sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:"
"And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee."
I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel."
"And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place."
"And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where
I will meet with thee."
"The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,"
"The ark, and the staves
thereof, with the mercy seat, and the vail of the covering,"
"The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat,"
"And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the
staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:"
"And the Lord said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is
upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat."
"And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with Him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off
the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and He spake unto him."
