2 And how that the Prophet hauing giuen them the law, charged them not to forget the commaundements of the Lord, and that they should not erre in their minds, when they see images of siluer, and gold, with their ornaments.
4 It was also contained in the same writing, that the Prophet being warned of God, commanded the Tabernacle, and the Arke to goe with him, as he went forth into the mountaine, where Moises climed vp, and sawe the heritage of God.
8 Then shall the Lord shew them these things, and the glory of the Lord shall appeare, and the cloud also as it was shewed vnder Moises, and as when Solomon desired that the place might be honourably sanctified.
10 And as when Moises prayed vnto the Lord, the fire came down from heauen, and consumed the sacrifices: euen so prayed Solomon also, and the fire came downe from heauen, and consumed the burnt offerings.
13 The same things also were reported in the writings, and commentaries of Neemias, and how he founding a librarie, gathered together the acts of the Kings, and the Prophets, and of Dauid, and the Epistles of the Kings concerning the holy gifts.
18 As he promised in the lawe, will shortly haue mercy vpon vs, and gather vs together out of euery land vnder heauen into the holy place: for he hath deliuered vs out of great troubles, and hath purified the place.
21 And the manifest signes that came from heauen, vnto those that behaued themselues manfully to their honour for Iudaisme: so that being but a few, they ouercame the whole country, and chased barbarous multitudes,
25 We haue beene carefull, that they that will read might haue delight, and that they that are desirous to commit to memorie, might haue ease, and that all, into whose hands it comes might haue profit.
29 For as the master builder of a new house, must care for the whole building: but hee that vndertaketh to set it out, and paint it, must seeke out fit things for the adorning thereof: euen so I thinke it is with vs.

I find the books of Maccabees fascinating the fact that men are looking for the arc and it says in Macc chapter 2 verse 7 that it shall remain unknown until God regathers his people and receive them unto mercy

Praise God! After reading Ron Wytt's articles about the Ark covenant, I asked myself who kept it there and how? Then I started searching for it in the bible. I find the only place (Maccabees 2:4-8) as an answer to my question. I think verses 7 and 8 are fulfilled as Jesus came as God's mercy to gather us together. Also we saw God's glory and cloud those days, in the times of baptism, transfiguration and Ascension. Now I have a doubt, is it the same place where Ron found the Ark? Also many people do not accept Maccabees as a canonical scripture. Why? May I expect the answer from you? Rose.
