“And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:5 And over it were the cherubim of glory - Over which the glory of God used to appear. Some suppose each of these had four faces, and so represented the Three - One God, with the manhood assumed by the Second Person. With out - spread wings shadowing the mercy - seat - Which was a lid or plate of gold, covering the ark.
Heb 9:5 And over it the cherubims of glory. Angels. See Ge 3:24. These symbolic figures, made of gold, hovered over the lid of the ark, called the mercy seat. Cannot now speak particularly. Cannot discuss the significance of each of these objects.
