2 Chronicles 5 - Hey - The Ark of God
And all the elders of Israel came; and the Levites took up
2 Chronicles 5 (vs. 4)
And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons
of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and unto all the
elders of Israel.
Deuteronomy 31:9 (Spoke 5, Cycle 1)
The divine pattern continues here in Chapter 5 of 2 Chronicles. The highlighted words above
appear elsewhere only in the parallel passage from I Kings which records the same event. We have
therefore this KeyLink between the chapter sequence of 2 Chronicles and the order of the books
of the Bible based on the set ("all the elders of Israel", ark) [Verify] :
|KeyLink: The Ark is brought in before the elders of Israel|
|P2 Chronicles( 5 ) PBible( 5 )|
The links between 2 Chronicles 5 and Book 5 are very strong. We have another KeyLink based on the
set (ark, put, tables) [Verify]. As with the KeyLink above, this set is
found elsewhere only in the parallel passage in I Kings.
|Book 5 (Deuteronomy 10.5)
||2 Chronicles 5 (vs. 10)
|And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the
tables in the ark which I had made;
and there they be, as the LORD commanded me.
||There was nothing in the ark save the two tables
which Moses put therein at Horeb, when
the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt.
This KeyLink is actually a first-order projective KeyLink because
both the Chapter and Verse numbers of
2 Chronicles corresponds to the Book and Chapter numbers of Deuteronomy:
|KeyLink: The Tables of the Law are put in the Ark|
|P2 Chronicles( 5, 10 ) PBible( 5, 10 )|
The numbers God used in this KeyLink are quite intriguing, given the obvious association of the Number 5 with
the Torah, which is typified by the Ten Commandmets,
hence the Numbers 5 and 10 in the KeyLink.
