Hebrews 9:4-6 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
4 The gold altar that was used for burning incense was in this holy place. The gold-covered sacred chest was also there, and inside it were three things. First, there was a gold jar filled with manna.[a] Then there was Aaron’s walking stick that sprouted.[b] Finally, there were the flat stones with the Ten Commandments written on them. 5 On top of the chest were the glorious creatures with wings[c] opened out above the place of mercy.[d]
Now isn’t the time to go into detail about these things. 6 But this is how everything was when the priests went each day into the first part of the tent to do their duties.
