See the description of the Cherubim in Ex. 25: 18--20. 1 K. 8: 6, 7. 1 Chron. 28: 18.

"IXaarrjgiov, understood in reference to this, might be translated, the place or instrument of propitiation, or (with our English translators) mercy-seat. It was over this, that the divine glory was seen, i. e. a supernatural, excessive brightness; and hence God was supposed to be seated on it, as his throne, and from it to dispense his mercy, when atonement was made for the sins of the people, by sprinkling it with blood. Hence our appellation, mercy seat. J7(W wp.... fiiuog, respecting which thin...
