Ark – Aron

In the Ancient Hebrew mind “light” is seen as order as “without light we would be lost in the chaos of darkness”. The Hebrew word for “light” is “or” and is derived from the parent root “ar”. Another word derived from this parent root is the word “aron” formed by adding the “on” to the end of the root “ar”. This word means a “box” and is also related to “order” in the sense that “items are placed within boxes” as a way of “bringing about order”.

The “Ark of the Covenant” is a “box” that is used to “place important items”, including “the stone tablets”, “Aaron’s staff” and “the Manna”, within it to keep them in “order”.
