Quote to Consider:
Randall Price: "As the Ark travelled and
camped with the Israelites, its usual position was in the middle of
the assembled tribes (Num. 2:17; 10:14-28). This was to remind
Israel that God was fulfilling His promise to dwell in their midst.
Joshua 3:3-4 tells us that at the first crossing of the Jordan, the
Ark was repositioned at the head of the tribes, and all Israel was
commanded to follow it. The reason given in the text is ‘that you
may know the way by which you shall go, for you have not passed this
way before.’ Thus, the Ark provided both divine guidance and
powerful protection for the Israelites. It served as a focus for
their faith in an unknown and untried place. God was not to be in
the background of their lives but always in the forefront—the One
who must be followed by faith when passing through the deep waters
of life" (The Ark of the Covenant, p. 61).
