Did the צַלְעֹ֣ת הָאָרֹ֑ן Tsalot HaAron in Shemot 25:14 refer to the sidewalls (left & right of Keruvim)?
HaKohanim הַכֹּהֲנִים֙ The-Priests in Devarim 31:9 (Deuteronomy 31:9) were required to carry HaAron הָאָרֹ֑ן (The-Ark) by lifting the poles kept in the rings attached to צַלְעֹ֣ת הָאָרֹ֑ן Tsalot HaAron [Shemot 25:14]. The צַלְעֹ֣ת Tsalot (side walls) refers to the “Length” of HaAron הָאָרֹ֑ן The-Ark, at the left & right of the Keruvim (not behind them). - Correct? -
4 Kohathite shoulders support the 4 corners of HaAron. The poles of HaAron would be parallel along the 2.5 cubits Length. The pole (left of the Keruv) rests on the right-shoulders of Kohathites (standing to the left of the Keruv). The pole (right of the Keruv) rests on the left-shoulders of the Kohathites (standing to the right of the Keruv). - Correct?
HaAron was traditionally carried on the shoulders of Benei Qehat בְנֵ֥י קְהָ֖ת the Sons of Kohath (Kohathites) stated וְלִבְנֵ֥י קְהָ֖ת לֹ֣א נָתָ֑ן כִּֽי־עֲבֹדַ֤ת הַקֹּ֙דֶשׁ֙ עֲלֵהֶ֔ם בַּכָּתֵ֖ף יִשָּֽׂאוּ in Numbers / Bamidbar 7:9. - If the Sons of Qehat & HaKohanim were approaching you with HaAron (without the blue wool cloth covering), you would see a Keruv's back bowing to דְבַר־יְ֠הֹוָה the Word of YHVH. - Correct?
