The Ark of The Covenant

The Ark of The Covenant

The Ethiopians kept the traditions of the true Hebrew Isralites pure from biblical times. Solomon the king of Israel caused to be gathered together his counselors, and the elders of his kingdom and he said unto them, “I am not able to make this young man (Menyelek) [consent to dwell here]. And now hearken ye unto me and to what I shall say unto you come let us make him king of the country Ethiopia, let us give [him] your first born children and we shall have two kingdoms. I will rule here with you, and our children shall reign there. And God shall be praised by the race of his people Israel, and be exalted in all the earth. And now, come ye, let us make this young man (Meneyelek) King, and let us send him away with your children, and we will establish them according to our law, and we will direct them and give them commands and send them away to reign there”.

Thus the law of Israel was taken to Ethiopia by Menyelek, the son of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba along with the ark of the covenant, and there it remained.
