I was told the name of the box in the altar on which the lamp stand sits is called a ‘Mattah’. Since it is a box with three sections I’m curious to know what is inside of it? Is it candle, Bible.. or what? Or is this a secret for only the men/elders that enter and look after the altar?
Question is closed for new answers.
No, there is no secret about it. Mainly, the Mattah is designed after the Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 25:10-22). The most predominant thing there is The Holy Bible (The Testimony of God – see verse 16). Every other thing is immaterial. But the anointing oil is in there, and some people would put candles, salt, etc. The main thing though is the scripture.
