Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 25:17

_ _ thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold — to serve as a lid, covering it exactly. It was “the propitiatory cover,” as the term may be rendered, denoting that Christ, our great propitiation [1 John 2:2; 1 John 4:10], has fully answered all the demands of the law, covers our transgressions, and comes between us and the curse of a violated law.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Exodus 25:10-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Exodus 25:17

The mercy — seat was the covering of the ark, made exactly to fit the dimensions of it. This propitiatory covering, as it might well be translated, was a type of Christ the great propitiation, whose satisfaction covers our transgressions, and comes between us and the curse we deserve.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Exodus 25:17

And thou shalt make a (g) mercy seat [of] pure gold: two cubits and a half [shall be] the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

(g) There God appeared mercifully to them: and this was a figure of Christ.
