In the Bible, the Ark refers to two distinct object:
- Noah's Ark, which is the huge boat that
God ordered Noah to build before the flood. The Ark was used by
God to preserve Noah's family and animals.
- Ark of the Covenant, which is a sacred box that God commanded
Moses to build and place in the Tabernacle, and was later
transfered to the Temple in Jerusalem. This ark is probably lost
when Israel was conquered during the Exile.
