The Ark Bears its Bearers
According to the sages, then, it was only an optical illusion, when the four men seemed to have been carrying the Ark. In fact, “The Ark bore its bearers”. However, in my opinion, this sentence expresses more than a simple, physical meaning. It means that the Torah upholds those who uphold it. There is also significance to the fact that the inner Ark was made of wood. The Torah is also referred to as: “A tree of life to those who uphold it” (Proverbs 3, 18).
