Scholars agree that ultimately, nothing in the world deserves the Jewish people's devotion and subjugation but God, for only He is inherently holy, and only to Him are praise and service acceptable. The Mishkan is only holy because God commanded that it be built, and the offerings brought there belong to God alone. The Cherubs must not be the object of any worship in thought or deed. Their only purpose is this: God had the Cherubs for His own measurements. As long as the Cherubs faced eachother, it indicated that the Israelites were performing God's will.
