And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

7:89 the mercy seat. See Exodus 25:22; 33:9,11. The blood of atonement was to be sprinkled upon the mercy seat (Leviticus 16:14,15), where God’s presence was manifested between the two cherubim. Note also Romans 3:25, where “propitiation” (Greek hilasterion), speaking of the atoning blood of Christ, also means “mercy seat.”
