Chairs or No Chairs in the Temple – Mormon Quotes

Mosiah 11:11; And the seats which were set apart for the high priests, which were above all the other seats, he did ornament with pure gold; and he caused a breastwork to be built before them, that they might rest their bodies and their arms upon while they should speak lying and vain words to his people.

1 Kings chapters 6-7 says nothing about chairs in the temple.  The only “seat” mentioned is the Mercy Seat which made of gold, covered the Ark of the Covenant and is where the priests would sprinkle blood on the Day of Atonement each year.

The only other time the word “seat” is mentioned concerning holy places is when Jesus sat down at the right hand of God, signifying His work was finished and being on the right side signifying a favored position.
