31:26 'Take this Torah scroll and place it to the side of the ark of God your Lord's covenant, leaving it there as a witness.
Lakoach et sefer hatorah hazeh vesamtem oto mitsad aron brit-Adonay Eloheychem vehayah-sham becha le'ed.



Commentary:

to the side
  On a shelf attached to the ark (Bava Bathra 14b; Rashi). Others say that it was inside the ark, to the side of the tablets (Bava Bathra 14a). According to the first opinion, the Torah was later placed on the chest of gold sent by the Philistines, which was placed near the ark (Ibid.; see 1 Samuel 6:8).
