No cart for Koath.

Exd 25:10   "And they shall make an ark of acacia wood; two and a half cubits shall be its length, a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height.
Exd 25:11   "And you shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and out you shall overlay it, and shall make on it a molding of gold all around.
Exd 25:12   "You shall cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in its four corners; two rings shall be on one side, and two rings on the other side.
Exd 25:13   "And you shall make poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold.
Exd 25:14   "You shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, that the ark may be carried by them.
Exd 25:15   "The poles shall be in the rings of the ark; they shall not be taken from it.
Exd 25:16   "And you shall put into the ark the Testimony which I will give you.
Exd 25:17   "You shall make a mercy seat of pure gold; two and a half cubits shall be its length and a cubit and a half its width.
Exd 25:18   "And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat.
Exd 25:19   "Make one cherub at one end, and the other cherub at the other end; you shall make the cherubim at the two ends of it of one piece with the mercy seat.
Exd 25:20   "And the cherubim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat.
Exd 25:21   "You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you shall put the Testimony that I will give you.
Exd 25:22   "And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.

Note: Verse 15, ""The poles shall be in the rings of the ark; they shall not be taken from it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lev 16:14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle [it] with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times. 
Lev 16:15 Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that [is] for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Num 7:1   NOW it came to pass, when Moses had finished setting up the tabernacle, that he anointed it and consecrated it and all its furnishings, and the altar and all its utensils; so he anointed them and consecrated them.
Num 7:2   Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers' houses, who were the leaders of the tribes and over those who were numbered, made an offering.
Num 7:3   And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered carts and twelve oxen, a cart for every two of the leaders, and for each one an ox; and they presented them before the tabernacle.
Num 7:4   Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
Num 7:5   "Accept these from them, that they may be used in doing the work of the tabernacle of meeting; and you shall give them to the Levites, to every man according to his service."
Num 7:6   So Moses took the carts and the oxen, and gave them to the Levites.
Num 7:7   Two carts and four oxen he gave to the sons of Gershon, according to their service;
Num 7:8   and four carts and eight oxen he gave to the sons of Merari, according to their service, under the authority[fn1] of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.
Num 7:9   But to the sons of Kohath he gave none, because theirs was the service of the holy things, which they carried on their shoulders.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Num 4:15   "And when Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary and all the furnishings of the sanctuary, when the camp is set to go, then the sons of Kohath shall come to carry them; but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Num 4:1   THEN the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying:
Num 4:2   "Take a census of the sons of Kohath from among the children of Levi, by their families, by their fathers' house,
Num 4:3   "from thirty years old and above, even to fifty years old, all who enter the service to do the work in the tabernacle of meeting.

Num 4:15   "And when Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary and all the furnishings of the sanctuary, when the camp is set to go, then the sons of Kohath shall come to carry them; but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These are the things in the tabernacle of meeting which the sons of Kohath are to carry.

Now why do you suppose that everything had to be done just as outlined in the above verses?

Well have a look at the NT, verses below

Luk 3:23   Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,

Jhn 8:57   Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?"

You will have noted that it was not the sons of either Gershon, or Merari, that were to carry the arc, but only the sons of Kohath, in other words, only "one of the three".

Can you think of anyone else in Scripture who was, "one of three", who was, "more than thirty", and, "less than fifty", and who carried two pieces of wood on His shoulders which must never be detached from the mercy seat sprinkled with blood, where you go to have your sins forgiven.

Bless you.

Edwin.

Jesus, of course. I find other points of interest. The Mercy seat upon which sat Yahweh was meant to be carried by men, not beasts.
The glory of God was to be enclosed in the flesh of a tent, not in stones. Not till later did God agree to that gift by David. This was God's original plan to dwell in men of flesh and to be carried upon the shoulders of priests who worship Him, but not taken lightly nor disrespected in any way.

To Him Who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, To Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen Rev. 1:5b-6

Contained in our mercy seat is: new life of leaves born again by God from Aaron's rod, once a dead stick, just as we were dead in sins but were given new life by the Holy Spirit; hidden manna of the bread of life, the very words of life spoken by Jesus which sustain us; and even the law was written on our hearts of flesh to be used as God had always intended.

He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy
And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
