Hiding the ark

One unanswered question regarding the Bible is the location of the Ark of the Covenant.  I recently made this post, The ark of the covenant, in which I suggested that it is better that the ark remain hidden.  If it were found it might become an object of worship.  This morning, in reading through the Bible, I found something which suggests the ark will never be found.

And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding. And when you have multiplied and been fruitful in the land, in those days, declares the Lord, they shall no more say, “The ark of the covenant of the Lord.” It shall not come to mind or be remembered or missed; it shall not be made again.At that time Jerusalem shall be called the throne of the Lord, and all nations shall gather to it, to the presence of the Lord in Jerusalem, and they shall no more stubbornly follow their own evil heart.  (Jeremiah 3:15-17)

Not only will no one find the ark, no one will ever make another ark to replace it.  I have come to the conclusion that the ark was not lost but was deliberately hidden by God to make sure it never becomes a source of idolatry.
