Numbers 9:15–23

The Cloud on the Tabernacle

15 Now on athe day that the tabernacle was erected bthe cloud covered the tabernacle, the ctent of the testimony, and din the evening it was like the appearance of fire over the tabernacle, until morning.

16 So it was continuously; athe cloud would cover it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

17 aWhenever the cloud was lifted from over the tent, afterward the sons of Israel would then set out; and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the sons of Israel would camp.

18 At the 1command of the Lord the sons of Israel would set out, and at the 1command of the Lord they would camp; aas long as the cloud settled over the tabernacle, they remained camped.

19 Even when the cloud lingered over the tabernacle for many days, 1the sons of Israel would keep the Lord’s charge and not set out.

20 If 1sometimes the cloud remained a few days over the tabernacle, aaccording to the 2command of the Lord they remained camped. Then according to the 2command of the Lord they set out.

21 If 1sometimes the cloud 2remained from evening until morning, when the cloud was lifted in the morning, they would move out; or if it remained in the daytime and at night, whenever the cloud was lifted, they would set out.

22 Whether it was two days or a month or a year that the cloud lingered over the tabernacle, staying above it, the sons of Israel remained camped and did not set out; but awhen it was lifted, they did set out.

23 aAt the 1command of the Lord they camped, and at the 1command of the Lord they set out; they kept the Lord’s charge, according to the 1command of the Lord through Moses.
