(35) Moses was not able to enter into the tent.--Apparently, Moses, seeing the cloud descend, as it had been wont to do upon the temporary "tent of meeting" (Exodus 33:9), endeavoured to re-enter the Tabernacle which he had quitted, but was unable; the "glory" forbade approach. (Comp. the effect of the "glory" when it descended on Solomon's Temple, 1Kings 8:11; 2Chronicles 5:14; 2Chronicles 7:2.)

Verse 35. - Moses was not able to enter. It is implied that he wished - nay, tried - to enter - but the "glory" prevented him. (Compare 1 Kings 8:11; 2 Chronicles 5:14; 2 Chronicles 7:2.) Because the cloud abode thereon. It was not the external "cloud" which prevented Moses from entering, but the internal "glory." But the two are regarded as inseparable.
