Nehemiah 9:20 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The pillar of the cloud departed not from them - מעליהם mealeyhem, "from over them." I have already had occasion to observe that this miraculous cloud, the symbol of the Divine presence, assumed three different positions while accompanying the Israelitish camp:
1. As a cloud in the form of a pillar, it went before them when they journey, to point out their way in the wilderness.
2. As a pillar of fire, it continued with them during the night, to give them light, and be a rallying point for the whole camp in the night season.
3. As an extended cloud, it hovered over them in their encampments, to refresh them with its dews, and to keep them from the ardours of the sun.

1 Corinthians 10:3
They all ate the same spiritual food
The Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a land that was settled; they ate manna until they reached the border of Canaan.
I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone.
For many years you were patient with them. By your Spirit you warned them through your prophets. Yet they paid no attention, so you gave them into the hands of the neighboring peoples.
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
Then his people recalled the days of old, the days of Moses and his people-- where is he who brought them through the sea, with the shepherd of his flock? Where is he who set his Holy Spirit among them,
This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.'
