Numbers 9:15 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
9:15 Namely, the tent of the testimony - Or, the tabernacle above the tent of the testimony, that is, that part of the tabernacle in which was the testimony, or the ark of the testimony; for there the cloudy pillar stood. This was an evident token of God's special presence with, and providence over them. And this cloud was easily distinguished from other clouds, both by its peculiar figure and by its constant residence in that place. Fire - That they might better discern it and direct themselves and their journeys or stations by it. Had it been a cloud only, it had scarce been visible by night: And had it been a fire only, it would have been scarce discernable by day. But God was pleased to give them sensible demonstrations, that he kept them night and day.
The LORD went ahead of them. He guided them during the day with a pillar of cloud, and he provided light at night with a pillar of fire. This allowed them to travel by day or by night.
And the LORD did not remove the pillar of cloud or pillar of fire from its place in front of the people.
"Set up the Tabernacle on the first day of the new year.
So the Tabernacle was set up on the first day of the first month of the second year.
Then the cloud covered the Tabernacle, and the glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle.
The cloud of the LORD hovered over the Tabernacle during the day, and at night fire glowed inside the cloud so the whole family of Israel could see it. This continued throughout all their journeys.
As they moved on each day, the cloud of the LORD hovered over them.
