Bible: Ex 40:34-38

40:34 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 40:35 Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud settled on it and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 40:36 But when the cloud was lifted up 1  from the tabernacle, the Israelites would set out 2  on all their journeys; 40:37 but if the cloud was not lifted up, then they would not journey further until the day it was lifted up. 3  40:38 For the cloud of the Lord was on the tabernacle by day, but fire would be 4  on it at night, in plain view 5  of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
