Bible: Exodus 33:7-11


The Presence of the Lord


Moses took 2  the tent 3  and pitched it outside the camp, at a good distance 4  from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. Anyone 5  seeking 6  the Lord would go out to the tent of meeting that was outside the camp.

33:8 And when Moses went out 7  to the tent, all the people would get up 8  and stand at the entrance to their tents 9  and watch 10  Moses until he entered the tent. 11  33:9 And 12  whenever Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent, and the Lord 13  would speak with Moses. 14  33:10 When all the people would see the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent, all the people, each one at the entrance of his own tent, would rise and worship. 15  33:11 The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, 16  the way a person speaks 17  to a friend. Then Moses 18  would return to the camp, but his servant, Joshua son of Nun, a young man, did not leave the tent. 19
