Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

5:11-14 God took possession of the temple; he filled it with a cloud. Thus he signified his acceptance of this temple, to be the same to him that the tabernacle of Moses was, and assured his people that he would be the same in it. Would we have God dwell in our hearts, we must leave room for him; every thing else must give way. The Word was made flesh; and when he comes to his temple, like a refiner's fire, who may abide the day of his coming? May he prepare us for that day.

Pulpit Commentary

Verse 14. - The priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud (so Exodus 40:34, 35).
