MOSES ALLOWED TO SEE GOD'S GLORY.

(5-8) The present ascent of Moses to the top of Sinai had two objects:--(1) The repair of the loss occasioned by his breaking the first tables; and (2) the accomplishment of the promise made to him that (under certain restrictions) he should "see God's glory." Combined with this promise were two minor ones--that God would make His "goodness" pass before him, and that He would reveal to him afresh His name. The revelation of the name is recorded in Exodus 34:6-7, the manifestation of the glory in Exodus 34:5. How Moses was enabled to see God's goodness pass before him is not stated. (Comp. Note on Exodus 33:19.)

(5) The Lord descended in the cloud.--When Moses ceased to commune with God, the cloud removed from the door of the "Tent of Meeting," and, as it would seem, disappeared. On Moses reaching the summit of Sinai it once more became visible, "descended" on the spot where Moses was, and "stood with him there."

And proclaimed the name of the Lord.--Comp. Exodus 33:19; and for the terms of the proclamation see Exodus 34:6-7.

Verses 5-8. - THE FULFILMENT BY GOD OF HIS PROMISE TO MOSES. This section coheres closely with the last section of the preceding chapter, and must be regarded, as the historical account of how God fulfilled the promises there made by him to Moses (Exodus 33:19-23). The promises were mainly two -

1. That he would proclaim his name to him afresh; and

2. That he would pass by him, and let him see, after he had passed, what man might see of his glory. The fulfilment of the first promise appears in the long enumeration of attributes contained in vers. 6, 7; the fulfilment of the second is expressed with extreme brevity in the words - ,' And the Lord passed by before him" (ver. 6). Probably no further description could be given of that marvellous manifestation beyond those words in which it was promised (Exodus 33:21-23). Its effects were seen in that permanent reflection of God's glory on the face of Moses, which thenceforth compelled him to wear a veil mostly when he showed himself to the people (vers. 33-35). Verse 5. - The Lord descended in the cloud. The cloudy pillar, which had stood at the door of the Tent of Meeting (Exodus 33:10), was withdrawn while Moses ascended Sinai, and probably disappeared from men's sight. When Moses reached the top, it descended once more from the sky, and stood with him there. Then a voice from the cloud proclaimed the name of the Lord in the manner more fully stated in the ensuing verses.
