Numbers 9:20 Parallel
CommentaryNumbers 9:20 Parallel Commentaries
If the cloud remained over the Tabernacle for a long time, the Israelites stayed and performed their duty to the LORD.
Sometimes the cloud stayed only overnight and lifted the next morning. But day or night, when the cloud lifted, the people broke camp and moved on.
For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever, and he will guide us until we die.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
