And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle,
the cloudy pillar descended
From the top of the mount in which Jehovah was:
and stood at the door of the tabernacle;
where Moses was just entered, and in sight of the people, which was a token of grace and favour both to him and them:
and [the Lord] talked with Moses;
not the cloudy pillar, but the Lord in it, as we rightly supply it: what he talked with him about is not said, very probably concerning the children of Israel, their conduct and behaviour, and what was his will further concerning them.
