\\INTRODUCTION TO EXODUS 33\\

This chapter informs us, that the Lord refusing to go with the people,
only sending an angel with them, they are filled with concern, and
troubled, \\#Ex 33:1-6\\. Moses upon this pitched the tabernacle
without the camp, where everyone that sought the Lord went; Moses
entered into it himself, and the Lord talked to him in a friendly
manner in the cloudy pillar that stood at the door of it, and the
people worshipped, every man at his own tent door; all which foreboded
good, and tended to reconciliation, \\#Ex 33:7-11\\. Moses improved the
opportunity, and entreats the presence of God to go with them, which
was granted, \\#Ex 33:12-17\\ and that he might have a sight of the
glory of God; and this is promised to pass before him, he being put
into the cleft of the rock, \\#Ex 33:18-23\\.
