Exodus 33:22  (King James Version)
And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

in a clift
Psalms 18:2 ; Solomon 2:3 ; Isaiah 2:21 ; 32:2 1 Corinthians 10:4 ; 2 Corinthians 5:19

cover thee
Deuteronomy 33:12 ; Psalms 91:1 Psalms 91:4
The rock on which Moses stood, and in the clift of which he was sheltered, was doubtless an emblem of Christ; in whose person, character, and salvation alone, sinners may by faith see the glory of God, and live; for there it appears in softened splendour; as the sun, when his brightness is diminished by a mist, is beheld more distinctly by the human eye.--Scott
