What does Deuteronomy 31:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Deuteronomy 31:15

And the Lord appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of cloud,
&c.] As he was wont to do, see ( Exodus 33:9 ) ; in which cloud there was a lustre, a brightness, a glory visible, which showed that he was there:

and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle;
it seems to have appeared first in the tabernacle, and then it came out of it, and stood over the door of it, near to which Moses and Joshua were: the Targum of Jonathan adds,

``Moses and Joshua stood without;''

though the former clause, according to Noldius F2, should be "over the tabernacle", or above where the cloud was wont to be.
