And it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole
congregation of the children of Israel
Before he had well done speaking: that they looked toward
they were already in the wilderness of Sin, and they looked
straight forward toward that part of it which was yet before
them, or to the wilderness of Sinai, which was right onward, and
whither they were travelling: and, behold, the glory of the
Lord appeared in the cloud;
which went before them; there was a more than common brightness
in it, an effulgence and beam of light and glory shining in it.
Christ, the brightness of his Father's glory, and the express
image of his person, appeared in it, in some visible displays of
his majesty, which made it very observable to them.
