27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these Words : for after the Tenour of these Words I have made a Covenant with thee, and with Ifrael.

28 And he was there with the LORD forty Days and forty Nights ; he did neither eat Bread, nor drink Water : and he wrote upon the Tables the Words of the COVENANT, the Ten COMMANDMENTS.

37 But if the CLOUD were not taken up, then they journeyed not, till the Day that it was taken up.

38 For the Cloud of the LORD was upon the TABERNACLE by Day, and Fire was on it by Night, in the Sight of all the House of Israel, throughout all their Journeys.
