Moses and Aaron said to all the sons of Israel, "At
evening you will know that the LORD has brought you
out of the land of Egypt; 7 and
morning you will see the glory of the LORD,
for He hears your grumblings against the LORD; and
what are we, that you grumble against us?"
Exodus 16:6-7 (NAS)
The Hebrew word used in this text (Exodus
16:7, 10) is the word "kabowd," pronounced (kaw-bode');
meaning "figuratively in a good sense, splendor or
copiousness." This Hebrew word is translated into
the English word "glory" or "splendor."
Webster's defines the word "glory" as 'a
great brightness or luster,' and defines the word
"copiousness" as "something taking place on a
large scale or in abundance."
Where Did the Glory of God Appear?
And it came about as Aaron spoke to the whole
congregation of the sons of Israel, that they looked
toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the
LORD appeared in the cloud. Exodus 16:10 (NAS)
This passage does not describe the magnitude of
the great brightness or luster that they saw in the
cloud...but we will begin to see this in the other
examples to follow.
