So 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 in the 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.
