1 Kings 8:10

8:10 a cloud filled the house of the Lord. After the Exodus from Egypt, God led His people through the wilderness with a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night (Ex. 13:21; 40:36–38). At Mount Sinai God revealed Himself in a cloud (Ex. 19:9; 24:15–18). When the tabernacle was constructed God covered it with the cloud of His glory (Ex. 40:34, 35; cf. Lev. 16:2). Now He shows His approval of the newly constructed sanctuary.
