Then according to the [c]command of the Lord they set out. 21 If [d]sometimes the cloud [e]remained from evening until morning, when the cloud was lifted in the morning, they would move out; or if it remained in the daytime and at night, whenever the cloud was lifted, they would set out. 22 Whether it was two days or a month or a year that the cloud lingered over the tabernacle, staying above it, the sons of Israel remained camped and did not set out; but (B)when it was lifted, they did set out.
