When the cloud lifted over the sacred tent the people of Israel FOLLOWED it. And wherever the cloud SETTLED, the people of Israel CAMPED. In this way they TRAVELED at the Lord's command and STOPPED wherever He told them to.
The cloud sometime stayed only overnight, sometimes two days, a month or a year. So they CAMPED or TRAVELED at the Lord's command, and...... THEY DID WHATEVER THE LORD TOLD THEM TO DO (From Numbers 9)
