Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 9:17

_ _ when the cloud was taken up — that is, rose to a higher elevation, so as to be conspicuous at the remotest extremities of the camp. That was a signal for removal; and, accordingly, it is properly called (Numbers 9:18) “the commandment of the Lord.” It was a visible token of the presence of God; and from it, as a glorious throne, He gave the order. So that its motion regulated the commencement and termination of all the journeys of the Israelites. (See on Exodus 14:19).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 9:15-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 9:17

Was taken up — Or, ascended on high, above its ordinary place, by which it became more visible to all the camp.
