How did God show his care for the Israelites as they were led to the promised land?
On their journey God made his prescence known to the Israelites by the huge cloud that hung over the meeting tent during the day. At nught the cloud became firey, so that the Israelites could see it. When the cloud moved they followed it. When it did not move, the Israelites remained where they were. The cloud symbolized God was with them.
