Context
9:23 At the commandment of the Lord they camped, and at the commandment of the Lord they traveled on; they kept the instructions of the Lord according to the commandment of the Lord, by the authority 4  of Moses.

1 tn The sentence uses וְיֵשׁ (vÿyesh) followed by a noun clause introduced with אֲשֶׁר (’asher) to express an existing situation; it is best translated as an adverbial clause of time: “and it was when the cloud was….”

2 tn The word “number” is in apposition to the word “days” to indicate that their stay was prolonged for quite a few days.

3 tn Heb “mouth of the Lord.”

4 tn Heb “hand.”
