Exodus 33:21-22

Context
33:21 The Lord said, “Here 1  is a place by me; you will station yourself 2  on a rock. 33:22 When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and will cover 3  you with my hand 4  while I pass by. 5 

1 tn The deictic particle is used here simply to call attention to a place of God’s knowing and choosing.

2 tn Heb “and you will,” or interpretively, “where you will.”

3 sn Note the use in Exod 40:3, “and you will screen the ark with the curtain.” The glory is covered, veiled from being seen.

4 tn The circumstantial clause is simply, “my hand [being] over you.” This protecting hand of Yahweh represents a fairly common theme in the Bible.

5 tn The construction has a preposition with an infinitive construct and a suffix: “while [or until] I pass by” (Heb “in the passing by of me”).
