Commentary and Questions to Ponder

Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting, because the cloud had settled upon it and the Presence of the Lord filled the Tabernacle. (Exodus 40:35) But another passage (Numbers 7:89) says: When Moses went into the Tent of Meeting. There comes a third verse and reconciles (the difference) between them: Because the cloud had settled upon it. Hence you may say: as long as the cloud was upon it he was not able to enter; when the cloud departed (Moses) entered and He spoke with him. (Rashi) Even to the door, because the cloud covered it, and he was not permitted to come into the cloud. Moreover, the Presence of the Lord filled the Tabernacle, so how could he enter it? The reason for this was so that Moses should not go in without permission, but instead God would call him and then he was to come into the midst of the cloud just as He had done at Mount Sinai. (Ramban) Rashi points out that when our verse says that Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting, it was only because the cloud representing Gods presence was upon it. What does Ramban add? What lesson did God want Moses and, by extension all of us to learn? How does this help to shape your understanding of covenant?
