||God went before them by day with a pillar of cloud, to guide them along the way. By night it appeared as a pillar of fire, providing them with light. They could thus travel day and night.
V'Adonay holech lifneyhem yomam be'amud anan lanchotam haderech velaylah be'amud esh leha'ir lahem lalechet yomam valaylah.
||The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire at night never left [their position] in front of the people.
Lo-yamish amud he'anan yomam ve'amud ha'esh laylah lifney ha'am.
