And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation.
And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation. Whose tent was not far from it, about which the people of Israel were gathered; and from whence they came to the tabernacle, both for shelter and safety, and for advice and instruction how to behave in this crisis; they did not go into it, but stood before it; the Lord being in the cloud over it, they stood in the door of it,
Numbers 16:50; so the Targum of Jonathan,
"and Moses and Aaron came from the congregation to the door of the tabernacle.''
