God gives some further instruction regarding the celebration of Passover. Verse 9 has some interesting imagery. The Israelites are told that God’s law, or Word, should be bound to their foreheads and hands and in their mouths. So God’s Word should be closely connected to what they think, do, take in and speak. God then begins to guide the people using a cloud in daytime and fire by night.

Being led by God in such a direct way with a cloud sounds like a good situation. I don’t have a cloud to visibly guide me, but I can still make God’s Word an integral part of my thinking, actions and speech.
