Exodus 33:7-11

The Tent of Meeting

7Now Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, far off from the camp, and a  he called it the tent of meeting. And everyone who b  sought the  Lord would go out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp. 8Whenever Moses went out to the tent, all the people would rise up, and c  each would stand at his tent door, and watch Moses until he had gone into the tent. 9When Moses entered the tent, the d  pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent, and the  Lord
Hebrew he
would speak with Moses.
10And when all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent, all the people would rise up and worship, each at his tent door. 11Thus f  the  Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. When Moses turned again into the camp, his g  assistant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, would not depart from the tent.
