And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,
So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

8:10 the cloud. This is the same glory cloud that filled the tabernacle when it was completed and consecrated almost half a millennium previously (Exodus 40:34,35).

8:11 glory of the LORD. The glory of the Lord, the shekinah (Exodus 13:21), was in a remarkable sense, indicative of the presence of the Holy Spirit. When the eternal “Word was made flesh, and dwelt [literally ‘tabernacled’] among us” (John 1:14), then “we beheld His glory...full of grace and truth.” In still another parallel, each believer, whose “body is the temple of the Holy Ghost,” is exhorted to “glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (I Corinthians 6:19,20).
