Seforno: Because they realized that the Cloud only departed in order to distance Miriam. 1


Refer to 13:10:1:2.


On what merit did the entire amp of Yisrael wait seven days for Miriam to be cured before moving?


Rashi and Targum Yonasan (on Pasuk 16): On the merit of the short time that she waited 1 to see what would happen to Moshe, 2 when he was cast into the River Nile. 3


See Ba'al ha'Turim.


Targum Yonasan: From here (the fact that the whole of Yisrael -numbering 600,000 - the Clouds of Glory, the Mishkan and the well, waited for Miriam for seven days), we can learn the great reward that is due to Tzadikim for every Mitzvah that they perform.


Rashi: See Sh'mos, 2:4.
