The Shechinah made ten gradual ascents in passing from place to
place:--From the cover of the ark to the cherub (2 Sam. xxii. 11);
thence to the threshold of the house (Ezek. ix. 3); thence to the
cherubim (Ezek. x. 18); thence to the roof of the Temple (Prov. xxi. 9);
thence to the wall of the court (Amos vii. 7); thence to the altar (Amos
ix. 1); thence to the city (Micah vi. 9); thence to the mount (Ezek. xi.
23); thence to the wilderness (Prov. xxi. 9); whence the Shechinah went
up, as it is said (Hosea v. 15), "I will go and return to my place."

THE TALMUD, _Avoth d Rab. Nathan_, chap. 34.
