Cloud \Cloud\ (kloud), n. [Prob. fr. AS. cl[=u]d a rock or
hillock, the application arising from the frequent
resemblance of clouds to rocks or hillocks in the sky or
air.]
1. A collection of visible vapor, or watery particles,
suspended in the upper atmosphere.
[1913 Webster]

I do set my bow in the cloud. --Gen. ix. 13.
[1913 Webster]

Note: A classification of clouds according to their chief
forms was first proposed by the meteorologist Howard,
and this is still substantially employed. The following
varieties and subvarieties are recognized:
(a) {Cirrus}. This is the most elevated of all the forms
of clouds; is thin, long-drawn, sometimes looking like
carded wool or hair, sometimes like a brush or room,
sometimes in curl-like or fleecelike patches. It is
the cat's-tail of the sailor, and the mare's-tail of
the landsman.
(b) {Cumulus}. This form appears in large masses of a
hemispherical form, or nearly so, above, but flat
below, one often piled above another, forming great
clouds, common in the summer, and presenting the
appearance of gigantic mountains crowned with snow. It
often affords rain and thunder gusts.
(c) {Stratus}. This form appears in layers or bands
extending horizontally.
(d) {Nimbus}. This form is characterized by its uniform
gray tint and ragged edges; it covers the sky in
seasons of continued rain, as in easterly storms, and
is the proper rain cloud. The name is sometimes used
to denote a raining cumulus, or cumulostratus.
(e) {Cirro-cumulus}. This form consists, like the cirrus,
of thin, broken, fleecelice clouds, but the parts are
more or less rounded and regulary grouped. It is
popularly called mackerel sky.
(f) {Cirro-stratus}. In this form the patches of cirrus
coalesce in long strata, between cirrus and stratus.
(g) {Cumulo-stratus}. A form between cumulus and stratus,
often assuming at the horizon a black or bluish tint.
-- {Fog}, cloud, motionless, or nearly so, lying near
or in contact with the earth's surface. -- {Storm
scud}, cloud lying quite low, without form, and driven
rapidly with the wind.
[1913 Webster]

2. A mass or volume of smoke, or flying dust, resembling
vapor. "A thick cloud of incense." --Ezek. viii. 11.
[1913 Webster]

3. A dark vein or spot on a lighter material, as in marble;
hence, a blemish or defect; as, a cloud upon one's
reputation; a cloud on a title.
[1913 Webster]

4. That which has a dark, lowering, or threatening aspect;
that which temporarily overshadows, obscures, or
depresses; as, a cloud of sorrow; a cloud of war; a cloud
upon the intellect.
[1913 Webster]

5. A great crowd or multitude; a vast collection. "So great a
cloud of witnesses." --Heb. xii. 1.
[1913 Webster]

6. A large, loosely-knitted scarf, worn by women about the
head.
[1913 Webster]

{Cloud on a} (or the) {title} (Law), a defect of title,
usually superficial and capable of removal by release,
decision in equity, or legislation.

{To be under a cloud}, to be under suspicion or in disgrace;
to be in disfavor.

{In the clouds}, in the realm of facy and imagination; beyond
reason; visionary.
[1913 Webster]


Cloud \Cloud\ (kloud), v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Clouded}; p. pr. &
vb. n. {Clouding}.]
1. To overspread or hide with a cloud or clouds; as, the sky
is clouded.
[1913 Webster]

2. To darken or obscure, as if by hiding or enveloping with a
cloud; hence, to render gloomy or sullen.
[1913 Webster]

One day too late, I fear me, noble lord,
Hath clouded all thy happy days on earth. --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

Be not disheartened, then, nor cloud those looks.
--Milton.
[1913 Webster]

Nothing clouds men's minds and impairs their honesty
like prejudice. --M. Arnold.
[1913 Webster]

3. To blacken; to sully; to stain; to tarnish; to damage; --
esp. used of reputation or character.
[1913 Webster]

My sovereign mistress clouded so, without
My present vengeance taken. --Shak.

Cloud
The Hebrew so rendered means "a covering," because clouds cover
the sky. The word is used as a symbol of the Divine presence, as
indicating the splendour of that glory which it conceals (Ex.
16:10; 33:9; Num. 11:25; 12:5; Job 22:14; Ps. 18:11). A "cloud
without rain" is a proverbial saying, denoting a man who does
not keep his promise (Prov. 16:15; Isa. 18:4; 25:5; Jude 1:12).
A cloud is the figure of that which is transitory (Job 30:15;
Hos. 6:4). A bright cloud is the symbolical seat of the Divine
presence (Ex.29:42, 43; 1 Kings 8:10; 2 Chr. 5:14; Ezek. 43:4),
and was called the Shechinah (q.v.). Jehovah came down upon
Sinai in a cloud (Ex. 19:9); and the cloud filled the court
around the tabernacle in the wilderness so that Moses could not
enter it (Ex. 40:34, 35). At the dedication of the temple also
the cloud "filled the house of the Lord" (1 Kings 8:10). Thus in
like manner when Christ comes the second time he is described as
coming "in the clouds" (Matt. 17:5; 24:30; Acts 1:9, 11). False
teachers are likened unto clouds carried about with a tempest (2
Pet. 2:17). The infirmities of old age, which come one after
another, are compared by Solomon to "clouds returning after the
rain" (Eccl. 12:2). The blotting out of sins is like the sudden
disappearance of threatening clouds from the sky (Isa. 44:22).

Cloud, the pillar of, was the glory-cloud which indicated
God's presence leading the ransomed people through the
wilderness (Ex. 13:22; 33:9, 10). This pillar preceded the
people as they marched, resting on the ark (Ex. 13:21; 40:36).
By night it became a pillar of fire (Num. 9:17-23).
