כג וַיָּבֹא מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן אֶל־אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד וַיֵּצְאוּ וַיְבָרֲכוּ אֶת־הָעָם וַיֵּרָא כְבוֹד־יְהֹוָה אֶל־כָּל־הָעָם׃
9:23 And the Presence of the Lord appeared to all the people
The purpose of the Mishkan in the desert, and the Beit Hamikdash in Yerushalayim, is to serve as a fixed resting place for Hashem’s presence on earth. The commandment to build the Mishkan directly follows the revelation at Sinai, since, according to Ramban, the Mishkan constitutes the continuation of the revelation at Sinai. While the Divine Presence rested briefly on Mount Sinai, it found a long-term home in the Mishkan, and ultimately a permanent dwelling on the Temple Mount in Yerushalayim.
