LEVITICUS 9:23

And Moshe and Aharon went into the Tent of Meeting of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of Hashem appeared unto all the people. LEVITICUS 9:23 (The Israel Bible™)

The purpose of the Tabernacle in the desert and Temple in Jerusalem was to serve as a fixed resting place for God’s presence on Earth. It is for this reason that the command to build the Tabernacle, the ‘Mishkan,’ follows immediately after the revelation at Sinai, for the Tabernacle was 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.’ After the completion of the inauguration ceremony of the ‘Mishkan,’ Moses and Aaron entered the Tent of Meeting. As they left to bless the people, “the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.”
