281) Here it is written, “You make him joyful with gladness,” and there it is written, “And Jethro rejoiced.” As the joy there was for Israel’s redemption from Egypt, here it is also for redemption, since the Creator is destined to raise the Assembly of Israel, Malchut, from the dust, to keep it in the right, and to renew her the renewal of the moon with the sun.

282) “You make him joyful with gladness in Your face.” “In Your face” means that He will be before you, and will be in gladness before you, in that wholeness that will be completed in the future, for when the Temple was ruined, Malchut was emptied of all that was filled, as it is written, “She who bore seven is dejected.” It is also written, “I shall be filled with she who is ruined.” And in the future, she will return, be renewed, and refilled.

283) When Moses erected the tabernacle, he looked at all those works that they did, that they were as they should be, and then he erected it. And each of those works that were in the tabernacle was brought to Moses, as it is written, “The virgins, her companions who follow her, will be brought to You.” “Brought to You” is as it is written, “And they brought the tabernacle to Moses,” the seven maidens that bring Malchut, the tabernacle, to Moses, ZA.

284) “They brought the tabernacle” because there was a Zivug of Moses, ZA. Hence, “And they brought the tabernacle,” Malchut, “To Moses,” as a bride comes to the groom’s house, since first, the bride must be brought to the groom, as it is written, “I have given my daughter to this man for a wife.” And then he comes to her, as it is written, “And he came to her.” It is also written, “And Moses came to the tent of meeting,” to Malchut.

285) Moses could not come to the tent of meeting because the cloud was on it, since she was fixing herself like a woman who fixes herself and adorns herself for her husband. And when she is fixing herself, it is inappropriate for her husband to come to her. Hence, Moses could not come to the tent of meeting, for the cloud was on it. For this reason, “And they brought the tabernacle to Moses.” It is also written, “And Moses saw all the work.”

286) The color azure was on all the works of the tabernacle because azure is a color to be adorned in all the colors, for it is the black light in the candle, to which the white light clings, as it is written, “And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like the engravings of a signet: ‘Holy to the Lord,’ and placed on it an azure thread.” And it is written, “And you shall make a plate of pure gold and shall engrave on it, like the engravings of a seal, ‘Holy to the Lord,’ and you shall put it on an azure thread.”
