And Moses Took the Tent

35) “And Moses took the tent and set it outside the camp.” Moses said, “Since Israel lied to the Creator and have replaced His glory with a calf, His pawn, Divinity, called ‘tent of meeting,’ is to be in the hands of a trustee until we see who will remain with the pawn.”

36) He said to Joshua, “You will be the trustee between the Creator and Israel and the pawn will remain in your faithful hand, and we will see with whom it remains. What does it say? “His servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, would not depart from the tent.” He gave it to Joshua because with respect to Moses, he was like the moon with respect to the sun. The moon, Malchut, is called “the tent of meeting.” This is why he is worthy of keeping the pawn, which is his own essence. And this is why he “would not depart from the tent.”

37) The Creator said to Moses, “Moses, he is not worthy of doing so. I gave My pawn to Israel, and even though they have sinned before Me, the pawn will be with them and they will not part with it. Would you wish that I should part from Israel and never return to them?” Indeed, Divinity is the pawn in the hands of Israel that He will not leave them. “Rather, return My pawn to them, and for it, I will not leave them wherever they are.”

38) Although Israel sinned before the Creator, they did not leave His pawn and the Creator does not take it from them. Hence, wherever Israel exile, Divinity is with them. This is why it is written, “And I will set My tabernacle among you.”
