"If you follow My decrees
and observe My commands and carry them out ...
I will place My mishkan in your midst
and My soul will not abhor you.
I will move about in your midst:
I will be your God, and you will be My people....
But if you spurn My decrees,
and if your soul abhors My judgments,
so that you do not carry out My commands,
so that you break My covenant ...
I will set My face against you:
you will be routed by your enemies
and your foes will dominate you.
You will flee though none pursues.
And if, for all that, you do not obey Me,
I will discipline you more, seven for your sins ...
I will discipline you Myself, seven for your sins ...
and I will scatter you among the nations....
Yet even at this point,
when they are in the land of their enemies,
I will not spurn them or abhor them so as to destroy them,
breaking My covenant with them,
for I am YHVH, their God. "
(Leviticus 26, passim)
"I will place My mishkan in your midst ..."
My mishkan is Shekhinah,
My mishkan is My mashkon,
My dwelling is My pledge,
who has been seized on account of Israel's sins.
