The Tabernacle, in Hebrew ‘mishkan’ from the Hebrew word which means to dwell, was erected in the desert as a temporary dwelling for God, and ultimately found its permanent resting place in the form of the Temple on Mount Moriah. But getting there took some time. Our Sages trace the movement of the ‘mishkan’ in the Land of Israel: 14 years in Gilgal, 369 years in Shiloh, and another 57 years in Nov and Givon. Altogether, it took 440 years from the entry into the Land of Israel until Solomon built the Temple, the permanent resting place for the presence of the Lord. In this psalm, the psalmists asks God for light and truth to help him return back to the holy mountain, to the resting place of the Lord.
