Pekudei: Chapter 31

The letters of Yud Hei Vav Hei are like the letters of Adonai


We are told that the mystery of the Tabernacle that is like the mystery of the Ark includes the secrets of the Holy Name Adonai, as can be seen in: "behold, the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord (Adon) of all the earth." Rabbi Shimon explains how the letters in Adonai are like the letters Yud Hei Vav Hei, and tells about their numerical significance. He says that the Tabernacle below on earth and the upper Tabernacle (Adonai) and the third Tabernacle that is even higher (Binah) are all comprised within each other "that the Tabernacle may be one."
