AND YOU SHALL DWELL IN ITS MIDST

We stress “in its midst”, for unlike a king that resides in a palace outside the city in an inaccessible and fortified place where the populace is forbidden to come, we ask that Hashem should “dwell in its midst”, like a King that dwells in his capital city, so that all that visit can see the glory of the King, and whoever makes the proper effort could even succeed in seeing the King himself – this is the great level of Presence of Hashem that we await and request from Hashem.
