The Lord Dwells Among His People

The ceremonial and ethical laws were given so that a sinless, holy God could dwell among His people.

So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it. Therefore do not defile the land which you inhabit, in the midst of which I dwell; for I the Lord dwell among the children of Israel.’ ” Numbers 35:33‭-‬34 NKJV
