Only the Mishkan is mentioned, which was temporary.

  • Rabbinic writing probably derived that connection, which is part of Moses’s oral Torah from Sinai – Dr. Shmuel Mar 15 at 21:28

    The Temple also ended up being temporary – b a Mar 16 at 16:58

We find several references in the Torah to a “place where Hashem will choose to dwell His Name there”; as this is in the future tense, and in Sefer Devarim - i.e. long after the Mishkan was built - it must refer to the Beis HaMikdash. Some even use phrases like “amongst your tribes” and “when you come to the land,” which indicate that it’s in Eretz Yisrael.

12:5:

כִּ֠י אִֽם־אֶל־הַמָּק֞וֹם אֲשֶׁר־יִבְחַ֨ר יְהוָ֤ה אֱלֹֽהֵיכֶם֙ מִכָּל־שִׁבְטֵיכֶ֔ם לָשׂ֥וּם אֶת־שְׁמ֖וֹ שָׁ֑ם

Except to the place which Hashem your G-d will choose from amongst your tribes to rest His Name there

12:11:

וְהָיָ֣ה הַמָּק֗וֹם אֲשֶׁר־יִבְחַר֩ יְהוָ֨ה אֱלֹהֵיכֶ֥ם בּוֹ֙ לְשַׁכֵּ֤ן שְׁמוֹ֙ שָׁ֔ם

And it will be the place which Hashem your G-d will choose in it to dwell His Name there

12:14:

כִּ֣י אִם־בַּמָּק֞וֹם אֲשֶׁר־יִבְחַ֤ר יְהוָה֙ בְּאַחַ֣ד שְׁבָטֶ֔יךָ

12:21:

כִּֽי־יִרְחַ֨ק מִמְּךָ֜ הַמָּק֗וֹם אֲשֶׁ֨ר יִבְחַ֜ר יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶיךָ֮ לָשׂ֣וּם שְׁמ֣וֹ שָׁם֒

And you will eat it before Hashem your G-d in the place where He will choose to dwell His Name there [...] If the place which Hashem your G-d will choose to rest His Name there is too far from you, for Hashem has blessed you, you may put it in money, and carry the money in your hand, and go to the place which Hashem your G-d will choose it.

When all of Israel comes to be seen by the face of Hashem your G-d in the place which He will choose

  • It could be talking about mishkan shiloh – Lo ani Mar 17 at 7:24
  • @Loani That’s not “among your tribes,” nor is it a place where Hashem will choose to rest there (Mishkan Shiloh was the Mishkan of the Midbar, so Hashem was already resting His Name there). – DonielF Mar 17 at 14:48
  • Why is it less “among your tribes” than the b”h? Also, HaShem wasn’t resting, per se in the desert- he kept moving around – Lo ani Mar 17 at 18:16
  • @Loani Because Mishkan Shiloh was only in one Shevet, while the Beis HaMikdash property belonged to Klal Yisrael as a whole – DonielF Mar 17 at 18:17

Shmot 25.8:

"וְעָשׂוּ לִי מִקְדָּשׁ וְשָׁכַנְתִּי בְּתוֹכָם׃"

And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them.

Rambam brings it to Halachah (Beit haBchira 1.1)

מצות עשה לעשות בית ליי' מוכן להיות מקריבים בו הקרבנות וחוגגין אליו שלש פעמים בשנה שנאמר ועשו לי מקדש וכבר נתפרש בתורה משכן שעשה משה רבינו והיה לפי שעה שנאמר כי לא באתם עד עתה וגו':

It is a positive commandment to construct a House for God, prepared for sacrifices to be offered within. We [must] celebrate there three times a year, as [Exodus 25:8] states: "And you shall make Me a sanctuary

In short, the Mikdash was a continuation of the Mishkan, and all the commandments of the later apply to the Mikdash also (in general). The prophets (incl. David and Salomon) saw some changes and upgrades, but the idea remained.
