Something on the most boring parsha of them all

Took a while, but I finally found something interesting to say about parshas Pekudei.

When the work of the creating the world was done the verse says:

ויכלו השמים והארץ וכל צבאם... ויברך אלהים את
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed... and God blessed [the seventh day]

When the work of creating the tabernacle was done, the verse says

ותכל כל עבדת משכן אהל מועד... ויברך אתם משה׃
Thus all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was completed... and Moshe blessed them.

Parallels are neat.
