Ordinances for the prince in his worship,
Ezekiel 46:1 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working-days; but on the sabbath-day it shall be opened, and on the day of the new moon it shall be opened. Ezekiel 46:2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of [that] gate from without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall offer his burnt-offering and his peace-offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate, and shall go forth: but the gate shall not be shut until the evening. Ezekiel 46:3 And the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before Jehovah on the sabbaths and on the new moons. Ezekiel 46:4 And the burnt-offering that the prince shall present unto Jehovah on the sabbath-day shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without blemish. Ezekiel 46:5 And the oblation shall be an ephah for a ram, and the oblation for the lambs as he shall be able to give; and oil, a hin for an ephah. Ezekiel 46:6 And on the day of the new moon, a young bullock without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be without blemish. Ezekiel 46:7 And he shall offer an oblation, an ephah for the bullock, and an ephah for the ram, and for the lambs according to what his hand may attain unto; and oil, a hin for an ephah. Ezekiel 46:8 And when the prince cometh in, he shall come in by the way of the porch of the gate, and he shall go out by the way thereof.
and for the people.
Ezekiel 46:9 And when the people of the land come in before Jehovah in the set feasts, he that cometh in by the way of the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that cometh in by the way of the south gate shall go out by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate by which he came in, but shall go out straight before him. Ezekiel 46:10 And the prince shall come in in the midst of them, when they come in; and when they go out, they shall go out [together]. Ezekiel 46:11 And on the feast-days, and in the solemnities, the oblation shall be an ephah for a bullock and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs as he is able to give; and oil, a hin for an ephah. Ezekiel 46:12 And when the prince shall offer a voluntary burnt-offering or voluntary peace-offerings unto Jehovah, the gate that looketh toward the east shall be opened for him and he shall offer his burnt-offering and his peace-offerings as he did on the sabbath-day, and he shall go out again, and the gate shall be shut after he hath gone out. Ezekiel 46:13 And thou shalt daily offer a burnt-offering unto Jehovah, of a yearling-lamb without blemish: thou shalt prepare it morning by morning. Ezekiel 46:14 And thou shalt prepare an oblation with it every morning, the sixth part of an ephah, and of oil the third part of a hin, to moisten the fine flour: an oblation unto Jehovah continually by a perpetual ordinance. Ezekiel 46:15 They shall offer the lamb, and the oblation, and the oil, every morning for a continual burnt-offering.
An order for the prince's inheritance.
Ezekiel 46:16 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: If the prince give a gift unto any of his sons, it shall be that one's inheritance, for his sons: it shall be their possession by inheritance. Ezekiel 46:17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of his servants, it shall be his until the year of liberty; and it shall return to the prince: to his sons alone shall his inheritance remain. Ezekiel 46:18 And the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance, to thrust them by oppression out of their possession: he shall give his sons an inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not scattered every one from his possession.
The courts for boiling and baking.
Ezekiel 46:19 Then he brought me through the passage which was at the side of the gate, into the holy cells which were for the priests, which looked toward the north; and behold, a place was there at the end westward. Ezekiel 46:20 And he said unto me, This is the place where the priests shall boil the trespass-offering, and the sin-offering, [and] where they shall bake the oblation, that they bring them not out into the outer court, so as to hallow the people. Ezekiel 46:21 And he brought me forth into the outer court, and caused me to pass by the four corners of the court; and behold, in every corner of the court there was a court. Ezekiel 46:22 In the four corners of the court there were enclosed courts, forty [cubits] long and thirty broad: these four corner courts were of one measure. Ezekiel 46:23 And there was a row [of building] round about in them, round about those four, and it was made with boiling places under the rows round about. Ezekiel 46:24 And he said unto me, These are the boiling-houses, where those who do the service of the house shall boil the sacrifice of the people.
