Ordinances for the prince in his worship,
Ezekiel 46:1 Thus sayeth the Lorde God: the dore of the ynnermer courte towarde the East, shall be shut the .vi. worcke dayes: but in the Sabboth & in daye of the newe Moone, it shalbe opened. Ezekiel 46:2 Then shall þt prynce come vnder the dore porche, and stande styll wythout by the dore cheke. So the prestes shall offre vp hys burnt and healthofferynges. And he shall worshyppe at the dore poste and go hys waye forth agayne: but the dore shall nomore be shut tyll the euenynge. Ezekiel 46:3 On the same maner shall the people of the lande also do their worshipe before the Lord, wythout thys dore vpon the Sabbathes and new Moones. Ezekiel 46:4 This is now the burntofferynge, that the prynce shall brynge vnto the Lorde vpon the Sabboth: syxe lambes without blemyshe, and a ram without blemyshe, Ezekiel 46:5 and an Ephah for a meatoffrynge, wyth the ram. As for the lambes, he maye geue as many meatoffrynges to them, as he will, and an Hin of oyle to an Ephah. Ezekiel 46:6 In the daye of the new moneth, it shall be a yong bullocke without blemysh, syxe lambes & a ram also wythout blemysh. Ezekiel 46:7 With the bullocke he shall geue an Ephah, and wyth the ram an Ephah also for a meatofferynge: but to the lambes, what he maye come by: And euer an Hin of oyle to an Ephah. Ezekiel 46:8 When the prynce commeth, he shal go vnder the dore porche, and euen there departe forth agayne.
and for the people.
Ezekiel 46:9 But when the people of the lande come before the Lorde in the hye solempne feaste, as many as come in by the North dore to do worshyppe, shall goo oute agayne at the South dore. And they that come in at the South dore, shall go forth agayne at the North dore. There shall none go oute at the dore where he came in, but shal goo forth ryght ouer on the other syde, Ezekiel 46:10 & the prince shall go in and out amonge them. Ezekiel 46:11 Vpon the solempne and hye feaste dayes, this shalbe the meatofferinge: An Epha to a bullock and an Epha to a ram, & to the lambes: as many as he wyll, but euer an Hin of oyle to an Epha. Ezekiel 46:12 Now when the prynce bryngeth a burntofferynge or an healthofferynge wyth a fre wyll vnto the Lorde, the east dore shalbe opened vnto him, þt he maye do with hys burnt and healthofferynges, as he doth vpon the Sabboth, and when he goeth forth, the dore shall be shutt after hym agayne. Ezekiel 46:13 He shall daylie brynge vnto the Lorde a lambe of a yeare olde without blemyshe for a burntoffringe: this shall he do euerye mornynge. Ezekiel 46:14 And for a meatofferynge he shall geue the syxte parte of an Epha, and the thyrde parte of an Hin of oyle (to myngle wyth the cakes) euery mournynge. Yee thys shalbe a daylye meatofferinge vnto the Lorde, for an euerlastynge ordynaunce: Ezekiel 46:15 and thus shall the lambe, the meatofferynge and oyle be geuen euerye mornynge, for a daylie burntofferinge.
An order for the prince's inheritance.
Ezekiel 46:16 Moreouer, thus sayeth the Lorde God: If the prynce geue a gyfte vnto eny of hys sonnes, then shall it be hys sonnes heretage perpetuall, that he maye possesse it. Ezekiel 46:17 But If he wyll geue one of hys seruauntes some of his heretage, it shall be his to the fre yeare, and them to returne agayne vnto the prynce: for hys heretage shalbe hys sonnes ouelye. Ezekiel 46:18 The prince also shall take none of the peoples enherytaunce, ner put them from their possessyon: but to his owne sonnes shall he geue hys possessyon, that my people be not scatred abrode, but that euerye man maye haue hys owne.
The courts for boiling and baking.
Ezekiel 46:19 And he brought me thorow the intraunce at the syde of the dore to the habytacyon of the Sanctuary, that be longeth to the prestes and stode towarde the north, & beholde, there was a place vpon the West syde, Ezekiel 46:20 then sayde he vnto me: This is the place, where the prestes shall dight the trespace & synoffrynges and bake the meatofferinges: that they nede not beare them in to the outwarde courte, & so to vnhalowe the people. Ezekiel 46:21 So he brought me in to the vttemost courte, rounde aboute all the foure corners. Beholde, in euery corner of þe fore courte, there was yet a lytle courte. Ezekiel 46:22 Yee in all the foure corners of the courte, there was made a lytle courte of .xl. cubytes long, and .xxx. cubytes brode: these foure lytle courtes were of one lyke measure, Ezekiel 46:23 and there went a rygge wall rounde aboute them all foure, vnder the whych there were harthes made rounde aboute. Ezekiel 46:24 Then sayd he vnto me: This is the kechin, where the mynisters of the house shall dyght the slayne offerynges of the people.
