Ordinances for the prince in his worship,
Ezekiel 46:1 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, the gate of the inner court which looketh toward the east, shall be shut, the six days of work,but, on the sabbath-day, shall it be opened, and, on the day of the new moon, shall it be opened. Ezekiel 46:2 The prince therefore shall enter by way of the porch of the gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall offer his ascending-sacrifice, and his peace offerings, and he shall bow down upon the threshold of the gate, and then go forth, but, the gate, shall not be shut until the evening; Ezekiel 46:3 and the people of the land, shall bow down, at the entrance of that gate on the sabbaths, and at the new moons,before Yahweh. Ezekiel 46:4 And, the ascending-sacrifice which the prince, shall bring near, unto Yahweh, [shall be], on the sabbath day, six he-lambs without defect, and a ram without defect; Ezekiel 46:5 and, the meal-offering, shall be an ephah to a ram, and, to the he-lambs, the meal-offering shall be as one is able to give,and, of oil, a hin to an ephah. Ezekiel 46:6 But, on the day of the new moon, a young bullock without defect,and six he-lambs and a ram, without defect, shall they be; Ezekiel 46:7 and, an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, shall he offer as a meal-offering, and, for the he-lambs, just as his hand shall attain unto,and, of oil, a hin to an ephah. Ezekiel 46:8 And, when the prince shall enter, by way of the porch of the gate, shall he go in, and, by way thereof, shall he go out.
and for the people.
Ezekiel 46:9 But, when the people of the land shall enter, before Yahweh on the appointed feasts, he that entereth by way of the north, gate to bow down, shall go forth by way of the south, gate, and, he that entereth by way of the south, gate, shall go forth by way of the north, gate,he shall not return by way of the gate by which he entered, but, straight-forward, shall he go forth. Ezekiel 46:10 But, as for the prince, in their midst when they, enter, shall he enter, and, when they, go forth, shall he go forth. Ezekiel 46:11 And, in the festivals and in the appointed feasts, the meal-offering! shall be an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, but, to the he-lambs, as one is able to give,and, of oil, a hin to an ephah. Ezekiel 46:12 And, when the prince would offer, as a free-will offering, an ascending-sacrifice or peace-offerings, as a free-will offering to Yahweh, then shall be opened to him, the gate that looketh to the east, and he shall offer his ascending-sacrifice and his peace-offerings, just as he would offer on the sabbath, day,and, when he shall go forth, then shall one shut the gate, after he hath gone forth. Ezekiel 46:13 And, a he-lamb of the first year, without defect, shalt thou offer as an ascending-sacrifice daily, unto Yahweh,morning by morning shalt thou offer it. Ezekiel 46:14 And, a meal-offering, shalt thou offer thereupon, morning by morning, of the sixth of an ephah, and, of oil, the third part of a hin, to moisten the fine meal,a meal-offering to Yahweh, age-abiding statutes continually. Ezekiel 46:15 Thus shall they offer the he-lamb and the meal-offering and the oil, morning by morning,a continual ascending-sacrifice.
An order for the prince's inheritance.
Ezekiel 46:16 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, When the prince would bestow, a gift upon any one of his sons, his own inheritance, shall it be, for his sons, shall it remain,their possession, shall it be, by way of inheritance. Ezekiel 46:17 But, when he would bestow a gift out of his inheritance, on any one of his servants, it shall remain his, unto the year of liberation, then shall it return to the prince,surely it is the inheritance of his sons, theirs, shall it remain. Ezekiel 46:18 So then the prince, shall not take, of the inheritance of the people, to oppress them out of their possession, out of his own possession, shall he give an inheritance to his sons,to the end that my people be not scattered, any one out of his possession.
The courts for boiling and baking.
Ezekiel 46:19 Then he brought me in through the entrance which was by the side of the gate, into the chambers of the holy place for the priests, those facing the north,and lo! there, a place, in the hinder parts westwards. Ezekiel 46:20 Then said he unto me,This, is the place where the priests, shall boil, the guilt-bearer, and the sin-bearer,where they shall bake the meal-offering, that one may not carry them forth into the outer court, to hallow the people. Ezekiel 46:21 So he caused me to go out into the outer court, and then made me pass through into the four corners of the court,and lo! a court, in each corner of the court: Ezekiel 46:22 in the four corners of the court, were courts covered over, forty long and thirty broad: of one measure, were those four. Ezekiel 46:23 And there was an enclosure round about in them, round about to those four,and, boiling places, had been made under the enclosures, round about. Ezekiel 46:24 And he said unto me,These, are the places of them who boil, where they who wait upon the house, shall boil, the sacrifice of the people.
