Israel Fully Restored (continued)
46:1 Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner
court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six
working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in
the day of the new moon it shall be opened.
46:2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of
that gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate,
and the priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his
peace offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of
the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be
shut until the evening.
46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the
door of this gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the
46:4 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer
unto the LORD in the sabbath day shall be six lambs without
blemish, and a ram without blemish.
46:5 And the meat offering shall be an ephah for a ram, and
the meat offering for the lambs as he shall be able to give,
and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:6 And in the day of the new moon it shall be a young
bullock without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they
shall be without blemish.
46:7 And he shall prepare a meat offering, an ephah for a
bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according
as his hand shall attain unto, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:8 And when the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the
way of the porch of that gate, and he shall go forth by the
46:9 But when the people of the land shall come before the
LORD in the solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of
the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the
south gate; and he that entereth by the way of the south
gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall
not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but
shall go forth over against it.
46:10 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in,
shall go in; and when they go forth, shall go forth.
46:11 And in the feasts and in the solemnities the meat
offering shall be an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a
ram, and to the lambs as he is able to give, and an hin of
oil to an ephah.
46:12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt
offering or peace offerings voluntarily unto the LORD, one
shall then open him the gate that looketh toward the east,
and he shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace
offerings, as he did on the sabbath day: then he shall go
forth; and after his going forth one shall shut the gate.
46:13 Thou shalt daily prepare a burnt offering unto the
LORD of a lamb of the first year without blemish: thou shalt
prepare it every morning.
46:14 And thou shalt prepare a meat offering for it every
morning, the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of
an hin of oil, to temper with the fine flour; a meat
offering continually by a perpetual ordinance unto the LORD.
46:15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat
offering, and the oil, every morning for a continual burnt
46:16 Thus saith the Lord GOD; If the prince give a gift
unto any of his sons, the inheritance thereof shall be his
sons'; it shall be their possession by inheritance.
46:17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of
his servants, then it shall be his to the year of liberty;
after it shall return to the prince: but his inheritance
shall be his sons' for them.
46:18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's
inheritance by oppression, to thrust them out of their
possession; but he shall give his sons inheritance out of
his own possession: that my people be not scattered every
man from his possession.
46:19 After he brought me through the entry, which was at
the side of the gate, into the holy chambers of the priests,
which looked toward the north: and, behold, there was a
place on the two sides westward.
46:20 Then said he unto me, This is the place where the
priests shall boil the trespass offering and the sin
offering, where they shall bake the meat offering; that they
bear them not out into the utter court, to sanctify the
46:21 Then he brought me forth into the utter 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.
46:22 In the four corners of the court there were courts
joined of forty cubits long and thirty broad: these four
corners were of one measure.
46:23 And there was a row of building round about in them,
round about them four, and it was made with boiling places
under the rows round about.
46:24 Then said he unto me, These are the places of them
that boil, where the ministers of the house shall boil the
sacrifice of the people.
