Ezekiel 44:1-2 New Life Version (NLV)
The Use of the East Gate
44 Then he brought me back to the outer gate of the holy place, toward the east, and it was shut. 2 The Lord said to me, “This gate must stay shut. It must not be opened. No one may come in through it, for the Lord God of Israel has come in through it. So it must stay shut.
