Ezekiel 46 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
46 1 The sacrifices of the Sabbath and of the new moon. 8 Through which doors they must go in, or come out of the Temple, etc.
1 Thus saith the Lord God, The gate of the inner court, that turneth 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.
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 make his burnt offering, and his peace offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate: after he shall go forth, but the gate shall not be shut till the evening.
3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the entry of this gate before the Lord on the Sabbaths, and in the new moons.
4 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer unto the Lord on the Sabbath day, shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without blemish.
5 And the meat offering shall be an Ephah for a ram: and the meat offering for the lambs [a]a gift of his hand, and an Hin of oil to an Ephah.
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.
7 And he shall prepare a meat offering, even an Ephah for a bullock, and an Ephah for a ram, and for the lambs [b]according as his hand shall bring, and an Hin of oil to an Ephah.
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 way thereof.
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 they shall go forth over against it.
10 And the prince shall be in the midst of them: he shall go in when they go in, and when they go forth, they shall go forth together.
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, the gift of his hand, and an Hin of oil to an Ephah.
12 Now when the prince shall make a free burnt offering, or peace offerings freely unto the Lord, one shall then open him the gate that turneth toward the East, and he shall make his burnt offering and his peace offerings, as he did on the Sabbath day: after he shall go forth, and when he is gone forth, one shall shut the gate.
13 Thou shalt daily make a burnt offering unto the Lord of a lamb of one year, without blemish: thou shalt do it every morning.
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 mingle with the fine flour: this meat offering shall be continually by a perpetual ordinance unto the Lord.
15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat offering, and the oil every morning, for a continual burnt offering.
16 ¶ Thus saith the Lord God, If the prince give a gift of his inheritance unto any of his sons, it shall be his sons, and it shall be their possession by inheritance.
17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of his servants, then it shall be his to the [c]year of liberty: after, it shall return to the Prince, but his inheritance shall remain to his sons for them.
18 Moreover the prince shall not [d]take of the people’s inheritance, nor thrust them out of their possession: but he shall cause his sons to inherit of his own possession, that my people be not scattered every man from his possession.
19 ¶ After he brought me through the entry, which was at the side of the gate, into the holy chambers of the Priests, which stood toward the North: and behold, there was a place at the West side of them.
20 Then said he unto me, This is the place where the Priests shall seethe the trespass offering and the sin offering, where they shall bake the meat offering, that they should not bear them into the utter court, [e]to sanctify the people.
21 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, and caused me to go by the four corners of the court: and behold, in every corner of the court there was a court.
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.
23 And there went a wall about them, even about those four, and kitchens were made under the walls round about.
24 Then said he unto me, This is the kitchen where the ministers of the house shall seethe the sacrifice of the people.
