Ezekiel 46
New Living Translation
46“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: The east gateway of the inner courtyard will be closed during the six workdays each week, but it will be open on Sabbath days and the days of new moon celebrations.H559H136H3069H8179H6442H2691H6437H6921H5462H8337H4639H3117H7676H3117H6605H3117H2320H6605 2The prince will enter the entry room of the gateway from the outside. Then he will stand by the gatepost while the priest offers his burnt offering and peace offering. He will bow down in worship inside the gateway passage and then go back out the way he came. The gateway will not be closed until evening.H5387H935H1870H197H8179H2351H5975H4201H8179H3548H6213H5930H8002H7812H4670H8179H3318H8179H5462H6153 3The common people will bow down and worship the Lord in front of this gateway on Sabbath days and the days of new moon celebrations.H5971H776H7812H6607H8179H6440H3068H7676H2320 4“Each Sabbath day the prince will present to the Lord a burnt offering of six lambs and one ram, all with no defects.H5930H5387H7126H3068H7676H3117H8337H3532H8549H352H8549 5He will present a grain offering of a basket of choice flour to go with the ram and whatever amount of flour he chooses to go with each lamb, and he is to offer one gallon of olive oil for each basket of flour.H4503H374H352H4503H3532H3027H4991H1969H8081H374 6At the new moon celebrations, he will bring one young bull, six lambs, and one ram, all with no defects.H3117H2320H1121H1241H6499H8549H8337H3532H352H8549 7With the young bull he must bring a basket of choice flour for a grain offering. With the ram he must bring another basket of flour. And with each lamb he is to bring whatever amount of flour he chooses to give. With each basket of flour he must offer one gallon of olive oil.H6213H4503H374H6499H374H352H3532H3027H5381H1969H8081H374 8“The prince must enter the gateway through the entry room, and he must leave the same way.H5387H935H935H1870H197H8179H3318H1870 9But when the people come in through the north gateway to worship the Lord during the religious festivals, they must leave by the south gateway. And those who entered through the south gateway must leave by the north gateway. They must never leave by the same gateway they came in, but must always use the opposite gateway.H5971H776H935H6440H3068H4150H935H1870H6828H8179H7812H3318H1870H5045H8179H935H1870H5045H8179H3318H1870H6828H8179H7725H1870H8179H935H3318H5226 10The prince will enter and leave with the people on these occasions.H5387H8432H935H935H3318H3318 11“So at the special feasts and sacred festivals, the grain offering will be a basket of choice flour with each young bull, another basket of flour with each ram, and as much flour as the prince chooses to give with each lamb. Give one gallon of olive oil with each basket of flour.H2282H4150H4503H374H6499H374H352H3532H3027H4991H1969H8081H374 12When the prince offers a voluntary burnt offering or peace offering to the Lord, the east gateway to the inner courtyard will be opened for him, and he will offer his sacrifices as he does on Sabbath days. Then he will leave, and the gateway will be shut behind him.H5387H6213H5071H5930H8002H5071H3068H6605H8179H6437H6921H6213H5930H8002H6213H7676H3117H3318H310H3318H5462H8179 13“Each morning you must sacrifice a one-year-old lamb with no defects as a burnt offering to the Lord.H3117H6213H5930H3068H3532H1121H8141H8549H6213H1242H1242 14With the lamb, a grain offering must also be given to the Lord—about three quarts of flour with a third of a gallon of olive oil to moisten the choice flour. This will be a permanent law for you.H6213H4503H1242H8345H374H7992H1969H8081H7450H5560H4503H8548H5769H2708H3068 15The lamb, the grain offering, and the olive oil must be given as a daily sacrifice every morning without fail.H6213H6213H3532H4503H8081H1242H8548H5930 16“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: If the prince gives a gift of land to one of his sons as his inheritance, it will belong to him and his descendants forever.H559H136H3069H5387H5414H4979H376H1121H5159H1121H272H5159 17But if the prince gives a gift of land from his inheritance to one of his servants, the servant may keep it only until the Year of Jubilee, which comes every fiftieth year. At that time the land will return to the prince. But when the prince gives gifts to his sons, those gifts will be permanent.H5414H4979H5159H259H5650H8141H1865H7725H5387H5159H1121 18And the prince may never take anyone’s property by force. If he gives property to his sons, it must be from his own land, for I do not want any of my people unjustly evicted from their property.”H5387H3947H5971H5159H3238H3238H272H1121H5157H272H5971H6327H376H272

The Temple Kitchens

19In my vision, the man brought me through the entrance beside the gateway and led me to the sacred rooms assigned to the priests, which faced toward the north. He showed me a place at the extreme west end of these rooms.H935H3996H3802H8179H6944H3957H3548H6437H6828H4725H3411H3220 20He explained, “This is where the priests will cook the meat from the guilt offerings and sin offerings and bake the flour from the grain offerings into bread. They will do it here to avoid carrying the sacrifices through the outer courtyard and endangering the people by transmitting holiness to them.”H559H4725H3548H1310H817H2403H644H4503H3318H2435H2691H6942H5971 21Then he brought me back to the outer courtyard and led me to each of its four corners. In each corner I saw an enclosure.H3318H2435H2691H5674H702H4740H2691H4740H4740H2691H2691H2691 22Each of these enclosures was 70 feet long and 52 1/2 feet wide, surrounded by walls.H702H4740H2691H2691H7000H705H753H7970H7341H702H7106H259H4060 23Along the inside of these walls was a ledge of stone with fireplaces under the ledge all the way around.H2905H5439H5439H702H6213H4018H2918H5439 24The man said to me, “These are the kitchens to be used by the Temple assistants to boil the sacrifices offered by the people.”H559H1004H1310H8334H1004H1310H2077H5971
