46 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “The gateway of the inner court that faces toward the east shall be shut the six aworking days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened, and on the day of the New Moon it shall be opened. 2 bThe prince shall enter by way of the vestibule of the gateway from the outside, and stand by the gatepost. The priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings. He shall worship at the threshold of the gate. Then he shall go out, but the gate shall not be shut until evening.
