1 Then he led me to the agate, the gate facing toward the east;
3 And it was like the appearance of the vision which I saw, like the avision which I saw when 1He came to bdestroy the city. And the visions were like the vision which I saw by the criver Chebar; and I dfell on my face.
4 And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate facing toward the aeast.
6 Then I heard one speaking to me from the house, while a aman was standing beside me.
7 He said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of My athrone and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will bdwell among the sons of Israel forever. And the house of Israel will not again defile My holy name, neither they nor their kings, by their harlotry and by the 1ccorpses of their kings 2when they die,
8 by setting their threshold by My threshold and their door post beside My door post, with only the wall between Me and them. And they have adefiled My holy name by their abominations which they have committed. So I have consumed them in My anger.
11 “If they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the 1design of the house, its structure, its aexits, its entrances, all its designs, all its statutes2, and all its laws. And write it bin their sight, so that they may observe its whole 1design and all its statutes and cdo them.
13 “And these are the measurements of the aaltar by cubits (the bcubit being a cubit and a handbreadth): the 1base shall be a cubit and the width a cubit, and its border on its edge round about one span; and this shall be the height of the 2base of the altar.
17 “The ledge shall be fourteen cubits long by fourteen wide in its four sides, the border around it shall be half a cubit and its base shall be a cubit round about; and its asteps shall 1bface the east.”
21 ‘You shall also take the bull for the sin offering, and it shall be aburned in the appointed place of the house, outside the sanctuary.
24 ‘You shall present them before the Lord, and the priests shall throw asalt on them, and they shall offer them up as a burnt offering to the Lord.
25 ‘aFor seven days you shall prepare daily a goat for a sin offering; also a young bull and a ram from the flock, without blemish, shall be prepared.
26 ‘For seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it; so shall they 1consecrate it.
27 ‘When they have completed the days, it shall be that on the aeighth day and onward, the priests shall 1offer your burnt offerings on the altar, and your bpeace offerings; and I will caccept you,’ declares the Lord God.”

Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
