43 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even athe gate that looketh toward the east: 2 And, behold, bthe glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and chis voice was like a noise of many waters: and dthe earth shined with his glory. 3 And it was eaccording to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw ||when I came fto destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw gby the river Chebar; and eI fell upon my face. 4 And bhthe glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of athe gate whose prospect is toward the east. 5 So ithe spirit took me up, and brought me into kthe inner court; and, behold, lthe glory of the Lord filled the house. 6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and mthe man stood by me. 7 And he said unto me, Son of man, nthe place of my throne, and othe place of the soles of my feet, pwhere I will dwell qin the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and rmy holy name, shall the house of Israel rsno more defile, neither they, nor their kings, tby their whoredom, nor tby the carcases of their kings in their high places. 8 uIn their setting of their threshold by vmy thresholds, and their post by wmy posts, ||and xthe wall between me and them, rythey have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger. 9 Now let them put away ttheir whoredom, and tthe carcases of their kings, far from me, and pI will dwell in the midst of them for ever.
10 Thou son of man, zshew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure athe ||pattern. 11 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, bshew them the form of the house, and acthe fashion thereof, and dthe goings out thereof, and dthe comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and ddall the ordinances thereof, and all the forms thereof, and ddall the laws thereof: and write it ein their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all ddthe ordinances thereof, and do them. 12 This is the law of the house; fUpon the top of the mountain the whole glimit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.
13 And these are the measures of hthe altar after the cubits: iThe cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the †bottom shall be a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and gthe border thereof by the †edge thereof round about shall be ka span: and this shall be the higher place of the altar. 14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower lsettle shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser settle even to the greater settle shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit. 15 So *the altar shall be four cubits; and from †the altar and upward shall be mfour horns. 16 And †the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad, nsquare in the four osquares thereof. 17 And lthe settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen broad in the four osquares thereof; and gthe border about it shall be khalf a cubit; and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about; and phis stairs shall look toward the east.
18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord God; These are qthe ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and rto sprinkle blood thereon. 19 And thou shalt give to sthe priests the Levites stthat be of the seed of Zadok, twhich approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord God, uva young bullock vfor a sin offering. 20 And wthou shalt take of the blood thereof, and wput it on mthe four horns of it, and on the four corners of xthe settle, and upon gythe border round about: thus zshalt thou cleanse and zzpurge it. 21 Thou shalt take vthe bullock also of the sin offering, and he ashall burn it in bthe appointed place of the house, awithout the sanctuary. 22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish for a sin offering; and zthey shall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock. 23 When thou hast made an end of zcleansing it, thou shalt offer a young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish. 24 And thou shalt offer them before the Lord, and the priests cshall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering unto the Lord. 25 dSeven days shalt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock, without blemish. 26 dSeven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they shall †consecrate themselves. 27 And when these edays are expired, it shall be, that fupon the eighth day, gand so forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the altar, and your ||hpeace offerings; and I will iaccept you, saith the Lord God.
