4 Also He brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the 1temple; so I looked, and ebehold, the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord; fand I fell on my face. 5 And the Lord said to me, g“Son of man, 2mark well, see with your eyes and hear with your ears, all that I say to you concerning all the hordinances of the house of the Lord and all its laws. Mark well who may enter the house and all who go out from the sanctuary.
6 “Now say to the irebellious, to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “O house of Israel, jlet Us have no more of all your abominations. 7 kWhen you brought in lforeigners, muncircumcised in heart and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in My sanctuary to defile it—My house—and when you offered nMy food, othe fat and the blood, then they broke My covenant because of all your abominations. 8 And you have not pkept charge of My holy things, but you have set others to keep charge of My sanctuary for you.” 9 Thus says the Lord God: q“No foreigner, uncircumcised in heart or uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter My sanctuary, including any foreigner who is among the children of Israel.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
