46 Thus saith the Lord God; aThe gate of bthe inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut cthe six working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in dthe day of the new moon it shall be opened. 2 And ethe prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate without, and shall stand by fthe post of the gate, and gthe priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, and he shall worship at hthe threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until the evening. 3 Likewise ithe people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the Lord in the sabbaths and in dthe new moons. 4 And jthe burnt offering that the prince kshall offer unto the Lord lin the sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without blemish. 5 And lmthe meat offering shall be nan ephah for a ram, and the meat offering for the lambs †as he shall be able to give, and oan hin of oil to an ephah. 6 And in dthe day of the new moon it shall be pa young bullock without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be without blemish. 7 And he shall prepare ma meat offering, nan ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according qas his hand shall attain unto, and oan hin of oil to an ephah. 8 And ewhen the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of the porch of that gate, and he shall go forth by the way thereof.
9 But when ithe people of the land rshall come before the Lord jin the solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth sover against it. 10 And tthe prince in the midst of them, when they go in, tshall go in; and when they go forth, shall go forth. 11 And jin the feasts and jin the solemnities the meat offering shall be nan ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, and to the lambs uas he is able to give, and oan hin of oil to an ephah. 12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt offering or peace offerings vvoluntarily unto the Lord, eone shall then open him ethe gate that looketh toward the east, and he shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, was he did on the sabbath day: then he shall go forth; and after his going forth wone shall shut the gate. 13 xThou shalt daily prepare a burnt offering unto the Lord of a lamb †of the first year without blemish: thou shalt prepare it †every morning. 14 And thou shalt prepare a meat offering for it every morning, the sixth part of nan ephah, and the third part of oan hin of oil, to temper with the fine flour; a meat offering continually by a perpetual ordinance unto the Lord. 15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat offering, and the oil, every morning for ya continual burnt offering.
16 Thus saith the Lord God; If the prince give a gift unto any of his sons, the inheritance thereof shall be his sons’; it shall be their possession by inheritance. 17 But if he give a gift zof his inheritance to one of his servants, then it shall be his to athe year of liberty; after it shall return to the prince: but his inheritance shall be his sons’ for them. 18 Moreover bthe prince shall not take of the people’s inheritance cby oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; but he shall give his sons inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not scattered every man from his possession.
19 After he brought me through the entry, which was dat the side of the gate, into the holy echambers of the priests, which looked toward the north: and, behold, there was a place on the two sides westward. 20 Then said he unto me, This is the place where the priests shall fboil gthe trespass offering and gthe sin offering, where they shall hbake the meat offering; that they bear them not out into the utter court, ito sanctify the people. 21 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, and caused me to pass by the four corners of the court; and, behold, †in every corner of the court there was a court. 22 In the four corners of the court there were courts ||joined of forty cubits long and thirty broad: these four †corners were of one measure. 23 And there was a row of building round about in them, round about them four, and it was made with boiling places under the rows round about. 24 Then said he unto me, These are the places of them that boil, where kthe ministers of the house shall fboil the sacrifice of the people.
