<< Ezekiel 45 | Ezekiel 46-48 | Daniel 1 >>

46 1  'Thus said the Lord Jehovah: The gate of the inner court that is looking eastward is shut the six days of work, and on the day of rest it is opened, and in the day of the new moon it is opened; 2  and come in hath the prince the way of the porch of the gate at the outside, and he hath stood by the post of the gate, and the priests have made his burnt-offering, and his peace-offerings, and he hath bowed himself by the opening of the gate, and hath gone forth, and the gate is not shut till the evening. 3  And bowed themselves have the people of the land at the opening of that gate, on sabbaths, and on new moons, before Jehovah. 4  'And the burnt-offering that the prince bringeth near to Jehovah on the day of rest 'is' six lambs, perfect ones, and a ram, a perfect one. 5  And the present 'is' an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs a present, the gift of his hand, and of oil a hin for an ephah. 6  And on the day of the new moon a bullock, a son of the herd, a perfect one, and six lambs and a ram, they are perfect. 7  And with an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, he prepareth a present, and for the lambs as his hand attaineth, and of oil a hin for an ephah. 8  'And in the coming in of the prince, the way of the porch of the gate he cometh in, and by its way he goeth out. 9  And in the coming in of the people of the land before Jehovah at appointed times, he who hath come in the way of the north gate to bow himself, goeth out the way of the south gate, and he who hath come in the way of the south gate, goeth out by the way of the north gate: he doth not turn back the way of the gate by which he came in, but over-against it he goeth out. 10  And the prince in their midst in their coming in cometh in, and in their going out he goeth out. 11  'And in feasts, and in appointed times, the present is an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and for lambs the gift of his hand, and of oil a hin for an ephah. 12  And when the prince maketh a free-will burnt-offering, or free-will peace-offerings, to Jehovah, then he hath opened for himself the gate that is looking eastward, and he hath made his burnt-offering and his peace-offerings as he doth in the day of rest, and he hath gone out, and he hath shut the gate after his going out. 13  'And a lamb, son of a year, a perfect one, thou dost make a burnt-offering daily to Jehovah; morning by morning thou dost make it. 14  And a present thou dost make for it morning by morning, a sixth part of the ephah, and of oil a third part of the hin, to temper with the fine flour, a present to Jehovah, by a statute age-during—continually; 15  and prepare ye the lamb, and the present, and the oil, morning by morning, a continual burnt-offering.

16  'Thus said the Lord Jehovah: When the prince giveth a gift to any of his sons, his inheritance it 'is', to his sons it 'is'; their possession it 'is' by inheritance. 17  And when he giveth a gift out of his inheritance to one of his servants, then it hath been to him till the year of freedom, and it hath turned back to the prince, only the inheritance of his sons is theirs. 18  And the prince doth not take of the inheritance of the people to oppress them, out of their possession, out of his own possession he doth cause his sons to inherit, so that My people are not scattered each from his possession.'

19  And he bringeth me in through the entrance that 'is' by the side of the gate, unto the holy chambers, unto the priests, that are looking northward, and lo, there 'is' a place in their two sides westward. 20  And he saith unto me, 'This 'is' the place where the priests do boil the guilt-offering and the sin-offering, where they bake the present, so as not to bring 'it' out unto the outer court, to sanctify the people.' 21  And he bringeth me out unto the outer court, and causeth me to pass over unto the four corners of the court, and lo, a court in a corner of the court, a court in a corner of the corner. 22  In the four corners of the court 'are' perfume courts, forty long, and thirty broad, one measure 'is' to the four corners. 23  And a row 'is' round about in them, round about to them four, and made with boilers under the rows round about. 24  And he saith unto me, 'These 'are' the houses of those boiling where the ministrants of the house boil the sacrifice of the people.'

The Healing Waters from the Temple

47 1  And he causeth me to turn back unto the opening of the house; and lo, water is coming forth from under the threshold of the house eastward, for the front of the house 'is' eastward, and the water is coming down from beneath, from the right side of the house, from the south of the altar. 2  And he causeth me to go out the way of the gate northward, and causeth me to turn round the way without, unto the gate that 'is' without, the way that is looking eastward, and lo, water is coming forth from the right side. 3  In the going out of the man eastward, and a line in his hand, then he measureth a thousand by the cubit, and he causeth me to pass over into water—water to the ankles. 4  And he measureth a thousand, and causeth me to pass over into water—water to the knees. And he measureth a thousand, and causeth me to pass over—water to the loins. 5  And he measureth a thousand—a stream that I am not able to pass over; for risen have the waters—waters to swim in—a stream that is not passed over. 6  And he saith unto me, 'Hast thou seen, son of man?' and he leadeth me, and bringeth me back unto the edge of the stream. 7  In my turning back, then, lo, at the edge of the stream 'are' very many trees, on this side and on that side. 8  And he saith unto me, 'These waters are going forth unto the east circuit, and have gone down unto the desert, and have entered the sea; unto the sea they are brought forth, and the waters have been healed. 9  And it hath come to pass, every living creature that teemeth, whithersoever the streams come, doth live: and there hath been great abundance of fish, for these waters have come thither, and they are healed; and every thing whither the stream cometh hath lived. 10  And it hath come to pass, fishers do stand by it, from En-Gedi even unto En-Eglaim; a spreading place of nets they are; according to their own kind is their fish, as the fish of the great sea, very many. 11  Its miry and its marshy places—they are not healed; to salt they have been given up. 12  And by the stream there cometh up on its edge, on this side and on that side, every 'kind of' fruit-tree whose leaf fadeth not, and not consumed is its fruit, according to its months it yieldeth first-fruits, because its waters from the sanctuary are coming forth; and its fruits hath been for food, and its leaf for medicine.

The Borders and Divisions of the Land

13  'Thus said the Lord Jehovah: This 'is' the border whereby ye inherit the land, according to the twelve tribes of Israel; Joseph 'hath' portions. 14  And ye have inherited it, one as well as another, in that I have lifted up My hand to give it to your fathers; and this land hath fallen to you in inheritance. 15  'And this 'is' the border of the land at the north quarter; from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, at the coming in to Zedad: 16  Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, that 'is' between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazar-Hatticon, that 'is' at the coast of Havran. 17  And the border from the sea hath been Hazar-Enan, the border of Damascus, and Zaphon at the north, and the border of Hamath: and 'this is' the north quarter. 18  'And the east quarter 'is' from between Havran, and Damascus, and Gilead, and the land of Israel, 'to' the Jordan; from the border over-against the eastern sea ye measure: and 'this is' the east quarter. 19  'And the south quarter southward 'is' from Tamar unto the waters of Meriboth-Kadesh, the stream unto the great sea: and 'this is' the south quarter southward. 20  'And the west quarter 'is' the great sea, from the border till over-against the coming in to Hamath: this 'is' the west quarter. 21  'And ye have divided this land to you, according to the tribes of Israel; 22  and it hath come to pass, ye separate it for an inheritance to yourselves, and to the sojourners who are sojourning in your midst, who have begotten sons in your midst, and they have been to you as native, with the sons of Israel, with you they are separated for an inheritance in the midst of the tribes of Israel. 23  And it hath come to pass, in the tribe with which the sojourner sojourneth, there ye give his inheritance—an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.

48 1  And these 'are' the names of the tribes: From the north end unto the side of the way of Hethlon, at the coming in to Hamath, Hazar-Enan, the border of Damascus northward, unto the side of Hamath, and they have been his—side east and west, Dan one, 2  and by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west side, Asher one, 3  and by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the west side, Naphtali one, 4  and by the border of Naphtali, from the east side unto the west side, Manasseh one, 5  and by the border of Manasseh, from the east side unto the west side, Ephraim one, 6  and by the border of Ephraim, from the east side even unto the west side, Reuben one, 7  and by the border of Reuben, from the east side unto the west side, Judah one, 8  and by the border of Judah, from the east side unto the west side is the heave-offering that ye lift up, five and twenty thousand broad and long, as one of the parts, from the east side unto the west side: and the sanctuary hath been in its midst. 9  The heave-offering that ye lift up to Jehovah 'is' five and twenty thousand long, and broad ten thousand. 10  And of these is the holy heave-offering for the priests, northward five and twenty thousand, and westward 'in' breadth ten thousand, and eastward 'in' breadth ten thousand, and southward 'in' length five and twenty thousand: and the sanctuary of Jehovah hath been in its midst. 11  For the priests who are sanctified of the sons of Zadok, who have kept My charge, who erred not in the erring of the sons of Israel, as the Levites erred, 12  even the heave-offering hath been to them, out of the heave-offering of the land, most holy, by the border of the Levites. 13  'And 'to' the Levites over-against the border of the priests 'are' five and twenty thousand 'in' length, and 'in' breadth ten thousand, all the length 'is' five and twenty thousand, and the breadth ten thousand. 14  And they do not sell of it, nor exchange, nor cause to pass away the first-fruit of the land: for 'it is' holy to Jehovah. 15  And the five thousand that is left in the breadth, on the front of the five and twenty thousand, is common—for the city, for dwelling, and for suburb, and the city hath been in its midst. 16  And these 'are' its measures: the north side five hundred, and four thousand, and the south side five hundred, and four thousand, and on the east side five hundred, and four thousand, and the west side five hundred, and four thousand. 17  And the suburb to the city hath been northward, fifty and two hundred, and southward, fifty and two hundred, and eastward, fifty and two hundred, and westward, fifty and two hundred. 18  'And the residue in length over-against the heave-offering of the holy 'portion is' ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand westward, and it hath been over-against the heave-offering of the holy 'portion', and its increase hath been for food to the servants of the city, 19  even 'to' him who is serving the city, they serve it out of all the tribes of Israel. 20  All the heave-offering 'is' five and twenty thousand by five and twenty thousand, square do ye lift up the heave-offering of the holy 'portion' with the possession of the city. 21  'And the residue 'is' for the prince, on this side and on that side of the heave-offering of the holy 'portion', and of the possession of the city, on the front of the five and twenty thousand of the heave-offering unto the east border, and westward, on the front of the five and twenty thousand on the west border, over-against the portions of the prince; and the heave-offering of the holy 'portion', and the sanctuary of the house, hath been in its midst. 22  And from the possession of the Levites, from the possession of the city, in the midst of that which is to the prince, between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin, there is to the prince. 23  'As to the rest of the tribes, from the east side unto the west side, Benjamin one, 24  and by the border of Benjamin, from the east side unto the west side, Simeon one, 25  and by the border of Simeon, from the east side unto the west side, Issachar one, 26  and by the border of Issachar, from the east side unto the west side, Zebulun one, 27  and by the border of Zebulun, from the east side unto the west side, Gad one, 28  and by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the border hath been from Tamar 'to' the waters of Meriboth-Kadesh, the stream by the great sea. 29  This 'is' the land that ye separate by inheritance to the tribes of Israel, and these 'are' their portions—an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah. 30  'And these 'are' the outgoings of the city on the north side, five hundred, and four thousand measures.

31  And the gates of the city 'are' according to the names of the tribes of Israel; three gates northward: the gate of Reuben one, the gate of Judah one, the gate of Levi one. 32  And on the east side five hundred, and four thousand, and three gates: the gate of Joseph one, the gate of Benjamin one, the gate of Dan one. 33  And the south side five hundred, and four thousand measures, and three gates: the gate of Simeon one, the gate of Issachar one, the gate of Zebulun one. 34  The west side five hundred, and four thousand, their gates three: the gate of Gad one, the gate of Asher one, the gate of Naphtali one. 35  Round about 'is' eighteen thousand, and the renown of the city 'is' from the day Jehovah 'is' there.'
