26 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they shall consecrate themselves.
26 For seven days they are to make atonement for the altar and cleanse it; thus they will dedicate it.
26 Seven days shall they make atonement for the altar and cleanse it, and so consecrate it.
26 For seven days the priests are to get the altar ready for its work, purifying it. This is how you dedicate it.
26 Seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it.
26 Do this each day for seven days to cleanse and make atonement for the altar, thus setting it apart for holy use.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ezekiel 43:26
After Ezekiel had surveyed the temple of God, he had a vision of the glory of God. When Christ crucified, and the things freely given to us of God, through Him, are shown to us by the Holy Ghost, they make us ashamed for our sins. This frame of mind prepares us for fuller discoveries of the mysteries of redeeming love; and the whole of the Scriptures should be opened and applied, that men may see their sins, and repent of them. We are not now to offer any atoning sacrifices, for by one offering Christ has perfected for ever those that are sanctified, Hebrews 10:14; but the sprinkling of his blood is needful in all our approaches to God the Father. Our best services can be accepted only as sprinkled with the blood which cleanses from all sin.
