The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel

Chapter 45

Portions of land will be provided for the sanctuary and the dwellings of the priests—The people are to offer their sacrifices and oblations and keep their feasts.

 Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the Lord, an holy portion of the land: the alength shall be the length of five and twenty thousand breeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about.

 Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length, with five hundred in breadth, asquare round about; and fifty cubits round about for the bsuburbs thereof.

 And of this measure shalt thou measure the length of five and twenty thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand: and in it shall be the asanctuary and the most bholy place.

 The holy portion of the land shall be for the apriests the ministers of the sanctuary, which shall bcome near to minister unto the Lord: and it shall be a place for their houses, and an holy place for the sanctuary.

 And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten thousand of breadth, shall also the aLevites, the bministers of the house, have for themselves, for a possession for twenty chambers.

 ¶And ye shall appoint the possession of the acity five thousand broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the oblation of the holy portion: it shall be for the whole house of Israel.

 ¶And a aportion shall be for the prince on the one side and on the other side of the oblation of the holy portion, and of the possession of the city, before the oblation of the holy portion, and before the possession of the city, from the west side westward, and from the east side eastward: and the length shall be over against one of the portions, from the west border unto the east border.

 aIn the bland shall be his possession in Israel: and my cprinces shall no more oppress my people; and the rest of the land shall they give to the house of Israel according to their dtribes.

 ¶Thus saith the Lord God; Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel: remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and ajustice, take away your bexactions from my people, saith the Lord God.

 10 Ye shall have just balances, and a just aephah, and a just bath.

 11 The ephah and the abath shall be of one measure, that the bath may contain the tenth part of an bhomer, and the ephah the tenth part of an homer: the measure thereof shall be after the homer.

 12 And the ashekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.

 13 This is the aoblation that ye shall offer; the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of wheat, and ye shall give the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of barley:

 14 Concerning the ordinance of oil, the bath of oil, ye shall offer the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, which is an homer of ten baths; for ten baths are an homer:

 15 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the fat pastures of Israel; for a meat offering, and for a burnt offering, and for peace offerings, to make reconciliation for them, saith the Lord God.

 16 All the people of the land shall give this oblation for the prince in Israel.

 17 And it shall be the prince’s part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and adrink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new bmoons, and in the sabbaths, in all csolemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare the dsin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.

 18 Thus saith the Lord God; In the first month, in the first day of the month, thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the sanctuary:

 19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.

 20 And so thou shalt do the seventh day of the month for every one that aerreth, and for him that is simple: so shall ye breconcile the house.

 21 In the first month, in the afourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; bunleavened bread shall be eaten.

 22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.

 23 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to the Lord, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a akid of the goats daily for a sin offering.

 24 And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of aoil for an ephah.

 25 In the aseventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the sin offering, according to the burnt offering, and according to the meat offering, and according to the oil.
