38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the
chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I
will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and
horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a
great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling
38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield
38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north
quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy
company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto
38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years
thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the
sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the
mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is
brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely
all of them.
38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a
cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many
people with thee.
38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at
the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt
think an evil thought:
38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled
villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell
safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither
bars nor gates,
38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon
the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the
people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten
cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the
young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to
take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey?
to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods,
to take a great spoil?
38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith
the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth
safely, shalt thou not know it?
38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts,
thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon
horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud
to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will
bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when
I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
38:17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in
old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which
prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee
38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come
against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury
shall come up in my face.
38:19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken,
Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land
38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven,
and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that
creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face
of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains
shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and
every wall shall fall to the ground.
38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my
mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be
against his brother.
38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood;
and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the
many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great
hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
38:23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be
known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I
am the LORD.
39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the
chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
39:2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of
thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and
will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
39:3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause
thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
39:4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all
thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee
unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of
the field to be devoured.
39:5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it,
saith the Lord GOD.
39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell
carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
39:7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people
Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more:
and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in
39:8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this
is the day whereof I have spoken.
39:9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth,
and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields
and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves,
and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven
39:10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut
down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons
with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and
rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.
39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto
Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the
passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses
of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his
multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.
39:12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them,
that they may cleanse the land.
39:13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall
be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith
the Lord GOD.
39:14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing
through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain
upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of
seven months shall they search.
39:15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth
a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the
buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
39:16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall
they cleanse the land.
39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto
every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field,
Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side
to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great
sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh,
and drink blood.
39:18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of
the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of
bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
39:19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye
be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
39:20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots,
with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
39:21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen
shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I
have laid upon them.
39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the
LORD their God
from that day and forward.
39:23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into
captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against
me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the
hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their
transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from
39:25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the
captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of
Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
39:26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their
trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they
dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
39:27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered
them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in
the sight of many nations;
39:28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which
caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I
have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of
them any more there.
39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have
poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
40:1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the
beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the
fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the
selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me
40:2 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel,
and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the
frame of a city on the south.
40:3 And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose
appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of
flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the
40:4 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes,
and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I
shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto
thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to
the house of Israel.
40:5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and
in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the
cubit and an hand breadth: so he measured the breadth of the
building, one reed; and the height, one reed.
40:6 Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and
went up the stairs thereof, and measured the threshold of the
gate, which was one reed broad; and the other threshold of the
gate, which was one reed broad.
40:7 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed
broad; and between the little chambers were five cubits; and
the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within was
40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.
40:9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the
posts thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was
40:10 And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on
this side, and three on that side; they three were of one
measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on
40:11 And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten
cubits; and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.
40:12 The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on
this side, and the space was one cubit on that side: and the
little chambers were six cubits on this side, and six cubits
on that side.
40:13 He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber
to the roof of another: the breadth was five and twenty
cubits, door against door.
40:14 He made also posts of threescore cubits, even unto the post of
the court round about the gate.
40:15 And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of
the porch of the inner gate were fifty cubits.
40:16 And there were narrow windows to the little chambers, and to
their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the
arches: and windows were round about inward: and upon each
post were palm trees.
40:17 Then brought he me into the outward court, and, lo, there were
chambers, and a pavement made for the court round about:
thirty chambers were upon the pavement.
40:18 And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the
length of the gates was the lower pavement.
40:19 Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower
gate unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred
cubits eastward and northward.
40:20 And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the
north, he measured the length thereof, and the breadth
40:21 And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and
three on that side; and the posts thereof and the arches
thereof were after the measure of the first gate: the length
thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty
40:22 And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees,
were after the measure of the gate that looketh toward the
east; and they went up unto it by seven steps; and the arches
thereof were before them.
40:23 And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate
toward the north, and toward the east; and he measured from
gate to gate an hundred cubits.
40:24 After that he brought me toward the south, and behold a gate
toward the south: and he measured the posts thereof and the
arches thereof according to these measures.
40:25 And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round
about, like those windows: the length was fifty cubits, and
the breadth five and twenty cubits.
40:26 And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches
thereof were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this
side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof.
40:27 And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south: and
he measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred
40:28 And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate: and he
measured the south gate according to these measures;
40:29 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and
the arches thereof, according to these measures: and there
were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about: it
was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad.
40:30 And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long,
and five cubits broad.
40:31 And the arches thereof were toward the utter court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had
40:32 And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he
measured the gate according to these measures.
40:33 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and
the arches thereof, were according to these measures: and
there were windows therein and in the arches thereof round
about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits
40:34 And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that
side: and the going up to it had eight steps.
40:35 And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according
to these measures;
40:36 The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches
thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was
fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits.
40:37 And the posts thereof were toward the utter court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that
side: and the going up to it had eight steps.
40:38 And the chambers and the entries thereof were by the posts of
the gates, where they washed the burnt offering.
40:39 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and
two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering
and the sin offering and the trespass offering.
40:40 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the
north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was
at the porch of the gate, were two tables.
40:41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side,
by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew
40:42 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt offering,
of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad,
and one cubit high: whereupon also they laid the instruments
wherewith they slew the burnt offering and the sacrifice.
40:43 And within were hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about:
and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.
40:44 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers in
the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate; and
their prospect was toward the south: one at the side of the
east gate having the prospect toward the north.
40:45 And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward
the south, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of
40:46 And the chamber whose prospect is toward the north is for the
priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the
sons of Zadok among the sons of Levi, which come near to the LORD to minister unto him.
40:47 So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an
hundred cubits broad, foursquare; and the altar that was
before the house.
40:48 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each
post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits
on that side: and the breadth of the gate was three cubits on
this side, and three cubits on that side.
40:49 The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth
eleven cubits, and he brought me by the steps whereby they
went up to it: and there were pillars by the posts, one on
this side, and another on that side.
41:1 Afterward he brought me to the temple, and measured the posts,
six cubits broad on the one side, and six cubits broad on the
other side, which was the breadth of the tabernacle.
41:2 And the breadth of the door was ten cubits; and the sides of
the door were five cubits on the one side, and five cubits on
the other side: and he measured the length thereof, forty
cubits: and the breadth, twenty cubits.
41:3 Then went he inward, and measured the post of the door, two
cubits; and the door, six cubits; and the breadth of the door,
41:4 So he measured the length thereof, twenty cubits; and the
breadth, twenty cubits, before the temple: and he said unto
me, This is the most holy place.
41:5 After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the
breadth of every side chamber, four cubits, round about the
house on every side.
41:6 And the side chambers were three, one over another, and thirty
in order; and they entered into the wall which was of the
house for the side chambers round about, that they might have
hold, but they had not hold in the wall of the house.
41:7 And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward
to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went
still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of
the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest
chamber to the highest by the midst.
41:8 I saw also the height of the house round about: the
foundations of the side chambers were a full reed of six great
41:9 The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber
without, was five cubits: and that which was left was the
place of the side chambers that were within.
41:10 And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits
round about the house on every side.
41:11 And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that
was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward
the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five
cubits round about.
41:12 Now the building that was before the separate place at the end
toward the west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the
building was five cubits thick round about, and the length
thereof ninety cubits.
41:13 So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long; and the
separate place, and the building, with the walls thereof, an
hundred cubits long;
41:14 Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate
place toward the east, an hundred cubits.
41:15 And he measured the length of the building over against the
separate place which was behind it, and the galleries thereof
on the one side and on the other side, an hundred cubits, with
the inner temple, and the porches of the court;
41:16 The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries
round about on their three stories, over against the door,
cieled with wood round about, and from the ground up to the
windows, and the windows were covered;
41:17 To that above the door, even unto the inner house, and
without, and by all the wall round about within and without,
41:18 And it was made with cherubims and palm trees, so that a palm
tree was between a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had
41:19 So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one
side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the
other side: it was made through all the house round about.
41:20 From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palm
trees made, and on the wall of the temple.
41:21 The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the
sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the
41:22 The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length
thereof two cubits; and the corners thereof, and the length
thereof, and the walls thereof, were of wood: and he said unto
me, This is the table that is before the LORD.
41:23 And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.
41:24 And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves; two
leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the other door.
41:25 And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple,
cherubims and palm trees, like as were made upon the walls;
and there were thick planks upon the face of the porch
41:26 And there were narrow windows and palm trees on the one side
and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the
side chambers of the house, and thick planks.
42:1 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, the way toward
the north: and he brought me into the chamber that was over
against the separate place, and which was before the building
toward the north.
42:2 Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and
the breadth was fifty cubits.
42:3 Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court,
and over against the pavement which was for the utter court,
was gallery against gallery in three stories.
42:4 And before the chambers was a walk to ten cubits breadth
inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north.
42:5 Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were
higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of
42:6 For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the
pillars of the courts: therefore the building was straitened
more than the lowest and the middlemost from the ground.
42:7 And the wall that was without over against the chambers,
toward the utter court on the forepart of the chambers, the
length thereof was fifty cubits.
42:8 For the length of the chambers that were in the utter court
was fifty cubits: and, lo, before the temple were an hundred
42:9 And from under these chambers was the entry on the east side,
as one goeth into them from the utter court.
42:10 The chambers were in the thickness of the wall of the court
toward the east, over against the separate place, and over
against the building.
42:11 And the way before them was like the appearance of the
chambers which were toward the north, as long as they, and as
broad as they: and all their goings out were both according to
their fashions, and according to their doors.
42:12 And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward
the south was a door in the head of the way, even the way
directly before the wall toward the east, as one entereth into
42:13 Then said he unto me, The north chambers and the south
chambers, which are before the separate place, they be holy
chambers, where the priests that approach unto the LORD shall
eat the most holy things: there shall they lay the most holy
things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the
trespass offering; for the place is holy.
42:14 When the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of
the holy place into the utter court, but there they shall lay
their garments wherein they minister; for they are holy; and
shall put on other garments, and shall approach to those
things which are for the people.
42:15 Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he
brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the
east, and measured it round about.
42:16 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five
hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.
42:17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the
measuring reed round about.
42:18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the
42:19 He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred
reeds with the measuring reed.
42:20 He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about,
five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a
separation between the sanctuary and the profane place.
43:1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that
looketh toward the east:
43:2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way
of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters:
and the earth shined with his glory.
43:3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I
saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to
destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I
saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.
43:4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of
the gate whose prospect is toward the east.
43:5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court;
and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.
43:6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man
stood by me.
43:7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and
the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the
midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name,
shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor
their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their
kings in their high places.
43:8 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and
their post by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they
have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they
have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger.
43:9 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of
their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of
them for ever.
43:10 Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that
they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure
43:11 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them
the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings
out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms
thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms
thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their
sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the
ordinances thereof, and do them.
43:12 This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the
whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold,
this is the law of the house.
43:13 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The
cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be
a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by
the edge thereof round about shall be a span: and this shall
be the higher place of the altar.
43:14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle
shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the
lesser settle even to the greater settle shall be four cubits,
and the breadth one cubit.
43:15 So the altar shall be four cubits; and from the altar and
upward shall be four horns.
43:16 And the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad,
square in the four squares thereof.
43:17 And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen
broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it
shall be half a cubit; and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit
about; and his stairs shall look toward the east.
43:18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the
These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they
shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to
sprinkle blood thereon.
43:19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the
seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me,
saith the Lord GOD, a young bullock for a sin offering.
43:20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the
four horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and
upon the border round about: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge
43:21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he
shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the
43:22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats
without blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the
altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock.
43:23 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a
young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock
43:24 And thou shalt offer them before the LORD, and the priests
shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a
burnt offering unto the LORD.
43:25 Seven days shalt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin
offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram
out of the flock, without blemish.
43:26 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they
shall consecrate themselves.
43:27 And when these days are expired, it shall be, that upon the
eighth day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt
offerings upon the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will
accept you, saith the Lord GOD.
44:1 Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward
sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.
44:2 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall
not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it
shall be shut.
44:3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat
bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch
of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.
44:4 Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house:
and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the
house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face.
44:5 And the LORD said unto me, Son of man, mark well, and behold
with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto
thee concerning all the ordinances of the house of the LORD,
and all the laws thereof; and mark well the entering in of the
house, with every going forth of the sanctuary.
44:6 And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of
Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O ye house of Israel, let it
suffice you of all your abominations,
44:7 In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers,
uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in
my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my
bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant
because of all your abominations.
44:8 And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but ye
have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.
44:9 Thus saith the Lord GOD; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart,
nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of
any stranger that is among the children of Israel.
44:10 And the Levites that are gone away far from me, when Israel
went astray, which went astray away from me after their idols;
they shall even bear their iniquity.
44:11 Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having charge at
the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they
shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the
people, and they shall stand before them to minister unto
44:12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and
caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore
have I lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD,
and they shall bear their iniquity.
44:13 And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a
priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in
the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame, and
their abominations which they have committed.
44:14 But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for
all the service thereof, and for all that shall be done
44:15 But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the
charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray
from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and
they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the
blood, saith the Lord GOD:
44:16 They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near
to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my
44:17 And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the
gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen
garments; and no wool shall come upon them, whiles they
minister in the gates of the inner court, and within.
44:18 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have
linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird
themselves with any thing that causeth sweat.
44:19 And when they go forth into the utter court, even into the
utter court to the people, they shall put off their garments
wherein they ministered, and lay them in the holy chambers,
and they shall put on other garments; and they shall not
sanctify the people with their garments.
44:20 Neither shall they shave their heads, nor suffer their locks
to grow long; they shall only poll their heads.
44:21 Neither shall any priest drink wine, when they enter into the
44:22 Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that
is put away: but they shall take maidens of the seed of the
house of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before.
44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy
and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and
44:24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they
shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep
my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall
hallow my sabbaths.
44:25 And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves:
but for father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter,
for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may
44:26 And after he is cleansed, they shall reckon unto him seven
44:27 And in the day that he goeth into the sanctuary, unto the
inner court, to minister in the sanctuary, he shall offer his
sin offering, saith the Lord GOD.
44:28 And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their
inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I
am their possession.
44:29 They shall eat the meat offering, and the sin offering, and
the trespass offering: and every dedicated thing in Israel
shall be theirs.
44:30 And the first of all the firstfruits of all things, and every
oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the
priest's: ye shall also give unto the priest the first of your
dough, that he may cause the blessing to rest in thine house.
44:31 The priests shall not eat of any thing that is dead of itself,
or torn, whether it be fowl or beast.
45:1 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 length shall be the length of five
and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten
thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round
45:2 Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in
length, with five hundred in breadth, square round about; and
fifty cubits round about for the suburbs thereof.
45:3 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 sanctuary and the most holy place.
45:4 The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the
ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister
unto the LORD: and it shall be a place for their houses, and
an holy place for the sanctuary.
45:5 And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten
thousand of breadth shall also the Levites, the ministers of
the house, have for themselves, for a possession for twenty
45:6 And ye shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand
broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the
oblation of the holy portion: it shall be for the whole house
45:7 And a portion 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.
45:8 In the land shall be his possession in Israel: and my princes
shall no more oppress my people; and the rest of the land
shall they give to the house of Israel according to their
45:9 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Let it suffice you, O princes of
Israel: remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and
justice, take away your exactions from my people, saith the Lord GOD.
45:10 Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just
45:11 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath
may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the
tenth part of an homer: the measure thereof shall be after the
45:12 And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five
and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.
45:13 This is the oblation 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:
45:14 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:
45:15 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.
45:16 All the people of the land shall give this oblation for the
prince in Israel.
45:17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and
meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the
new moons, and in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the
house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the
meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace
offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.
45:18 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:
45:19 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.
45:20 And so thou shalt do the seventh day of the month for every
one that erreth, and for him that is simple: so shall ye
reconcile the house.
45:21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye
shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened
bread shall be eaten.
45:22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for
all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.
45:23 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 kid of the goats daily for a sin
45:24 And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a
bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an
45:25 In the seventh 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.
46:1 Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that
looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days;
but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the
new moon it shall be opened.
046:2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that
gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the
priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace
offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate:
then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until
46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of
this gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the new
46:4 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer unto the
LORD in the sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish,
and a ram without blemish.
46:5 And the meat offering shall be an ephah for a ram, and the
meat offering for the lambs as he shall be able to give, and
an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:6 And in the day of the new moon it shall be a young bullock
without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be
46:7 And he shall prepare a meat offering, an ephah for a bullock,
and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according as his
hand shall attain unto, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:8 And when 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
46:9 But when the people of the land shall come before the
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 over
46:10 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in, shall go
in; and when they go forth, shall go forth.
46:11 And in the feasts and in the solemnities the meat offering
shall be an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, and to
the lambs as he is able to give, and an hin of oil to an
46:12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt offering
or peace offerings voluntarily unto the LORD, one shall then
open him the gate that looketh toward the east, and he shall
prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, as he did
on the sabbath day: then he shall go forth; and after his
going forth one shall shut the gate.
46:13 Thou shalt daily prepare a burnt offering unto the
LORD of a
lamb of the first year without blemish: thou shalt prepare it
46:14 And thou shalt prepare a meat offering for it every morning,
the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of an hin of
oil, to temper with the fine flour; a meat offering
continually by a perpetual ordinance unto the LORD.
46:15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat offering, and
the oil, every morning for a continual burnt offering.
46:16 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.
46:17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of his
servants, then it shall be his to the year of liberty; after
it shall return to the prince: but his inheritance shall be
his sons' for them.
46:18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance
by 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.
46:19 After he brought me through the entry, which was at the side
of the gate, into the holy chambers of the priests, which
looked toward the north: and, behold, there was a place on the
two sides westward.
46:20 Then said he unto me, This is the place where the priests
shall boil the trespass offering and the sin offering, where
they shall bake the meat offering; that they bear them not out
into the utter court, to sanctify the people.
46:21 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.
46:22 In the four corners of the court there were courts joined of
forty cubits long and thirty broad: these four corners were of
46:23 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.
46:24 Then said he unto me, These are the places of them that boil,
where the ministers of the house shall boil the sacrifice of
47:1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and,
behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the
house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward
the east, and the waters came down from under from the right
side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
47:2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and
led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way
that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on
the right side.
47:3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth
eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me
through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
47:4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the
waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a
thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the
47:5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I
could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim
in, a river that could not be passed over.
47:6 And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he
brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.
47:7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were
very many trees on the one side and on the other.
47:8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east
country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea:
which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be
47:9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which
moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and
there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these
waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every
thing shall live whither the river cometh.
47:10 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon
it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to
spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their
kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.
47:11 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not
be healed; they shall be given to salt.
47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on
that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not
fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall
bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their
waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof
shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
47:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye
shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of
Israel: Joseph shall have two portions.
47:14 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning
the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers:
and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.
47:15 And this shall be the border of the land toward the north
side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go to
47:16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of
Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, which is by
the coast of Hauran.
47:17 And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of
Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath.
And this is the north side.
47:18 And the east side ye shall measure from Hauran, and from
Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel by
Jordan, from the border unto the east sea. And this is the
47:19 And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of
strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the
south side southward.
47:20 The west side also shall be the great sea from the border,
till a man come over against Hamath. This is the west side.
47:21 So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes
47:22 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for
an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn
among you, which shall beget children among you: and they
shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of
Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes
47:23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger
sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.
48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to
the coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath,
Hazarenan, the border of Damascus northward, to the coast of
Hamath; for these are his sides east and west; a portion for
48:2 And by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west
side, a portion for Asher.
48:3 And by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the
west side, a portion for Naphtali.
48:4 And by the border of Naphtali, from the east side unto the
west side, a portion for Manasseh.
48:5 And by the border of Manasseh, from the east side unto the
west side, a portion for Ephraim.
48:6 And by the border of Ephraim, from the east side even unto the
west side, a portion for Reuben.
48:7 And by the border of Reuben, from the east side unto the west
side, a portion for Judah.
48:8 And by the border of Judah, from the east side unto the west
side, shall be the offering which ye shall offer of five and
twenty thousand reeds in breadth, and in length as one of the
other parts, from the east side unto the west side: and the
sanctuary shall be in the midst of it.
48:9 The oblation that ye shall offer unto the LORD shall be of
five and twenty thousand in length, and of ten thousand in
48:10 And for them, even for the priests, shall be this holy
oblation; toward the north five and twenty thousand in length,
and toward the west ten thousand in breadth, and toward the
east ten thousand in breadth, and toward the south five and
twenty thousand in length: and the sanctuary of the LORD shall
be in the midst thereof.
48:11 It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of
Zadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when
the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites went
48:12 And this oblation of the land that is offered shall be unto
them a thing most holy by the border of the Levites.
48:13 And over against the border of the priests the Levites shall
have five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in
breadth: all the length shall be five and twenty thousand, and
the breadth ten thousand.
48:14 And they shall not sell of it, neither exchange, nor alienate
the firstfruits of the land: for it is holy unto the LORD.
48:15 And the five thousand, that are left in the breadth over
against the five and twenty thousand, shall be a profane place
for the city, for dwelling, and for suburbs: and the city
shall be in the midst thereof.
48:16 And these shall be the measures thereof; the north side four
thousand and five hundred, and the south side four thousand
and five hundred, and on the east side four thousand and five
hundred, and the west side four thousand and five hundred.
48:17 And the suburbs of the city shall be toward the north two
hundred and fifty, and toward the south two hundred and fifty,
and toward the east two hundred and fifty, and toward the west
two hundred and fifty.
48:18 And the residue in length over against the oblation of the
holy portion shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand
westward: and it shall be over against the oblation of the
holy portion; and the increase thereof shall be for food unto
them that serve the city.
48:19 And they that serve the city shall serve it out of all the
tribes of Israel.
48:20 All the oblation shall be five and twenty thousand by five and
twenty thousand: ye shall offer the holy oblation foursquare,
with the possession of the city.
48:21 And the residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and
on the other of the holy oblation, and of the possession of
the city, over against the five and twenty thousand of the
oblation toward the east border, and westward over against the
five and twenty thousand toward the west border, over against
the portions for the prince: and it shall be the holy
oblation; and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst
48:22 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the
possession of the city, being in the midst of that which is
the prince's, between the border of Judah and the border of
Benjamin, shall be for the prince.
48:23 As for the rest of the tribes, from the east side unto the
west side, Benjamin shall have a portion.
48:24 And by the border of Benjamin, from the east side unto the
west side, Simeon shall have a portion.
48:25 And by the border of Simeon, from the east side unto the west
side, Issachar a portion.
48:26 And by the border of Issachar, from the east side unto the
west side, Zebulun a portion.
48:27 And by the border of Zebulun, from the east side unto the west
side, Gad a portion.
48:28 And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the
border shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of strife in
Kadesh, and to the river toward the great sea.
48:29 This is the land which ye shall divide by lot unto the tribes
of Israel for inheritance, and these are their portions, saith
the Lord GOD.
48:30 And these are the goings out of the city on the north side,
four thousand and five hundred measures.
48:31 And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the
tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben,
one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi.
48:32 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three
gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate
48:33 And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures:
and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one
gate of Zebulun.
48:34 At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their
three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of
48:35 It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of
the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.
