Then he broughtH7725 me backH7725 the wayH1870 of the gateH8179 of the outwardH2435 sanctuaryH4720 which looksH6437 toward the east;H6921 and it was shut.H5462
Then saidH559 the LORDH3068 to me; ThisH2088 gateH8179 shall be shut,H5462 it shall not be opened,H6605 and noH3808 manH376 shall enterH935 in by it; becauseH3588 the LORD,H3068 the GodH430 of Israel,H3478 has enteredH935 in by it, therefore it shall be shut.H5462
It is for the prince;H5387 the prince,H5387 he shall sitH3427 in it to eatH398 breadH3899 beforeH6440 the LORD;H3068 he shall enterH935 by the wayH1870 of the porchH197 of that gate,H8179 and shall goH3318 out by the wayH1870 of the same.
Then broughtH935 he me the wayH1870 of the northH6828 gateH8179 beforeH413 H6440 the house:H1004 and I looked,H7200 and, behold,H2009 the gloryH3519 of the LORDH3068 filledH4390 the houseH1004 of the LORD:H3068 and I fellH5307 on my face.H6440
And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to me, SonH1121 of man,H120 markH7760 well, and beholdH7200 with your eyes,H5869 and hearH8085 with your earsH241 allH3605 that I sayH1696 to you concerning allH3605 the ordinancesH2708 of the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and allH3605 the lawsH8451 thereof; and markH7760 well the enteringH3996 in of the house,H1004 with everyH3605 goingH4161 forthH4161 of the sanctuary.H4720
And you shall sayH559 to the rebellious,H4805 even to the houseH1004 of Israel,H3478 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LordH136 GOD;H3069 O you houseH1004 of Israel,H3478 let it sufficeH7227 you of allH3605 your abominations,H8441
In that you have broughtH935 into my sanctuary strangers,H1121 H5236 uncircumcisedH6189 in heart,H3820 and uncircumcisedH6189 in flesh,H1320 to be in my sanctuary,H4720 to polluteH2490 it, evenH853 my house,H1004 when you offerH7126 my bread,H3899 the fatH2459 and the blood,H1818 and they have brokenH6565 my covenantH1285 becauseH413 of allH3605 your abominations.H8441
And you have not keptH8104 the chargeH4931 of my holyH6944 things: but you have setH7760 keepersH8104 of my chargeH4931 in my sanctuaryH4720 for yourselves.
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LordH136 GOD;H3069 NoH3808 stranger,H1121 H5236 uncircumcisedH6189 in heart,H3820 nor uncircumcisedH6189 in flesh,H1320 shall enterH935 intoH413 my sanctuary,H4720 of anyH3605 strangerH1121 H5236 that is amongH8432 the childrenH1121 of Israel.H3478
And the LevitesH3881 that are gone away farH7350 from me, when IsraelH3478 wentH8582 astray,H8582 whichH834 wentH8582 astrayH8582 away from me afterH310 their idols;H1544 they shall even bearH5375 their iniquity.H5771
Yet they shall be ministersH8334 in my sanctuary,H4720 having chargeH6486 atH413 the gatesH8179 of the house,H1004 and ministeringH8334 to the house:H1004 they shall slayH7819 the burntH5930 offering and the sacrificeH2077 for the people,H5971 and they shall standH5975 beforeH6440 them to ministerH8334 to them.
BecauseH3282 H834 they ministeredH8334 to them beforeH6440 their idols,H1544 and caused the houseH1004 of IsraelH3478 to fallH4383 into iniquity;H5771 thereforeH5921 H3651 have I liftedH5375 up my handH3027 againstH5921 them, saidH5002 the LordH136 GOD,H3069 and they shall bearH5375 their iniquity.H5771
And they shall not comeH5066 nearH5066 to me, to do the office of a priestH3547 to me, nor to comeH5066 nearH5066 to anyH3605 of my holyH6944 things, in the mostH6944 holyH6944 place: but they shall bearH5375 their shame,H3639 and their abominationsH8441 whichH834 they have committed.H6213
But I will make them keepersH8104 of the chargeH4931 of the house,H1004 for allH3605 the serviceH5656 thereof, and for allH3605 that shall be doneH6213 therein.
But the priestsH3548 the Levites,H3881 the sonsH1121 of Zadok,H6659 that keptH8104 the chargeH4931 of my sanctuaryH4720 when the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 wentH8582 astrayH8582 from me, they shall comeH7126 nearH7126 to me to ministerH8334 to me, and they shall standH5975 beforeH6440 me to offerH7126 to me the fatH2459 and the blood,H1818 saidH5002 the LordH136 GOD:H3069
They shall enterH935 intoH413 my sanctuary,H4720 and they shall comeH7126 nearH7126 to my table,H7979 to ministerH8334 to me, and they shall keepH8104 my charge.H4931
And it shall comeH1961 to pass, that when they enterH935 in atH413 the gatesH8179 of the innerH6442 court,H2691 they shall be clothedH3847 with linenH6593 garments;H899 and noH3808 woolH6785 shall comeH5927 on them, whiles they ministerH8334 in the gatesH8179 of the innerH6442 court,H2691 and within.H1004
They shall haveH1961 linenH6593 bonnetsH6287 on their heads,H7218 and shall haveH1961 linenH6593 breechesH4370 on their loins;H4975 they shall not girdH2296 themselves with any thing that causes sweat.H3154
And when they goH3318 forthH3318 intoH413 the utterH2435 court,H2691 even intoH413 the utterH2435 courtH2691 to the people,H5971 they shall putH6584 off their garmentsH899 whereinH834 they ministered,H8334 and layH3240 them in the holyH6944 chambers,H3957 and they shall putH3847 on otherH312 garments;H899 and they shall not sanctifyH6942 the peopleH5971 with their garments.H899
NeitherH3808 shall they shaveH1548 their heads,H7218 norH3808 suffer their locksH6545 to growH7971 long; they shall onlyH3697 pollH3697 their heads.H7218
NeitherH3808 shall anyH3605 priestH3548 drinkH8354 wine,H3196 when they enterH935 intoH413 the innerH6442 court.H2691
NeitherH3808 shall they takeH3947 for their wivesH802 a widow,H490 nor her that is putH1644 away: but they shall takeH3947 maidensH1330 of the seedH2233 of the houseH1004 of Israel,H3478 or a widowH490 that hadH1961 a priestH3548 before.
And they shall teachH3384 my peopleH5971 the difference betweenH996 the holyH6944 and profane,H2455 and cause them to discernH3045 betweenH996 the uncleanH2931 and the clean.H2889
And in controversyH7379 they shall standH5975 in judgment;H8199 and they shall judgeH8199 it according to my judgments:H4941 and they shall keepH8104 my lawsH8451 and my statutesH2708 in allH3605 my assemblies;H4150 and they shall hallowH6942 my sabbaths.H7676
And they shall comeH935 atH413 noH3808 deadH4191 personH120 to defileH2930 themselves: but for father,H1 or for mother,H517 or for son,H1121 or for daughter,H1323 for brother,H251 or for sisterH269 that has hadH1961 noH3808 husband,H376 they may defileH2930 themselves.
And afterH310 he is cleansed,H2893 they shall reckonH5608 to him sevenH7651 days.H3117
And in the dayH3117 that he goesH935 intoH413 the sanctuary,H6944 to the innerH6442 court,H2691 to ministerH8334 in the sanctuary,H6944 he shall offerH7126 his sinH2403 offering, saidH5002 the LordH136 GOD.H3069
And it shall be to them for an inheritance:H5159 I am their inheritance:H5159 and you shall giveH5414 them noH3808 possessionH272 in Israel:H3478 I am their possession.H272
They shall eatH398 the meat offering,H4503 and the sinH2403 offering, and the trespassH817 offering: and everyH3605 dedicatedH2764 thing in IsraelH3478 shall be theirs.H1992
And the firstH7225 of allH3605 the first fruitsH1061 of allH3605 things, and everyH3605 oblationH8641 of all,H3605 of everyH3605 sort of your oblations,H8641 shall be the priest's:H3548 you shall also giveH5414 to the priestH3548 the firstH7225 of your dough,H6182 that he may cause the blessingH1293 to restH5117 in your house.H1004
The priestsH3548 shall not eatH398 of anyH3605 thing that is deadH5038 of itself, or torn,H2966 whetherH4480 it be fowlH5775 or beast.H929
