Ezekiel 45

1 “Moreover, when you shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, you shall offer an oblation unto יהוה, 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 about.

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.

3 And of this measure shalt you 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.

4 The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests (kohanim) the ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister unto יהוה; and it shall be a place for their houses, and a holy place for the sanctuary.

5 And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten thousand of breadth, shall also the Levites (Lewiyim), the ministers of the house, have for themselves, for a possession for twenty chambers.

6 And you shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand broad, and five and twenty thousand long, opposite the oblation of the holy portion; it shall be for the whole house of Yisrael.

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 opposite one of the portions, from the west border unto the east border.

8 In the land shall be his possession in Yisrael; and My princes shall no more oppress My people; and the rest of the land shall they give to the house of Yisrael according to their tribes.”

9 Thus saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה: “Let it suffice you, O princes of Yisrael; remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away your exactions from My people,” saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה.

10 “You shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath.

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

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

13 This is the oblation that you shall offer; the sixth part of an ephah of a homer of wheat, and you shall give the sixth part of an ephah of a homer of barley.

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

15 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the fat pastures of Yisrael; for a meat offering, and for a burnt offering, and for peace offerings, to make reconciliation for them,” saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה.

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

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 Shabbats, in all solemnities of the house of Yisrael. 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 Yisrael.”

18 Thus saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה: “In the first month, in the first day of the month, you shalt take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the sanctuary:

19 And the priest (kohen) 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 you shalt do the seventh day of the month for every one that erreth, and for him that is simple; so shall you reconcile the house.

21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, you shall have the Pesach, a feast of seven days; unleavened 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 יהוה, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a kid 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 oil for an ephah.

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.”
