Ezekiel 43


43:1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, [even] the gate that
 looketh towards 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 Kebar; 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] towards 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 to me out of the house; and the
 man stood by me.
43:7 And he said to 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 lewd deeds, nor by the carcasses of their
 kings in their high places.
43:8 In their setting of their threshhold by my threshholds, 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 my anger.
43:9 Now let them put away their lewd deeds, and the carcasses
 of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of
 them for ever.
43:10 Thou son of man, show the house to the house of Israel,
 that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them
 measure the pattern.
43:11 And if they shall be ashamed of all that they have done,
 show them the form of the house, and the fashion of it, and its
 goings out, and its comings in, and all its forms, and all its
 ordinances, and all its forms, and all its laws: and write [it]
 in their sight, that they may keep the whole form of it, and
 all its ordinances, and do them.
43:12 This [is] the law of the house; Upon the top of the
 mountain, the whole limit of it around [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 a hand-breadth; even the
 bottom [shall be] a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the
 border of it by its edge around [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 of it.
43:17 And the settle [shall be] fourteen [cubits] long and
 fourteen broad in its four squares; and the border about it
 [shall be] half a cubit; and the bottom of it [shall be] a
 cubit about; and its stairs shall look towards the east.
43:18 And he said to me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD;
 These [are] the ordinances of the altar in the day when they
 shall make it, to offer burnt-offerings upon it, and to
 sprinkle blood upon it.
43:19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that are of
 the seed of Zadok, who approach to me, to minister to me, saith
 the Lord GOD, a young bullock for a sin-offering.
43:20 And thou shalt take of his blood, and put [it] on the four
 horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon
 the border around: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it.
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 sanctuary.
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 cleansed [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 without blemish.
43:24 And thou shalt offer them before the LORD, and the priests
 shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them [for] a
 burnt-offering to 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 have 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.
