Vision of the Glory of God Filling the Temple

1 Then he led me to the gate, R1601 the gate facing toward the east; 2 and behold, the glory R1602 of the God of Israel was coming from the way of the east. R1603 And His voice R1604 was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone R1605 with His glory. 3 And it was like the appearance of the vision which I saw, like the vision R1606 which I saw when He F646 came to destroy R1607 the city. And the visions were like the vision which I saw by the river R1608 Chebar; and I fell R1609 on my face. 4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate facing toward the east. R1610 5 And the Spirit R1611 lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory R1612 of the LORD filled the house.

6 Then I heard one speaking to me from the house, while a man R1613 was standing beside me. 7 He said to me, "Son of man, this is the place of My throne R1614 and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell R1615 among the sons of Israel forever. And the house of Israel will not again defile My holy name, neither they nor their kings, by their harlotry and by the corpses R1616 F647 of their kings when F648 they die, 8 by setting their threshold by My threshold and their door post beside My door post, with only the wall between Me and them. And they have defiled R1617 My holy name by their abominations which they have committed. So I have consumed them in My anger. 9 "Now let them put R1618 away their harlotry and the corpses F649 of their kings far from Me; and I will dwell R1619 among them forever.

10 "As for you, son of man, describe R1620 F650 the temple F651 to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed R1621 of their iniquities; and let them measure the plan. R1622 F652 11 "If they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design F653 of the house, its structure, its exits, R1623 its entrances, all its designs, all its statutes, F654 and all its laws. And write it in R1624 their sight, so that they may observe its whole design F653 and all its statutes and do R1625 them. 12 "This is the law F655 of the house: its entire area F656 on the top of the mountain R1626 all around shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law F655 of the house.

The Altar of Sacrifice

13 "And these are the measurements of the altar R1627 by cubits (the cubit R1628 being a cubit and a handbreadth): the base F657 shall be a cubit and the width a cubit, and its border on its edge round about one span; and this shall be the height of the base F658 of the altar. 14 "From the base on the ground to the lower ledge R1629 shall be two cubits and the width one cubit; and from the smaller ledge to the larger ledge shall be four cubits and the width one F659 cubit. 15 "The altar F660 hearth shall be four cubits; and from the altar F660 hearth shall extend upwards four horns. R1630 16 "Now the altar F661 hearth shall be twelve cubits long by twelve wide, square R1631 in its four sides. 17 "The ledge shall be fourteen cubits long by fourteen wide in its four sides, the border around it shall be half a cubit and its base shall be a cubit round about; and its steps R1632 shall face R1633 F662 the east."

The Offerings

18 And He said to me, "Son R1634 of man, thus says the Lord GOD F663 , `These are the statutes for the altar on the day it is built, to offer burnt R1635 offerings on it and to sprinkle R1636 blood on it. 19 `You shall give to the Levitical priests who are from the offspring of Zadok, R1637 who draw near R1638 to Me to minister to Me,' declares the Lord GOD, `a young R1639 bull for a sin R1640 offering. 20 `You shall take some of its blood and put it on its four horns R1641 and on the four corners of the ledge R1642 and on the border round about; thus you shall cleanse R1643 it and make atonement for it. 21 `You shall also take the bull for the sin offering, and it shall be burned R1644 in the appointed place of the house, outside the sanctuary.

22 `On the second day you shall offer a male R1645 goat without blemish for a sin offering, and they shall cleanse R1646 the altar as they cleansed it with the bull. 23 `When you have finished cleansing it, you shall present a young R1647 bull without blemish and a ram R1648 without blemish from the flock. 24 `You shall present them before the LORD, and the priests shall throw salt R1649 on them, and they shall offer them up as a burnt offering to the LORD. 25 `For R1650 seven days you shall prepare daily a goat for a sin offering; also a young bull and a ram from the flock, without blemish, shall be prepared. 26 `For seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it; so shall they consecrate F664 it. 27 `When they have completed the days, it shall be that on the eighth R1651 day and onward, the priests shall offer F665 your burnt offerings on the altar, and your peace R1652 offerings; and I will accept R1653 you,' declares the Lord GOD."
