thus saith the Lord God ; These are the *
ordinances of the altar in the day when they
shall make it, to oflfer burnt-offerings thereon,
and to ^sprinkle blood thereon.

19 And thou shalt give to ''the priests
the Levites that be of the seed of Zadok,
which approach unto Ine, to minister unto
me, saith the Lord God, <= a young bullock
for a sin-offering.

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 it.

21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of
the sin-off'ering, and he ''shall burn it in
the appointed place of the house, " without
the sanctuary.

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.

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.

stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncir-
cumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctu-
ary, of any stranger that is among the chil-
dren of Israel.

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.

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, arid " they shall stand before
them to minister unto them.

12 Because they ministered unto them
before their idols, and ^f caused the house
of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have

me, to do the office of a priest unto me,
nor to come near to any of my holy things,

2 "And the prince shall enter by the way
of the porch o'f that gate without, and shall
stand by the post of the gate, and the priests
shall prepare his burnt-oftering and his peace-
offerings, and he shall worship at the thresh-
old of the gate : then he shall go forth.; but
the gate shall not be shut until the evening.

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-moons.

i 4 And the burnt-offering that ''the prince
shall offer unto the Lord in the sabbath day
shall he six Iambs without blemish, and a ram
without blemish.

5 ''And the meat-offering shall he an ephah
for a ram, and the meat-off'ering for the lambs

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 thereof.

9 IT But when the people of the land " shall
come before the Lord in 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 against it.

when they go in, shall go in ; and when they
go forth, shall go forth.

for it every morning, the sixth part 6f an

continually by a perpetual ordinance unto
the Lord.

15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and
the nieat-offering, and the oil, every morning
for a continual burnt-offering.

16 II 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
he their possession by inheritance.

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.

18 Moreover, •'the prince shall not take
of the people's inheritance by oppression, to
thrust them out of their possession ; hut he
shall give his sons inheritance out of his own
possession : that my people be not scattered
every man from his possession.

19 IT 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.

20 Then said he unto me. This is the
place where the priests shall 'boil the tres-
pass-offering and the sin-offering, where they
shall ""bake the meat-offering; that they bear
them not out into the outer court, "to sanc-
tify the people.

21 Then he brought me forth into the outer
court, and caused me to pass by the four
corners of the court ; and behold, t in every
corner of the court there was a court.

22 In the four corners of the court there
were courts || joined of forty cubits long and
