Ezekiel, Chapter 45

45:1 Moreover, when you+ will divide by lot the land for inheritance, you+ will offer an oblation to Yahweh, a holy portion of the land; the length will be the length of five and twenty thousand [reeds], and the width will be twenty thousand: it will be holy in all its border round about.
45:2 Of this there will be for the holy place five hundred [in length] by five hundred [in width], square round about; and fifty cubits for its suburbs round about.
45:3 And of this measure you will measure a length of five and twenty thousand, and a width of ten thousand: and in it will be the sanctuary, which is most holy.
45:4 It is a holy portion of the land; it will be for the priests, the ministers of the sanctuary, who come near to minister to Yahweh; and it will be a place for their houses, and a holy place for the sanctuary.
45:5 And five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in width, will be to the Levites, the ministers of the house, for a possession to themselves, [for] cities to live in.
45:6 And you+ will appoint the possession of the city five thousand broad, and five and twenty thousand long, side by side with the oblation of the holy portion: it will be for the whole house of Israel.
45:7 And [whatever is] for the prince [will be] on the one side and on the other side of the holy oblation and of the possession of the city, in front of the holy oblation and in front of the possession of the city, on the west side westward, and on the east side eastward; and in length answerable to one of the portions, from the west border to the east border.
45:8 In the land it will be to him for a possession in Israel: and my princes will no more oppress my people; but they will give the land to the house of Israel according to their tribes.
45:9 Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Let it suffice you+, O princes of Israel: remove violence and spoil, and execute justice and righteousness; take away your+ exactions from my people, says the Sovereign Yahweh.
45:10 You+ will have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath.
45:11 The ephah and the bath will be of one measure, that the bath may contain the tenth part of a homer, and the ephah the tenth part of a homer: its measure will be after the homer.
45:12 And the shekel will be twenty gerahs; twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, will be your+ maneh.
45:13 This is the oblation that you+ will offer: the sixth part of an ephah from a homer of wheat; and you+ will give the sixth part of an ephah from a homer of barley;
45:14 and the set portion of oil, of the bath of oil, the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, [which is] ten baths, even a homer (for ten baths are a homer);
45:15 and one lamb of the flock, out of two hundred, from the well-watered pastures of Israel; -for a meal-offering, and for a burnt-offering, and for peace-offerings, to make atonement for them, says the Sovereign Yahweh.
45:16 All the people of the land will give to this oblation for the prince in Israel.
45:17 And it will be the prince's part to give the burnt-offerings, and the meal-offerings, and the drink-offerings, in the feasts, and on the new moons, and on the Sabbaths, in all the appointed feasts of the house of Israel: he will prepare the sin-offering, and the meal-offering, and the burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings, to make atonement for the house of Israel.
45:18 Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: In the first [month], in the first [day] of the month, you will take a young bull without blemish; and you will cleanse the sanctuary.
45:19 And the priest will take of the blood of the sin-offering, and put it on the door-posts of the house, and on the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and on the posts of the gate of the inner court.
45:20 And so you will do on the seventh [day] of the month for everyone who errs, and for him who is simple: so you+ will make atonement for the house.
45:21 In the first [month], in the fourteenth day of the month, you+ will have the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread will be eaten.
45:22 And on that day the prince will prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bull for a sin-offering.
45:23 And the seven days of the feast he will prepare a burnt-offering to Yahweh, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a he-goat daily for a sin-offering.
45:24 And he will prepare a meal-offering, an ephah for a bull, and an ephah for a ram, and a hin of oil to an ephah.
45:25 In the seventh [month], in the fifteenth day of the month, in the feast, he will do the like the seven days; according to the sin-offering, according to the burnt-offering, and according to the meal-offering, and according to the oil.
