Teks -- Ezekiel 44:1-31 (NET)
The Closed Gate44:1 Then he brought me back by way of the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces east , but it was shut . 44:2 The Lord said to me: “This gate will be shut ; it will not be opened , and no one will enter by it. For the Lord , the God of Israel , has entered by it; therefore it will remain shut . 44:3 Only the prince may sit in it to eat a sacrificial meal before the Lord ; he will enter by way of the porch of the gate and will go out by the same way .” 44:4 Then he brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the temple . As I watched , I noticed the glory of the Lord filling the Lord’s temple , and I threw myself face down . 44:5 The Lord said to me: “Son of man , pay attention , watch closely and listen carefully to everything I tell you concerning all the statutes of the Lord’s house and all its laws . Pay attention to the entrances to the temple with all the exits of the sanctuary . 44:6 Say to the rebellious , to the house of Israel , ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says : Enough of all your abominable practices , O house of Israel ! 44:7 When you bring foreigners , those uncircumcised in heart and in flesh , into my sanctuary , you desecrate it– even my house – when you offer my food , the fat and the blood . You have broken my covenant by all your abominable practices . 44:8 You have not kept charge of my holy things , but you have assigned foreigners to keep charge of my sanctuary for you. 44:9 This is what the sovereign Lord says : No foreigner , who is uncircumcised in heart and flesh among all the foreigners who are among the people of Israel , will enter into my sanctuary . 44:10 “‘But the Levites who went far from me, straying off from me after their idols when Israel went astray , will be responsible for their sin . 44:11 Yet they will be ministers in my sanctuary , having oversight at the gates of the temple , and serving the temple . They will slaughter the burnt offerings and the sacrifices for the people , and they will stand before them to minister to them. 44:12 Because they used to minister to them before their idols , and became a sinful obstacle to the house of Israel , consequently I have made a vow concerning them, declares the sovereign Lord , that they will be responsible for their sin . 44:13 They will not come near me to serve me as priest , nor will they come near any of my holy things , the things which are most sacred . They will bear the shame of the abominable deeds they have committed . 44:14 Yet I will appoint them to keep charge of the temple , all of its service and all that will be done in it.
The Levitical Priests44:15 “‘But the Levitical priests , the descendants of Zadok who kept the charge of my sanctuary when the people of Israel went astray from me, will approach me to minister to me; they will stand before me to offer me the fat and the blood , declares the sovereign Lord . 44:16 They will enter my sanctuary , and approach my table to minister to me; they will keep my charge . 44:17 “‘When they enter the gates of the inner court , they must wear linen garments ; they must not have any wool on them when they minister in the inner gates of the court and in the temple . 44:18 Linen turbans will be on their heads and linen undergarments will be around their waists ; they must not bind themselves with anything that causes sweat . 44:19 When they go out to the outer court to the people , they must remove the garments they were ministering in, and place them in the holy chambers ; they must put on other garments so that they will not transmit holiness to the people with their garments . 44:20 “‘They must not shave their heads nor let their hair grow long ; they must only trim their heads . 44:21 No priest may drink wine when he enters the inner court . 44:22 They must not marry a widow or a divorcee , but they may marry a virgin from the house of Israel or a widow who is a priest’s widow . 44:23 Moreover, they will teach my people the difference between the holy and the common , and show them how to distinguish between the ceremonially unclean and the clean . 44:24 “‘In a controversy they will act as judges ; they will judge according to my ordinances . They will keep my laws and my statutes regarding all my appointed festivals and will observe my Sabbaths . 44:25 “‘They must not come near a dead person or they will be defiled ; however, for father , mother , son , daughter , brother or sister , they may defile themselves. 44:26 After a priest has become ceremonially clean , they must count off a period of seven days for him. 44:27 On the day he enters the sanctuary , into the inner court to serve in the sanctuary , he must offer his sin offering , declares the sovereign Lord . 44:28 “‘This will be their inheritance : I am their inheritance , and you must give them no property in Israel ; I am their property . 44:29 They may eat the grain offering , the sin offering , and the guilt offering , and every devoted thing in Israel will be theirs. 44:30 The first of all the first fruits and all contributions of any kind will be for the priests ; you will also give to the priest the first portion of your dough , so that a blessing may rest on your house . 44:31 The priests will not eat any bird or animal that has died a natural death or was torn to pieces by a wild animal.
