Ezekiel 44


1  Then he brought me back7725 853 the way1870 of the gate8179 of the outward2435 sanctuary4720 which looketh6437 toward the east;6921 and it1931 was shut.5462

2  Then said559 the LORD3068 unto413 me; This2088 gate8179 shall be1961 shut,5462 it shall not3808 be opened,6605 and no3808 man376 shall enter in935 by it; because3588 the LORD,3068 the God430 of Israel,3478 hath entered in935 by it, therefore it shall be1961 shut.5462

3  It is 853 for the prince;5387 the prince,5387 he1931 shall sit3427 in it to eat398 bread3899 before6440 the LORD;3068 he shall enter935 by the way4480 1870 of the porch197 of that gate,8179 and shall go out3318 by the way4480 1870 of the same.

4  Then brought935 he me the way1870 of the north6828 gate8179 before413 6440 the house:1004 and I looked,7200 and, behold,2009 the glory3519 of the LORD3068 filled4390 853 the house1004 of the LORD:3068 and I fell5307 upon413 my face.6440

5  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 mark well,7760 3820 and behold7200 with thine eyes,5869 and hear8085 with thine ears241 853 all3605 that834 I589 say1696 unto thee concerning all3605 the ordinances2708 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and all3605 the laws8451 thereof; and mark well7760 3820 the entering in3996 of the house,1004 with every3605 going forth4161 of the sanctuary.4720

6  And thou shalt say559 to413 the rebellious,4805 even to413 the house1004 of Israel,3478 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 O ye house1004 of Israel,3478 let it suffice7227 you of4480 all3605 your abominations,8441

7  In that ye have brought935 into my sanctuary strangers,1121 5236 uncircumcised6189 in heart,3820 and uncircumcised6189 in flesh,1320 to be1961 in my sanctuary,4720 to pollute2490 it, even 853 my house,1004 when ye offer7126 853 my bread,3899 the fat2459 and the blood,1818 and they have broken6565 853 my covenant1285 because of413 all3605 your abominations.8441

8  And ye have not3808 kept8104 the charge4931 of mine holy things:6944 but ye have set7760 keepers8104 of my charge4931 in my sanctuary4720 for yourselves.

9  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 No3808 3605 stranger,1121 5236 uncircumcised6189 in heart,3820 nor uncircumcised6189 in flesh,1320 shall enter935 into413 my sanctuary,4720 of any3605 stranger1121 5236 that834 is among8432 the children1121 of Israel.3478

10  And3588 518 the Levites3881 that834 are gone away far7368 from4480 5921 me, when Israel3478 went astray,8582 which834 went astray8582 away from4480 5921 me after310 their idols;1544 they shall even bear5375 their iniquity.5771

11  Yet they shall be1961 ministers8334 in my sanctuary,4720 having charge6486 at413 the gates8179 of the house,1004 and ministering8334 853 to the house:1004 they1992 shall slay7819 853 the burnt offering5930 and the sacrifice2077 for the people,5971 and they1992 shall stand5975 before6440 them to minister8334 unto them.

12  Because3282 834 they ministered unto8334 853 them before6440 their idols,1544 and caused1961 the house1004 of Israel3478 to fall4383 into iniquity;5771 therefore5921 3651 have I lifted up5375 mine hand3027 against5921 them, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 and they shall bear5375 their iniquity.5771

13  And they shall not3808 come near5066 unto413 me, to do the office of a priest3547 unto me, nor to come near5066 to5921 any3605 of my holy things,6944 in413 the most holy6944 6944 place: but they shall bear5375 their shame,3639 and their abominations8441 which834 they have committed.6213

14  But I will make5414 them keepers8104 of the charge4931 of the house,1004 for all3605 the service5656 thereof, and for all3605 that834 shall be done6213 therein.

15  But the priests3548 the Levites,3881 the sons1121 of Zadok,6659 that834 kept8104 853 the charge4931 of my sanctuary4720 when the children1121 of Israel3478 went astray8582 from4480 5921 me, they1992 shall come near7126 to413 me to minister8334 unto me, and they shall stand5975 before6440 me to offer7126 unto me the fat2459 and the blood,1818 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD:3069

16  They1992 shall enter935 into413 my sanctuary,4720 and they1992 shall come near7126 to413 my table,7979 to minister8334 unto me, and they shall keep8104 853 my charge.4931

17  And it shall come to pass,1961 that when they enter in935 at413 the gates8179 of the inner6442 court,2691 they shall be clothed with3847 linen6593 garments;899 and no3808 wool6785 shall come5927 upon5921 them, while they minister8334 in the gates8179 of the inner6442 court,2691 and within.1004

18  They shall have1961 linen6593 bonnets6287 upon5921 their heads,7218 and shall have1961 linen6593 breeches4370 upon5921 their loins;4975 they shall not3808 gird2296 themselves with any thing that causeth sweat.3154

19  And when they go forth3318 into413 the utter2435 court,2691 even into413 the utter2435 court2691 to413 the people,5971 they shall put off6584 853 their garments899 wherein834 they1992 ministered,8334 and lay5117 them in the holy6944 chambers,3957 and they shall put on3847 other312 garments;899 and they shall not3808 sanctify6942 853 the people5971 with their garments.899

20  Neither3808 shall they shave1548 their heads,7218 nor3808 suffer their locks6545 to grow long;7971 they shall only poll3697 3697 853 their heads.7218

21  Neither3808 shall any3605 priest3548 drink8354 wine,3196 when they enter935 into413 the inner6442 court.2691

22  Neither3808 shall they take3947 for their wives802 a widow,490 nor her that is put away:1644 but3588 518 they shall take3947 maidens1330 of the seed4480 2233 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 or a widow490 that834 had1961 a priest4480 3548 before.

23  And they shall teach3384 my people5971 the difference between996 the holy6944 and profane,2455 and cause them to discern3045 between996 the unclean2931 and the clean.2889

24  And in5921 controversy7379 they1992 shall stand5975 in judgment;8199 and they shall judge8199 it according to my judgments:4941 and they shall keep8104 my laws8451 and my statutes2708 in all3605 mine assemblies;4150 and they shall hallow6942 my sabbaths.7676

25  And they shall come935 at413 no3808 dead4191 person120 to defile2930 themselves: but3588 518 for father,1 or for mother,517 or for son,1121 or for daughter,1323 for brother,251 or for sister269 that834 hath had1961 no3808 husband,376 they may defile themselves.2930

26  And after310 he is cleansed,2893 they shall reckon5608 unto him seven7651 days.3117

27  And in the day3117 that he goeth935 into413 the sanctuary,6944 unto413 the inner6442 court,2691 to minister8334 in the sanctuary,6944 he shall offer7126 his sin offering,2403 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

28  And it shall be1961 unto them for an inheritance:5159 I589 am their inheritance:5159 and ye shall give5414 them no3808 possession272 in Israel:3478 I589 am their possession.272

29  They1992 shall eat398 the meat offering,4503 and the sin offering,2403 and the trespass offering;817 and every3605 dedicated thing2764 in Israel3478 shall be1961 theirs.

30  And the first7225 of all3605 the firstfruits1061 of all3605 things, and every3605 oblation8641 of all,3605 of every4480 3605 sort of your oblations,8641 shall be1961 the priest's:3548 ye shall also give5414 unto the priest3548 the first7225 of your dough,6182 that he may cause the blessing1293 to rest5117 in413 thine house.1004

31  The priests3548 shall not3808 eat398 of any thing3605 that is dead of itself,5038 or torn,2966 whether4480 it be fowl5775 or4480 beast.929


1 καὶ ἐπέστρεψέν με κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς πύλης τῶν ἁγίων τῆς ἐξωτέρας τῆς βλεπούσης κατ᾽ ἀνατολάς καὶ αὕτη ἦν κεκλεισμένη

2 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἡ πύλη αὕτη κεκλεισμένη ἔσται οὐκ ἀνοιχθήσεται καὶ οὐδεὶς μὴ διέλθῃ δι᾽ αὐτῆς ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεὸς τοῦ Ισραηλ εἰσελεύσεται δι᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ ἔσται κεκλεισμένη

3 διότι ὁ ἡγούμενος οὗτος καθήσεται ἐν αὐτῇ τοῦ φαγεῖν ἄρτον ἐναντίον κυρίου κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν αιλαμ τῆς πύλης εἰσελεύσεται καὶ κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ ἐξελεύσεται

4 καὶ εἰσήγαγέν με κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς πύλης τῆς πρὸς βορρᾶν κατέναντι τοῦ οἴκου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ πλήρης δόξης ὁ οἶκος κυρίου καὶ πίπτω ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου

5 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου τάξον εἰς τὴν καρδίαν σου καὶ ἰδὲ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ τοῖς ὠσίν σου ἄκουε πάντα ὅσα ἐγὼ λαλῶ μετὰ σοῦ κατὰ πάντα τὰ προστάγματα οἴκου κυρίου καὶ κατὰ πάντα τὰ νόμιμα αὐτοῦ καὶ τάξεις τὴν καρδίαν σου εἰς τὴν εἴσοδον τοῦ οἴκου κατὰ πάσας τὰς ἐξόδους αὐτοῦ ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ἁγίοις

6 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τὸν παραπικραίνοντα πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Ισραηλ τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός ἱκανούσθω ὑμῖν ἀπὸ πασῶν τῶν ἀνομιῶν ὑμῶν οἶκος Ισραηλ

7 τοῦ εἰσαγαγεῖν ὑμᾶς υἱοὺς ἀλλογενεῖς ἀπεριτμήτους καρδίᾳ καὶ ἀπεριτμήτους σαρκὶ τοῦ γίνεσθαι ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις μου καὶ ἐβεβήλουν αὐτὰ ἐν τῷ προσφέρειν ὑμᾶς ἄρτους στέαρ καὶ αἷμα καὶ παρεβαίνετε τὴν διαθήκην μου ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ἀνομίαις ὑμῶν

8 καὶ διετάξατε τοῦ φυλάσσειν φυλακὰς ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις μου

9 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός πᾶς υἱὸς ἀλλογενὴς ἀπερίτμητος καρδίᾳ καὶ ἀπερίτμητος σαρκὶ οὐκ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὰ ἅγιά μου ἐν πᾶσιν υἱοῖς ἀλλογενῶν τῶν ὄντων ἐν μέσῳ οἴκου Ισραηλ

10 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ οἱ Λευῖται οἵτινες ἀφήλαντο ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐν τῷ πλανᾶσθαι τὸν Ισραηλ ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ κατόπισθεν τῶν ἐνθυμημάτων αὐτῶν καὶ λήμψονται ἀδικίαν αὐτῶν

11 καὶ ἔσονται ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις μου λειτουργοῦντες θυρωροὶ ἐπὶ τῶν πυλῶν τοῦ οἴκου καὶ λειτουργοῦντες τῷ οἴκῳ οὗτοι σφάξουσιν τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰς θυσίας τῷ λαῷ καὶ οὗτοι στήσονται ἐναντίον τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ λειτουργεῖν αὐτοῖς

12 ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐλειτούργουν αὐτοῖς πρὸ προσώπου τῶν εἰδώλων αὐτῶν καὶ ἐγένετο τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ εἰς κόλασιν ἀδικίας ἕνεκα τούτου ἦρα τὴν χεῖρά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός

13 καὶ οὐκ ἐγγιοῦσι πρός με τοῦ ἱερατεύειν μοι οὐδὲ τοῦ προσάγειν πρὸς τὰ ἅγια υἱῶν τοῦ Ισραηλ οὐδὲ πρὸς τὰ ἅγια τῶν ἁγίων μου καὶ λήμψονται ἀτιμίαν αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ πλανήσει ᾗ ἐπλανήθησαν

14 καὶ κατατάξουσιν αὐτοὺς φυλάσσειν φυλακὰς τοῦ οἴκου εἰς πάντα τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς πάντα ὅσα ἂν ποιήσωσιν

15 οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ Λευῖται οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ Σαδδουκ οἵτινες ἐφυλάξαντο τὰς φυλακὰς τῶν ἁγίων μου ἐν τῷ πλανᾶσθαι οἶκον Ισραηλ ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ οὗτοι προσάξουσιν πρός με τοῦ λειτουργεῖν μοι καὶ στήσονται πρὸ προσώπου μου τοῦ προσφέρειν μοι θυσίαν στέαρ καὶ αἷμα λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός

16 οὗτοι εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὰ ἅγιά μου καὶ οὗτοι προσελεύσονται πρὸς τὴν τράπεζάν μου τοῦ λειτουργεῖν μοι καὶ φυλάξουσιν τὰς φυλακάς μου

17 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς τὰς πύλας τῆς αὐλῆς τῆς ἐσωτέρας στολὰς λινᾶς ἐνδύσονται καὶ οὐκ ἐνδύσονται ἐρεᾶ ἐν τῷ λειτουργεῖν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τῆς πύλης τῆς ἐσωτέρας αὐλῆς

18 καὶ κιδάρεις λινᾶς ἕξουσιν ἐπὶ ταῖς κεφαλαῖς αὐτῶν καὶ περισκελῆ λινᾶ ἕξουσιν ἐπὶ τὰς ὀσφύας αὐτῶν καὶ οὐ περιζώσονται βίᾳ

19 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἐκπορεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν ἐξωτέραν πρὸς τὸν λαὸν ἐκδύσονται τὰς στολὰς αὐτῶν ἐν αἷς αὐτοὶ λειτουργοῦσιν ἐν αὐταῖς καὶ θήσουσιν αὐτὰς ἐν ταῖς ἐξέδραις τῶν ἁγίων καὶ ἐνδύσονται στολὰς ἑτέρας καὶ οὐ μὴ ἁγιάσωσιν τὸν λαὸν ἐν ταῖς στολαῖς αὐτῶν

20 καὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν οὐ ξυρήσονται καὶ τὰς κόμας αὐτῶν οὐ ψιλώσουσιν καλύπτοντες καλύψουσιν τὰς κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν

21 καὶ οἶνον οὐ μὴ πίωσιν πᾶς ἱερεὺς ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν ἐσωτέραν

22 καὶ χήραν καὶ ἐκβεβλημένην οὐ λήμψονται ἑαυτοῖς εἰς γυναῖκα ἀλλ᾽ ἢ παρθένον ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματος Ισραηλ καὶ χήρα ἐὰν γένηται ἐξ ἱερέως λήμψονται

23 καὶ τὸν λαόν μου διδάξουσιν ἀνὰ μέσον ἁγίου καὶ βεβήλου καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον ἀκαθάρτου καὶ καθαροῦ γνωριοῦσιν αὐτοῖς

24 καὶ ἐπὶ κρίσιν αἵματος οὗτοι ἐπιστήσονται τοῦ διακρίνειν τὰ δικαιώματά μου δικαιώσουσιν καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου κρινοῦσιν καὶ τὰ νόμιμά μου καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ἑορταῖς μου φυλάξονται καὶ τὰ σάββατά μου ἁγιάσουσιν

25 καὶ ἐπὶ ψυχὴν ἀνθρώπου οὐκ εἰσελεύσονται τοῦ μιανθῆναι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐπὶ πατρὶ καὶ ἐπὶ μητρὶ καὶ ἐπὶ υἱῷ καὶ ἐπὶ θυγατρὶ καὶ ἐπὶ ἀδελφῷ καὶ ἐπὶ ἀδελφῇ αὐτοῦ ἣ οὐ γέγονεν ἀνδρί μιανθήσεται

26 καὶ μετὰ τὸ καθαρισθῆναι αὐτὸν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἐξαριθμήσει αὐτῷ

27 καὶ ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ εἰσπορεύωνται εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν ἐσωτέραν τοῦ λειτουργεῖν ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ προσοίσουσιν ἱλασμόν λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός

28 καὶ ἔσται αὐτοῖς εἰς κληρονομίαν ἐγὼ κληρονομία αὐτοῖς καὶ κατάσχεσις αὐτοῖς οὐ δοθήσεται ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ὅτι ἐγὼ κατάσχεσις αὐτῶν

29 καὶ τὰς θυσίας καὶ τὰ ὑπὲρ ἁμαρτίας καὶ τὰ ὑπὲρ ἀγνοίας οὗτοι φάγονται καὶ πᾶν ἀφόρισμα ἐν τῷ Ισραηλ αὐτοῖς ἔσται

30 ἀπαρχαὶ πάντων καὶ τὰ πρωτότοκα πάντων καὶ τὰ ἀφαιρέματα πάντα ἐκ πάντων τῶν ἀπαρχῶν ὑμῶν τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν ἔσται καὶ τὰ πρωτογενήματα ὑμῶν δώσετε τῷ ἱερεῖ τοῦ θεῖναι εὐλογίας ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τοὺς οἴκους ὑμῶν

31 καὶ πᾶν θνησιμαῖον καὶ θηριάλωτον ἐκ τῶν πετεινῶν καὶ ἐκ τῶν κτηνῶν οὐ φάγονται οἱ ἱερεῖς

1 Et convertit me ad viam portæ sanctuarii exterioris, quæ respiciebat ad orientem: et erat clausa.

2 Et dixit Dominus ad me: Porta hæc clausa erit: non aperietur, et vir non transibit per eam, quoniam Dominus Deus Israël ingressus est per eam: eritque clausa

3 principi. Princeps ipse sedebit in ea, ut comedat panem coram Domino: per viam portæ vestibuli ingredietur, et per viam ejus egredietur.

4 Et adduxit me per viam portæ aquilonis in conspectu domus: et vidi, et ecce implevit gloria Domini domum Domini: et cecidi in faciem meam.

5 Et dixit ad me Dominus: Fili hominis, pone cor tuum, et vide oculis tuis, et auribus tuis audi omnia quæ ego loquor ad te de universis cæremoniis domus Domini, et de cunctis legibus ejus: et pones cor tuum in viis templi per omnes exitus sanctuarii.

6 Et dices ad exasperantem me domum Israël: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Sufficiant vobis omnia scelera vestra, domus Israël:

7 eo quod inducitis filios alienos incircumcisos corde, et incircumcisos carne, ut sint in sanctuario meo, et polluant domum meam: et offertis panes meos, adipem et sanguinem, et dissolvitis pactum meum in omnibus sceleribus vestris.

8 Et non servastis præcepta sanctuarii mei, et posuistis custodes observationum mearum in sanctuario meo vobismetipsis.

9 Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Omnis alienigena incircumcisus corde, et incircumcisus carne, non ingredietur sanctuarium meum: omnis filius alienus qui est in medio filiorum Israël.

10 Sed et Levitæ qui longe recesserunt a me in errore filiorum Israël, et erraverunt a me post idola sua, et portaverunt iniquitatem suam,

11 erunt in sanctuario meo æditui, et janitores portarum domus, et ministri domus: ipsi mactabunt holocausta et victimas populi, et ipsi stabunt in conspectu eorum ut ministrent eis.

12 Pro eo quod ministraverunt illis in conspectu idolorum suorum, et facti sunt domui Israël in offendiculum iniquitatis: idcirco levavi manum meam super eos, ait Dominus Deus, et portabunt iniquitatem suam.

13 Et non appropinquabunt ad me ut sacerdotio fungantur mihi, neque accedent ad omne sanctuarium meum juxta Sancta sanctorum: sed portabunt confusionem suam, et scelera sua quæ fecerunt.

14 Et dabo eos janitores domus in omni ministerio ejus, et in universis quæ fient in ea.

15 Sacerdotes autem et Levitæ, filii Sadoc, qui custodierunt cæremonias sanctuarii mei, cum errarent filii Israël a me, ipsi accedent ad me ut ministrent mihi: et stabunt in conspectu meo, ut offerant mihi adipem et sanguinem, ait Dominus Deus.

16 Ipsi ingredientur sanctuarium meum, et ipsi accedent ad mensam meam, ut ministrent mihi, et custodiant cæremonias meas.

17 Cumque ingredientur portas atrii interioris, vestibus lineis induentur: nec ascendet super eos quidquam laneum, quando ministrant in portis atrii interioris et intrinsecus.

18 Vittæ lineæ erunt in capitibus eorum, et feminalia linea erunt in lumbis eorum, et non accingentur in sudore.

19 Cumque egredientur atrium exterius ad populum, exuent se vestimentis suis in quibus ministraverant, et reponent ea in gazophylacio sanctuarii: et vestient se vestimentis aliis, et non sanctificabunt populum in vestibus suis.

20 Caput autem suum non radent, neque comam nutrient: sed tondentes attondent capita sua.

21 Et vinum non bibet omnis sacerdos, quando ingressurus est atrium interius.

22 Et viduam et repudiatam non accipient uxores, sed virgines de semine domus Israël: sed et viduam quæ fuerit vidua a sacerdote, accipient.

23 Et populum meum docebunt quid sit inter sanctum et pollutum, et inter mundum et immundum ostendent eis.

24 Et cum fuerit controversia, stabunt in judiciis meis, et judicabunt: leges meas et præcepta mea in omnibus solemnitatibus meis custodient, et sabbata mea sanctificabunt.

25 Et ad mortuum hominem non ingredientur, ne polluantur, nisi ad patrem et matrem, et filium et filiam, et fratrem, et sororem quæ alterum virum non habuerit: in quibus contaminabuntur.

26 Et postquam fuerit emundatus, septem dies numerabuntur ei.

27 Et in die introitus sui in sanctuarium ad atrium interius, ut ministret mihi in sanctuario, offeret pro peccato suo, ait Dominus Deus.

28 Non erit autem eis hæreditas: ego hæreditas eorum. Et possessionem non dabitis eis in Israël: ego enim possessio eorum.

29 Victimam et pro peccato et pro delicto ipsi comedent, et omne votum in Israël ipsorum erit.

30 Et primitiva omnium primogenitorum, et omnia libamenta ex omnibus quæ offeruntur, sacerdotum erunt: et primitiva ciborum vestrorum dabitis sacerdoti, ut reponat benedictionem domui tuæ.

31 Omne morticinum, et captum a bestia, de avibus et de pecoribus, non comedent sacerdotes.
