46:1 Thus saith the Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
The shaar of the inner court that looketh toward the kadiym (east) shall be shut the six working days; but on the shabbat it shall be opened, and in the day of the rosh chodesh it shall be opened.
46:2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the ulam (porch) of [that] shaar without, and shall stand by the post of the shaar, and the Kohenim shall prepare his Olah and his Shelamim, and he shall shachah (worship) at the threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the shaar shall not be shut until the evening.
46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall shachah (worship) at the petach of this shaar before YHWH (יהוה) in the shabbatot and in the Rosh chodeshim.
46:4 And the Olah that the prince shall offer unto YHWH (יהוה) in the yom shabbat [shall be] six lambs tamim (without blemish), and a ram tamim (without blemish).
46:5 And the minchah [shall be] an ephah for a ram, and the minchah for the lambs as he shall be able to give, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:6 And in the day of the rosh chodesh [it shall be] a young bullock tamim (without blemish), and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be tamim (without blemish).
46:7 And he shall prepare a minchah, an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according as his hand shall attain unto, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:8 And when the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of the ulam (porch) of [that] shaar, and he shall go forth by the way thereof.
46:9 But when the people of the land shall come before YHWH (יהוה) in the solemn moedim, he that entereth in by the way of the tzafon shaar to shachah (worship) shall go out by the way of the Negev (south) gate; and he that entereth by the way of the Negev (south) shaar shall go forth by the way of the tzafon gate: he shall not return by the way of the shaar whereby he came in, but shall go forth over against it.
46:10 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in, shall go in; and when they go forth, shall go forth.
46:11 And in the moedim and in the solemnities the minchah shall be an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, and to the lambs as he is able to give, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary Olah or Shelamim voluntarily unto YHWH (יהוה), [one] shall then open him the shaar that looketh toward the kadiym (east), and he shall prepare his Olah and his Shelamim, as he did on the Yom Shabbat: then he shall go forth; and after his going forth [one] shall shut the shaar.
46:13 Thou shalt daily prepare a Olah unto YHWH (יהוה) [of] a lamb of the first year tamim (without blemish): thou shalt prepare it every morning.
46:14 And thou shalt prepare a minchah for it every morning, the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of an hin of oil, to temper with the fine flour; a minchah continually by a perpetual ordinance unto YHWH (יהוה).
46:15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the minchah, and the oil, every morning [for] a continual Olah.
46:16 Thus saith the Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
If the prince give a gift unto any of his banim, the inheritance thereof shall be his banim'; it [shall be] their possession by inheritance.
46:17 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 banim' for them.
46:18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance by oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; [but] he shall give his banim inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not scattered every man from his possession.
46:19 After he brought me through the entry, which [was] at the side of the shaar, into the kadosh chambers of the Kohenim, which looked toward the tzafon: and, hinnei, there [was] a place on the two sides westward.
46:20 Then said he unto me, This [is] the place where the Kohenim shall boil the asham and the chattat, where they shall bake the minchah; that they bear [them] not out into the outer court, to sanctify the people.
46:21 Then he brought me forth into the outer court, and caused me to pass by the four corners of the court; and, hinnei, in every corner of the court [there was] a court.
46:22 In the four corners of the court [there were] courts joined of forty [cubits] long and thirty broad: these four corners [were] of one measure.
46:23 And [there was] a row [of building] round about in them, round about them four, and [it was] made with boiling places under the rows round about.
46:24 Then said he unto me, These [are] the places of them that boil, where the ministers of the bayit shall boil the sacrifice of the people.
