The Bible Online: Book 26 Ezekiel: 26:030:001 - 26:048:035

 

26:030:001 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

26:030:002 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl
ye, Woe worth the day!

26:030:003 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a
cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.

26:030:004 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be
in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they
shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be
broken down.

26:030:005 Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people,
and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall
fall with them by the sword.

26:030:006 Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall;
and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of
Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.

26:030:007 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that
are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the
cities that are wasted.

26:030:008 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a fire
in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.

26:030:009 In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to make
the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come upon
them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.

26:030:010 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also make the multitude of
Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.

26:030:011 He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall
be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their
swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain.

26:030:012 And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the
hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all
that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I the LORD have
spoken it.

26:030:013 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also destroy the idols, and I
will cause their images to cease out of Noph; and there shall
be no more a prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a
fear in the land of Egypt.

26:030:014 And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan,
and will execute judgments in No.

26:030:015 And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I
will cut off the multitude of No.

26:030:016 And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and
No shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses
daily.

26:030:017 The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword:
and these cities shall go into captivity.

26:030:018 At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall
break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength
shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and
her daughters shall go into captivity.

26:030:019 Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know
that I am the LORD.

26:030:020 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month,
in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD
came unto me, saying,

26:030:021 Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt;
and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a
roller to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.

26:030:022 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against
Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong,
and that which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall
out of his hand.

26:030:023 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will
disperse them through the countries.

26:030:024 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put
my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he
shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded
man.

26:030:025 But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the
arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am
the LORD, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the king
of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of
Egypt.

26:030:026 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and
disperse them among the countries; and they shall know that I
am the LORD.

26:031:001 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month,
in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came
unto me, saying,

26:031:002 Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his
multitude; Whom art thou like in thy greatness?

26:031:003 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair
branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature;
and his top was among the thick boughs.

26:031:004 The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with
her rivers running round about his plants, and sent her little
rivers unto all the trees of the field.

26:031:005 Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the
field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became
long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.

26:031:006 All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and
under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth
their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.

26:031:007 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his
branches: for his root was by great waters.

26:031:008 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir
trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were
not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was
like unto him in his beauty.

26:031:009 I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that
all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied
him.

26:031:010 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast lifted up
thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick
boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height;

26:031:011 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one
of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven
him out for his wickedness.

26:031:012 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off,
and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys
his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the
rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone
down from his shadow, and have left him.

26:031:013 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and
all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:

26:031:014 To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt
themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among
the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their
height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto
death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the
children of men, with them that go down to the pit.

26:031:015 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the
grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I
restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were
stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the
trees of the field fainted for him.

26:031:016 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I
cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and
all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all
that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of
the earth.

26:031:017 They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain
with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under
his shadow in the midst of the heathen.

26:031:018 To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the
trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees
of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in
the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the
sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord
GOD.

26:032:001 And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month,
in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came
unto me, saying,

26:032:002 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt,
and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations,
and thou art as a whale in the seas: and thou camest forth
with thy rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and
fouledst their rivers.

26:032:003 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will therefore spread out my net
over thee with a company of many people; and they shall bring
thee up in my net.

26:032:004 Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth
upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the
heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the
whole earth with thee.

26:032:005 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the
valleys with thy height.

26:032:006 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou
swimmest, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full
of thee.

26:032:007 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and
make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a
cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.

26:032:008 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee,
and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.

26:032:009 I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring
thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which
thou hast not known.

26:032:010 Yea, I will make many people amazed at thee, and their kings
shall be horribly afraid for thee, when I shall brandish my
sword before them; and they shall tremble at every moment,
every man for his own life, in the day of thy fall.

26:032:011 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The sword of the king of Babylon
shall come upon thee.

26:032:012 By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to
fall, the terrible of the nations, all of them: and they shall
spoil the pomp of Egypt, and all the multitude thereof shall
be destroyed.

26:032:013 I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the
great waters; neither shall the foot of man trouble them any
more, nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them.

26:032:014 Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to
run like oil, saith the Lord GOD.

26:032:015 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country
shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall
smite all them that dwell therein, then shall they know that I
am the LORD.

26:032:016 This is the lamentation wherewith they shall lament her: the
daughters of the nations shall lament her: they shall lament
for her, even for Egypt, and for all her multitude, saith the
Lord GOD.

26:032:017 It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day
of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

26:032:018 Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them
down, even her, and the daughters of the famous nations, unto
the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down into the
pit.

26:032:019 Whom dost thou pass in beauty? go down, and be thou laid with
the uncircumcised.

26:032:020 They shall fall in the midst of them that are slain by the
sword: she is delivered to the sword: draw her and all her
multitudes.

26:032:021 The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the
midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down,
they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.

26:032:022 Asshur is there and all her company: his graves are about him:
all of them slain, fallen by the sword:

26:032:023 Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her company
is round about her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the
sword, which caused terror in the land of the living.

26:032:024 There is Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all
of them slain, fallen by the sword, which are gone down
uncircumcised into the nether parts of the earth, which caused
their terror in the land of the living; yet have they borne
their shame with them that go down to the pit.

26:032:025 They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain with all her
multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them
uncircumcised, slain by the sword: though their terror was
caused in the land of the living, yet have they borne their
shame with them that go down to the pit: he is put in the
midst of them that be slain.

26:032:026 There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are
round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the
sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the
living.

26:032:027 And they shall not lie with the mighty that are fallen of the
uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons
of war: and they have laid their swords under their heads, but
their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were
the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.

26:032:028 Yea, thou shalt be broken in the midst of the uncircumcised,
and shalt lie with them that are slain with the sword.

26:032:029 There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes, which with
their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword:
they shall lie with the uncircumcised, and with them that go
down to the pit.

26:032:030 There be the princes of the north, all of them, and all the
Zidonians, which are gone down with the slain; with their
terror they are ashamed of their might; and they lie
uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword, and bear
their shame with them that go down to the pit.

26:032:031 Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be comforted over all his
multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army slain by the sword,
saith the Lord GOD.

26:032:032 For I have caused my terror in the land of the living: and he
shall be laid in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that
are slain with the sword, even Pharaoh and all his multitude,
saith the Lord GOD.

26:033:001 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

26:033:002 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto
them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the
land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their
watchman:

26:033:003 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the
trumpet, and warn the people;

26:033:004 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh
not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood
shall be upon his own head.

26:033:005 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his
blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall
deliver his soul.

26:033:006 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the
trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and
take any person from among them, he is taken away in his
iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.

26:033:007 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the
house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my
mouth, and warn them from me.

26:033:008 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely
die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way,
that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will
I require at thine hand.

26:033:009 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from
it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his
iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

26:033:010 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel;
Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be
upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?

26:033:011 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no
pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn
from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways;
for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

26:033:012 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy
people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver
him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of
the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he
turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be
able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

26:033:013 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live;
if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all
his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his
iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.

26:033:014 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if
he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;

26:033:015 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had
robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing
iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.

26:033:016 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned
unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he
shall surely live.

26:033:017 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not
equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.

26:033:018 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and
committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

26:033:019 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which
is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

26:033:020 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of
Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.

26:033:021 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in
the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that
had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is
smitten.

26:033:022 Now the hand of the LORD was upon me in the evening, afore he
that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came
to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no
more dumb.

26:033:023 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

26:033:024 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of
Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the
land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance.

26:033:025 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Ye eat with
the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed
blood: and shall ye possess the land?

26:033:026 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile
every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land?

26:033:027 Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live,
surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword,
and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to
be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves
shall die of the pestilence.

26:033:028 For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her
strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be
desolate, that none shall pass through.

26:033:029 Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the
land most desolate because of all their abominations which
they have committed.

26:033:030 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are
talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the
houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother,
saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that
cometh forth from the LORD.

26:033:031 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit
before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they
will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love,
but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

26:033:032 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that
hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for
they hear thy words, but they do them not.

26:033:033 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall
they know that a prophet hath been among them.

26:034:001 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

26:034:002 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel,
prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the
shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed
themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

26:034:003 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them
that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.

26:034:004 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed
that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was
broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven
away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with
force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

26:034:005 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and
they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they
were scattered.

26:034:006 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every
high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of
the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

26:034:007 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

26:034:008 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became
a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field,
because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search
for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my
flock;

26:034:009 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

26:034:010 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds;
and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to
cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed
themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their
mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

26:034:011 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both
search my sheep, and seek them out.

26:034:012 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is
among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my
sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have
been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

26:034:013 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them
from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and
feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in
all the inhabited places of the country.

26:034:014 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high
mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie
in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the
mountains of Israel.

26:034:015 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith
the Lord GOD.

26:034:016 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which
was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and
will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the
fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.

26:034:017 And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I
judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he
goats.

26:034:018 Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good
pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of
your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye
must foul the residue with your feet?

26:034:019 And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with
your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your
feet.

26:034:020 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even
I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean
cattle.

26:034:021 Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed
all the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them
abroad;

26:034:022 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a
prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.

26:034:023 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed
them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall
be their shepherd.

26:034:024 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a
prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.

26:034:025 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause
the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell
safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

26:034:026 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a
blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his
season; there shall be showers of blessing.

26:034:027 And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth
shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their
land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken
the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of
those that served themselves of them.

26:034:028 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall
the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell
safely, and none shall make them afraid.

26:034:029 And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall
be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the
shame of the heathen any more.

26:034:030 Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them,
and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith
the Lord GOD.

26:034:031 And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am
your God, saith the Lord GOD.

26:035:001 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

26:035:002 Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy
against it,

26:035:003 And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O mount
Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand
against thee, and I will make thee most desolate.

26:035:004 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and
thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

26:035:005 Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the
blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in
the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity
had an end:

26:035:006 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee
unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not
hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.

26:035:007 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it
him that passeth out and him that returneth.

26:035:008 And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in thy
hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they
fall that are slain with the sword.

26:035:009 I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall
not return: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

26:035:010 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two
countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the
LORD was there:

26:035:011 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will even do
according to thine anger, and according to thine envy which
thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I will make
myself known among them, when I have judged thee.

26:035:012 And thou shalt know that I am the LORD, and that I have heard
all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the
mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are
given us to consume.

26:035:013 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and have
multiplied your words against me: I have heard them.

26:035:014 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I
will make thee desolate.

26:035:015 As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of
Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee: thou
shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even all of
it: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

26:036:001 Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel,
and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:

26:036:002 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against
you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:

26:036:003 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because
they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every
side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the
heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are
an infamy of the people:

26:036:004 Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord
GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the
hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate
wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a
prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round
about;

26:036:005 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my
jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and
against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their
possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful
minds, to cast it out for a prey.

26:036:006 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto
the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the
valleys, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my
jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of
the heathen:

26:036:007 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand,
Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their
shame.

26:036:008 But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your
branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for
they are at hand to come.

26:036:009 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye
shall be tilled and sown:

26:036:010 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel,
even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the
wastes shall be builded:

26:036:011 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall
increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old
estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings:
and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

26:036:012 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel;
and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their
inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of
men.

26:036:013 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they say unto you, Thou land
devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations:

26:036:014 Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy
nations any more, saith the Lord GOD.

26:036:015 Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the
heathen any more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the
people any more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall
any more, saith the Lord GOD.

26:036:016 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

26:036:017 Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land,
they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their
way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.

26:036:018 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they
had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had
polluted it:

26:036:019 And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were
dispersed through the countries: according to their way and
according to their doings I judged them.

26:036:020 And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went,
they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are
the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land.

26:036:021 But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel
had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.

26:036:022 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord
GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for
mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the
heathen, whither ye went.

26:036:023 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among
the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and
the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD,
when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

26:036:024 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out
of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

26:036:025 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be
clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will
I cleanse you.

26:036:026 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put
within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your
flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

26:036:027 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in
my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

26:036:028 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers;
and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

26:036:029 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will
call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine
upon you.

26:036:030 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of
the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine
among the heathen.

26:036:031 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings
that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own
sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

26:036:032 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known
unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house
of Israel.

26:036:033 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed
you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in
the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.

26:036:034 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate
in the sight of all that passed by.

26:036:035 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like
the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined
cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.

26:036:036 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that
I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was
desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.

26:036:037 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by
the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them
with men like a flock.

26:036:038 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn
feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of
men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

26:037:001 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the
spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley
which was full of bones,

26:037:002 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there
were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very
dry.

26:037:003 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I
answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

26:037:004 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto
them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

26:037:005 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause
breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

26:037:006 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon
you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye
shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

26:037:007 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there
was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came
together, bone to his bone.

26:037:008 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon
them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath
in them.

26:037:009 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of
man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from
the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that
they may live.

26:037:010 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into
them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an
exceeding great army.

26:037:011 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole
house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and
our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

26:037:012 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to
come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of
Israel.

26:037:013 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your
graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

26:037:014 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall
place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD
have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

26:037:015 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

26:037:016 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon
it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions:
then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the
stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his
companions:

26:037:017 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall
become one in thine hand.

26:037:018 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee,
saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?

26:037:019 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take
the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the
tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even
with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they
shall be one in mine hand.

26:037:020 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand
before their eyes.

26:037:021 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither
they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring
them into their own land:

26:037:022 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains
of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they
shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided
into two kingdoms any more at all.

26:037:023 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their
idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their
transgressions: but I will save them out of all their
dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse
them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.

26:037:024 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all
shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments,
and observe my statutes, and do them.

26:037:025 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob
my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall
dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their
children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be
their prince for ever.

26:037:026 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall
be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them,
and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of
them for evermore.

26:037:027 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their
God, and they shall be my people.

26:037:028 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel,
when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

26:038:001 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

26:038:002 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the
chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

26:038:003 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

26:038:004 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I
will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and
horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a
great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling
swords:

26:038:005 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield
and helmet:

26:038:006 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north
quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

26:038:007 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy
company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto
them.

26:038:008 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years
thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the
sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the
mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is
brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely
all of them.

26:038:009 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a
cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many
people with thee.

26:038:010 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at
the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt
think an evil thought:

26:038:011 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled
villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell
safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither
bars nor gates,

26:038:012 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon
the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the
people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten
cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

26:038:013 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the
young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to
take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey?
to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods,
to take a great spoil?

26:038:014 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith
the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth
safely, shalt thou not know it?

26:038:015 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts,
thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon
horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

26:038:016 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud
to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will
bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when
I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

26:038:017 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in
old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which
prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee
against them?

26:038:018 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come
against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury
shall come up in my face.

26:038:019 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken,
Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land
of Israel;

26:038:020 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven,
and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that
creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face
of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains
shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and
every wall shall fall to the ground.

26:038:021 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my
mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be
against his brother.

26:038:022 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood;
and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the
many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great
hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

26:038:023 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be
known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I
am the LORD.

26:039:001 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the
chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

26:039:002 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of
thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and
will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

26:039:003 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause
thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

26:039:004 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all
thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee
unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of
the field to be devoured.

26:039:005 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it,
saith the Lord GOD.

26:039:006 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell
carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the
LORD.

26:039:007 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people
Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more:
and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in
Israel.

26:039:008 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this
is the day whereof I have spoken.

26:039:009 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth,
and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields
and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves,
and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven
years:

26:039:010 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut
down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons
with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and
rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

26:039:011 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto
Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the
passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses
of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his
multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.

26:039:012 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them,
that they may cleanse the land.

26:039:013 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall
be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith
the Lord GOD.

26:039:014 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing
through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain
upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of
seven months shall they search.

26:039:015 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth
a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the
buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.

26:039:016 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall
they cleanse the land.

26:039:017 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto
every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field,
Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side
to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great
sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh,
and drink blood.

26:039:018 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of
the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of
bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.

26:039:019 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye
be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

26:039:020 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots,
with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

26:039:021 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen
shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I
have laid upon them.

26:039:022 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God
from that day and forward.

26:039:023 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into
captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against
me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the
hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.

26:039:024 According to their uncleanness and according to their
transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from
them.

26:039:025 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the
captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of
Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26:039:026 After that they have borne their shame, and all their
trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they
dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

26:039:027 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered
them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in
the sight of many nations;

26:039:028 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which
caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I
have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of
them any more there.

26:039:029 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have
poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord
GOD.

26:040:001 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the
beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the
fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the
selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me
thither.

26:040:002 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel,
and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the
frame of a city on the south.

26:040:003 And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose
appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of
flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the
gate.

26:040:004 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes,
and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I
shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto
thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to
the house of Israel.

26:040:005 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and
in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the
cubit and an hand breadth: so he measured the breadth of the
building, one reed; and the height, one reed.

26:040:006 Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and
went up the stairs thereof, and measured the threshold of the
gate, which was one reed broad; and the other threshold of the
gate, which was one reed broad.

26:040:007 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed
broad; and between the little chambers were five cubits; and
the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within was
one reed.

26:040:008 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.

26:040:009 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the
posts thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was
inward.

26:040:010 And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on
this side, and three on that side; they three were of one
measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on
that side.

26:040:011 And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten
cubits; and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.

26:040:012 The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on
this side, and the space was one cubit on that side: and the
little chambers were six cubits on this side, and six cubits
on that side.

26:040:013 He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber
to the roof of another: the breadth was five and twenty
cubits, door against door.

26:040:014 He made also posts of threescore cubits, even unto the post of
the court round about the gate.

26:040:015 And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of
the porch of the inner gate were fifty cubits.

26:040:016 And there were narrow windows to the little chambers, and to
their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the
arches: and windows were round about inward: and upon each
post were palm trees.

26:040:017 Then brought he me into the outward court, and, lo, there were
chambers, and a pavement made for the court round about:
thirty chambers were upon the pavement.

26:040:018 And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the
length of the gates was the lower pavement.

26:040:019 Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower
gate unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred
cubits eastward and northward.

26:040:020 And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the
north, he measured the length thereof, and the breadth
thereof.

26:040:021 And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and
three on that side; and the posts thereof and the arches
thereof were after the measure of the first gate: the length
thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty
cubits.

26:040:022 And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees,
were after the measure of the gate that looketh toward the
east; and they went up unto it by seven steps; and the arches
thereof were before them.

26:040:023 And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate
toward the north, and toward the east; and he measured from
gate to gate an hundred cubits.

26:040:024 After that he brought me toward the south, and behold a gate
toward the south: and he measured the posts thereof and the
arches thereof according to these measures.

26:040:025 And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round
about, like those windows: the length was fifty cubits, and
the breadth five and twenty cubits.

26:040:026 And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches
thereof were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this
side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof.

26:040:027 And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south: and
he measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred
cubits.

26:040:028 And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate: and he
measured the south gate according to these measures;

26:040:029 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and
the arches thereof, according to these measures: and there
were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about: it
was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad.

26:040:030 And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long,
and five cubits broad.

26:040:031 And the arches thereof were toward the utter court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had
eight steps.

26:040:032 And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he
measured the gate according to these measures.

26:040:033 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and
the arches thereof, were according to these measures: and
there were windows therein and in the arches thereof round
about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits
broad.

26:040:034 And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that
side: and the going up to it had eight steps.

26:040:035 And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according
to these measures;

26:040:036 The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches
thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was
fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits.

26:040:037 And the posts thereof were toward the utter court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that
side: and the going up to it had eight steps.

26:040:038 And the chambers and the entries thereof were by the posts of
the gates, where they washed the burnt offering.

26:040:039 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and
two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering
and the sin offering and the trespass offering.

26:040:040 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the
north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was
at the porch of the gate, were two tables.

26:040:041 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side,
by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew
their sacrifices.

26:040:042 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt offering,
of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad,
and one cubit high: whereupon also they laid the instruments
wherewith they slew the burnt offering and the sacrifice.

26:040:043 And within were hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about:
and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.

26:040:044 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers in
the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate; and
their prospect was toward the south: one at the side of the
east gate having the prospect toward the north.

26:040:045 And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward
the south, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of
the house.

26:040:046 And the chamber whose prospect is toward the north is for the
priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the
sons of Zadok among the sons of Levi, which come near to the
LORD to minister unto him.

26:040:047 So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an
hundred cubits broad, foursquare; and the altar that was
before the house.

26:040:048 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each
post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits
on that side: and the breadth of the gate was three cubits on
this side, and three cubits on that side.

26:040:049 The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth
eleven cubits, and he brought me by the steps whereby they
went up to it: and there were pillars by the posts, one on
this side, and another on that side.

26:041:001 Afterward he brought me to the temple, and measured the posts,
six cubits broad on the one side, and six cubits broad on the
other side, which was the breadth of the tabernacle.

26:041:002 And the breadth of the door was ten cubits; and the sides of
the door were five cubits on the one side, and five cubits on
the other side: and he measured the length thereof, forty
cubits: and the breadth, twenty cubits.

26:041:003 Then went he inward, and measured the post of the door, two
cubits; and the door, six cubits; and the breadth of the door,
seven cubits.

26:041:004 So he measured the length thereof, twenty cubits; and the
breadth, twenty cubits, before the temple: and he said unto
me, This is the most holy place.

26:041:005 After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the
breadth of every side chamber, four cubits, round about the
house on every side.

26:041:006 And the side chambers were three, one over another, and thirty
in order; and they entered into the wall which was of the
house for the side chambers round about, that they might have
hold, but they had not hold in the wall of the house.

26:041:007 And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward
to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went
still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of
the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest
chamber to the highest by the midst.

26:041:008 I saw also the height of the house round about: the
foundations of the side chambers were a full reed of six great
cubits.

26:041:009 The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber
without, was five cubits: and that which was left was the
place of the side chambers that were within.

26:041:010 And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits
round about the house on every side.

26:041:011 And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that
was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward
the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five
cubits round about.

26:041:012 Now the building that was before the separate place at the end
toward the west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the
building was five cubits thick round about, and the length
thereof ninety cubits.

26:041:013 So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long; and the
separate place, and the building, with the walls thereof, an
hundred cubits long;

26:041:014 Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate
place toward the east, an hundred cubits.

26:041:015 And he measured the length of the building over against the
separate place which was behind it, and the galleries thereof
on the one side and on the other side, an hundred cubits, with
the inner temple, and the porches of the court;

26:041:016 The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries
round about on their three stories, over against the door,
cieled with wood round about, and from the ground up to the
windows, and the windows were covered;

26:041:017 To that above the door, even unto the inner house, and
without, and by all the wall round about within and without,
by measure.

26:041:018 And it was made with cherubims and palm trees, so that a palm
tree was between a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had
two faces;

26:041:019 So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one
side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the
other side: it was made through all the house round about.

26:041:020 From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palm
trees made, and on the wall of the temple.

26:041:021 The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the
sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the
other.

26:041:022 The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length
thereof two cubits; and the corners thereof, and the length
thereof, and the walls thereof, were of wood: and he said unto
me, This is the table that is before the LORD.

26:041:023 And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.

26:041:024 And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves; two
leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the other door.

26:041:025 And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple,
cherubims and palm trees, like as were made upon the walls;
and there were thick planks upon the face of the porch
without.

26:041:026 And there were narrow windows and palm trees on the one side
and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the
side chambers of the house, and thick planks.

26:042:001 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, the way toward
the north: and he brought me into the chamber that was over
against the separate place, and which was before the building
toward the north.

26:042:002 Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and
the breadth was fifty cubits.

26:042:003 Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court,
and over against the pavement which was for the utter court,
was gallery against gallery in three stories.

26:042:004 And before the chambers was a walk to ten cubits breadth
inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north.

26:042:005 Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were
higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of
the building.

26:042:006 For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the
pillars of the courts: therefore the building was straitened
more than the lowest and the middlemost from the ground.

26:042:007 And the wall that was without over against the chambers,
toward the utter court on the forepart of the chambers, the
length thereof was fifty cubits.

26:042:008 For the length of the chambers that were in the utter court
was fifty cubits: and, lo, before the temple were an hundred
cubits.

26:042:009 And from under these chambers was the entry on the east side,
as one goeth into them from the utter court.

26:042:010 The chambers were in the thickness of the wall of the court
toward the east, over against the separate place, and over
against the building.

26:042:011 And the way before them was like the appearance of the
chambers which were toward the north, as long as they, and as
broad as they: and all their goings out were both according to
their fashions, and according to their doors.

26:042:012 And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward
the south was a door in the head of the way, even the way
directly before the wall toward the east, as one entereth into
them.

26:042:013 Then said he unto me, The north chambers and the south
chambers, which are before the separate place, they be holy
chambers, where the priests that approach unto the LORD shall
eat the most holy things: there shall they lay the most holy
things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the
trespass offering; for the place is holy.

26:042:014 When the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of
the holy place into the utter court, but there they shall lay
their garments wherein they minister; for they are holy; and
shall put on other garments, and shall approach to those
things which are for the people.

26:042:015 Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he
brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the
east, and measured it round about.

26:042:016 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five
hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.

26:042:017 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the
measuring reed round about.

26:042:018 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the
measuring reed.

26:042:019 He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred
reeds with the measuring reed.

26:042:020 He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about,
five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a
separation between the sanctuary and the profane place.

26:043:001 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that
looketh toward the east:

26:043:002 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way
of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters:
and the earth shined with his glory.

26:043:003 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I
saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to
destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I
saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.

26:043:004 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of
the gate whose prospect is toward the east.

26:043:005 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court;
and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.

26:043:006 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man
stood by me.

26:043:007 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and
the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the
midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name,
shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor
their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their
kings in their high places.

26:043:008 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and
their post by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they
have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they
have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger.

26:043:009 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of
their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of
them for ever.

26:043:010 Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that
they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure
the pattern.

26:043:011 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them
the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings
out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms
thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms
thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their
sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the
ordinances thereof, and do them.

26:043:012 This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the
whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold,
this is the law of the house.

26:043:013 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The
cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be
a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by
the edge thereof round about shall be a span: and this shall
be the higher place of the altar.

26:043:014 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle
shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the
lesser settle even to the greater settle shall be four cubits,
and the breadth one cubit.

26:043:015 So the altar shall be four cubits; and from the altar and
upward shall be four horns.

26:043:016 And the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad,
square in the four squares thereof.

26:043:017 And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen
broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it
shall be half a cubit; and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit
about; and his stairs shall look toward the east.

26:043:018 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD;
These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they
shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to
sprinkle blood thereon.

26:043:019 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the
seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me,
saith the Lord GOD, a young bullock for a sin offering.

26:043:020 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.

26:043:021 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he
shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the
sanctuary.

26:043:022 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.

26:043:023 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.

26:043:024 And thou shalt offer them before the LORD, and the priests
shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a
burnt offering unto the LORD.

26:043:025 Seven days shalt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin
offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram
out of the flock, without blemish.

26:043:026 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they
shall consecrate themselves.

26:043:027 And when these days are expired, it shall be, that upon the
eighth day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt
offerings upon the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will
accept you, saith the Lord GOD.

26:044:001 Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward
sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.

26:044:002 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall
not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the
LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it
shall be shut.

26:044:003 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat
bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch
of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.

26:044:004 Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house:
and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the
house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face.

26:044:005 And the LORD said unto me, Son of man, mark well, and behold
with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto
thee concerning all the ordinances of the house of the LORD,
and all the laws thereof; and mark well the entering in of the
house, with every going forth of the sanctuary.

26:044:006 And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of
Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O ye house of Israel, let it
suffice you of all your abominations,

26:044:007 In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers,
uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in
my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my
bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant
because of all your abominations.

26:044:008 And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but ye
have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.

26:044:009 Thus saith the Lord GOD; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart,
nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of
any stranger that is among the children of Israel.

26:044:010 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.

26:044:011 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, and they shall stand before them to minister unto
them.

26:044:012 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and
caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore
have I lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD,
and they shall bear their iniquity.

26:044:013 And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a
priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in
the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame, and
their abominations which they have committed.

26:044:014 But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for
all the service thereof, and for all that shall be done
therein.

26:044:015 But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the
charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray
from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and
they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the
blood, saith the Lord GOD:

26:044:016 They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near
to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my
charge.

26:044:017 And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the
gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen
garments; and no wool shall come upon them, whiles they
minister in the gates of the inner court, and within.

26:044:018 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have
linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird
themselves with any thing that causeth sweat.

26:044:019 And when they go forth into the utter court, even into the
utter court to the people, they shall put off their garments
wherein they ministered, and lay them in the holy chambers,
and they shall put on other garments; and they shall not
sanctify the people with their garments.

26:044:020 Neither shall they shave their heads, nor suffer their locks
to grow long; they shall only poll their heads.

26:044:021 Neither shall any priest drink wine, when they enter into the
inner court.

26:044:022 Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that
is put away: but they shall take maidens of the seed of the
house of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before.

26:044:023 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy
and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and
the clean.

26:044:024 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they
shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep
my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall
hallow my sabbaths.

26:044:025 And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves:
but for father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter,
for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may
defile themselves.

26:044:026 And after he is cleansed, they shall reckon unto him seven
days.

26:044:027 And in the day that he goeth into the sanctuary, unto the
inner court, to minister in the sanctuary, he shall offer his
sin offering, saith the Lord GOD.

26:044:028 And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their
inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I
am their possession.

26:044:029 They shall eat the meat offering, and the sin offering, and
the trespass offering: and every dedicated thing in Israel
shall be theirs.

26:044:030 And the first of all the firstfruits of all things, and every
oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the
priest's: ye shall also give unto the priest the first of your
dough, that he may cause the blessing to rest in thine house.

26:044:031 The priests shall not eat of any thing that is dead of itself,
or torn, whether it be fowl or beast.

26:045:001 Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for
inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy
portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five
and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten
thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round
about.

26:045:002 Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in
length, with five hundred in breadth, square round about; and
fifty cubits round about for the suburbs thereof.

26:045:003 And of this measure shalt thou measure the length of five and
twenty thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand: and in it
shall be the sanctuary and the most holy place.

26:045:004 The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the
ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister
unto the LORD: and it shall be a place for their houses, and
an holy place for the sanctuary.

26:045:005 And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten
thousand of breadth shall also the Levites, the ministers of
the house, have for themselves, for a possession for twenty
chambers.

26:045:006 And ye shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand
broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the
oblation of the holy portion: it shall be for the whole house
of Israel.

26:045:007 And a portion shall be for the prince on the one side and on
the other side of the oblation of the holy portion, and of the
possession of the city, before the oblation of the holy
portion, and before the possession of the city, from the west
side westward, and from the east side eastward: and the length
shall be over against one of the portions, from the west
border unto the east border.

26:045:008 In the land shall be his possession in Israel: and my princes
shall no more oppress my people; and the rest of the land
shall they give to the house of Israel according to their
tribes.

26:045:009 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Let it suffice you, O princes of
Israel: remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and
justice, take away your exactions from my people, saith the
Lord GOD.

26:045:010 Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just
bath.

26:045:011 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath
may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the
tenth part of an homer: the measure thereof shall be after the
homer.

26:045:012 And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five
and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.

26:045:013 This is the oblation that ye shall offer; the sixth part of an
ephah of an homer of wheat, and ye shall give the sixth part
of an ephah of an homer of barley:

26:045:014 Concerning the ordinance of oil, the bath of oil, ye shall
offer the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, which is an
homer of ten baths; for ten baths are an homer:

26:045:015 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the
fat pastures of Israel; for a meat offering, and for a burnt
offering, and for peace offerings, to make reconciliation for
them, saith the Lord GOD.

26:045:016 All the people of the land shall give this oblation for the
prince in Israel.

26:045:017 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and
meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the
new moons, and in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the
house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the
meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace
offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.

26:045:018 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the first month, in the first day
of the month, thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish,
and cleanse the sanctuary:

26:045:019 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering,
and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four
corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the
gate of the inner court.

26:045:020 And so thou shalt do the seventh day of the month for every
one that erreth, and for him that is simple: so shall ye
reconcile the house.

26:045:021 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye
shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened
bread shall be eaten.

26:045:022 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for
all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.

26:045:023 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering
to the LORD, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish
daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin
offering.

26:045:024 And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a
bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an
ephah.

26:045:025 In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall
he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to
the sin offering, according to the burnt offering, and
according to the meat offering, and according to the oil.

26:046:001 Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that
looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days;
but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the
new moon it shall be opened.

26:046:002 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that
gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the
priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace
offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate:
then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until
the evening.

26:046:003 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.

26:046:004 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer unto the
LORD in the sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish,
and a ram without blemish.

26:046:005 And the meat offering shall be an ephah for a ram, and the
meat offering for the lambs as he shall be able to give, and
an hin of oil to an ephah.

26:046:006 And in the day of the new moon it shall be a young bullock
without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be
without blemish.

26:046:007 And he shall prepare a meat offering, 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.

26:046:008 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.

26:046:009 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.

26:046:010 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in, shall go
in; and when they go forth, shall go forth.

26:046:011 And in the feasts and in the solemnities the meat offering
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.

26:046:012 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt offering
or peace offerings voluntarily unto the LORD, one shall then
open him the gate that looketh toward the east, and he shall
prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, as he did
on the sabbath day: then he shall go forth; and after his
going forth one shall shut the gate.

26:046:013 Thou shalt daily prepare a burnt offering unto the LORD of a
lamb of the first year without blemish: thou shalt prepare it
every morning.

26:046:014 And thou shalt prepare a meat offering 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 meat offering
continually by a perpetual ordinance unto the LORD.

26:046:015 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat offering, and
the oil, every morning for a continual burnt offering.

26:046:016 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
be their possession by inheritance.

26:046:017 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.

26:046:018 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 sons inheritance out of his own possession:
that my people be not scattered every man from his possession.

26:046:019 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.

26:046:020 Then said he unto me, This is the place where the priests
shall boil the trespass offering and the sin offering, where
they shall bake the meat offering; that they bear them not out
into the utter court, to sanctify the people.

26:046:021 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, and caused me
to pass by the four corners of the court; and, behold, in
every corner of the court there was a court.

26:046:022 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.

26:046:023 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.

26:046:024 Then said he unto me, These are the places of them that boil,
where the ministers of the house shall boil the sacrifice of
the people.

26:047:001 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and,
behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the
house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward
the east, and the waters came down from under from the right
side of the house, at the south side of the altar.

26:047:002 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and
led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way
that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on
the right side.

26:047:003 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth
eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me
through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.

26:047:004 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the
waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a
thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the
loins.

26:047:005 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I
could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim
in, a river that could not be passed over.

26:047:006 And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he
brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.

26:047:007 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were
very many trees on the one side and on the other.

26:047:008 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east
country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea:
which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be
healed.

26:047:009 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which
moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and
there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these
waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every
thing shall live whither the river cometh.

26:047:010 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon
it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to
spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their
kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.

26:047:011 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not
be healed; they shall be given to salt.

26:047:012 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on
that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not
fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall
bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their
waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof
shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

26:047:013 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye
shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of
Israel: Joseph shall have two portions.

26:047:014 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning
the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers:
and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.

26:047:015 And this shall be the border of the land toward the north
side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go to
Zedad;

26:047:016 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of
Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, which is by
the coast of Hauran.

26:047:017 And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of
Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath.
And this is the north side.

26:047:018 And the east side ye shall measure from Hauran, and from
Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel by
Jordan, from the border unto the east sea. And this is the
east side.

26:047:019 And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of
strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the
south side southward.

26:047:020 The west side also shall be the great sea from the border,
till a man come over against Hamath. This is the west side.

26:047:021 So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes
of Israel.

26:047:022 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for
an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn
among you, which shall beget children among you: and they
shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of
Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes
of Israel.

26:047:023 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger
sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the
Lord GOD.

26:048:001 Now these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to
the coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath,
Hazarenan, the border of Damascus northward, to the coast of
Hamath; for these are his sides east and west; a portion for
Dan.

26:048:002 And by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west
side, a portion for Asher.

26:048:003 And by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the
west side, a portion for Naphtali.

26:048:004 And by the border of Naphtali, from the east side unto the
west side, a portion for Manasseh.

26:048:005 And by the border of Manasseh, from the east side unto the
west side, a portion for Ephraim.

26:048:006 And by the border of Ephraim, from the east side even unto the
west side, a portion for Reuben.

26:048:007 And by the border of Reuben, from the east side unto the west
side, a portion for Judah.

26:048:008 And by the border of Judah, from the east side unto the west
side, shall be the offering which ye shall offer of five and
twenty thousand reeds in breadth, and in length as one of the
other parts, from the east side unto the west side: and the
sanctuary shall be in the midst of it.

26:048:009 The oblation that ye shall offer unto the LORD shall be of
five and twenty thousand in length, and of ten thousand in
breadth.

26:048:010 And for them, even for the priests, shall be this holy
oblation; toward the north five and twenty thousand in length,
and toward the west ten thousand in breadth, and toward the
east ten thousand in breadth, and toward the south five and
twenty thousand in length: and the sanctuary of the LORD shall
be in the midst thereof.

26:048:011 It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of
Zadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when
the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites went
astray.

26:048:012 And this oblation of the land that is offered shall be unto
them a thing most holy by the border of the Levites.

26:048:013 And over against the border of the priests the Levites shall
have five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in
breadth: all the length shall be five and twenty thousand, and
the breadth ten thousand.

26:048:014 And they shall not sell of it, neither exchange, nor alienate
the firstfruits of the land: for it is holy unto the LORD.

26:048:015 And the five thousand, that are left in the breadth over
against the five and twenty thousand, shall be a profane place
for the city, for dwelling, and for suburbs: and the city
shall be in the midst thereof.

26:048:016 And these shall be the measures thereof; the north side four
thousand and five hundred, and the south side four thousand
and five hundred, and on the east side four thousand and five
hundred, and the west side four thousand and five hundred.

26:048:017 And the suburbs of the city shall be toward the north two
hundred and fifty, and toward the south two hundred and fifty,
and toward the east two hundred and fifty, and toward the west
two hundred and fifty.

26:048:018 And the residue in length over against the oblation of the
holy portion shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand
westward: and it shall be over against the oblation of the
holy portion; and the increase thereof shall be for food unto
them that serve the city.

26:048:019 And they that serve the city shall serve it out of all the
tribes of Israel.

26:048:020 All the oblation shall be five and twenty thousand by five and
twenty thousand: ye shall offer the holy oblation foursquare,
with the possession of the city.

26:048:021 And the residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and
on the other of the holy oblation, and of the possession of
the city, over against the five and twenty thousand of the
oblation toward the east border, and westward over against the
five and twenty thousand toward the west border, over against
the portions for the prince: and it shall be the holy
oblation; and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst
thereof.

26:048:022 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the
possession of the city, being in the midst of that which is
the prince's, between the border of Judah and the border of
Benjamin, shall be for the prince.

26:048:023 As for the rest of the tribes, from the east side unto the
west side, Benjamin shall have a portion.

26:048:024 And by the border of Benjamin, from the east side unto the
west side, Simeon shall have a portion.

26:048:025 And by the border of Simeon, from the east side unto the west
side, Issachar a portion.

26:048:026 And by the border of Issachar, from the east side unto the
west side, Zebulun a portion.

26:048:027 And by the border of Zebulun, from the east side unto the west
side, Gad a portion.

26:048:028 And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the
border shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of strife in
Kadesh, and to the river toward the great sea.

26:048:029 This is the land which ye shall divide by lot unto the tribes
of Israel for inheritance, and these are their portions, saith
the Lord GOD.

26:048:030 And these are the goings out of the city on the north side,
four thousand and five hundred measures.

26:048:031 And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the
tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben,
one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi.

26:048:032 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three
gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate
of Dan.

26:048:033 And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures:
and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one
gate of Zebulun.

26:048:034 At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their
three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of
Naphtali.

26:048:035 It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of
the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.
