Then he led me to the East Gate,
where the glory of Israel's God was coming in from the east. Its sound was like the sound of a mighty flood, and the earth was lit up with his glory.
What appeared when I looked was like what I had seen when hea came to destroy the city, and also like what I saw at the Chebar River, and I fell on my face.
Then the LORD's glory came into the temple by way of the East Gate.
A wind picked me up and brought me to the inner courtyard, and there the LORD's glory filled the temple.
A man was standing next to me, but the voice that I heard came from inside the temple.
He said to me, Human one, this is the place for my throne and the place for the soles of my feet, where I will dwell among the Israelites forever. The house of Israel will never again defile my holy name, neither they nor their kings, with their disloyaltiesb and with their kings' corpses at the shrines.
