1 “ ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: The gate of the inner court facing east is to be shut on the six working days, but on the Sabbath day and on the day of the New Moon it is to be opened.
2 The prince is to enter from the outside through the portico of the gateway and stand by the gatepost. The priests are to sacrifice his burnt offering and his fellowship offerings. He is to bow down in worship at the threshold of the gateway and then go out, but the gate will not be shut until evening.
3 On the Sabbaths and New Moons the people of the land are to worship in the presence of the LORD at the entrance of that gateway.
4 The burnt offering the prince brings to the LORD on the Sabbath day is to be six male lambs and a ram, all without defect.
5 The grain offering given with the ram is to be an ephah,a and the grain offering with the lambs is to be as much as he pleases, along with a hinb of olive oil for each ephah.
6 On the day of the New Moon he is to offer a young bull, six lambs and a ram, all without defect.
