16'Thussays the LordGOD, "If the princegives a 31gift out of his inheritance to any of his sons, it shall belong to his sons; it is their possession by inheritance.
"But if he gives a gift from his inheritance to one of his servants, it shall be his until the 32year of liberty; then it shall return to the prince. His inheritance shall be only his sons'; it shall belong to them.
"The prince shall 33not take from the people'sinheritance, t34thrusting them out of their possession; he shall give his sonsinheritance from his own possessionso that My people will not be scattered, anyone from his possession.""'
Then he brought me through the 35entrance, which was at the side of the gate, into the holychambers for the priests, which facednorth; and behold, there was a place at the extremerear toward the west.
He said to me, "This is the placewhere the priests shall boil the 36guiltoffering and the sinoffering and where they shall 37bake the grain offering, in order that they may not bring them out into the outercourt to transmitholiness to the people."
Then he brought me out into the outercourt and led me across to the fourcorners of the court; and behold, in everycorner of the court there was a small court.
In the fourcorners of the court there were enclosedcourts, forty cubits long and thirtywide; these four in the corners were uthe samesize.
There was a row of masonry roundabout in them, around the four of them, and boilingplaces were madeunder the rowsroundabout.
Then he said to me, "These are the boilingvplaceswhere the ministers of the house shall boil the sacrifices of the people."
