Vision of the Glory of God Filling the Temple

1 Then he led me to the 1gate, the gate facing toward the east;
2 and behold, the 2glory of the God of Israel was coming from the way of the 3east. And His 4voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth 5shone with His glory.
3 And it was like the appearance of the vision which I saw, like the 6vision which I saw when He came to 7destroy the city. And the visions were like the vision which I saw by the 8river Chebar; and I 9fell on my face.
4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate facing toward the 10east.
5 And the 11Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the 12glory of the LORD filled the house.
6 Then I heard one speaking to me from the house, while a 13man was standing beside me.
7 He said to me, "Son of man, this is the place of My 14throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where * I will 15dwell among the sons of Israel forever. And the house of Israel will not again defile My holy name, neither they nor their kings, by their harlotry and by the 16corpses of their kings when they die,
8 by setting their threshold by My threshold and their door post beside My door post, with only the wall between Me and them. And they have 17defiled My holy name by their abominations which they have committed. So I have consumed them in My anger.
9 "Now let them 18put away their harlotry and the corpses of their kings far from Me; and I will 19dwell among them forever.
10 "As for you, son of man, 20describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be 21ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the 22plan.
11 "If they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the house, its structure, its 23exits, its entrances, all its designs, all its statutes, and all its laws. And write it 24in their sight, so that they may observe its whole design and all its statutes and 25do them.
12 "This is the law of the house: its entire area on the top of the 26mountain all around shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.
