Ezekiel 43 (Wycliffe)

View In My Bible
1 And he led me out to the gate, that beheld to the east way. (And he led me out to the gate, that faced east.) 2 And lo! the glory of God of Israel entered by the east way; and a voice was to it, as the voice of many waters, and the earth shined of the majesty of him. (And lo! the glory of the God of Israel entered from the east; and his voice was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his majesty.) 3 And I saw a vision, by the likeness which I had seen, when he came to destroy the city; and the likeness was like the beholding which I had seen beside the flood Chebar. And I fell down on my face, (And I saw a vision, of the same form which I had seen, when he had come to destroy the city; and the form was like what I had seen by the Chebar River. And I fell down on my face,) 4 and the majesty of the Lord entered into the temple by the way of the gate that beheld to the east. (and the majesty of the Lord entered into the Temple by way of the gate that faced east.) 5 And the Spirit raised me, and led me into the inner foreyard; and lo! the house (of the Lord) was filled with the glory of the Lord. (And the Spirit raised me up, and led me into the inner courtyard; and lo! the Temple was filled with the glory of the Lord.) 6 And I heard one speaking to me (out) of the house (of the Lord). And the man that stood beside me, (And I heard someone speaking to me from the Temple. And the man who stood beside me also heard the voice.) 7 said to me, Thou, son of man, this is the place of my seat, and the place of the steps of my feet, where I dwell in the midst of the sons of Israel without end; and the house of Israel shall no more defoul mine holy name, they, and the kings of them, in their fornications, and in the fallings of their kings, and in (their) high places. (And the Lord said to me, Thou, son of man, this is the place of my throne, and the place of the steps of my feet, where I shall live in the midst of the Israelites forever; and the house of Israel shall no more defile my holy name, they, and their kings, with their fornications, or their idolatries, and with the fallings of their kings, and with their high places, that is, their hill shrines.) 8 Which made their threshold beside my threshold, and their posts beside my posts, and a wall was betwixt me and them; and they defouled mine holy name in abominations which they did; wherefore I wasted them in my wrath (and they defiled my holy name with the abominations which they did; and so I destroyed them in my anger). 9 Now therefore put they away far their fornication, and the fallings of their kings from me; and I shall dwell ever in the midst of them. (And so now, they must put their fornication, that is, their idolatry, and the sins of their kings, far away from me; and then I shall live forevermore in their midst.) 10 But thou, son of man, show the temple to the house of Israel, and be they ashamed of their wickednesses; and mete they the building, (But thou, son of man, show this Temple to the house of Israel, and measure they the building, and be they ashamed of their wickednesses.) 11 and be they ashamed of all things which they did. Thou shalt show to them, and thou shalt write before the eyes of them the figure of the house, and of the building thereof; the out-goings, and the enterings, and all the describings thereof, and all the commandments thereof, and all the order thereof, and all the laws thereof; that they keep all the describings thereof, and commandments thereof, and do those. (And if they be ashamed of all the things which they have done, then thou shalt show them, and thou shalt draw before their eyes the plan for this Temple, and for its building; the goings out, or the exits, and the enterings, or the entrances, and all its describings, and all its rules and regulations, and all its order, and all its laws; so that they follow all of its describings, and its rules and regulations, and do them.) 12 This is the law of the house (of the Lord), in the highness of the hill; all the coasts thereof in compass is the holy of holy things; therefore this is the law of the house (of the Lord). (This is the law of the House of the Lord, on the highness of the hill; all the area surrounding it is most holy; and so this is the law of the Temple.) 13 Forsooth these be the measures of the altar, in a veriest cubit, that had a cubit and a span; in the bosom thereof was a cubit in length, and a cubit in breadth; and the end thereof till to the brink, and one span in compass; also this was the ditch of the altar. (And these be the measurements of the altar, in a true cubit, that is, a cubit and a span; its bottom, or its base, was a cubit in height, and a cubit in breadth, or projecting out; and all around its outside edge was a ditch, one span deep; this was the altar's ditch, or its gutter.) 14 And from the bosom of the earth till to the last height were two cubits, and the breadth of one cubit; and from the less height (of the pedestal), till to the greater height (of the pedestal), were four cubits, and the breadth was of one cubit; (And from the top of the base on the ground, unto the top of the second base, was two cubits, set-in one cubit from the edge; and from the top of the second base, unto the top of the pedestal, was four cubits, set-in one cubit from the edge;) 15 forsooth that ariel, that is, the higher part of the altar, was of four cubits; and from the altar till to above were four horns. (and the altar was four cubits high; and at the corners all around the altar were four horns, each horn one cubit high.) 16 And the altar of twelve cubits in length was four-cornered with even sides, by twelve cubits of breadth. (And the top of the altar was twelve cubits in length, by twelve cubits in breadth, that is, four-cornered with equal sides.) 17 And the height of fourteen cubits of length was by fourteen cubits of breadth, in four corners thereof. And a crown of half a cubit was in the compass thereof, and the bosom thereof was of one cubit by compass; forsooth the degrees thereof were turned to the east. (And so the space for the altar was fourteen cubits in length, by fourteen cubits in breadth, unto its four corners. And a rim of half a cubit was all around it, and its bottom, or its base, was set-in one cubit all around; and its steps were turned toward the east.) 18 And he said to me, Thou, son of man, the Lord God saith these things, These be the customs of the altar, in whatever day it is made, that men offer on it burnt sacrifice, and blood be shed out. (And he said to me, Thou, son of man, the Lord God saith these things, These be the customs for the altar, or the way to consecrate it, once it is made, so that people can offer burnt sacrifice on it, and blood can be thrown against it.) 19 And thou shalt give to priests and deacons that be of the seed of Zadok, that nigh to me, saith the Lord God, that they offer to me a calf of the drove for sin. (Thou shalt give to the levitical priests, who be the descendants of Zadok, and who alone may come near me, saith the Lord God, a calf from the herd, that they offer to me for a sin offering.) 20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and shalt put on four horns thereof, and on four corners of [the] height, and on the crown in compass; and thou shalt cleanse it, and [fully] make clean. (And thou shalt take some of its blood, and shalt put it on the four horns on the top of the altar, and on the four corners of the middle section, and on the the crown all around it; and so thou shalt cleanse it, and make it fully clean.) 21 And thou shalt take the calf which is offered for sin, and thou shalt burn it in a separated place of the house (of the Lord), without the saintuary. (And then thou shalt take the calf which is offered for sin, and thou shalt burn it in an appointed place of the Temple area, outside the sanctuary.) 22 And in the second day thou shalt offer a buck of goats, which is without wem, for sin; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they cleansed (it) in the calf. (And on the second day thou shalt offer a goat-buck, which is without blemish, or without fault, for sin; and then they shall cleanse, or shall purify, the altar, like they cleansed it with the calf.) 23 And when thou hast [ful]filled that cleansing, thou shalt offer a calf of the drove, which calf is without wem, and a wether without wem of the flock. (And when thou hast finished that cleansing, thou shalt offer a calf from the herd, which calf is without blemish, or without fault, and a ram without blemish from the flock.) 24 And thou shalt offer those in the sight of the Lord; and (the) priests shall put salt on those, and shall offer those into (a) burnt sacrifice to the Lord (and shall offer them for a burnt sacrifice to the Lord). 25 By seven days, thou shalt make (ready) a buck of goats for sin, each day; and they shall offer a calf of the drove, and a wether unwemmed of sheep. (For seven days, each day for a sin offering thou shalt offer a goat-buck, a calf from the herd, and a ram from the sheep, all of them without blemish, or without fault.) 26 By seven days they shall [fully] cleanse the altar, and shall make it clean, and they shall [ful]fill the hand thereof. (And so for seven days they shall fully cleanse, or shall fully purify, the altar, and shall make it clean, and they shall consecrate it.) 27 Forsooth when seven days be [ful]filled, in the eighth day and further, (the) priests shall make on the altar your burnt sacrifices, and those things which they offer for peace; and I shall be pleased to you, saith the Lord God. (And when the seven days be fulfilled, on the eighth day, and afterward, the priests shall offer upon the altar your burnt sacrifices, and your peace offerings; and then I shall be pleased with you, saith the Lord God.)
