1 Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "The gate of the inner courtyard facing east must be shut [on] the six of the days for work, but on the day of the Sabbath it must be opened and on the day of the new moon it must be opened.
2 And the prince shall come [by] way of the portico of the gate from [the] outside, and he shall stand at the doorframe of the gate and the priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his fellowship offerings, and he shall bow down at the threshold of the gate. Then he shall go out, but the gate shall not be closed until the evening.
3 And the people of the land will bow down [at] the doorway of that gate on the Sabbaths and on the new moons {before} Yahweh.
4 And the burnt offering which the prince will offer to Yahweh on the Sabbath day [must be] six male lambs without defect and a ram without defect.
5 And [the] grain offering [he will give] [shall be] an ephah {for each ram}, and for the male lambs [the] grain offering [shall be] {as much as he wants to give} and a hin of olive oil {for each ephah}.
6 And on the day of the new moon [he will offer] a bull, {a calf} without defect and six male lambs and a ram; they must be without defect.
7 And an ephah for each bull and an ephah for the ram he must provide [as] a grain offering, and [also] for the male lambs {as much as he can afford} and a hin [of] olive oil for each ephah.
8 And when the prince comes, on the way of the portico of the gate he shall come and by this way he shall go out.
9 And when the people of the land come {before} Yahweh at the festivals, [the] one coming [by] way of [the] gate of [the] north to bow down must go out [by] [the] way of [the] gate of [the] south, and the [one] coming [by] way of [the] gate of [the] south must go out [by the] way of [the] gate of [the] north, [so] he must not return [by] the way of the gate [by] which he came, but before it he shall go out opposite it.
10 And the prince [will be] in the midst of them; he will come in when they come in, and when they go out he will go out.
11 And at the festivals and at the appointed times, the grain offering will be an ephah with a bull and an ephah with the ram and with the male lambs, {as much as he wants to give}, and a hin of olive oil {for each ephah}.
12 And when the prince makes a freewill offering, a burnt offering, or a fellowship offering [as] a freewill offering to Yahweh, the gate facing east will be open for him. And he must offer his burnt offering and his fellowship offering {just as} he does on the day of the Sabbath, and [then] he must go out and the gate will shut {after he goes out}.
13 And a male lamb, {a yearling} without defect, he must provide as a burnt offering {daily} for Yahweh; {every morning} he must provide it.
14 And [a] grain offering he must provide in addition to it {every morning}, a sixth of an ephah and a third of a hin of olive oil to moisten the finely milled flour [as] a grain offering to Yahweh {as a perpetual statute}.
15 [So] they must provide the male lamb and the grain offering and the olive oil {every morning} {as a regular burnt offering}."
16 Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "If the prince gives a gift to any [one] from [among] his sons, it [is] his inheritance [and] it will belong to his sons; it is their possession as an inheritance.
17 And if he give a gift from his inheritance to one from [among] his servants, then it will belong to him until the year of release, and [then] it will return to the prince. His inheritance [with respect to] his sons will be only for them.
18 But the prince shall not take from the inheritance of the people to rob them, [separating them] from their property; from his [own] property he shall bestow an inheritance on his sons, so that my people will not be driven away, any one, from his property."
19 Then he brought me through the entrance which [was] on the side of the gate {to the holy chambers} to the priests; [the chambers] were facing northwards and, look, there [was] a place at the extreme end westwards.
20 And he said to me, "This [is] the place where the priests will boil the guilt offering and the sin offering, [and] where they shall bake the grain offering [in order] not to bring [them] out to the outer courtyard to make the people holy.
21 And he brought me to the outer courtyard and led me past the four corners of the courtyard; and look, {there was a courtyard in each corner of the courtyard}.
22 In the four corners of the courtyard [were] small courtyards forty [cubits] [in] length and thirty [cubits] [in] width, [each with] {the same measurements} for the four of them with corners.
23 And a row [was] all around inside them, and cooking-places [were] made under the rows of stones all around.
24 And he said to me, "These [are] the houses for cooking, where [the ones] serving the temple shall cook the sacrifices of the people."
