katapi HOME Ezekiel 43:1-12 - The LORD returns to the temple.  Eze.43.1-12

43 1 He led me to the gate, the gate facing eastwards, 43 2 and I beheld the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the sound of a mighty torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. 43 3 The form that I saw was the same as that which I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and as that which I had seen by the river Kebar Or the Kebar canal, and I fell on my face. 43 4 The glory of the LORD came up to the temple towards the gate which faced eastwards. 43 5 A spirit Or wind lifted me up and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple.

43 6 Then I heard one speaking to me from the temple, and the man was standing at my side. 43 7 He said, Man, do you see the place of my throne, the place where I set my feet, where I will dwell among the Israelites for ever? Neither they nor their kings shall ever defile my holy name again with their wanton disloyalty, and with the corpses Or effigies of their kings when they die. 43 8 They set their threshold by mine and their door-post beside mine, with a wall between me and them, and they defiled my holy name with the abominations they committed, and I destroyed them in my anger. 43 9 But now they shall abandon their wanton disloyalty and remove the corpses Or effigies of their kings far from me, and I will dwell among them for ever.

43 10 So tell the Israelites, man, about this temple, its appearance and proportions, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities. 43 11 If they are ashamed of all they have done, you shall describe to them the temple and its fittings, its exits and entrances, all the details and particulars of its elevation and plan; explain them and draw them before their eyes, so that they may keep them in mind and carry them out. 43 12 This is the plan of the temple to be built on the top of the mountain; all its precincts on every side shall be most holy.
