     [ Illustration: Today's First Image shows an artist's version of the division of the Land of Israel. This is the subject of the first six verses of today's chapter. The Second Image shows a conception of the Holy Portion of the Land of Israel with the Temple of Ezekiel in its midst. ]


[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Ezekiel 45, the LORD describes several things, beginning with the allotments of the land which are to be given to the Levites, the priests, the other Israelites, and the prince - - with the Temple in the middle. He also gives regulations for weights and measures and for the regular and occasional sacrifices; and he commands that abuses of these be removed.
     The Portions of the Land (1-8). For the LORD (1). For the Sanctuary (2). For the Priests (3-4). For the Levites (5). For the House of Israel (6). For the Prince (7).
     The Ordinances for the Princes (8-25). They will cease to oppress the people (8-9). Standards of Weight, Measure, and Coinage (10-12). Offerings and Feasts (13-17). Grain offerings, burnt offerings, peace offerings, sin offerings, and the Passover (18-25).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

     1 Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot [this] the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about [circling].

     2 Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length, with five hundred in breadth, square round about [circling]; and fifty cubits round about [circling] for the suburbs thereof.

     3 And of this measure shalt thou measure the length of five and twenty thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand: and in it shall be the sanctuary and the most holy [holy of holies] place. 4 The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister unto [this] the LORD: and it shall be a place for their houses, and an holy place for the sanctuary.

     5 And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten thousand of breadth, shall also the Levites, the ministers of the house, have for themselves, for a possession for twenty chambers.

     6 And ye shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the oblation of the holy portion: it shall be for the whole house of Israel.

     7 And a portion shall be for the prince on the one side and on the other side [from this and from this] of the oblation of the holy portion, and of the possession of the city, before [toward the face of] the oblation of the holy portion, and before [and toward the face of] the possession of the city, from the west side westward, and from the east side eastward: and the length shall be over against one of the portions, from the west border unto the east border. 8 In the land shall be his possession in Israel: and my princes shall no more oppress [this] my people; and the rest of the land shall they give to the house of Israel according to their tribes. 9 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel: remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away your exactions from my people, saith the Lord GOD.

     10 Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath.

     11 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the tenth part of an homer: the measure thereof shall be after the homer.

     12 And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.

     13 This is the oblation that ye shall offer; the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of wheat, and ye shall give the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of barley: 14 Concerning the ordinance of oil, the bath of oil, ye shall offer the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, which is an homer of ten baths; for ten baths are an homer: 15 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the fat pastures of Israel; for a meat offering, and for a burnt offering, and for peace offerings, to make reconciliation for them, saith the Lord GOD.

     16 All the people of the land shall give this oblation for the prince in Israel. 17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare [this] the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.

     18 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the first month, in the first day of the month, thou shalt take a young bullock [a calf, a son of a herd ] without blemish, and cleanse [this] the sanctuary: 19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court. 20 And so thou shalt do the seventh day of the month for every one that erreth, and for him that is simple: so shall ye reconcile [this] the house.

     21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. 22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering. 23 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to the LORD, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering. 24 And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an ephah. 25 In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the sin offering, according to the burnt offering, and according to the meat offering, and according to the oil.
