1 καὶ ἐπέστρεψέν με κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς πύλης τῶν ἁγίων τῆς ἐξωτέρας τῆς βλεπούσης κα{T'} ἀνατολάς καὶ αὕτη ἦν κεκλεισμένη 2 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἡ πύλη αὕτη κεκλεισμένη ἔσται οὐκ ἀνοιχθήσεται καὶ οὐδεὶς μὴ διέλθῃ δ{I'} αὐτῆς ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεὸς τοῦ Ισραηλ εἰσελεύσεται δ{I'} αὐτῆς καὶ ἔσται κεκλεισμένη 3 διότι ὁ ἡγούμενος οὗτος καθήσεται ἐν αὐτῇ τοῦ φαγεῖν ἄρτον ἐναντίον κυρίου κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν αιλαμ τῆς πύλης εἰσελεύσεται καὶ κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ ἐξελεύσεται 1 Then he brought me back to the eastern gate of the outer precincts, that was fast shut. 2 Shut this gate must ever be, the Lord told me, nor open its doors to give man entrance again, since the Lord, the God of Israel, entered by it. Access to it is none, 3 even for the prince himself; sit there he may, to eat his share of the welcome-offering, but it is through the hall at the other end of the gateway he comes and goes. 1 Et convertit me ad viam portæ sanctuarii exterioris, quæ respiciebat ad orientem: et erat clausa. 2 Et dixit Dominus ad me: Porta hæc clausa erit: non aperietur, et vir non transibit per eam, quoniam Dominus Deus Israël ingressus est per eam: eritque clausa 3 principi. Princeps ipse sedebit in ea, ut comedat panem coram Domino: per viam portæ vestibuli ingredietur, et per viam ejus egredietur.
4 καὶ εἰσήγαγέν με κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς πύλης τῆς πρὸς βορρᾶν κατέναντι τοῦ οἴκου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ πλήρης δόξης ὁ οἶκος κυρίου καὶ πίπτω ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου 5 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου τάξον εἰς τὴν καρδίαν σου καὶ ἰδὲ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ τοῖς ὠσίν σου ἄκουε πάντα ὅσα ἐγὼ λαλῶ μετὰ σοῦ κατὰ πάντα τὰ προστάγματα οἴκου κυρίου καὶ κατὰ πάντα τὰ νόμιμα αὐτοῦ καὶ τάξεις τὴν καρδίαν σου εἰς τὴν εἴσοδον τοῦ οἴκου κατὰ πάσας τὰς ἐξόδους αὐτοῦ ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ἁγίοις 4 And so he took me towards the northern gate, in full view of the temple; and all the temple was filled with the brightness of the Lord’s presence, a sight that brought me to my knees, face to earth. 5 Give good heed, son of man, the Lord said to me; the open eye, the open ear! Rule and observance of the Lord’s house I mean to tell thee; of the temple, and who may approach it, of my sanctuary, and the manner of leaving it. 4 Et adduxit me per viam portæ aquilonis in conspectu domus: et vidi, et ecce implevit gloria Domini domum Domini: et cecidi in faciem meam. 5 Et dixit ad me Dominus: Fili hominis, pone cor tuum, et vide oculis tuis, et auribus tuis audi omnia quæ ego loquor ad te de universis cæremoniis domus Domini, et de cunctis legibus ejus: et pones cor tuum in viis templi per omnes exitus sanctuarii.
6 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τὸν παραπικραίνοντα πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Ισραηλ τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός ἱκανούσθω ὑμῖν ἀπὸ πασῶν τῶν ἀνομιῶν ὑμῶν οἶκος Ισραηλ 7 τοῦ εἰσαγαγεῖν ὑμᾶς υἱοὺς ἀλλογενεῖς ἀπεριτμήτους καρδίᾳ καὶ ἀπεριτμήτους σαρκὶ τοῦ γίνεσθαι ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις μου καὶ ἐβεβήλουν αὐτὰ ἐν τῷ προσφέρειν ὑμᾶς ἄρτους στέαρ καὶ αἷμα καὶ παρεβαίνετε τὴν διαθήκην μου ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ἀνομίαις ὑμῶν 8 καὶ διετάξατε τοῦ φυλάσσειν φυλακὰς ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις μου 9 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός πᾶς υἱὸς ἀλλογενὴς ἀπερίτμητος καρδίᾳ καὶ ἀπερίτμητος σαρκὶ οὐκ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὰ ἅγιά μου ἐν πᾶσιν υἱοῖς ἀλλογενῶν τῶν ὄντων ἐν μέσῳ οἴκου Ισραηλ 10 ἀλ{L'} ἢ οἱ Λευῖται οἵτινες ἀφήλαντο ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ ἐν τῷ πλανᾶσθαι τὸν Ισραηλ ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ κατόπισθεν τῶν ἐνθυμημάτων αὐτῶν καὶ λήμψονται ἀδικίαν αὐτῶν 11 καὶ ἔσονται ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις μου λειτουργοῦντες θυρωροὶ ἐπὶ τῶν πυλῶν τοῦ οἴκου καὶ λειτουργοῦντες τῷ οἴκῳ οὗτοι σφάξουσιν τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰς θυσίας τῷ λαῷ καὶ οὗτοι στήσονται ἐναντίον τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ λειτουργεῖν αὐτοῖς 12 ἀν{Q'} ὧν ἐλειτούργουν αὐτοῖς πρὸ προσώπου τῶν εἰδώλων αὐτῶν καὶ ἐγένετο τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ εἰς κόλασιν ἀδικίας ἕνεκα τούτου ἦρα τὴν χεῖρά μου ἐ{P'} αὐτούς λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός 13 καὶ οὐκ ἐγγιοῦσι πρός με τοῦ ἱερατεύειν μοι οὐδὲ τοῦ προσάγειν πρὸς τὰ ἅγια υἱῶν τοῦ Ισραηλ οὐδὲ πρὸς τὰ ἅγια τῶν ἁγίων μου καὶ λήμψονται ἀτιμίαν αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ πλανήσει ᾗ ἐπλανήθησαν 14 καὶ κατατάξουσιν αὐτοὺς φυλάσσειν φυλακὰς τοῦ οἴκου εἰς πάντα τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς πάντα ὅσα ἂν ποιήσωσιν 6 This message deliver, from the Lord God, to the rebel brood of Israel: Will you never have done with insult, men of Israel, 7 letting alien folk, that in mind and body circumcision have none, profane my house by entering the sanctuary? What avails it, to offer me bread, and fat, and blood, when all the while these foul doings of yours violate my covenant? 8 The sacred charge committed to you went for nothing; guardians of my own worship, in my own sanctuary, should be men of your choosing! 9 Place the alien may have, though body and mind be both uncircumcised, in the commonwealth of Israel, the Lord says; place in my sanctuary he has none. 10 There be Levites that have forsaken the following of me, when all the race of Israel went a-straying; that have betaken themselves to false gods, and must needs do penance for their fault. 11 What forbids they should be sacrists and door-keepers of mine, temple attendants to prepare burnt-sacrifice, slay victim, and stand ministering in the people’s presence? 12 Ministers of false worship, that betrayed Israel into guilt, they have made me their sworn enemy, and must be held to account for it; 13 never may they come before me as priests, never touch consecrated gift that is set apart for holy uses; disgraced they must needs be, penance must needs bear; 14 yet I would have them keep the doors of my house, and be charged with all the menial offices that belong to it. 6 Et dices ad exasperantem me domum Israël: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Sufficiant vobis omnia scelera vestra, domus Israël: 7 eo quod inducitis filios alienos incircumcisos corde, et incircumcisos carne, ut sint in sanctuario meo, et polluant domum meam: et offertis panes meos, adipem et sanguinem, et dissolvitis pactum meum in omnibus sceleribus vestris. 8 Et non servastis præcepta sanctuarii mei, et posuistis custodes observationum mearum in sanctuario meo vobismetipsis. 9 Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Omnis alienigena incircumcisus corde, et incircumcisus carne, non ingredietur sanctuarium meum: omnis filius alienus qui est in medio filiorum Israël. 10 Sed et Levitæ qui longe recesserunt a me in errore filiorum Israël, et erraverunt a me post idola sua, et portaverunt iniquitatem suam, 11 erunt in sanctuario meo æditui, et janitores portarum domus, et ministri domus: ipsi mactabunt holocausta et victimas populi, et ipsi stabunt in conspectu eorum ut ministrent eis. 12 Pro eo quod ministraverunt illis in conspectu idolorum suorum, et facti sunt domui Israël in offendiculum iniquitatis: idcirco levavi manum meam super eos, ait Dominus Deus, et portabunt iniquitatem suam. 13 Et non appropinquabunt ad me ut sacerdotio fungantur mihi, neque accedent ad omne sanctuarium meum juxta Sancta sanctorum: sed portabunt confusionem suam, et scelera sua quæ fecerunt. 14 Et dabo eos janitores domus in omni ministerio ejus, et in universis quæ fient in ea.
15 οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ Λευῖται οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ Σαδδουκ οἵτινες ἐφυλάξαντο τὰς φυλακὰς τῶν ἁγίων μου ἐν τῷ πλανᾶσθαι οἶκον Ισραηλ ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ οὗτοι προσάξουσιν πρός με τοῦ λειτουργεῖν μοι καὶ στήσονται πρὸ προσώπου μου τοῦ προσφέρειν μοι θυσίαν στέαρ καὶ αἷμα λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός 16 οὗτοι εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὰ ἅγιά μου καὶ οὗτοι προσελεύσονται πρὸς τὴν τράπεζάν μου τοῦ λειτουργεῖν μοι καὶ φυλάξουσιν τὰς φυλακάς μου 17 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς τὰς πύλας τῆς αὐλῆς τῆς ἐσωτέρας στολὰς λινᾶς ἐνδύσονται καὶ οὐκ ἐνδύσονται ἐρεᾶ ἐν τῷ λειτουργεῖν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τῆς πύλης τῆς ἐσωτέρας αὐλῆς 18 καὶ κιδάρεις λινᾶς ἕξουσιν ἐπὶ ταῖς κεφαλαῖς αὐτῶν καὶ περισκελῆ λινᾶ ἕξουσιν ἐπὶ τὰς ὀσφύας αὐτῶν καὶ οὐ περιζώσονται βίᾳ 19 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἐκπορεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν ἐξωτέραν πρὸς τὸν λαὸν ἐκδύσονται τὰς στολὰς αὐτῶν ἐν αἷς αὐτοὶ λειτουργοῦσιν ἐν αὐταῖς καὶ θήσουσιν αὐτὰς ἐν ταῖς ἐξέδραις τῶν ἁγίων καὶ ἐνδύσονται στολὰς ἑτέρας καὶ οὐ μὴ ἁγιάσωσιν τὸν λαὸν ἐν ταῖς στολαῖς αὐτῶν 15 The priests, the true Levites, shall be those sons of Sadoc that held fast by my temple worship when Israel left the following of me. Theirs to come forward as my ministers; theirs to wait upon my presence, offering me fat and blood of victims, the Lord God says; 16 theirs my sanctuary to enter, my table to approach, servants of mine that shall keep the charge I gave them. 17 Come they within the inner gate, they shall be all vested in linen; nothing of wool shall clothe them, when they serve me in the intimacy of the inner court; 18 mitres of linen on their brows, breeches of linen about their loins, with no such habiting as may bring them out in a sweat. 19 These vestments of office they must lay aside, and put away in the temple sacristy, when they go out to mingle with the people in the outer court; that holy contact is not for common folk; it is time they put on their workaday clothes instead. 15 Sacerdotes autem et Levitæ, filii Sadoc, qui custodierunt cæremonias sanctuarii mei, cum errarent filii Israël a me, ipsi accedent ad me ut ministrent mihi: et stabunt in conspectu meo, ut offerant mihi adipem et sanguinem, ait Dominus Deus. 16 Ipsi ingredientur sanctuarium meum, et ipsi accedent ad mensam meam, ut ministrent mihi, et custodiant cæremonias meas. 17 Cumque ingredientur portas atrii interioris, vestibus lineis induentur: nec ascendet super eos quidquam laneum, quando ministrant in portis atrii interioris et intrinsecus. 18 Vittæ lineæ erunt in capitibus eorum, et feminalia linea erunt in lumbis eorum, et non accingentur in sudore. 19 Cumque egredientur atrium exterius ad populum, exuent se vestimentis suis in quibus ministraverant, et reponent ea in gazophylacio sanctuarii: et vestient se vestimentis aliis, et non sanctificabunt populum in vestibus suis.
20 καὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν οὐ ξυρήσονται καὶ τὰς κόμας αὐτῶν οὐ ψιλώσουσιν καλύπτοντες καλύψουσιν τὰς κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν 21 καὶ οἶνον οὐ μὴ πίωσιν πᾶς ἱερεὺς ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν ἐσωτέραν 22 καὶ χήραν καὶ ἐκβεβλημένην οὐ λήμψονται ἑαυτοῖς εἰς γυναῖκα ἀλ{L'} ἢ παρθένον ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματος Ισραηλ καὶ χήρα ἐὰν γένηται ἐξ ἱερέως λήμψονται 23 καὶ τὸν λαόν μου διδάξουσιν ἀνὰ μέσον ἁγίου καὶ βεβήλου καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον ἀκαθάρτου καὶ καθαροῦ γνωριοῦσιν αὐτοῖς 24 καὶ ἐπὶ κρίσιν αἵματος οὗτοι ἐπιστήσονται τοῦ διακρίνειν τὰ δικαιώματά μου δικαιώσουσιν καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου κρινοῦσιν καὶ τὰ νόμιμά μου καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ἑορταῖς μου φυλάξονται καὶ τὰ σάββατά μου ἁγιάσουσιν 25 καὶ ἐπὶ ψυχὴν ἀνθρώπου οὐκ εἰσελεύσονται τοῦ μιανθῆναι ἀλ{L'} ἢ ἐπὶ πατρὶ καὶ ἐπὶ μητρὶ καὶ ἐπὶ υἱῷ καὶ ἐπὶ θυγατρὶ καὶ ἐπὶ ἀδελφῷ καὶ ἐπὶ ἀδελφῇ αὐτοῦ ἣ οὐ γέγονεν ἀνδρί μιανθήσεται 26 καὶ μετὰ τὸ καθαρισθῆναι αὐτὸν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἐξαριθμήσει αὐτῷ 27 καὶ ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ εἰσπορεύωνται εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν ἐσωτέραν τοῦ λειτουργεῖν ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ προσοίσουσιν ἱλασμόν λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός 28 καὶ ἔσται αὐτοῖς εἰς κληρονομίαν ἐγὼ κληρονομία αὐτοῖς καὶ κατάσχεσις αὐτοῖς οὐ δοθήσεται ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ὅτι ἐγὼ κατάσχεσις αὐτῶν 29 καὶ τὰς θυσίας καὶ τὰ ὑπὲρ ἁμαρτίας καὶ τὰ ὑπὲρ ἀγνοίας οὗτοι φάγονται καὶ πᾶν ἀφόρισμα ἐν τῷ Ισραηλ αὐτοῖς ἔσται 30 ἀπαρχαὶ πάντων καὶ τὰ πρωτότοκα πάντων καὶ τὰ ἀφαιρέματα πάντα ἐκ πάντων τῶν ἀπαρχῶν ὑμῶν τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν ἔσται καὶ τὰ πρωτογενήματα ὑμῶν δώσετε τῷ ἱερεῖ τοῦ θεῖναι εὐλογίας ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τοὺς οἴκους ὑμῶν 31 καὶ πᾶν θνησιμαῖον καὶ θηριάλωτον ἐκ τῶν πετεινῶν καὶ ἐκ τῶν κτηνῶν οὐ φάγονται οἱ ἱερεῖς 20 They shall be at pains to cut their hair, not grow it long; yet cropped their heads must not be. 21 As for wine, a priest may not drink it when he is soon to enter the sanctuary. 22 Wed he, it must be a maid he weds, of Israelite birth; not rejected wife or widow, save it be the widow of another priest. 23 Their office it is, to teach the people what is clean and unclean, what is holy and what profane; 24 when dispute arises, to take their place at my judgement-seat and give award; my feasts with due rite and ordinance to observe, my sabbaths to keep holy. 25 Never shall they defile themselves with dead body’s contact, save only it be father or mother, son or daughter, brother or unwedded sister of theirs. 26 Cleansed though he be after such contact, a priest must wait for seven days yet, 27 nor enter the inner court to do service in my sanctuary, the Lord God says, till he has made an offering in amends for his fault. 28 And for the priestly tribe, it must have no patrimony assigned to it; I am their patrimony, nor needs he portion, whose portion is his God. 29 Bloodless offering they shall eat, and the victim that is offered for a fault or a wrong done; theirs every gift an Israelite vows to me, 30 theirs the first of all first-fruits, and the residue of all you offer; and the first batch of your baking you must give to the priest, to win his blessing for you and yours. 31 Bird or beast that drops dead, or has been a wild thing’s prey, the priest may not eat. 20 Caput autem suum non radent, neque comam nutrient: sed tondentes attondent capita sua. 21 Et vinum non bibet omnis sacerdos, quando ingressurus est atrium interius. 22 Et viduam et repudiatam non accipient uxores, sed virgines de semine domus Israël: sed et viduam quæ fuerit vidua a sacerdote, accipient. 23 Et populum meum docebunt quid sit inter sanctum et pollutum, et inter mundum et immundum ostendent eis. 24 Et cum fuerit controversia, stabunt in judiciis meis, et judicabunt: leges meas et præcepta mea in omnibus solemnitatibus meis custodient, et sabbata mea sanctificabunt. 25 Et ad mortuum hominem non ingredientur, ne polluantur, nisi ad patrem et matrem, et filium et filiam, et fratrem, et sororem quæ alterum virum non habuerit: in quibus contaminabuntur. 26 Et postquam fuerit emundatus, septem dies numerabuntur ei. 27 Et in die introitus sui in sanctuarium ad atrium interius, ut ministret mihi in sanctuario, offeret pro peccato suo, ait Dominus Deus. 28 Non erit autem eis hæreditas: ego hæreditas eorum. Et possessionem non dabitis eis in Israël: ego enim possessio eorum. 29 Victimam et pro peccato et pro delicto ipsi comedent, et omne votum in Israël ipsorum erit. 30 Et primitiva omnium primogenitorum, et omnia libamenta ex omnibus quæ offeruntur, sacerdotum erunt: et primitiva ciborum vestrorum dabitis sacerdoti, ut reponat benedictionem domui tuæ. 31 Omne morticinum, et captum a bestia, de avibus et de pecoribus, non comedent sacerdotes.
