1 關閉他又領我回到聖所朝東的外,這關閉著。

2 耶和華對我:“這必須關閉,不可打開;任何也不得從那裡進入;因為耶和華以色列的已經從那裡進入,所以這必須關閉

3 只有君王可以在裡面,在耶和華面前餅;他必須從進入,也必須從原。”

4 外族人不准進殿他又領我經過到殿前;我觀,見耶和華的榮耀充滿耶和華的殿,我就臉伏在地。

5 耶和華對我:“人子啊!我所告訴耶和華殿的一切規條和則,你都要留,用眼,用耳,並要留聖殿的入口和聖所的所有出口。

6 你要對悖逆的以色列:‘耶和華這樣以色列家啊!你們所行一切可憎的事,該夠了吧!

7 你們除了行這一切可憎的事之外,還在你們把脂肪和血獻給我作食物的時候,把身都未受割禮的外族人進我的聖所,玷污了我的殿,違背了我的約。

8 你們自己沒有看守我的物,卻委派別人在我的所裡代你們看守。’”

9 利未人的職責耶和華這樣:“以色列人中一切身都未受割禮的外族人,都不可進入我的聖所。

10 以色列人走迷了的時候,有利未人遠離我,走迷了。他們離開我去隨從他們的偶像,他們必擔當自己的罪孽。

11 他們要在我的聖所作僕役,看管殿,在聖殿中供職;他們要為人民宰殺燔祭牲和其他祭牲,又要站在人民面前侍候他們。

12 因為這些利未人曾在他們的偶像前侍候這人民,成了陷以色列家在罪孽中的絆腳石。因此,我向他們舉起誓,他們必要擔當自己的罪孽。這是耶和華的宣告。

13 他們不可親我,作我的祭司,也不可親我的一切物,或至之物。他們必要擔當自己的羞辱和他們所行可憎之事的報應。

14 然而我要委派他們看守聖殿,辦理聖殿的一切事務,作一切當作的工。

15 祭司當守的條例“以色列人走迷了路,離開我的時候,有祭司利未人,就是撒督的子孫,仍然看守我的聖所;只有他們可以親我,事奉我,侍立在我面前,把脂肪和血獻給我。這是耶和華的宣告。

16 他們可以進入我的聖所,可以走我的桌前事奉我,守我所吩咐的職責。

17 每逢他們進入內院的,必須穿上細麻衣;每逢他們在內院的和聖殿裡供職,他們不可穿上羊毛的衣服

18 他們上要戴細麻布巾,腰間要穿細麻布的褲子;不可穿上使身體容易出汗的衣服。

19 每逢他們出到外院民眾那裡,就要把供職的衣服脫下,存放在殿的房子裡,然後穿上別的衣服,免得因自己的衣使人民成聖

20 他們不可剃,也不可留髮,只可剪短髮。

21 所有祭司進入內院的時候,都不可喝酒

22 他們不可娶寡婦或被休的婦人;只可娶以色列後裔中的處女,或是祭司留下的寡婦。

23 他們要教導我的子民分別俗,使他們分辨潔淨的和不潔淨的。

24 他們要在爭訟的事上作判斷,要按著我的典章判斷。他們要在我所有的節期裡謹守我的律條例,守我的安息日日。

25 他們不可接近,玷污自己,但如果是他們的父親母親兒子女兒兄弟或是未嫁的姊妹,他們就可以玷污自己。

26 祭司潔淨以,還要再等

27 進入內院,到所去,在所供職的時候,他要獻上贖祭。這是耶和華的宣告。

28 耶和華是祭司的產業“祭司必有產業;我就是他們的產業。你們不可在以色列他們基業;我就是他們的基業。

29 素祭、贖祭和贖愆祭,他們都可以以色列中所有獻給耶和華之物,都要歸給他們。

30 所有初熟之物中最好的和你們獻上的一切供物,都要歸祭司;你們也要把最先磨好的麵祭司,好讓福氣臨到你的家。

31 無論是飛或是走,凡是自然死的,或是被撕裂的,祭司都不可
