Ezekiel 42



Verses 1-20


Then he brought me into the outer court, to the north: and he brought me into the chamber that was against the separate place ( Ezekiel 42:1 ),

And as I say, I"m going to leave you with this. You may take this diagram home. And the separate place is that area, you"ll notice, that surrounds the temple house itself. And he begins to describe for him here this separate place that was about the temple house, verse Ezekiel 42:13 there.

where the priests that approach the LORD shall eat the most holy things ( Ezekiel 42:13 ):

So you see this little chamber for the priests, and there are four of them off of this separate place, where the priests eat before the Lord of the portion of the sacrifices that are brought.

and they shall lay the most holy things, the meal offerings, the sin offerings, the trespass offerings; for the place is holy. And when the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of the holy place into the outer court, but they shall lay their garments wherein they minister; for they are holy; they shall put on other garments, and shall approach those things which are for the people ( Ezekiel 42:13-14 ).

So there are special robes for the priests when they are in this place and they"re not to be worn outside. "
