Ezekiel 46



Verse 5
And the meat offering [shall be] an ephah for a ram, and the meat offering for the lambs a as he shall be able to give, and an hin of oil to an ephah.

(a) That is, as much as he will.

Verse 7
And he shall prepare a meat offering, an ephah for a bull, and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs b according as his hand shall be able, and an hin of oil to an ephah.

(b) Meaning, as he will think good.

Verse 17
But if he shall give a gift of his inheritance to one of his servants, then it shall be his to the c year of liberty; afterward it shall return to the prince: but his inheritance shall be to his sons for them.

(c) Which was at the Jubile, (Leviticus 25:9).

Verse 18
Moreover the prince shall not d take of the people's inheritance by oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; [but] he shall give his sons inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not dispossessed every man from his possession.

(d) But be content with that portion that God has assigned him, as in (Ezekiel 45:8).

Verse 20
Then said he to me, This [is] the place where the priests shall boil the trespass offering and the sin offering, where they shall bake the meat offering; that they bear [them] not out into the outer court, e to sanctify the people.

(e) That the people should not have to do with those things which belong to the Lord, and think it lawful for them to eat them.
