1“Moreover, when you will divide by lot the land for inheritance, you must offer an offering to Yahweh, a holy portion of the land; the length must be the length of 25,000 reeds, and the breadth must be 10,000; it will be holy in all its border all around.
  2Of this there will be for the holy place 500 in length by 500 in breadth, square all around, and fifty cubits for its open land all around.
  3Of this measure you will measure a length of 25,000 and a breadth of 10,000, and in it will be the sanctuary, which is most holy.
  4It is a holy portion of the land; it will be for the priests, the ministers of the sanctuary, who come near to minister to Yahweh, and it will be a place for their houses, and a holy place for the sanctuary.
  525,000 in length and 10,000 in breadth will be to the Levites, the ministers of the house, for a possession to themselves, for twenty rooms.
 

6You must appoint the possession of the city 5,000 wide and 25,000 long, side by side with the offering of the holy portion; it will be for the whole house of Israel.
  7Whatever is for the ruler will be on the one side and on the other side of the holy offering and of the possession of the city, in front of the holy offering and in front of the possession of the city, on the west side westward and on the east side eastward; and in length answerable to one of the portions, from the west border to the east border.
  8In the land it will be to him for a possession in Israel; and my rulers will no more oppress my people; but they will give the land to the house of Israel according to their tribes.
 

9This is what the Lord Yahweh says: Enough, you rulers of Israel! Put away violence and destruction, and do what is just and right. Cease your evictions of my people, says the Lord Yahweh.
  10You must have just balances, and a just ephah and a just bath.
  11The ephah and the bath will be of one measure, that the bath may contain the tenth part of a homer, and the ephah the tenth part of a homer: its measure will be according to the homer.
  12The shekel will be twenty gerahs. 20 shekels plus 25 shekels plus 15 shekels will be your mina.
 

13This is the offering that you are to offer: the sixth part of an ephah from a homer of wheat; and you are to give the sixth part of an ephah from a homer of barley;
  14and the set portion of oil, of the bath of oil, the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, which is ten baths, even a homer (for ten baths are a homer),
  15and one lamb of the flock, out of 200, from the well-watered pastures of Israel—for a grain offering, and for a burnt offering, and for peace offerings, to make atonement for them, says the Lord Yahweh.
  16All the people of the land must give to this offering for the ruler in Israel.
  17It will be the ruler’s part to give the burnt offerings, and the grain offerings, and the drink offerings, in the feasts and on the new moons, and on the Sabbaths, in all the appointed feasts of the house of Israel; he will prepare the sin offering, and the grain offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make atonement for the house of Israel.
 

18This is what the Lord Yahweh says: In the first month, in the first day of the month, you are to take a young bull without blemish, and you are to cleanse the sanctuary.
  19The priest must take of the blood of the sin offering and put it on the door posts of the house, and on the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and on the posts of the gate of the inner court.
  20So you must do on the seventh day of the month for everyone who errs, and for him who is simple; so you will make atonement for the house.
 

21In the first month, in the 14th day of the month, you are to have the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread will be eaten.
  22On that day will the ruler prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bull for a sin offering.
  23The seven days of the feast he will prepare a burnt offering to Yahweh, seven bulls and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days, and a male goat daily for a sin offering.
  24He will prepare a grain offering, an ephah for a bull, and an ephah for a ram, and a hin of oil to an ephah.
  25In the seventh month, in the 15th day of the month, in the feast, will he do the like the seven days; according to the sin offering, according to the burnt offering, and according to the grain offering, and according to the oil.”
