Adonay's portion of the Land

45:1 “And when you divide the land by lot into inheritance, offer a contribution to Adonai (יהוה), a set-apart portion of the land, in length twenty-five thousand cubits long, and in width ten thousand, this being set-apart throughout its border all around.

45:2“Of this a square plot is to be for the set-apart place, five hundred by five hundred, with fifty cubits around it for an open space

45:3“And from this measure you are to measure: twenty-five thousand cubits long and ten thousand wide. And in it is to be the set-apart place, the Most Set-apart Place.

45:4 “This is to be a set-apart portion of the land, belonging to the Kohenim, the attendants of the set-apart place, who draw near to serve Adonai (יהוה). And it shall be a place for their houses and set-apart ground for the set-apart place. 

45:5“And twenty-five thousand cubits in length and ten thousand in width is for the Levi'im, the attendants of the House, for them for a possession, twenty leshakhot (rooms).

45:6 And you shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the terumah (oblation) of the kadosh [portion]: it shall be for the whole beit Yisrael.

Portion of the Nasi (prince)

45:7 And a [portion shall be] for the Nasi (prince) on the one side and on the other side of the terumah (oblation) of the kadosh [portion], and of the possession of the city, before the terumah (oblation) of the kadosh [portion], and before the possession of the city, from the west side westward, and from the kadiym (east) side kadiym (eastward): and the length [shall be] over against one of the portions, from the west border to the kadiym (east) border.

45:8 In the land shall be his possession in Yisrael: and my Nasiim (princes) shall no more oppress my people; and [the rest of] the land shall they give to the beit Yisrael (ישׂרא) according to their Shevatim (Tribes).

45:9 Thus said Adonai (אדני) HaShem (יהוה);

Let it suffice you, O princes Yisrael: remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away your exactions from my people, said Adonai (אדני)  HaShem (יהוה).

45:10 You shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath.

45:11 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the tenth part of an homer: the measure thereof shall be after the homer.

45:12 And the shekel [shall be] twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.

45:13 This [is] the terumah (oblation) that you shall offer; the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of wheat, and you shall give the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of barley:

45:14 Concerning the ordinance of oil, the bath of oil, [ye shall offer] the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, [which is] an homer of ten baths; for ten baths [are] an homer:

45:15 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the fat pastures Yisrael; for a minchah, and for a Olah, and for Shelamim, to make reconciliation for them, said Adonai (אדני)  HaShem (יהוה).

45:16 All the people of the land shall give this terumah (oblation) for the prince in Yisrael.

45:17 And it shall be the prince's part [to give] olot, and minchahs, and drink offerings, in the moedim, and in the Rosh chodeshim, and in the shabbatot, in all solemnities of the beit Yisrael: he shall prepare the chattat, and the minchah, and the Olah, and the Shelamim, to make reconciliation for the beit Yisrael.

45:18 Thus said  Adonai (אדני) HaShem (יהוה);

“In the first month, on the first of the new moon, you are to take a young bull, a perfect one, and shall cleanse the set-apart place. 1st Aviv

45:19 And the Kohen shall take of the blood of the chattat, and put [it] upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the shaar of the inner court.

45:20 And so you shall do the seventh [day] of the month for every one that erreth, and for [him that is] simple: so shall you reconcile the house.

45:21 In the first [month], in the fourteenth day of the month, you shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. 14th Aviv - 20 Aviv

45:22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock [for] a chattat.

45:23 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a Olah to Adonai, seven bullocks and seven rams tamim (without blemish) daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily [for] a chattat.

45:24 And he shall prepare a minchah of an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an ephah.

45:25 In the seventh [month], in the fifteenth day of the month, shall he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the chattat, according to the Olah, and according to the minchah, and according to the oil. 15th Tishrei - 21st Tishrei
