Opening the eastern gate on the Sabbath (Ezek 46:1-46:1)

“Thus says Yahweh God!

‘The gate

Of the inner court

That faces east

Shall remain closed

On the six working days.

But on the Sabbath day,

It shall be opened.

On the day

Of the new moon,

It shall be opened.’”

Yahweh God spoke about the eastern gate. This eastern gate of the inner court was to remain shut at all times. There were 2 exceptions, the Sabbath and the feast of the new moon. Thus, it would be opened on these occasions, 64 times a year, 52 for the Sabbath days and 12 for the new moons.
