Ezekiel 44:3Wrench

BACK NEXT

[This gate] is [reserved] for the Prince [Messiah].
The Prince will sit in [the East Gate] to eat [his] meal[s] before YHVH.
[The prince] will enter [the temple] by the road [outside] the porch of the [East] gate.
He'll exit [the temple] by that same [road].โ€

Authority

Note: "Prince" can be construed to mean anything from โ€˜Messiahโ€™ to โ€˜resurrected Davidโ€™ to โ€˜kingโ€™ to โ€˜exalted oneโ€™ to simply โ€˜high [priest].โ€™ This may indicate a dual fulfillment of this prophecy.
