Ezekiel 44:1-2 New English Translation (NET Bible)
The Closed Gate
44 Then he brought me back by way of the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces east, but it was shut. 2 The Lord said to me: “This gate will be shut; it will not be opened, and no one will enter by it. For the Lord, the God of Israel, has entered by it; therefore it will remain shut.
