The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel   43: 1-7

43:1 And he led me to the gate which looked toward the way of the east.
43:2 And behold, the glory of the God of Israel entered along the way of the east. And his voice was like the voice of many waters. And the earth was resplendent before his majesty.
43:3 And I saw a vision in accord with the form that I had seen when he arrived so that he might destroy the city. And the form was in accord with the sight that I had seen beside the river Chebar. And I fell upon my face.
43:4 And the majesty of the Lord advanced into the temple, along the way of the gate which looked toward the east.
43:5 And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court. And behold, the house was filled with the glory of the Lord.
43:6 And I heard someone speaking to me from the house, and the man who was standing beside me
43:7 said to me: “Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the steps of my feet, is where I live: in the midst of the sons of Israel forever. And the house of Israel, they and their kings, shall no longer defile my holy name by their fornications, and by the ruinous ways of their kings, and by exalted places.
