the three parties of worship

Ezekiel 45:13-17 (JDV)

Ezekiel 45:13 “This is the contribution you are to offer: Three quarts from five bushels of wheat and three quarts from five bushels of barley.
Ezekiel 45:14 The quota of oil in liquid measures will be one percent of every cor. The cor equals ten liquid measures or one standard larger capacity measure since ten liquid measures equal one standard larger capacity measure.
Ezekiel 45:15 And the quota from the flock is one animal out of every two hundred from the well-watered pastures of Israel. These are for the grain offerings, burnt offerings, and fellowship offerings, to make atonement for the people.” This is the declaration of the Lord Yahveh.
Ezekiel 45:16 “All the people of the land must take part in this contribution for the prince in Israel.
Ezekiel 45:17 Then the burnt offerings, grain offerings, and drink offerings for the festivals, New Moons, and Sabbaths – for all the appointed times of the house of Israel – will be the prince’s responsibility. He will provide the failure offerings, grain offerings, burnt offerings, and fellowship offerings to make atonement on behalf of the house of Israel.

The order of the contribution is significant. The people contribute to the prince. The prince provides for the offerings. This establishes a connection between the three parties of worship: the people, the leader, and the LORD. This is not a private religion. Everyone is connected. Everyone matters.
