There they shall lay the most holy things, the grain offering, the sin offering and the guilt offering; for the place is holy.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:14 - “When the priests enter, then they shall not go out into the outer court from the sanctuary [fn]without laying there their garments in which they minister, for they are holy. They shall put on other garments; then they shall approach that which is for the people.”
