Boiling Places for Offerings
Then he brought me through the entrance, which was r at the side of the gate, to the north row of s the holy chambers for the priests, and behold, a place was there at the extreme western end of them.
And he said to me, "This is the place where the priests t shall boil the guilt offering and the sin offering, and where u they shall bake the grain offering, in order not to bring them out into the outer court and so v transmit holiness to the people."
Then he brought me out to the outer court and led me around to the four corners of the court. And behold, in each corner of the court there was another court -
in the four corners of the court were small courts, forty cubits long and thirty broad; the four were of the same size.
On the inside, around each of the four courts was a row of masonry, with hearths made at the bottom of the rows all around.
Then he said to me, "These are the kitchens where those who w minister at the temple t shall boil the sacrifices of the people."

Thus says the Lord God : The gate of the inner court that faces east shall be shut on the six working days, but on the Sabbath day it shall be opened, and on the day of the new moon it shall be opened.
And before the chambers was a passage inward, ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long, and their doors were on the north.
2 Chronicles 35:13
And they roasted the Passover lamb with fire according to the rule; and they boiled the holy offerings in pots, in cauldrons, and in pans, and carried them quickly to all the lay people.
When you bring a grain offering baked in the oven as an offering, it shall be unleavened loaves of fine flour mixed with oil or unleavened wafers smeared with oil.
And when they go out into the outer court to the people, they shall put off the garments in which they have been ministering and lay them in the holy chambers. And they shall put on other garments, lest they transmit holiness to the people with their garments.
They shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having oversight at the gates of the temple and ministering in the temple. They shall slaughter the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before the people, to minister to them.
And he said to me, "This is the place where the priests shall boil the guilt offering and the sin offering, and where they shall bake the grain offering, in order not to bring them out into the outer court and so transmit holiness to the people.
