Ezekiel chapter 40

1
In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was taken, on that same day the hand of the LORD was upon me and He brought me there.
2
In the visions of God He brought me into the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, and on it to the south [there was] a structure like a city.
3
So He brought me there; and behold, there was a man whose appearance was like the appearance of bronze, with a line of flax and a measuring rod in his hand; and he was standing in the gateway.
4
The man said to me, "Son of man, see with your eyes, hear with your ears, and give attention to all that I am going to show you; for you have been brought here in order to show [it] to you. Declare to the house of Israel all that you see."
5
And behold, there was a wall on the outside of the temple all around, and in the man's hand was a measuring rod of six cubits, [each of which was] a cubit and a handbreadth. So he measured the thickness of the wall, one rod; and the height, one rod.
6
Then he went to the gate which faced east, went up its steps and measured the threshold of the gate, one rod in width; and the other threshold [was] one rod in width.
7
The guardroom [was] one rod long and one rod wide; and [there were] five cubits between the guardrooms. And the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate facing inward [was] one rod.
8
Then he measured the porch of the gate facing inward, one rod.
9
He measured the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and its side pillars, two cubits. And the porch of the gate was faced inward.
10
The guardrooms of the gate toward the east [numbered] three on each side; the three of them had the same measurement. The side pillars also had the same measurement on each side.
11
And he measured the width of the gateway, ten cubits, and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.
12
[There was] a barrier [wall] one cubit [wide] in front of the guardrooms on each side; and the guardrooms [were] six cubits [square] on each side.
13
He measured the gate from the roof of the one guardroom to the roof of the other, a width of twenty-five cubits from [one] door to [the] door opposite.
14
He made the side pillars sixty cubits [high]; the gate [extended] round about to the side pillar of the courtyard.
15
[From] the front of the entrance gate to the front of the inner porch of the gate [was] fifty cubits.
16
[There were] shuttered windows [looking] toward the guardrooms, and toward their side pillars within the gate all around, and likewise for the porches. And [there were] windows all around inside; and on [each] side pillar [were] palm tree ornaments.
17
Then he brought me into the outer court, and behold, [there were] chambers and a pavement made for the court all around; thirty chambers faced the pavement.
18
The pavement ([that is], the lower pavement) [was] by the side of the gates, corresponding to the length of the gates.
19
Then he measured the width from the front of the lower gate to the front of the exterior of the inner court, a hundred cubits on the east and on the north.
20
[As for] the gate of the outer court which faced the north, he measured its length and its width.
21
It had three guardrooms on each side; and its side pillars and its porches had the same measurement as the first gate. Its length [was] fifty cubits and the width twenty-five cubits.
22
Its windows and its porches and its palm tree ornaments [had] the same measurements as the gate which faced toward the east; and it was reached by seven steps, and its porch [was] in front of them.
23
The inner court had a gate opposite the gate on the north as well as [the gate] on the east; and he measured a hundred cubits from gate to gate.
24
Then he led me toward the south, and behold, there was a gate toward the south; and he measured its side pillars and its porches according to those same measurements.
25
The gate and its porches had windows all around like those other windows; the length [was] fifty cubits and the width twenty-five cubits.
26
[There were] seven steps going up to it, and its porches [were] in front of them; and it had palm tree ornaments on its side pillars, one on each side.
27
The inner court had a gate toward the south; and he measured from gate to gate toward the south, a hundred cubits.
28
Then he brought me to the inner court by the south gate; and he measured the south gate according to those same measurements.
29
Its guardrooms also, its side pillars and its porches [were] according to those same measurements. And the gate and its porches had windows all around; it [was] fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide.
30
[There were] porches all around, twenty-five cubits long and five cubits wide.
31
Its porches [were] toward the outer court; and palm tree ornaments [were] on its side pillars, and its stairway [had] eight steps.
32
He brought me into the inner court toward the east. And he measured the gate according to those same measurements.
33
Its guardrooms also, its side pillars and its porches [were] according to those same measurements. And the gate and its porches had windows all around; it [was] fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide.
34
Its porches [were] toward the outer court; and palm tree ornaments [were] on its side pillars, on each side, and its stairway [had] eight steps.
35
Then he brought me to the north gate; and he measured [it] according to those same measurements,
36
[with] its guardrooms, its side pillars and its porches. And the gate had windows all around; the length [was] fifty cubits and the width twenty-five cubits.
37
Its side pillars [were] toward the outer court; and palm tree ornaments [were] on its side pillars on each side, and its stairway had eight steps.
38
A chamber with its doorway was by the side pillars at the gates; there they rinse the burnt offering.
39
In the porch of the gate [were] two tables on each side, on which to slaughter the burnt offering, the sin offering and the guilt offering.
40
On the outer side, as one went up to the gateway toward the north, [were] two tables; and on the other side of the porch of the gate [were] two tables.
41
Four tables [were] on each side next to the gate; [or], eight tables on which they slaughter [sacrifices].
42
For the burnt offering [there were] four tables of hewn stone, a cubit and a half long, a cubit and a half wide and one cubit high, on which they lay the instruments with which they slaughter the burnt offering and the sacrifice.
43
The double hooks, one handbreadth in length, were installed in the house all around; and on the tables [was] the flesh of the offering.
44
From the outside to the inner gate were chambers for the singers in the inner court, [one of] which was at the side of the north gate, with its front toward the south, and one at the side of the south gate facing toward the north.
45
He said to me, "This is the chamber which faces toward the south, [intended] for the priests who keep charge of the temple;
46
but the chamber which faces toward the north is for the priests who keep charge of the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, who from the sons of Levi come near to the LORD to minister to Him."
47
He measured the court, a [perfect] square, a hundred cubits long and a hundred cubits wide; and the altar was in front of the temple.
48
Then he brought me to the porch of the temple and measured [each] side pillar of the porch, five cubits on each side; and the width of the gate was three cubits on each side.
49
The length of the porch [was] twenty cubits and the width eleven cubits; and at the stairway by which it was ascended [were] columns belonging to the side pillars, one on each side.

Ezekiel chapter 41

1
Then he brought me to the nave and measured the side pillars; six cubits wide on each side [was] the width of the side pillar.
2
The width of the entrance [was] ten cubits and the sides of the entrance [were] five cubits on each side. And he measured the length of the nave, forty cubits, and the width, twenty cubits.
3
Then he went inside and measured each side pillar of the doorway, two cubits, and the doorway, six cubits [high]; and the width of the doorway, seven cubits.
4
He measured its length, twenty cubits, and the width, twenty cubits, before the nave; and he said to me, "This is the most holy [place]."
5
Then he measured the wall of the temple, six cubits; and the width of the side chambers, four cubits, all around about the house on every side.
6
The side chambers were in three stories, one above another, and thirty in each story; and the side chambers extended to the wall which [stood] on their inward side all around, that they might be fastened, and not be fastened into the wall of the temple [itself].
7
The side chambers surrounding the temple were wider at each successive story. Because the structure surrounding the temple went upward by stages on all sides of the temple, therefore the width of the temple [increased] as it went higher; and thus one went up from the lowest [story] to the highest by way of the second [story].
8
I saw also that the house had a raised platform all around; the foundations of the side chambers were a full rod of six long cubits [in height].
9
The thickness of the outer wall of the side chambers [was] five cubits. But the free space between the side chambers belonging to the temple
10
and the [outer] chambers [was] twenty cubits in width all around the temple on every side.
11
The doorways of the side chambers toward the free space [consisted of] one doorway toward the north and another doorway toward the south; and the width of the free space [was] five cubits all around.
12
The building that [was] in front of the separate area at the side toward the west [was] seventy cubits wide; and the wall of the building [was] five cubits thick all around, and its length [was] ninety cubits.
13
Then he measured the temple, a hundred cubits long; the separate area with the building and its walls [were] also a hundred cubits long.
14
Also the width of the front of the temple and [that of] the separate areas along the east [side totaled] a hundred cubits.
15
He measured the length of the building along the front of the separate area behind it, with a gallery on each side, a hundred cubits; [he] also [measured] the inner nave and the porches of the court.
16
The thresholds, the latticed windows and the galleries round about their three stories, opposite the threshold, were paneled with wood all around, and [from] the ground to the windows (but the windows were covered),
17
over the entrance, and to the inner house, and on the outside, and on all the wall all around inside and outside, by measurement.
18
It was carved with cherubim and palm trees; and a palm tree was between cherub and cherub, and every cherub had two faces,
19
a man's face toward the palm tree on one side and a young lion's face toward the palm tree on the other side; they were carved on all the house all around.
20
From the ground to above the entrance cherubim and palm trees were carved, as well as [on] the wall of the nave.
21
The doorposts of the nave were square; as for the front of the sanctuary, the appearance of one doorpost was like that of the other.
22
The altar [was] of wood, three cubits high and its length two cubits; its corners, its base and its sides [were] of wood. And he said to me, "This is the table that is before the LORD."
23
The nave and the sanctuary each had a double door.
24
Each of the doors had two leaves, two swinging leaves; two [leaves] for one door and two leaves for the other.
25
Also there were carved on them, on the doors of the nave, cherubim and palm trees like those carved on the walls; and [there was] a threshold of wood on the front of the porch outside.
26
[There were] latticed windows and palm trees on one side and on the other, on the sides of the porch; thus [were] the side chambers of the house and the thresholds.
