Ezequiel 42

1 Then he brought me forth into the outer court, the way toward the north; and he brought me into the chamber that [was] over against the space which [was] in front of the building toward the north.

2 In front of the north door the length [was] one hundred cubits, and the breadth [was] fifty cubits.

3 Over against the twenty [cubits] which [were] in the inner court, and over against the pavement which [was] in the outer court, [were] the chambers in three [stories].

4 And in front of the chambers [was] a walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north.

5 Now the upper chambers [were] shorter; for the galleries took away from the others, from the lower ones and from the middle ones.

6 For they [were] in three [stories], but did not have pillars as the pillars of the courts; therefore they were narrower than the lowest and the middlemost from the ground.

7 And the wall that [was] without over against the chambers, toward the outer court in front of the chambers, [was] fifty cubits long.

8 For the length of the chambers that [were] in the outer court [was] fifty cubits; and before the front of the temple [were] one hundred cubits.

9 And under these chambers [was] the entry [to the temple] on the east side, to enter in to it from the outer court.

10 All along the wall of the court toward the east, over against the separate place, and in front of the building [were] chambers.

11 And the way before them [was] like the appearance of the chambers which [were] toward the north, as long as they, [and] as broad as they; and all their goings out [were] both according to their fashions, and according to their doors.

12 And according to the doors of the chambers that [were] toward the south [was] a door in the head of the way, [even] the way directly in front of the wall toward the east, as one enters into them.

13 Then he said unto me, The north chambers [and] the south chambers, which [are] before the separate place, they [are] holy chambers, where the priests that approach unto the LORD shall eat the holy offerings; there they shall lay the holy offerings, and the present, and [that which was offered as] sin, and as guilt; for the place [is] holy.

14 When the priests enter therein, then they shall not go out of the holy [place] into the outer court, but there they shall lay their garments in which they minister; for they [are] holy; and shall put on other garments, and in this manner shall approach unto that which [is] of the people.

15 Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me forth by the way of the gate facing toward the east and measured it round about.

16 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed round about.

17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed round about.

18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.

19 He turned about to the west side, [and] measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.

20 He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about, five hundred [reeds] long, and five hundred broad, to make a separation between the sanctuary and the profane place.:
