Ezekiel 41

The Inner Temple

Then he a brought me to the
I.e. the main inner hall
c nave and measured the d side pillars; six cubits wide on each side was the width of the
Lit tent
side pillar.
The width of the entrance was ten cubits and the
Lit shoulders
sides of the entrance were five cubits on each side. And he measured
Lit its length,
the length of the nave, h forty cubits, and the width i twenty cubits.
Then he went
I.e. of the inner sanctuary
k inside and measured each l side pillar of the doorway, two cubits, and the doorway, six cubits high; and the width of the doorway, seven cubits.
He measured its length m twenty cubits, and the width, twenty cubits, before the n nave; and he said to me, “This is the o most holy place.”

Then he measured the wall of the
Lit house, and so throughout the ch
temple, six cubits; and the width of the q side chambers, four cubits, all around about the house on every side.
r The side chambers were in three stories,
Lit chamber upon chamber
one above another, and
Lit thirty times
thirty in each story; and
Lit they were coming
the side chambers v extended to the wall which stood on
Lit the inside of the side chambers
their inward side all around, that they might be fastened, and not be fastened into the wall of the temple itself.
The side chambers surrounding the temple were wider at each successive story. Because the x 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
Lit middle
second story.
I saw also that the house had a raised
Lit height
platform all around; the foundations of the side chambers were a full rod of aa six
Or to the joint
long cubits in height.
Lit width
thickness of the outer wall of the side chambers was five cubits. But the ad free space between the side chambers belonging to the temple
10 and the outer ae chambers was twenty cubits in width all around the temple on every side. 11 The
Lit doorway
doorways of the
Lit side chamber
side chambers toward the ah free space consisted of one doorway toward the north and another doorway toward the south; and the width of the ai free space was five cubits all around.

12 The aj building that was in front of the ak separate area at the side toward the west was seventy cubits wide; and the wall of the building was five cubits
Lit wide
thick all around, and its length was ninety cubits.

13 Then he measured the temple, a am hundred cubits long; the an separate area with the ao building and its walls were also a ap hundred cubits long. 14 Also the width of the front of the temple and that of the separate
Lit area
areas along the east side totaled a hundred cubits.

15 He measured the length of the ar building
Lit to
along the front of the at separate area behind it, with a
Or passageway
av gallery on each side, a hundred cubits; he also measured the inner nave and the porches of the court.
16 The aw thresholds, the
Or framed
ay latticed windows and the
Or passageways
ba galleries round about their bb three stories, opposite the threshold, were bc 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
Lit made
carved with be cherubim and bf palm trees; and a palm tree was between cherub and cherub, and every cherub had two faces,
19 a bg man’s face toward the palm tree on one side and a young bh lion’s face toward the palm tree on the other side; they were
Lit made
carved on all the house all around.
20 From the ground to above the entrance bj cherubim and bk palm trees were
Lit made
carved, as well as on the wall of the nave.

21 The bm doorposts of the bn nave were square; as for the front of the sanctuary, the appearance of one doorpost was like that of the other. 22 The bo altar was of wood, three cubits high and its length two cubits; its corners, its
Lit length
base and its
Lit walls
sides were of wood. And he said to me, “This is the br table that is before the  Lord.”
23 The bs nave and the bt sanctuary each had a double bu door. 24 Each of the doors had two leaves, two
Or turning
bw swinging leaves; two leaves for one door and two leaves for the other.
25 Also there were
Lit made
carved on them, on the doors of the nave, by cherubim and bz palm trees like those
Lit made
carved on the walls; and there was a
Or canopy of wood over
cc threshold of wood on the front of the porch outside.
26 There were
Or framed
ce latticed windows and cf palm trees on one side and on the other, on the sides of the cg porch; thus were the ch side chambers of the house and the
Or canopies
