Ezekiel 41

The Inner Temple

1Then 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.
2The 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.
3Then 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.
4He 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.”

5Then 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.
6 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.
7The 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.
8I 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
10and the outer ae  chambers was twenty cubits in width all around the temple on every side. 11The
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.

12The 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.

13Then 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. 14Also the width of the front of the temple and that of the separate
Lit area
areas along the east side totaled a hundred cubits.

15He 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.
16The 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),
17over the entrance, and to the inner house, and on the outside, and on all the wall all around inside and outside, by measurement. 18It 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,
19a 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.
20From 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.

21The 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. 22The 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.”
23The bs  nave and the bt  sanctuary each had a double bu  door. 24Each of the doors had two leaves, two
Or turning
bw  swinging leaves; two leaves for one door and two leaves for the other.
25Also 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.
26There 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
