Chambers of the Temple1 Then he a brought me out into the b outer court, the way c toward the north; and he brought me to the d chamber which was opposite the e separate area and opposite the f building toward the north. 2 Along the length, which was a g hundred cubits, was the north door; the width was fifty cubits. 3 Opposite the h twenty cubits which belonged to the inner court, and opposite the i pavement which belonged to the outer court, was ▼
▼ Or passageway, k gallery corresponding to ▼
▼ Or passagewaygallery in three stories. 4 Before the m chambers was an inner walk ten cubits wide, a way of one hundred cubits; and their openings were on the north. 5 Now the upper chambers were ▼
▼ Lit shortersmaller because the ▼
▼ Or passageways, p galleries took more space away from them than from the lower and middle ones in the building. 6 For they were in q three stories and had no pillars like the pillars of the courts; therefore the upper chambers were ▼
▼ Or reducedset back from the ground upward, more than the lower and middle ones. 7 As for the s outer wall by the side of the chambers, toward the outer court facing the chambers, its length was fifty cubits. 8 For the length of the chambers which were in the outer court was fifty cubits; and behold, the length of those facing the temple was a t hundred cubits. 9 Below these chambers was the u entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court. 10 In the ▼
▼ Lit widththickness of the w wall of the court toward the east, facing the x separate area and facing the building, there were y chambers. 11 The z way in front of them was like the appearance of the chambers which were on the north, according to their length so was their width, and all their exits were both according to their arrangements and openings. 12 Corresponding to the openings of the chambers which were toward the south was an opening at the head of the way, the way in front of the aa wall toward the east, as one enters them. 13 Then he said to me, “The north chambers and the south chambers, which are opposite the ab separate area, they are the ac holy chambers where the priests who are ad near to the Lord shall eat the ae most holy things. There they shall lay the most holy things, the grain offering, the sin offering and the guilt offering; for the place is holy. 14 “When the priests enter, then they shall not go out into the outer court from the sanctuary ▼
▼ Lit but there they shall laywithout ag laying there their ah garments in which they minister, for they are holy. They shall put on other garments; then they shall approach that which is for the people.” 15 Now when he had finished measuring the inner house, he brought me out by the way of the ai gate which faced toward the east and measured it all around. 16 He measured on the east side with the measuring reed five hundred reeds by the aj measuring reed. 17 He measured on the north side five hundred reeds by the measuring reed. 18 On the south side he measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 19 He turned to the west side and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 20 He measured it ▼
▼ Lit toward the four windson the four sides; it had a al wall all around, the am length five hundred and the an width five hundred, to ao divide between the holy and the profane.
