Ezekiel 42

1Then he brought me forth into the outer court, the way toward the north: and he brought me into the chamber that was opposite the separate place, and which was before the building toward the north. 2Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was fifty cubits. 3Opposite the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and opposite the pavement which was for the outer court, was gallery against gallery in three stories . 4And before the chambers was a walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north. 5Now the upper chambers were narrower: for the galleries were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middle ones of the building.
were higher...: or, did eat of these
than the lower...: or, and the building consisted of the lower and the middlemost
6For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the pillars of the courts: therefore the upper chambers were set back more than the lower and the middle ones from the ground. 7And the wall that was outside by the side of the chambers, toward the outer court on the forepart of the chambers, the length of it was fifty cubits. 8For the length of the chambers that were in the outer court was fifty cubits: and, lo, before the temple were an hundred cubits. 9And from under these chambers was the entrance on the east side, as one goeth into them from the outer court.
from under: or, from the place
the entry: or, he that brought me
as...: or, as he came
10The chambers were in the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, opposite the separate place, and opposite the building. 11And 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 exits were both according to their fashions, and according to their doors. 12And 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 before the wall toward the east, as one entereth into them. 13Then said he to me, The north chambers and the south chambers, which are before the separate place, they are holy chambers, where the priests that approach to the LORD shall eat the most holy things: there shall they lay the most holy things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering; for the place is holy. 14When the priests enter in it, then shall they 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 shall approach to those things which are for the people.

15Now when he had finished measuring the inner house, he brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it all around. 16He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed on every side.
side: Heb. wind
17He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed on every side. 18He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed. 19He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 20He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall all around, five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a separation between the sanctuary and the common place.
