Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:2 - The doorway was 17½ feet[fn] wide, and the walls on each side of it were 8¾ feet[fn] long. The sanctuary itself was 70 feet long and 35 feet wide.[fn]
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:3 - Then he went beyond the sanctuary into the inner room. He measured the walls on either side of its entrance, and they were 3½ feet[fn] thick. The entrance was 10½ feet wide, and the walls on each side of the entrance were 12¼ feet[fn] long.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:11 - Two doors opened from the side rooms into the terrace yard, which was 8¾ feet wide. One door faced north and the other south.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:12 - A large building stood on the west, facing the Temple courtyard. It was 122½ feet wide and 157½ feet long, and its walls were 8¾ feet[fn] thick.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:13 - Then the man measured the Temple, and it was 175 feet[fn] long. The courtyard around the building, including its walls, was an additional 175 feet in length.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:14 - The inner courtyard to the east of the Temple was also 175 feet wide.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:15 - The building to the west, including its two walls, was also 175 feet wide.
The sanctuary, the inner room, and the entry room of the Temple
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:16 - were all paneled with wood, as were the frames of the recessed windows. The inner walls of the Temple were paneled with wood above and below the windows.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:17 - The space above the door leading into the inner room, and its walls inside and out, were also paneled.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:18 - All the walls were decorated with carvings of cherubim, each with two faces, and there was a carving of a palm tree between each of the cherubim.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:19 - One face—that of a man—looked toward the palm tree on one side. The other face—that of a young lion—looked toward the palm tree on the other side. The figures were carved all along the inside of the Temple,
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:20 - from the floor to the top of the walls, including the outer wall of the sanctuary.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:21 - There were square columns at the entrance to the sanctuary, and the ones at the entrance of the Most Holy Place were similar.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:22 - There was an altar made of wood, 5¼ feet high and 3½ feet across.[fn] Its corners, base, and sides were all made of wood. “This,” the man told me, “is the table that stands in the LORD’s presence.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:23 - Both the sanctuary and the Most Holy Place had double doorways,
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:24 - each with two swinging doors.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 41:26 - On both sides of the entry room were recessed windows decorated with carved palm trees. The side rooms along the outside wall also had roofs.
