Ezekiel 42 :: New Living Translation (NLT)

Tools specific to Eze 42:1

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:1

Then the man led me out of the Temple courtyard by way of the north gateway. We entered the outer courtyard and came to a group of rooms against the north wall of the inner courtyard.

Tools specific to Eze 42:2

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:2

This structure, whose entrance opened toward the north, was 175 feet[fn] long and 87½ feet[fn] wide.

Tools specific to Eze 42:3

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:3

One block of rooms overlooked the 35-foot[fn] width of the inner courtyard. Another block of rooms looked out onto the pavement of the outer courtyard. The two blocks were built three levels high and stood across from each other.

Tools specific to Eze 42:4

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:4

Between the two blocks of rooms ran a walkway 17½ feet[fn] wide. It extended the entire 175 feet of the complex,[fn] and all the doors faced north.

Tools specific to Eze 42:5

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:5

Each of the two upper levels of rooms was narrower than the one beneath it because the upper levels had to allow space for walkways in front of them.

Tools specific to Eze 42:6

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:6

Since there were three levels and they did not have supporting columns as in the courtyards, each of the upper levels was set back from the level beneath it.

Tools specific to Eze 42:7

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:7

There was an outer wall that separated the rooms from the outer courtyard; it was 87½ feet long.

Tools specific to Eze 42:8

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:8

This wall added length to the outer block of rooms, which extended for only 87½ feet, while the inner block—the rooms toward the Temple—extended for 175 feet.

Tools specific to Eze 42:9

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:9

There was an eastern entrance from the outer courtyard to these rooms.

Tools specific to Eze 42:10

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:10

On the south[fn] side of the Temple there were two blocks of rooms just south of the inner courtyard between the Temple and the outer courtyard. These rooms were arranged just like the rooms on the north.

Tools specific to Eze 42:11

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:11

There was a walkway between the two blocks of rooms just like the complex on the north side of the Temple. This complex of rooms was the same length and width as the other one, and it had the same entrances and doors. The dimensions of each were identical.

Tools specific to Eze 42:12

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:12

So there was an entrance in the wall facing the doors of the inner block of rooms, and another on the east at the end of the interior walkway.

Tools specific to Eze 42:13

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:13

Then the man told me, “These rooms that overlook the Temple from the north and south are holy. Here the priests who offer sacrifices to the LORD will eat the most holy offerings. And because these rooms are holy, they will be used to store the sacred offerings—the grain offerings, sin offerings, and guilt offerings.

Tools specific to Eze 42:14

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:14

When the priests leave the sanctuary, they must not go directly to the outer courtyard. They must first take off the clothes they wore while ministering, because these clothes are holy. They must put on other clothes before entering the parts of the building complex open to the public.”

Tools specific to Eze 42:15

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:15

When the man had finished measuring the inside of the Temple area, he led me out through the east gateway to measure the entire perimeter.

Tools specific to Eze 42:16

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:16

He measured the east side with his measuring rod, and it was 875 feet long.[fn]

Tools specific to Eze 42:17

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:17

Then he measured the north side, and it was also 875 feet.

Tools specific to Eze 42:18

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:18

The south side was also 875 feet,

Tools specific to Eze 42:19

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:19

and the west side was also 875 feet.

Tools specific to Eze 42:20

Unchecked Copy Box Eze 42:20

So the area was 875 feet on each side with a wall all around it to separate what was holy from what was common.
