Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:1 - Then he led me out into the inner court, toward the north, and he brought me to the chambers which were opposite the temple yard and opposite the building on the north.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:2 - The length of the building which was on the north side was a hundred cubits, and the breadth fifty cubits.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:3 - Adjoining the twenty cubits which belonged to the inner court, and facing the pavement which belonged to the outer court, was gallery against gallery in three stories.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:4 - And before the chambers was a passage inward, ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long, and their doors were on the north.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:5 - Now the upper chambers were narrower, for the galleries took more away from them than from the lower and middle chambers in the building.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:6 - For they were in three stories, and they had no pillars like the pillars of the outer court; hence the upper chambers were set back from the ground more than the lower and the middle ones.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:7 - And there was a wall outside parallel to the chambers, toward the outer court, opposite the chambers, fifty cubits long.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:8 - For the chambers on the outer court were fifty cubits long, while those opposite the temple were a hundred cubits long.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:9 - Below these chambers was an entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:10 - where the outside wall begins. On the south also, opposite the yard and opposite the building, there were chambers

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:11 - with a passage in front of them; they were similar to the chambers on the north, of the same length and breadth, with the same exits and arrangements and doors.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:12 - And below the south chambers was an entrance on the east side, where one enters the passage, and opposite them was a dividing wall.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:13 - Then he said to me, "The north chambers and the south chambers opposite the yard are the holy chambers, where the priests who approach the LORD shall eat the most holy offerings; there they shall put the most holy offerings--the cereal offering, the sin offering, and the guilt offering, for the place is holy.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:14 - When the priests enter the holy place, they shall not go out of it into the outer court without laying there the garments in which they minister, for these are holy; they shall put on other garments before they go near to that which is for the people."

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:15 - Now when he had finished measuring the interior of the temple area, he led me out by the gate which faced east, and measured the temple area round about.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:16 - He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred cubits by the measuring reed.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:17 - Then he turned and measured the north side, five hundred cubits by the measuring reed.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:18 - Then he turned and measured the south side, five hundred cubits by the measuring reed.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 42:19 - Then he turned to the west side and measured, five hundred cubits by the measuring reed.
