Ezekiel 41
King James 2000

1Afterward he brought me to the temple, and measured the posts, six cubits wide on the one side, and six cubits wide on the other side, which was the width of the tabernacle.

2And the width of the door was ten cubits; and the sides of the door were five cubits on the one side, and five cubits on the other side: and he measured its length, forty cubits: and the width, twenty cubits.

3Then went he inside, and measured the post of the door, two cubits; and the door, six cubits; and the width of the door, seven cubits.

4So he measured its length, twenty cubits; and its width, twenty cubits, beyond the temple: and he said unto me, This is the most holy place.

5After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the width of every side chamber, four cubits, round about the house on every side.

6And the side chambers were three stories, one over another, and thirty in each story; and they entered into the wall which was of the house for the side chambers round about, that they might have support, but they were not supported by the wall of the house.

7And the side chambers became wider as they ascended from story to story, corresponding to the enlargement of the offset from story to story round about the house; on the side of the house a stairway led upward, and thus one went up from the lowest story to the top story through the middle story.

8I saw also an elevation of the house round about: the foundations of the side chambers were a full rod of six great cubits.

9The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber on the outside, was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side chambers that were inside.

10And between the chambers was a width of twenty cubits round about the house on every side.

11And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and the width of the place that was left was five cubits round about.

12Now the building that was facing the separate courtyard at the end toward the west was seventy cubits wide; and the wall of the building was five cubits thick round about, and its length ninety cubits.

13So he measured the house, a hundred cubits long; and the separate courtyard, and the building, with its walls, a hundred cubits long;

14Also the width of the face of the house, and of the separate courtyard toward the east, a hundred cubits.

15And he measured the length of the building opposite the separate courtyard which was behind it, and its galleries on the one side and on the other side, a hundred cubits, with the inner temple, and the porches of the court;

16The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round about on their three stories, opposite the door, paneled with wood round about, from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were covered;

17To that above the door, even unto the inner house, and outside, and by all the wall round about within and without, by measure.

18And it was made with cherubim and palm trees, so that a palm tree was between a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had two faces;

19So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the other side: it was made through all the house round about.

20From the ground to above the door were cherubim and palm trees made, and on the wall of the temple.

21The posts of the temple were square, and also the face of the sanctuary; the appearance of the one like the appearance of the other.

22The altar of wood was three cubits high, and its length two cubits; and its corners, and its length, and its walls, were of wood: and he said unto me, This is the table that is before the LORD.

23And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.

24And the doors had two leaves apiece, two swinging leaves; two leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the other door.

25And there were carved on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubim and palm trees, as were carved upon the walls; and there were thick planks upon the face of the porch outside.

26And there were narrow windows and palm trees on the one side and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the side chambers of the house, and thick planks.
