Ezekiel 42
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And he brings me forth to the outer court, the way northward, and he brings me into the chamber that [is] opposite the separate place, and that [is] opposite the building at the north. 2At the front of the length [is] one hundred cubits [at] the north opening, and the breadth—fifty cubits. 3Opposite the twenty [cubits] that are of the inner court, and opposite the pavement that [is] of the outer court, [is] gallery [with] face toward gallery, in the three [stories]. 4And at the front of the chambers [is] a walk of ten cubits in breadth to the inner part, a way of one cubit, and their openings [are] at the north. 5And the upper chambers [are] short, for the galleries contain more than these, than the lower, and than the middle one, of the building; 6for they [are] threefold, and they have no pillars as the pillars of the court, therefore it has been kept back—more than the lower and than the middle one—from the ground. 7As for the wall that [is] at the outside, alongside the chambers, the way of the outer-court at the front of the chambers, its length [is] fifty cubits; 8for the length of the chambers that [are] in the outer court [is] fifty cubits, and of those on the front of the temple—one hundred cubits. 9And under these chambers [is] the entrance from the east, in one’s going into them from the outer court.

10In the breadth of the wall of the court eastward, to the front of the separate place, and to the front of the building, [are] chambers. 11And the way before them [is] as the appearance of the chambers that [are] northward, according to their length so [is] their breadth, and all their outlets, and according to their fashions, and according to their openings. 12And according to the openings of the chambers that [are] southward [is] an opening at the head of the way, the way directly in the front of the wall eastward in entering them.

13And he says to me, “The north chambers, the south chambers, that [are] at the front of the separate place, they [are] holy chambers, where the priests (who [are] near to YHWH) eat the most holy things, there they place the most holy things, and the present, and the sin-offering, and the guilt-offering, for the place [is] holy. 14In the priests’ going in, they do not come out from the sanctuary to the outer court, and there they place their garments with which they minister, for they [are] holy, and have put on other garments, and have drawn near to that which [is] for the people.”

15And he has finished the measurements of the inner house, and has brought me forth the way of the gate whose front [is] eastward, and he has measured it all around. 16He has measured the east side with the measuring-reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring-reed all around. 17He has measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed all around. 18The south side he has measured, five hundred reeds, with the measuring-reed. 19He has turned around to the west side, he has measured five hundred reeds with the measuring-reed. 20At the four sides he has measured it; it had a wall all around, the length—five hundred, and the breadth—five hundred, to separate between the holy and the profane place.
