1Then he brought me to the outer sanctuary, and measured the jambs; the jambs were 10 1/2 feet wide on each side.1Next he brought me into the great hall and measured the jambs; on each side the width of the jamb was 10 1/2 feet.
2The width of the entrance was 17 1/2 feet, and the sides of the entrance were 8 3/4 feet on each side. He measured the length of the outer sanctuary as 70 feet, and its width as 35 feet. 2The width of the entrance was 17 1/2 feet, and the side walls of the entrance were 8 3/4 feet wide on each side. He also measured the length of the great hall, 70 feet, and the width, 35 feet.
3Then he went into the inner sanctuary and measured the jambs of the entrance as 3 1/2 feet, the entrance as 10 1/2 feet, and the width of the entrance as 12 feet3He went inside the next room and measured the jambs at the entrance; they were 3 1/2 feet wide. The entrance was 10 1/2 feet wide, and the width of the entrance's side walls on each side was 12 1/4 feet.
4Then he measured its length as 35 feet, and its width as 35 feet, before the outer sanctuary. He said to me, "This is the most holy place." 4He then measured the length of the room adjacent to the great hall, 35 feet, and the width, 35 feet. And he said to me, "This is the most holy place."
5Then he measured the wall of the temple as 10 1/2 feet, and the width of the side chambers as 7 feet, all around the temple.5Then he measured the wall of the temple; it was 10 1/2 feet thick. The width of the side rooms all around the temple was 7 feet.
6The side chambers were in three stories, one above the other, thirty in each story. There were offsets in the wall all around to serve as supports for the side chambers, so that the supports were not in the wall of the temple.6The side rooms were arranged one above another in three stories of thirty rooms each. There were ledges on the wall of the temple all around to serve as supports for the side rooms, so that the supports would not be in the temple wall itself.
7The side chambers surrounding the temple were wider at each successive story; for the structure surrounding the temple went up story by story all around the temple. For this reason the width of the temple increased as it went up, and one went up from the lowest story to the highest by the way of the middle story. 7The side rooms surrounding the temple widened at each successive story, for the structure surrounding the temple went up by stages. This was the reason for the temple's broadness as it rose. And so, one would go up from the lowest story to the highest by means of the middle one.
8I saw that the temple had a raised platform all around; the foundations of the side chambers were a full measuring stick of 10 1/2 feet high.8I saw that the temple had a raised platform surrounding it; this foundation for the side rooms was 10 1/2 feet high.
9The width of the outer wall of the side chambers was 8 3/4 feet, and the open area between the side chambers of the temple9The thickness of the outer wall of the side rooms was 8 3/4 feet. The free space between the side rooms of the temple
10and the chambers of the court was 35 feet in width all around the temple on every side.10and the outer chambers was 35 feet wide all around the temple.
11There were entrances from the side chambers toward the open area, one entrance toward the north, and another entrance toward the south; the width of the open area was 8 3/4 feet all around. 11The side rooms opened into the free space, one entrance toward the north and another to the south. The area of free space was 8 3/4 feet wide all around.
12The building that was facing the temple courtyard at the west side was 122 1/2 feet wide; the wall of the building was 8 3/4 feet all around, and its length 157 1/2 feet. 12Now the building that faced the temple yard toward the west was 122 1/2 feet wide. The wall of the building was 8 3/4 feet thick on all sides, and the building's length was 157 1/2 feet.
13Then he measured the temple as 175 feet long, the courtyard of the temple and the building and its walls as 175 feet long,13Then the man measured the temple; it was 175 feet long. In addition, the temple yard and the building, including its walls, were 175 feet long.
14and also the width of the front of the temple and the courtyard on the east as 175 feet. 14The width of the front of the temple along with the temple yard to the east was 175 feet.
15Then he measured the length of the building facing the courtyard at the rear of the temple, with its galleries on either side as 175 feet. The interior of the outer sanctuary and the porch of the court,15Next he measured the length of the building facing the temple yard to the west, with its galleries on each side; it was 175 feet. The interior of the great hall and the porticoes of the court--
16as well as the thresholds, narrow windows and galleries all around on three sides facing the threshold were paneled with wood all around, from the ground up to the windows (now the windows were covered),16the thresholds, the beveled windows, and the balconies all around with their three levels opposite the threshold--were overlaid with wood on all sides. They were paneled from the ground to the windows (but the windows were covered),
17to the space above the entrance, to the inner room, and on the outside, and on all the walls in the inner room and outside, by measurement.17reaching to the top of the entrance, and as far as the inner temple and on the outside. On every wall all around, on the inside and outside, was a pattern
18It was made with cherubim and decorative palm trees, with a palm tree between each cherub. Each cherub had two faces:18carved with cherubim and palm trees. There was a palm tree between each pair of cherubim. Each cherub had two faces:
19a human face toward the palm tree on one side and a lion's face toward the palm tree on the other side. They were carved on the whole temple all around;19a human face turned toward the palm tree on one side, and a lion's face turned toward it on the other. They were carved throughout the temple on all sides.
20from the ground to the area above the entrance, cherubim and decorative palm trees were carved on the wall of the outer sanctuary.20Cherubim and palm trees were carved from the ground to the top of the entrance and on the wall of the great hall.
21The doorposts of the outer sanctuary were square. In front of the sanctuary one doorpost looked just like the other.21The doorposts of the great hall were square, and the front of the sanctuary had the same appearance.
22The altar was of wood, 5 feet high, with its length 3 1/2 feet; its corners, its length, and its walls were of wood. He said to me, "This is the table that is before the LORD."22The altar was made of wood, 5 1/4 feet high and 3 1/2 feet long. It had corners, and its length and sides were of wood. The man told me, "This is the table that stands before the LORD."
23The outer sanctuary and the inner sanctuary each had a double door.23The great hall and the sanctuary each had a double door,
24Each of the doors had two leaves, two swinging leaves; two leaves for one door and two leaves for the other.24and each of the doors had two swinging panels. There were two panels for one door and two for the other.
25On the doors of the outer sanctuary were carved cherubim and palm trees, like those carved on the walls, and there was a canopy of wood on the front of the outside porch.25Cherubim and palm trees were carved on the doors of the great hall like those carved on the walls. There was a wooden canopy outside, in front of the portico.
26There were narrow windows and decorative palm trees on either side of the side walls of the porch; this is what the side chambers of the temple and the canopies were like. 26There were beveled windows and palm trees on both sides, on the side walls of the portico, the side rooms of the temple, and the canopies.
