NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
1In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was struck down, on this very day, the hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me there.1In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was struck down, on that very day, the hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me to the city.
2By means of divine visions he brought me to the land of Israel and placed me on a very high mountain, and on it was a structure like a city, to the south.2In visions of God he brought me to the land of Israel, and set me down on a very high mountain, on which was a structure like a city to the south.
3When he brought me there, I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze, with a linen cord and a measuring stick in his hand. He was standing in the gateway.3When he brought me there, behold, there was a man whose appearance was like bronze, with a linen cord and a measuring reed in his hand. And he was standing in the gateway.
4The man said to me, "Son of man, watch closely, listen carefully, and pay attention to everything I show you, for you have been brought here so that I can show it to you. Tell the house of Israel everything you see." 4And the man said to me, “Son of man, look with your eyes, and hear with your ears, and set your heart upon all that I shall show you, for you were brought here in order that I might show it to you. Declare all that you see to the house of Israel.”
5I saw a wall all around the outside of the temple. In the man's hand was a measuring stick 10 1/2 feet long. He measured the thickness of the wall as 10 1/2 feet, and its height as 10 1/2 feet.5And behold, there was a wall all around the outside of the temple area, and the length of the measuring reed in the man’s hand was six long cubits, each being a cubit and a handbreadth in length. So he measured the thickness of the wall, one reed; and the height, one reed.
6Then he went to the gate facing east. He climbed its steps and measured the threshold of the gate as 10 1/2 feet deep.6Then he went into the gateway facing east, going up its steps, and measured the threshold of the gate, one reed deep.
7The alcoves were 10 1/2 feet long and 10 1/2 feet wide; between the alcoves were 8 3/4 feet. The threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate facing inward was 10 1/2 feet.7And the side rooms, one reed long and one reed broad; and the space between the side rooms, five cubits; and the threshold of the gate by the vestibule of the gate at the inner end, one reed.
8Then he measured the porch of the gate facing inward as 10 1/2 feet.8Then he measured the vestibule of the gateway, on the inside, one reed.
9He measured the porch of the gate as 14 feet, and its jambs as 3 1/2 feet; the porch of the gate faced inward.9Then he measured the vestibule of the gateway, eight cubits; and its jambs, two cubits; and the vestibule of the gate was at the inner end.
10There were three alcoves on each side of the east gate; the three had the same measurement, and the jambs on either side had the same measurement.10And there were three side rooms on either side of the east gate. The three were of the same size, and the jambs on either side were of the same size.
11He measured the width of the entrance of the gateway as 17 1/2 feet, and the length of the gateway as 22 3/4 feet.11Then he measured the width of the opening of the gateway, ten cubits; and the length of the gateway, thirteen cubits.
12There was a barrier in front of the alcoves, 1 3/4 feet on either side; the alcoves were 10 1/2 feet on either side.12There was a barrier before the side rooms, one cubit on either side. And the side rooms were six cubits on either side.
13He measured the gateway from the roof of one alcove to the roof of the other, a width of 43 3/4 feet from one entrance to the opposite one.13Then he measured the gate from the ceiling of the one side room to the ceiling of the other, a breadth of twenty-five cubits; the openings faced each other.
14He measured the porch at 105 feet high; the gateway went all around to the jamb of the courtyard.14He measured also the vestibule, sixty cubits. And around the vestibule of the gateway was the court.
15From the front of the entrance gate to the porch of the inner gate was 87 1/2 feet.15From the front of the gate at the entrance to the front of the inner vestibule of the gate was fifty cubits.
16There were closed windows toward the alcoves and toward their jambs within the gate all around, and likewise for the porches. There were windows all around the inside, and on each jamb were decorative palm trees. 16And the gateway had windows all around, narrowing inwards toward the side rooms and toward their jambs, and likewise the vestibule had windows all around inside, and on the jambs were palm trees.
17Then he brought me to the outer court. I saw chambers there, and a pavement made for the court all around; thirty chambers faced the pavement.17Then he brought me into the outer court. And behold, there were chambers and a pavement, all around the court. Thirty chambers faced the pavement.
18The pavement was beside the gates, corresponding to the length of the gates; this was the lower pavement.18And the pavement ran along the side of the gates, corresponding to the length of the gates. This was the lower pavement.
19Then he measured the width from before the lower gate to the front of the exterior of the inner court as 175 feet on the east and on the north. 19Then he measured the distance from the inner front of the lower gate to the outer front of the inner court, a hundred cubits on the east side and on the north side.
20He measured the length and width of the gate of the outer court which faces north.20As for the gate that faced toward the north, belonging to the outer court, he measured its length and its breadth.

38There was a chamber with its door by the porch of the gate; there they washed the burnt offering.38There was a chamber with its door in the vestibule of the gate, where the burnt offering was to be washed.
39In the porch of the gate were two tables on either side on which to slaughter the burnt offering, the sin offering, and the guilt offering.39And in the vestibule of the gate were two tables on either side, on which the burnt offering and the sin offering and the guilt offering were to be slaughtered.
40On the outside of the porch as one goes up at the entrance of the north gate were two tables, and on the other side of the porch of the gate were two tables.40And off to the side, on the outside as one goes up to the entrance of the north gate, were two tables; and off to the other side of the vestibule of the gate were two tables.
41Four tables were on each side of the gate, eight tables on which the sacrifices were to be slaughtered.41Four tables were on either side of the gate, eight tables, on which to slaughter.
42The four tables for the burnt offering were of carved stone, 32 inches long, 32 inches wide, and 21 inches high. They would put the instruments which they used to slaughter the burnt offering and the sacrifice on them.42And there were four tables of hewn stone for the burnt offering, a cubit and a half long, and a cubit and a half broad, and one cubit high, on which the instruments were to be laid with which the burnt offerings and the sacrifices were slaughtered.

45He said to me, "This chamber which faces south is for the priests who keep charge of the temple,45And he said to me, “This chamber that faces south is for the priests who have charge of the temple,
46and the chamber which faces north is for the priests who keep charge of the altar. These are the descendants of Zadok, from the descendants of Levi, who may approach the LORD to minister to him."46and the chamber that faces north is for the priests who have charge of the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, who alone among the sons of Levi may come near to the LORD to minister to him.”
