NET BibleInternational Standard Version
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 to the Temple and measured its door jambs at six cubits wide on each side of the structure.
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 entrance was ten cubits wide and its door jambs were five cubits wide on each side. He measured the length of the nave at 40 cubits and its width at 20 cubits.
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 feet3Then he went inside and measured the door jambs at two cubits wide and the doorway at six cubits high. The doorway was seven cubits wide.
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 measured its length at 20 cubits, its width at 20 cubits in front of the structure, and then he told me, "This is the most holy area."
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.5Next, he measured the Temple walls at six cubits high and the width of the side chambers at four cubits around all four sides of the Temple.
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 chambers consisted of three stories, each above the other, with 30 chambers in each story. The side chambers extended out from the wall that faced the inside of the chambers where the chambers were fastened together, but the chamber walls were not fastened directly into the Temple walls themselves.
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 chambers surrounding the Temple were wider at each successive story, because the surrounding structure ascended by proportional increments as it rose, ascending to the highest story by going up successively from the lowest.
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 observed a raised platform that surrounded the Temple, and the foundations of the side chambers were a full six cubits deep.
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 outer wall of the side chambers was five cubits thick, and there was an empty space between the Temple's side chambers
10and the chambers of the court was 35 feet in width all around the temple on every side.10and its outer chambers 20 cubits in width, surrounding the Temple on each side.
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 chamber doorway facing the free space contained a single north-facing doorway and a second south-facing doorway. The width of the free space was five cubits all around the perimeter.
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. 12The building that faced the west side of the courtyard was 70 cubits wide, and the building's wall was five cubits thick all around. It was 90 cubits long.
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 he measured the Temple. It was 100 cubits long, and the courtyard, its building, and its walls were 100 cubits long.
14and also the width of the front of the temple and the courtyard on the east as 175 feet. 14The front of the Temple and its east-facing courtyard were each 100 cubits long.
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 100 cubits as the length of the structure toward the front of the courtyard that stood behind it, where it housed a gallery on each side of it. Then he measured the Temple and the inner porticos of the courtyard,
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 shielded windows, and the surrounding three-storied galleries that stood opposite. From the ground to the shielded windows, they were paneled with wood all around,
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.17including up to the doorway, up to the Temple (both within and without) and all around both sides of the inner wall, according to his measurement.
18It was made with cherubim and decorative palm trees, with a palm tree between each cherub. Each cherub had two faces:18There were carved cherubim and palm trees, alternating with a palm tree between a cherub, and 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;19with a human face looking toward the palm tree on one side and a young lion's face looking toward the palm tree on the other side. These carvings extended all the way around the Temple,
20from the ground to the area above the entrance, cherubim and decorative palm trees were carved on the wall of the outer sanctuary.20from the ground to above the doorway, as well as on the walls of the main sanctuary.
21The doorposts of the outer sanctuary were square. In front of the sanctuary one doorpost looked just like the other.21The door posts of the main sanctuary were square. Each door post was identical in appearance to the others.
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, three cubits high and two cubits long. Its corners, base, and sides were of wood. He told me, "This table stands in the LORD's presence."
23The outer sanctuary and the inner sanctuary each had a double door.23The nave and the sanctuary each were equipped with double doors.
24Each of the doors had two leaves, two swinging leaves; two leaves for one door and two leaves for the other.24Each door had two sections mounted on hinges, for a total of two sections for one door and two sections 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.25The doors of the nave had carvings engraved on them, consisting of cherubim and palm trees identical to those on the walls. The front of the exterior porch was equipped with a wooden threshold.
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. 26Shielded windows and palm trees were visible on both sides; that is, on the sides of the porch, the side chambers of the Temple, and on its thresholds.
