NET BibleNew International Version
1Then he brought me to the outer sanctuary, and measured the jambs; the jambs were 10 1/2 feet wide on each side.1Then the man brought me to the main hall and measured the jambs; the width of the jambs was six cubits on each side.
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 the projecting walls on each side of it were five cubits wide. He also measured the main hall; it was forty cubits long and twenty cubits wide.
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 into the inner sanctuary and measured the jambs of the entrance; each was two cubits wide. The entrance was six cubits wide, and the projecting walls on each side of it were 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." 4And he measured the length of the inner sanctuary; it was twenty cubits, and its width was twenty cubits across the end of the main hall. 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 six cubits thick, and each side room around the temple was four cubits wide.
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 on three levels, one above another, thirty on each level. There were ledges all around the wall of the temple to serve as supports for the side rooms, so that the supports were not inserted into the wall of the temple.
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 all around the temple were wider at each successive level. The structure surrounding the temple was built in ascending stages, so that the rooms widened as one went upward. A stairway went up from the lowest floor to the top floor through the middle floor.
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 base all around it, forming the foundation of the side rooms. It was the length of the rod, six long cubits.
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 rooms was five cubits thick. The open area 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 priests' rooms was twenty cubits 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. 11There were entrances to the side rooms from the open area, one on the north and another on the south; and the base adjoining the open area was five cubits 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. 12The building facing the temple courtyard on the west side was seventy cubits wide. The wall of the building was five cubits thick all around, and its length was ninety cubits.
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 a hundred cubits long, and the temple courtyard and the building with its walls were also a hundred cubits long.
14and also the width of the front of the temple and the courtyard on the east as 175 feet. 14The width of the temple courtyard on the east, including the front of the temple, was a hundred cubits.
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,15Then he measured the length of the building facing the courtyard at the rear of the temple, including its galleries on each side; it was a hundred cubits. The main hall, the inner sanctuary and the portico facing 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),16as well as the thresholds and the narrow windows and galleries around the three of them--everything beyond and including the threshold was covered with wood. The floor, the wall up to the windows, and 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.17In the space above the outside of the entrance to the inner sanctuary and on the walls at regular intervals all around the inner and outer sanctuary
18It was made with cherubim and decorative palm trees, with a palm tree between each cherub. Each cherub had two faces:18were carved cherubim and palm trees. Palm trees alternated with 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;19the face of a human being toward the palm tree on one side and the face of a lion toward the palm tree on the other. They were carved all around the whole 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 floor to the area above the entrance, cherubim and palm trees were carved on the wall of the main hall.
21The doorposts of the outer sanctuary were square. In front of the sanctuary one doorpost looked just like the other.21The main hall had a rectangular doorframe, and the one at the front of the Most Holy Place was similar.
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."22There was a wooden altar three cubits high and two cubits square; its corners, its base and its sides were of wood. The man said to me, "This is the table that is before the LORD."
23The outer sanctuary and the inner sanctuary each had a double door.23Both the main hall and the Most Holy Place had 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 leaves--two hinged leaves for each door.
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.25And on the doors of the main hall were carved cherubim and palm trees like those carved on the walls, and there was a wooden overhang on the 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. 26On the sidewalls of the portico were narrow windows with palm trees carved on each side. The side rooms of the temple also had overhangs.
