The Prophet's Vision of the Temple

40 1  In the twenty and fifth year of our removal, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in this self-same day hath a hand of Jehovah been upon me, and He bringeth me in thither; 2  in visions of God He hath brought me in unto the land of Israel, and causeth me to rest on a very high mountain, and upon it 'is' as the frame of a city on the south. 3  And He bringeth me in thither, and lo, a man, his appearance as the appearance of brass, and a thread of flax in his hand, and a measuring-reed, and he is standing at the gate, 4  and the man speaketh unto me: 'Son of man, see with thine eyes, And with thine ears hear, And set thy heart to all that I am shewing thee, For, in order to shew 'it' thee, Thou hast been brought in hither, Declare all that thou art seeing to the house of Israel.'

5  And lo, a wall on the outside of the house all round about, and in the hand of the man a measuring-reed, six cubits by a cubit and a handbreadth, and he measureth the breadth of the building one reed, and the height one reed. 6  And he cometh in unto the gate whose front 'is' eastward, and he goeth up by its steps, and he measureth the threshold of the gate one reed broad, even the one threshold one reed broad, 7  and the little chamber one reed long and one reed broad, and between the little chambers five cubits, and the threshold of the gate, from the side of the porch of the gate from within, one reed. 8  And he measureth the porch of the gate from within one reed, 9  and he measureth the porch of the gate eight cubits, and its posts two cubits, and the porch of the gates from within, 10  and the little chambers of the gate eastward, three on this side, and three on that side; one measure 'is' to them three, and one measure 'is' to the posts, on this side and on that side. 11  And he measureth the breadth of the opening of the gate ten cubits, the length of the gate thirteen cubits; 12  and a border before the little chambers, one cubit, and one cubit 'is' the border on this side, and the little chamber 'is' six cubits on this side, and six cubits on that side. 13  And he measureth the gate from the roof of the 'one' little chamber to the roof of another; the breadth twenty and five cubits, opening over-against opening. 14  And he maketh the posts of sixty cubits, even unto the post of the court, the gate all round about; 15  and by the front of the gate of the entrance, by the front of the porch of the inner gate, fifty cubits; 16  and narrow windows 'are' unto the little chambers, and unto their posts at the inside of the gate all round about—and so to the arches—and windows all round about 'are' at the inside, and at the post 'are' palm-trees. 17  And he bringeth me in unto the outer court, and lo, chambers and a pavement made for the court all round about—thirty chambers on the pavement— 18  and the pavement unto the side of the gates over-against the length of the gates 'is' the lower pavement; 19  and he measureth the breadth from before the lower gate, to the front of the inner court, on the outside, a hundred cubits, eastward and northward. 20  As to the gate of the outer court whose front 'is' northward, he hath measured its length and its breadth; 21  and its little chambers, three on this side, and three on that side, and its posts and its arches have been according to the measure of the first gate, fifty cubits its length, and the breadth five and twenty by the cubit; 22  and its windows, and its arches, and its palm-trees 'are' according to the measure of the gate whose face 'is' eastward, and by seven steps they go up on it, and its arches 'are' before them. 23  And the gate of the inner court 'is' over-against the gate at the north and at the east; and he measureth from gate unto gate, a hundred cubits. 24  And he causeth me to go southward, and lo, a gate southward, and he hath measured its posts and its arches according to these measures; 25  and windows 'are' to it and to its arches all round about, like these windows, fifty cubits the length, and the breadth five and twenty cubits; 26  and seven steps 'are' its ascent, and its arches 'are' before them, and palm-trees 'are' to it, one on this side, and one on that side, at its posts;

27  and the gate of the inner court 'is' southward, and he measureth from gate unto gate southward, a hundred cubits. 28  And he bringeth me in unto the inner court by the south gate, and he measureth the south gate according to these measures; 29  and its little chambers, and its posts, and its arches 'are' according to these measures, and windows 'are' to it and to its arches all round about; fifty cubits the length, and the breadth twenty and five cubits. 30  As to the arches all round about, the length 'is' five and twenty cubits, and the breadth five cubits; 31  and its arches 'are' unto the outer court, and palm-trees 'are' unto its posts, and eight steps 'are' its ascent. 32  And he bringeth me in unto the inner court eastward, and he measureth the gate according to these measures; 33  and its little chambers, and its posts, and its arches 'are' according to these measures: and windows 'are' to it and to its arches all round about, the length fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits; 34  and its arches 'are' toward the outer court, and palm-trees 'are' toward its posts, on this side and on that side, and eight steps 'are' its ascent. 35  And he bringeth me in unto the north gate, and hath measured according to these measures; 36  its little chambers, its posts, and its arches; and windows 'are' to it all round about: the length fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits; 37  and its posts 'are' to the outer court, and palm-trees 'are' unto its posts, on this side and on that side, and eight steps 'are' its ascent. 38  And the chamber and its opening 'is' by the posts of the gates, there they purge the burnt-offering.

39  And in the porch of the gate 'are' two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slaughter on them the burnt-offering, and the sin-offering, and the guilt-offering; 40  and at the side without, at the going up to the opening of the north gate, 'are' two tables; and at the other side that 'is' at the porch of the gate, 'are' two tables; 41  four tables 'are' on this side, and four tables on that side, at the side of the gate, eight tables on which they slaughter. 42  And the four tables for burnt-offering 'are' of hewn stone: the length one cubit and a half, and the breadth one cubit and a half, and the height one cubit: on them they place the instruments with which they slaughter the burnt-offering and the sacrifice. 43  And the boundaries 'are' one handbreadth, prepared within all round about: and on the tables 'is' the flesh of the offering. 44  And on the outside of the inner gate 'are' chambers of the singers, in the inner court, that 'are' at the side of the north gate, and their fronts 'are' southward, one at the side of the east gate 'hath' the front northward. 45  And he speaketh unto me: 'This chamber, whose front 'is' southward, 'is' for priests keeping charge of the house; 46  and the chamber, whose front 'is' northward, 'is' for priests keeping charge of the altar: they 'are' sons of Zadok, who are drawing near of the sons of Levi unto Jehovah, to serve Him.' 47  And he measureth the court: the length a hundred cubits, and the breadth a hundred cubits, square, and the altar 'is' before the house. 48  And he bringeth me in unto the porch of the house, and he measureth the post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side, and the breadth of the gate, three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side; 49  the length of the porch twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; and by the steps whereby they go up unto it: and pillars 'are' at the posts, one on this side, and one on that side.

41 1  And he bringeth me in unto the temple, and he measureth the posts, six cubits the breadth on this side, and six cubits the breadth on that side—the breadth of the tent. 2  And the breadth of the opening 'is' ten cubits; and the sides of the opening 'are' five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side; and he measureth its length forty cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits. 3  And he hath gone inward, and measureth the post of the opening two cubits, and the opening six cubits, and the breadth of the opening seven cubits. 4  And he measureth its length twenty cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits, unto the front of the temple, and he saith unto me, 'This 'is' the holy of holies.' 5  And he measureth the wall of the house six cubits, and the breadth of the side-chamber four cubits, all round the house round about. 6  And the side-chambers 'are' side-chamber by side-chamber, three and thirty times; and they are entering into the wall—which the house hath for the side-chambers all round about—to be taken hold of, and they are not taken hold of by the wall of the house. 7  And a broad place and a turning place still upwards 'are' to the side-chambers, for the turning round of the house 'is' still upwards all round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house 'is' upwards, and so the lower one goeth up unto the higher by the midst. 8  And I have looked at the house, the height all round about: the foundations of the side-chambers 'are' the fulness of the reed, six cubits by the joining. 9  The breadth of the wall that 'is' to the side-chamber at the outside 'is' five cubits; and that which is left 'is' the place of the side-chambers that 'are' to the house. 10  And between the chambers 'is' a breadth of twenty cubits round about the house, all round about. 11  And the opening of the side-chamber 'is' to the place left, one opening northward, and one opening southward, and the breadth of the place that is left 'is' five cubits all round about.

12  As to the building that 'is' at the front of the separate place 'at' the corner westward, the breadth 'is' seventy cubits, and the wall of the building five cubits broad all round about, and its length ninety cubits. 13  And he hath measured the house, the length 'is' a hundred cubits; and the separate place, and the building, and its walls, the length 'is' a hundred cubits; 14  and the breadth of the front of the house, and of the separate place eastward, a hundred cubits. 15  And he hath measured the length of the building unto the front of the separate place that 'is' at its hinder part, and its galleries on this side and on that side, a hundred cubits, and the inner temple and the porches of the court, 16  the thresholds, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round about them three, over-against the threshold, a ceiling of wood all round about, and the ground unto the windows and the covered windows, 17  over above the opening, and unto the inner-house, and at the outside, and by all the wall all round about within and without 'by' measure. 18  And it is made 'with' cherubs and palm-trees, and a palm-tree 'is' between cherub and cherub, and two faces 'are' to the cherub; 19  and the face of man 'is' unto the palm-tree on this side, and the face of a young lion unto the palm-tree on that side; it is made unto all the house all round about. 20  from the earth unto above the opening 'are' the cherubs and the palm-trees made, and 'on' the wall of the temple. 21  Of the temple the side post 'is' square, and of the front of the sanctuary, the appearance 'is' as the appearance. 22  Of the altar, the wood 'is' three cubits in height, and its length two cubits; and its corners 'are' to it, and its length, and its walls 'are' of wood, and he speaketh unto me, 'This 'is' the table that 'is' before Jehovah.' 23  And two doors 'are' to the temple and to the sanctuary; 24  and two leaves 'are' to the doors, two turning leaves 'are' to the doors, two to the one door, and two leaves to the other. 25  And made on them, on the doors of the temple, 'are' cherubs and palm-trees as are made on the walls, and a thickness of wood 'is' at the front of the porch on the outside. 26  And narrow windows and palm-trees 'are' on this side, and on that side, at the sides of the porch, and the side-chambers of the house, and the thick places.
