Ezekiel 42
A Faithful Version

1And he brought me out into the outer court, the way northward. And he brought me into the chamber that was across from the outer courtyard and which was in front of the building to the north. 2The length of a hundred cubits was in front of the north door, and the width was fifty cubits. 3Across from the twenty cubits which belonged to the inner court, and across from the pavement which was for the outer court, gallery was upon gallery in three stories. 4And before the chambers was a walk way of ten cubits width inside, a path of one cubit. And their doors faced north. 5And the upper chambers were shorter; for the galleries used up more space than the lower and middle ones in the building. 6For they were in three stories, but there were no columns to them like the columns of the courts. So the third story was made narrower than the lower and the middle stories from the ground upward. 7And the wall that was outside near the chambers, toward the outer court on the front of the chambers, its length was fifty cubits. 8For the length of the chambers that were in the outer court was fifty cubits. And lo, in front of the temple was a hundred cubits. 9And under these chambers was the entrance on the east side, as one goes into them from the outer court,

10In the width of the wall of the court eastward, to the front of the separate area, and to the front of the building were chambers. 11And the way in front of them looked like the chambers which were northward, as was their length, so was their width. And all their exits were as their patterns, and as their doors. 12And by the doors of the chambers that faced southward was a door in the end of the pathway, even the pathway directly in front of the wall toward the east, as one enters them.

13And he said to me, "The north chambers and the south chambers which are in front of the courtyard, they are holy chambers, where the priests shall eat, those who approach to the LORD shall eat the most holy things. There they shall lay the most holy things, and the grain offering, and the sin offering, and the guilt offering. For the place is holy. 14When the priests enter, then they shall not go out of the holy place into the outer court, but they shall lay their clothes there in which they minister, for they are holy. And they shall put on other clothes, and shall approach that which is for the people."

15Now when he finished measuring the inner temple; he brought me out by the way of the gate whose view is toward the east, and measured it all around. 16He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed, all around. 17He measured the north side, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed all around. 18He measured the south side, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 19He turned to the west side, measuring five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 20He measured it by the four sides. It had a wall all around, five hundred long, and five hundred wide, to make a separation between the holy place and the common place.
