Chambers for the Priests

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1Then the man led me northward into the outer court and brought me to the rooms opposite the temple courtyard and opposite the outer wall on the north side.1Then he led me out into the outer court, toward the north, and he brought me to the chambers that were opposite the separate yard and opposite the building on the north.1Then he brought me out into the outer court, the way toward the north; and he brought me to the chamber which was opposite the separate area and opposite the building toward the north.1Then he brought me forth into the utter court, the way toward the north: and he brought me into the chamber that was over against the separate place, and which was before the building toward the north.1Then the man led me out by way of the north gate into the outer court. He brought me to the group of chambers opposite the temple yard and opposite the building to the north.
2The building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide.2The length of the building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits, and the breadth fifty cubits.2Along the length, which was a hundred cubits, was the north door; the width was fifty cubits.2Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was fifty cubits.2Along the length of the chambers, which was 175 feet, there was an entrance on the north; the width was 87 1/2 feet.
3Both in the section twenty cubits from the inner court and in the section opposite the pavement of the outer court, gallery faced gallery at the three levels.3Facing the twenty cubits that belonged to the inner court, and facing the pavement that belonged to the outer court, was gallery against gallery in three stories.3Opposite the twenty cubits which belonged to the inner court, and opposite the pavement which belonged to the outer court, was gallery corresponding to gallery in three stories.3Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and over against the pavement which was for the utter court, was gallery against gallery in three stories.3Opposite the 35 foot space belonging to the inner court and opposite the paved surface belonging to the outer court, the structure rose gallery by gallery in three tiers.
4In front of the rooms was an inner passageway ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long. Their doors were on the north.4And before the chambers was a passage inward, ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long, and their doors were on the north.4Before the chambers was an inner walk ten cubits wide, a way of one hundred cubits; and their openings were on the north.4And before the chambers was a walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north.4In front of the chambers was a walkway toward the inside, 17 1/2 feet wide and 175 feet long, and their entrances were on the north.

5Now the upper rooms were narrower, for the galleries took more space from them than from the rooms on the lower and middle floors of the building.5Now the upper chambers were narrower, for the galleries took more away from them than from the lower and middle chambers of the building.5Now the upper chambers were smaller because the galleries took more space away from them than from the lower and middle ones in the building.5Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.5The upper chambers were narrower because the galleries took away more space from them than from the lower and middle stories of the building.
6The rooms on the top floor had no pillars, as the courts had; so they were smaller in floor space than those on the lower and middle floors.6For they were in three stories, and they had no pillars like the pillars of the courts. Thus the upper chambers were set back from the ground more than the lower and the middle ones.6For they were in three stories and had no pillars like the pillars of the courts; therefore the upper chambers were set back from the ground upward, more than the lower and middle ones.6For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the pillars of the courts: therefore the building was straitened more than the lowest and the middlemost from the ground.6For they were arranged in three stories and had no pillars like the pillars of the courts; therefore the upper chambers were set back from the ground more than the lower and middle stories.
7There was an outer wall parallel to the rooms and the outer court; it extended in front of the rooms for fifty cubits.7And there was a wall outside parallel to the chambers, toward the outer court, opposite the chambers, fifty cubits long.7As for the outer wall by the side of the chambers, toward the outer court facing the chambers, its length was fifty cubits.7And the wall that was without over against the chambers, toward the utter court on the forepart of the chambers, the length thereof was fifty cubits.7A wall on the outside ran in front of the chambers, parallel to them, toward the outer court; it was 87 1/2 feet long.
8While the row of rooms on the side next to the outer court was fifty cubits long, the row on the side nearest the sanctuary was a hundred cubits long.8For the chambers on the outer court were fifty cubits long, while those opposite the nave were a hundred cubits long.8For the length of the chambers which were in the outer court was fifty cubits; and behold, the length of those facing the temple was a hundred cubits.8For the length of the chambers that were in the utter court was fifty cubits: and, lo, before the temple were an hundred cubits.8For the chambers on the outer court were 87 1/2 feet long, while those facing the great hall were 175 feet long.
9The lower rooms had an entrance on the east side as one enters them from the outer court.9Below these chambers was an entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court.9Below these chambers was the entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court.9And from under these chambers was the entry on the east side, as one goeth into them from the utter court.9At the base of these chambers there was an entryway on the east side as one enters them from the outer court.

10On the south side along the length of the wall of the outer court, adjoining the temple courtyard and opposite the outer wall, were rooms10In the thickness of the wall of the court, on the south also, opposite the yard and opposite the building, there were chambers10In the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, facing the separate area and facing the building, there were chambers.10The chambers were in the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, over against the separate place, and over against the building.10In the thickness of the wall of the court toward the south, there were chambers facing the temple yard and the western building,
11with a passageway in front of them. These were like the rooms on the north; they had the same length and width, with similar exits and dimensions. Similar to the doorways on the north11with a passage in front of them. They were similar to the chambers on the north, of the same length and breadth, with the same exits and arrangements and doors,11The way in front of them was like the appearance of the chambers which were on the north, according to their length so was their width, and all their exits were both according to their arrangements and openings.11And the way before them was like the appearance of the chambers which were toward the north, as long as they, and as broad as they: and all their goings out were both according to their fashions, and according to their doors.11with a passageway in front of them, just like the chambers that faced north. Their length and width, as well as all their exits, measurements, and entrances, were identical.
12were the doorways of the rooms on the south. There was a doorway at the beginning of the passageway that was parallel to the corresponding wall extending eastward, by which one enters the rooms.12as were the entrances of the chambers on the south. There was an entrance at the beginning of the passage, the passage before the corresponding wall on the east as one enters them.12Corresponding to the openings of the chambers which were toward the south was an opening at the head of the way, the way in front of the wall toward the east, as one enters them.12And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward the south was a door in the head of the way, even the way directly before the wall toward the east, as one entereth into them.12The entrance at the beginning of the passageway, the way in front of the corresponding wall as one enters on the east side, was similar to the entrances of the chambers that were on the south side.
13Then he said to me, "The north and south rooms facing the temple courtyard are the priests' rooms, where the priests who approach the LORD will eat the most holy offerings. There they will put the most holy offerings--the grain offerings, the sin offerings and the guilt offerings--for the place is holy.13Then he said to me, “The north chambers and the south chambers opposite the yard are the holy chambers, where the priests who approach the LORD shall eat the most holy offerings. There they shall put the most holy offerings—the grain offering, the sin offering, and the guilt offering—for the place is holy.13Then he said to me, "The north chambers and the south chambers, which are opposite the separate area, they are the holy chambers where the priests who are near to the LORD shall eat the most holy things. There they shall lay the most holy things, the grain offering, the sin offering and the guilt offering; for the place is holy.13Then said he unto me, The north chambers and the south chambers, which are before the separate place, they be holy chambers, where the priests that approach unto the LORD shall eat the most holy things: there shall they lay the most holy things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering; for the place is holy.13Then the man said to me, "The northern and southern chambers that face the temple yard are the holy chambers where the priests who approach the LORD will eat the most holy offerings. There they will deposit the most holy offerings--the grain offerings, sin offerings, and restitution offerings--for the place is holy.
14Once the priests enter the holy precincts, they are not to go into the outer court until they leave behind the garments in which they minister, for these are holy. They are to put on other clothes before they go near the places that are for the people."14When the priests enter the Holy Place, they shall not go out of it into the outer court without laying there the garments in which they minister, for these are holy. They shall put on other garments before they go near to that which is for the people.”14"When the priests enter, then they shall not go out into the outer court from the sanctuary without laying there their garments in which they minister, for they are holy. They shall put on other garments; then they shall approach that which is for the people."14When the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of the holy place into the utter court, but there they shall lay their garments wherein they minister; for they are holy; and shall put on other garments, and shall approach to those things which are for the people.14Once the priests have entered, they must not go out from the holy area to the outer court until they have removed the clothes they minister in, for these are holy. They are to put on other clothes before they approach the public area."

Outer Measurements

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
15When he had finished measuring what was inside the temple area, he led me out by the east gate and measured the area all around:15Now when he had finished measuring the interior of the temple area, he led me out by the gate that faced east, and measured the temple area all around.15Now when he had finished measuring the inner house, he brought me out by the way of the gate which faced toward the east and measured it all around.15Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it round about.15When he finished measuring inside the temple complex, he led me out by way of the gate that faced east and measured all around the complex.
16He measured the east side with the measuring rod; it was five hundred cubits.16He measured the east side with the measuring reed, 500 cubits by the measuring reed all around.16He measured on the east side with the measuring reed five hundred reeds by the measuring reed.16He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.16He measured the east side with a measuring rod; it was 875 feet by the measuring rod.
17He measured the north side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.17He measured the north side, 500 cubits by the measuring reed all around.17He measured on the north side five hundred reeds by the measuring reed.17He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.17He measured the north side; it was 875 feet by the measuring rod.
18He measured the south side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.18He measured the south side, 500 cubits by the measuring reed.18On the south side he measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.18He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed.18He measured the south side; it was 875 feet by the measuring rod.

19Then he turned to the west side and measured; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.19Then he turned to the west side and measured, 500 cubits by the measuring reed.19He turned to the west side and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.19He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.19Then he turned to the west side and measured 875 feet by the measuring rod.
20So he measured the area on all four sides. It had a wall around it, five hundred cubits long and five hundred cubits wide, to separate the holy from the common.20He measured it on the four sides. It had a wall around it, 500 cubits long and 500 cubits broad, to make a separation between the holy and the common.20He measured it on the four sides; it had a wall all around, the length five hundred and the width five hundred, to divide between the holy and the profane.20He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about, five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a separation between the sanctuary and the profane place.20He measured the temple complex on all four sides. It had a wall all around it, 875 feet long and 875 feet wide, to separate the holy from the common.
