Then he measured the length and width of the north gate, leading into the outer court.
Its openings, its portico and its palm tree decorations had the same measurements as those of the gate facing east. Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them.
Then he led me to the south side and I saw the south gate. He measured its jambs and its portico, and they had the same measurements as the others.
Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them; it had palm tree decorations on the faces of the projecting walls on each side.
