English Standard VersionNew American Standard Bible
1In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was struck down, on that very day, the hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me to the city.1In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was taken, on that same day the hand of the LORD was upon me and He brought me there.
2In visions of God he brought me to the land of Israel, and set me down on a very high mountain, on which was a structure like a city to the south.2In the visions of God He brought me into the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, and on it to the south there was a structure like a city.
3When he brought me there, behold, there was a man whose appearance was like bronze, with a linen cord and a measuring reed in his hand. And he was standing in the gateway.3So He brought me there; and behold, there was a man whose appearance was like the appearance of bronze, with a line of flax and a measuring rod in his hand; and he was standing in the gateway.
4And the man said to me, “Son of man, look with your eyes, and hear with your ears, and set your heart upon all that I shall show you, for you were brought here in order that I might show it to you. Declare all that you see to the house of Israel.”4The man said to me, "Son of man, see with your eyes, hear with your ears, and give attention to all that I am going to show you; for you have been brought here in order to show it to you. Declare to the house of Israel all that you see."
5And behold, there was a wall all around the outside of the temple area, and the length of the measuring reed in the man’s hand was six long cubits, each being a cubit and a handbreadth in length. So he measured the thickness of the wall, one reed; and the height, one reed.5And behold, there was a wall on the outside of the temple all around, and in the man's hand was a measuring rod of six cubits, each of which was a cubit and a handbreadth. So he measured the thickness of the wall, one rod; and the height, one rod.
6Then he went into the gateway facing east, going up its steps, and measured the threshold of the gate, one reed deep.6Then he went to the gate which faced east, went up its steps and measured the threshold of the gate, one rod in width; and the other threshold was one rod in width.
7And the side rooms, one reed long and one reed broad; and the space between the side rooms, five cubits; and the threshold of the gate by the vestibule of the gate at the inner end, one reed.7The guardroom was one rod long and one rod wide; and there were five cubits between the guardrooms. And the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate facing inward was one rod.
8Then he measured the vestibule of the gateway, on the inside, one reed.8Then he measured the porch of the gate facing inward, one rod.
9Then he measured the vestibule of the gateway, eight cubits; and its jambs, two cubits; and the vestibule of the gate was at the inner end.9He measured the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and its side pillars, two cubits. And the porch of the gate was faced inward.
10And there were three side rooms on either side of the east gate. The three were of the same size, and the jambs on either side were of the same size.10The guardrooms of the gate toward the east numbered three on each side; the three of them had the same measurement. The side pillars also had the same measurement on each side.
11Then he measured the width of the opening of the gateway, ten cubits; and the length of the gateway, thirteen cubits.11And he measured the width of the gateway, ten cubits, and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.
12There was a barrier before the side rooms, one cubit on either side. And the side rooms were six cubits on either side.12There was a barrier wall one cubit wide in front of the guardrooms on each side; and the guardrooms were six cubits square on each side.
13Then he measured the gate from the ceiling of the one side room to the ceiling of the other, a breadth of twenty-five cubits; the openings faced each other.13He measured the gate from the roof of the one guardroom to the roof of the other, a width of twenty-five cubits from one door to the door opposite.
14He measured also the vestibule, sixty cubits. And around the vestibule of the gateway was the court.14He made the side pillars sixty cubits high; the gate extended round about to the side pillar of the courtyard.
15From the front of the gate at the entrance to the front of the inner vestibule of the gate was fifty cubits.15From the front of the entrance gate to the front of the inner porch of the gate was fifty cubits.
16And the gateway had windows all around, narrowing inwards toward the side rooms and toward their jambs, and likewise the vestibule had windows all around inside, and on the jambs were palm trees.16There were shuttered windows looking toward the guardrooms, and toward their side pillars within the gate all around, and likewise for the porches. And there were windows all around inside; and on each side pillar were palm tree ornaments.
17Then he brought me into the outer court. And behold, there were chambers and a pavement, all around the court. Thirty chambers faced the pavement.17Then he brought me into the outer court, and behold, there were chambers and a pavement made for the court all around; thirty chambers faced the pavement.
18And the pavement ran along the side of the gates, corresponding to the length of the gates. This was the lower pavement.18The pavement (that is, the lower pavement) was by the side of the gates, corresponding to the length of the gates.
19Then he measured the distance from the inner front of the lower gate to the outer front of the inner court, a hundred cubits on the east side and on the north side.19Then he measured the width from the front of the lower gate to the front of the exterior of the inner court, a hundred cubits on the east and on the north.
20As for the gate that faced toward the north, belonging to the outer court, he measured its length and its breadth.20As for the gate of the outer court which faced the north, he measured its length and its width.
21Its side rooms, three on either side, and its jambs and its vestibule were of the same size as those of the first gate. Its length was fifty cubits, and its breadth twenty-five cubits.21It had three guardrooms on each side; and its side pillars and its porches had the same measurement as the first gate. Its length was fifty cubits and the width twenty-five cubits.
22And its windows, its vestibule, and its palm trees were of the same size as those of the gate that faced toward the east. And by seven steps people would go up to it, and find its vestibule before them.22Its windows and its porches and its palm tree ornaments had the same measurements as the gate which faced toward the east; and it was reached by seven steps, and its porch was in front of them.
23And opposite the gate on the north, as on the east, was a gate to the inner court. And he measured from gate to gate, a hundred cubits.23The inner court had a gate opposite the gate on the north as well as the gate on the east; and he measured a hundred cubits from gate to gate.
24And he led me toward the south, and behold, there was a gate on the south. And he measured its jambs and its vestibule; they had the same size as the others.24Then he led me toward the south, and behold, there was a gate toward the south; and he measured its side pillars and its porches according to those same measurements.
25Both it and its vestibule had windows all around, like the windows of the others. Its length was fifty cubits, and its breadth twenty-five cubits.25The gate and its porches had windows all around like those other windows; the length was fifty cubits and the width twenty-five cubits.
26And there were seven steps leading up to it, and its vestibule was before them, and it had palm trees on its jambs, one on either side.26There were seven steps going up to it, and its porches were in front of them; and it had palm tree ornaments on its side pillars, one on each side.
27And there was a gate on the south of the inner court. And he measured from gate to gate toward the south, a hundred cubits.27The inner court had a gate toward the south; and he measured from gate to gate toward the south, a hundred cubits.
28Then he brought me to the inner court through the south gate, and he measured the south gate. It was of the same size as the others.28Then he brought me to the inner court by the south gate; and he measured the south gate according to those same measurements.
29Its side rooms, its jambs, and its vestibule were of the same size as the others, and both it and its vestibule had windows all around. Its length was fifty cubits, and its breadth twenty-five cubits.29Its guardrooms also, its side pillars and its porches were according to those same measurements.

31Its vestibule faced the outer court, and palm trees were on its jambs, and its stairway had eight steps.31Its porches were toward the outer court; and palm tree ornaments were on its side pillars, and its stairway had eight steps.
32Then he brought me to the inner court on the east side, and he measured the gate. It was of the same size as the others.32He brought me into the inner court toward the east. And he measured the gate according to those same measurements.
33Its side rooms, its jambs, and its vestibule were of the same size as the others, and both it and its vestibule had windows all around.

38There was a chamber with its door in the vestibule of the gate, where the burnt offering was to be washed.38A chamber with its doorway was by the side pillars at the gates; there they rinse the burnt offering.
39And in the vestibule of the gate were two tables on either side, on which the burnt offering and the sin offering and the guilt offering were to be slaughtered.39In the porch of the gate were two tables on each side, on which to slaughter the burnt offering, the sin offering and the guilt offering.
40And off to the side, on the outside as one goes up to the entrance of the north gate, were two tables; and off to the other side of the vestibule of the gate were two tables.40On the outer side, as one went up to the gateway toward the north, were two tables; and on the other side of the porch of the gate were two tables.
41Four tables were on either side of the gate, eight tables, on which to slaughter.41Four tables were on each side next to the gate; or, eight tables on which they slaughter sacrifices.
42And there were four tables of hewn stone for the burnt offering, a cubit and a half long, and a cubit and a half broad, and one cubit high, on which the instruments were to be laid with which the burnt offerings and the sacrifices were slaughtered.42For the burnt offering there were four tables of hewn stone, a cubit and a half long, a cubit and a half wide and one cubit high, on which they lay the instruments with which they slaughter the burnt offering and the sacrifice.
43And hooks, a handbreadth long, were fastened all around within. And on the tables the flesh of the offering was to be laid.43The double hooks, one handbreadth in length, were installed in the house all around; and on the tables was the flesh of the offering.
44On the outside of the inner gateway there were two chambers in the inner court, one at the side of the north gate facing south, the other at the side of the south gate facing north.44From the outside to the inner gate were chambers for the singers in the inner court, one of which was at the side of the north gate, with its front toward the south, and one at the side of the south gate facing toward the north.
45And he said to me, “This chamber that faces south is for the priests who have charge of the temple,45He said to me, "This is the chamber which faces toward the south, intended for the priests who keep charge of the temple;
46and the chamber that faces north is for the priests who have charge of the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, who alone among the sons of Levi may come near to the LORD to minister to him.”46but the chamber which faces toward the north is for the priests who keep charge of the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, who from the sons of Levi come near to the LORD to minister to Him."
47And he measured the court, a hundred cubits long and a hundred cubits broad, a square. And the altar was in front of the temple.47He measured the court, a perfect square, a hundred cubits long and a hundred cubits wide; and the altar was in front of the temple.
