1 In the atwenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the bcity was 1taken, on that same day the chand of the Lord was upon me and He brought me there.
4 The man said to me, “aSon of man, bsee 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. cDeclare to the house of Israel all that you see.”
5 And behold, there was a awall on the outside of the 1temple all around, and in the man’s hand was a measuring rod of six cubits, each of which was a cubit and a 2handbreadth. So he measured the thickness of the 3wall, one rod; and the height, one rod.
8 Then he measured the porch of the gate 1facing inward, one rod.
9 He measured the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and its side pillars, two cubits. And the porch of the gate was 1faced inward.
11 And he measured the width of the 1gateway, ten cubits, and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.
12 There was a 1barrier wall one cubit wide in front of the guardrooms on each side; and the guardrooms were six cubits square on each side.
14 He made the side pillars sixty cubits high; the gate extended round about to the side pillar of the acourtyard.
16 There were 1ashuttered 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 bpalm tree ornaments.
18 The pavement (that is, the lower pavement) was by the 1side of the gates, corresponding to the length of the gates.
20 As for the agate of the outer court which faced the north, he measured its length and its width.
22 Its awindows and its porches and its palm tree ornaments had the same measurements as the bgate which faced toward the east; and 1it was reached by seven csteps, and its 2porch was in front of them.
23 The inner court had a gate opposite the gate on the north as well as the gate on the east; and he measured a ahundred cubits from gate to gate.
28 Then he brought me to the inner court by the south gate; and he measured the south gate aaccording to those same measurements.
29 Its aguardrooms also, its side pillars and its bporches were according to those same measurements. And 1the gate and its porches had bwindows all around; it was cfifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide.
30 There were aporches all around, twenty-five cubits long and five cubits wide.
33 Its aguardrooms also, its side pillars and its porches were according to those same measurements. And 1the gate and its porches had bwindows all around; it was cfifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide.
35 Then he brought me to the anorth gate; and he measured it according to those same measurements,
42 For the burnt offering there were four atables of bhewn 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 aburnt offering and the sacrifice.
44 From the outside to the ainner gate were 1bchambers for the csingers in the inner court, one of which was at the 2side of the north gate, with 3its front toward the south, and one at the 2side of the 4south gate facing toward the north.
