Ezekiel 40


40:1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the
 beginning of the year, in the tenth [day] of the month, in the
 fourteenth year after the city was smitten, in the same day the
 hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither.
40:2 In the visions of God he brought me into the land of
 Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which [was] as
 the frame of a city on the south.
40:3 And he brought me thither, and behold, [there was] a man,
 whose appearance [was] like the appearance of brass, with a
 line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in
 the gate.
40:4 And the man said to me, Son of man, behold with thy eyes,
 and hear with thy ears, and set thy heart upon all that I shall
 show thee; for, to the intent that I might show [them] to thee
 [art] thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the
 house of Israel.
40:5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house around, and
 in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits [long] by the
 cubit and a hand-breadth: so he measured the breadth of the
 building, one reed: and the hight, one reed.
40:6 Then he came to the gate which looketh towards the east,
 and ascended its stairs, and measured the threshhold of the
 gate, [which was] one reed broad; and the other threshhold [of
 the gate], [which was] one reed broad.
40:7 And [every] little chamber [was] one reed long, and one
 reed broad; and between the little chambers [were] five cubits;
 and the threshhold of the gate by the porch of the gate within
 [was] one reed.
40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.
40:9 Then he measured the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and
 its posts, two cubits; and the porch of the gate [was] inward.
40:10 And the little chambers of the gate eastward [were] three
 on this side, and three on that side; they three [were] of one
 measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on that
 side.
40:11 And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten
 cubits; [and] the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.
40:12 The space also before the little chambers [was] one cubit
 [on this side], and the space [was] one cubit on that side: and
 the little chambers [were] six cubits on this side, and six
 cubits on that side.
40:13 He measured then the gate from the roof of [one] little
 chamber to the roof of another: the breadth [was] five and
 twenty cubits, door against door.
40:14 He made also posts of sixty cubits; even to the post of
 the court around the gate.
40:15 And from the face of the gate of the entrance to the face
 of the porch of the inner gate [were] fifty cubits.
40:16 And [there were] narrow windows to the little chambers,
 and to their posts within the gate around, and likewise to the
 arches: and windows [were] around inward: and upon [each] post
 [were] palm-trees.
40:17 Then he brought me into the outward court, and lo, [there
 were] chambers, and a pavement made for the court around:
 thirty chambers [were] upon the pavement.
40:18 And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the
 length of the gates [was] the lower pavement.
40:19 Then he measured the breadth from the front of the lower
 gate to the front of the inner court without, a hundred cubits
 eastward and northward.
40:20 And the gate of the outward court that looked towards the
 north, he measured its length, and its breadth.
40:21 And the little chambers of it [were] three on this side
 and three on that side; and its posts and its arches were after
 the measure of the first gate; its length [was] fifty cubits,
 and its breadth five and twenty cubits.
40:22 And their windows, and their arches, and their palm-trees,
 [were] after the measure of the gate that looketh towards the
 east; and they went up to it by seven steps; and its arches
 [were] before them.
40:23 And the gate of the inner court [was] over against the
 gate towards the north, and towards the east; and he measured
 from gate to gate a hundred cubits.
40:24 After that he brought me towards the south, and behold a
 gate towards the south: and he measured its posts and its
 arches according to these measures.
40:25 And [there were] windows in it and in its arches around,
 like those windows: the length [was] fifty cubits, and the
 breadth five and twenty cubits.
40:26 And [there were] seven steps to go up to it, and its
 arches [were] before them: and it had palm-trees, one on this
 side, and another on that side, upon its posts.
40:27 And [there was] a gate in the inner court towards the
 south: and he measured from gate to gate towards the south a
 hundred cubits.
40:28 And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate;
 and he measured the south gate according to these measures;
40:29 And its little chambers, and its posts, and its arches,
 according to these measures; and [there were] windows in it and
 in its arches around: [it was] fifty cubits long, and five and
 twenty cubits broad.
40:30 And the arches around [were] five and twenty cubits long,
 and five cubits broad.
40:31 And its arches [were] towards the outer court; and
 palm-trees [were] upon its posts: and the ascent to it [had]
 eight steps.
40:32 And he brought me into the inner court towards the east:
 and he measured the gate according to these measures.
40:33 And its little chambers, and its posts, and its arches,
 [were] according to these measures; and [there were] windows in
 it and in its arches around: [it was] fifty cubits long, and
 five and twenty cubits broad.
40:34 And its arches [were] towards the outward court; and
 palm-trees were upon its posts, on this side, and on that side:
 and the ascent to it [had] eight steps.
40:35 And he brought me to the north gate, and measured [it]
 according to these measures;
40:36 Its little chambers, its posts, and its arches, and the
 windows to it around: the length [was] fifty cubits, and the
 breadth five and twenty cubits.
40:37 And its posts [were] towards the outer court; and
 palm-trees [were] upon its posts, on this side, and on that
 side: and the ascent to it [had] eight steps.
40:38 And the chambers and its entries [were] by the posts of
 the gates, where they washed the burnt-offering.
40:39 And in the porch of the gate [were] two tables on this
 side, and two tables on that side, to slay upon it the
 burnt-offering and the sin-offering and the trespass-offering.
40:40 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of
 the north gate, [were] two tables; and on the other side, which
 [was] at the porch of the gate, [were] two tables.
40:41 Four tables [were] on this side, and four tables on that
 side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, upon which they
 slew [their sacrifices].
40:42 And the four tables [were] of hewn stone for the
 burnt-offering, of a cubit and a half long, and a cubit and a
 half broad, and one cubit high: upon which also they laid the
 instruments with which they slew the burnt-offering and the
 sacrifice.
40:43 And within [were] hooks, a hand broad, fastened around:
 and upon the tables [was] the flesh of the offering.
40:44 And without the inner gate [were] the chambers of the
 singers in the inner court, which [was] at the side of the
 north gate; and their prospect [was] towards the south: one at
 the side of the east gate [having] the prospect towards the
 north.
40:45 And he said to me, This chamber, whose prospect [is]
 towards the south, [is] for the priests, the keepers of the
 charge of the house.
40:46 And the chamber whose prospect [is] towards the north [is]
 for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these
 [are] the sons of Zadok among the sons of Levi, who come near
 to the LORD to minister to him.
40:47 So he measured the court, a hundred cubits long, and a
 hundred cubits broad, foursquare; and the altar [that was]
 before the house.
40:48 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured
 [each] post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five
 cubits on that side: and the breadth of the gate [was] three
 cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side.
40:49 The length of the porch [was] twenty cubits, and the
 breadth eleven cubits; and [he brought me] by the steps by
 which they went up to it: and [there were] pillars by the
 posts, one on this side, and another on that side.
