NASB — Ezekiel 42 — KJV

Chambers of the Temple

1 Then he abrought me out into the bouter court, the way ctoward the north; and he brought me to the dchamber which [was] opposite the eseparate area and opposite the fbuilding toward the north. 2 Along the length, [which was] a ahundred cubits, [was] the north door; the width [was] fifty cubits. 3 Opposite the atwenty [cubits] which belonged to the inner court, and opposite the bpavement which belonged to the outer court, [was] Icgallery corresponding to Igallery in three stories. 4 Before the achambers [was] an inner walk ten cubits wide, a way of one [hundred] cubits; and their openings [were] on the north. 5 Now the upper chambers [were] Ismaller because the IIagalleries took more [space] away from them than from the lower and middle ones in the building. 6 For they [were] in athree stories and had no pillars like the pillars of the courts; therefore [the upper chambers] were Iset back from the ground upward, more than the lower and middle ones. 7 As for the aouter wall by the side of the chambers, toward the outer court facing the chambers, its length [was] fifty cubits. 8 For 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 ahundred cubits. 9 Below these chambers [was] the aentrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court.

10 ¶ In the Ithickness of the awall of the court toward the east, facing the bseparate area and facing the building, [there were] cchambers. 11 The away 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. 12 Corresponding 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 awall toward the east, as one enters them.

13 ¶ Then he said to me, “The north chambers [and] the south chambers, which are opposite the aseparate area, they are the bholy chambers where the priests who are cnear to the LORD shall eat the dmost 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. 14 When the priests enter, then they shall not go out into the outer court from the sanctuary Iwithout alaying there their bgarments in which they minister, for they are holy. They shall put on other garments; then they shall approach that which is for the people.”

15 ¶ Now when he had finished measuring the inner house, he brought me out by the way of the agate which faced toward the east and measured it all around. 16 He measured on the east side with the measuring reed five hundred reeds by the ameasuring reed. 17 He measured on the north side five hundred reeds by the measuring reed. 18 On the south side he measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 19 He turned to the west side [and] measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 20 He measured it Ion the four sides; it had a awall all around, the blength five hundred and the bwidth five hundred, to cdivide between the holy and the profane.

The chambers for the priests.

1 ¶ Then 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. 2 Before the length of an hundred cubits [was] the north door, and the breadth [was] fifty cubits. 3 Over 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]. 4 And before the chambers [was] a walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north. 5 Now the upper chambers [were] shorter: for the galleries were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building. 6 For 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. 7 And 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. 8 For the length of the chambers that [were] in the utter court [was] fifty cubits: and, lo, before the temple [were] an hundred cubits. 9 And from under these chambers [was] the entry on the east side, as one goeth into them from the utter court. 10 The chambers [were] in the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, over against the separate place, and over against the building. 11 And 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. 12 And 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.

13 ¶ Then 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. 14 When 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. 15 Now 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. 16 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about. 17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about. 18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed.

19 ¶ He turned about to the west side, [and] measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 20 He 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.
