1And he brought me to the temple, and measured the posts, six cubits broad on the one side, and six cubits broad on the other side, which was the breadth of the tabernacle. 2And the breadth of the entrance was ten cubits; and the sides of the entrance were five cubits on the one side, and five cubits on the other side: and he measured the length thereof, forty cubits, and the breadth, twenty cubits. 3Then went he inward, and measured each post of the entrance, two cubits: and the entrance, six cubits; and the breadth of the entrance, seven cubits. 4And he measured the length thereof twenty cubits, and the breadth, twenty cubits, before the temple: and he said unto me, This is the most holy place. 5Then he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the breadth of every side-chamber, four cubits, round about the house on every side. 6And the side-chambers were in three stories, one over another, and thirty in order; and they entered into the wall which belonged to the house for the side-chambers round about, that they might have hold therein, and not have hold in the wall of the house. 7And the side-chambers were broader as they encompassed the househigher and higher; for the encompassing of the house went higher and higher round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house continuedupward; and so one went up fromthe lowest chamberto the highest by the middle chamber. 8I saw also that the house had a raised basement round about: the foundations of the side-chambers were a full reed of six great cubits. 9The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chambers, on the outside, was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side-chambers that belonged to the house. 10And between the chambers was a breadth of twenty cubits round about the house on every side. 11And the doors of the side-chambers were toward the placethat was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about. 12And the building that was before the separate place at the side toward the west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building was five cubits thick round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits. 13So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long, and the separate place, and the building, with the walls thereof, an hundred cubits long; 14also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate place toward the east, an hundred cubits. 15And he measured the length of the building before the separate place which was at the back thereof, and the galleries thereof on the one side and on the other side, an hundred cubits; and the inner temple, and the porches of the court; 16the thresholds, and the closed windows, and the galleries round about on their three stories, over against the threshold, cieled with wood round about, and fromthe ground up to the windows; now the windows were covered; 17to the spaceabove the door, even unto the inner house, and without, and by all the wall round about within and without, by measure. 18And it was made with cherubim and palm trees; and a palm tree was between cherub and cherub, and every cherub had two faces; 19so that there was the face of a man toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the other side: thus was itmade through all the house round about. 20from the ground unto above the door were cherubim and palm trees made: thus was the wall of the temple. 21As for the temple, the door posts were squared; and as for the face of the sanctuary, the appearance thereofwas as the appearance of the temple. 22The altar was of wood, three cubits high, and the length thereof two cubits; and the corners thereof, and the length thereof, and the walls thereof, were of wood: and he said unto me, This is the table that is before the LORD. 23And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors. 24And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves; two leavesfor the one door, and two leaves for the other. 25And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubim and palm trees, like as were made upon the walls; and there were thick beams of wood upon the face of the porch without. 26And there were closed windows and palm trees on the one side and on the other side, on the sides of the porch: thus were the side-chambers of the house, and the thick beams.
