Ezekiel 41 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
41 1 The disposition and order of the building of the Temple, and the other things thereunto belonging.
1 Afterward, 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.
2 And the breadth of the entry was ten cubits, and the sides of the entry 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.
3 Then went he in, and measured the posts of the entry two cubits, and the entry six cubits, and the breadth of the entry seven cubits.
4 So 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.
5 After, he measured the wall of the house, six cubits, and the breadth of every chamber four cubits round about the house, on every side.
6 And the chambers were chamber upon chamber, three and thirty foot high, and they entered into the wall made for the chambers which was round about the house, that the posts might be fastened therein, and not be fastened in the wall of the house.
7 And it was large, and went round mounting upward to the chambers: for the stairs of the house was mounting upward, round about the house: therefore the house was larger upward: so they went up from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst.
8 I saw also the house high round about: the foundations of the chambers were a full reed of six great cubits.
9 The thickness of the wall which was for the chamber without, was five cubits, and that which remained, was the place of the chambers that were within.
10 And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits round about the House on every side.
11 And the doors of the chambers were toward the place that remained, one door toward the North, and another door toward the South, and the breadth of the place that remained, was five cubits round about.
12 Now the building that was before the separate place toward the West corner, was seventy cubits broad, and the wall of the building was five cubits thick round about, and the length ninety cubits.
13 So he measured the house an hundred cubits long, and the separate place and the building with the walls thereof were an hundred cubits long.
14 Also the breadth of the forefront of the house and of the separate place toward the East, was an hundred cubits.
15 And he measured the length of the building over against the separate place, which was behind it, and the chambers on the one side and on the other side an hundred cubits with the Temple within, and the arches of the court.
16 The posts and the narrow windows, and the chambers round about, on three sides over against the posts, ceiled with cedar wood round about, and from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were ceiled.
17 And from above the door unto the inner house and without, and by all the wall round about within and without it was ceiled according to the measure.
18 And it was made with Cherubims and palm trees, so that a palm tree was between a Cherub and a Cherub: and every Cherub had two faces.
19 So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a lion toward the palm tree on the other side: thus was it made through all the house round about.
20 From the ground unto above the door were Cherubims, and palm trees made as in the wall of the Temple.
21 The posts of the Temple were squared, and thus to look unto was the similitude and form of the Sanctuary.
22 The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length thereof two cubits, and the corners thereof and the length thereof and the sides thereof were of wood. And he said unto me, This is the Table that shall be before the Lord.
23 And the Temple and the Sanctuary had two doors.
24 And the doors had two wickets, even two turning wickets, two wickets for one door, and two wickets for another door.
25 And upon the doors of the Temple there were made Cherubims and palm trees, like as was made upon the walls, and there were thick planks upon the forefront of the porch without.
26 And there were narrow windows and palm trees on the one side, and on the other side, by the sides of the porch, and upon the sides of the house, and thick planks.
