Ezekiel 42:1-9 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

The Temple's Chambers

42 Then he led me out into the outer court, towards the north, and he brought me to the chambers that were opposite the separate yard and opposite the building on the north. The length of the building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits,[a] and the breadth fifty cubits. Facing the twenty cubits that belonged to the inner court, and facing the pavement that belonged to the outer court, was gallery[b] against gallery in three storeys. And before the chambers was a passage inwards, ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long,[c] and their doors were on the north. Now the upper chambers were narrower, for the galleries took more away from them than from the lower and middle chambers of the building. For they were in three storeys, and they had no pillars like the pillars of the courts. Thus the upper chambers were set back from the ground more than the lower and the middle ones. And there was a wall outside parallel to the chambers, towards the outer court, opposite the chambers, fifty cubits long. For the chambers on the outer court were fifty cubits long, while those opposite the nave[d] were a hundred cubits long. Below these chambers was an entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court.
