Ezekiel 42 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
42 Of the chambers of the Temple for the Priests, and the holy things.
1 Then brought he me into the utter court by 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 it was fifty cubits broad.
3 Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and over against the pavement, which was for the utter court, was chamber against chamber in three rows.
4 And before the chambers was a gallery of ten cubits wide, and within was a way of one cubit, and their doors toward the North.
5 Now the chambers above were narrower: for those chambers seemed to eat up these, to wit, the lower, and those that were in the midst of the building.
6 For they were in three rows, but had not pillars as the pillars of the court: therefore there was a difference from them beneath and from the middlemost, even from the ground.
7 And the wall that was without over against the chambers, toward the utter court on the forefront of the chambers, was fifty cubits long.
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 under these chambers was the entry, on the East side, as one goeth into them from the outward 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 after the manner of the chambers, which were toward the North, as long as they, and as broad as they: and all their entries were like, 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 corner of the way, even the way directly before the wall toward the East, as one entereth.
13 Then said he unto me, The North chambers and the South chambers which are before the separate place, they be holy chambers wherein 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, they shall 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 so 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 rod, five hundred reeds even with the measuring reed round about.
17 He measured also the North side, five hundred reeds, even with the measuring reed round about.
18 And he measured the South [a]side five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
19 He turned about also 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.
