Ezekiel 41
New Living Translation
41After that, the man brought me into the sanctuary of the Temple. He measured the walls on either side of its doorway, and they were 10 1/2 feet thick.H935H1964H4058H352H8337H520H7341H6311H8337H520H7341H6311H7341H168 2The doorway was 17 1/2 feet wide, and the walls on each side of it were 8 3/4 feet long. The sanctuary itself was 70 feet long and 35 feet wide.H7341H6607H6235H520H3802H6607H2568H520H2568H520H4058H753H705H520H7341H6242H520 3Then he went beyond the sanctuary into the inner room. He measured the walls on either side of its entrance, and they were 3 1/2 feet thick. The entrance was 10 1/2 feet wide, and the walls on each side of the entrance were 12 1/4 feet long.H935H6441H4058H352H6607H8147H520H6607H8337H520H7341H6607H7651H520 4The inner room of the sanctuary was 35 feet long and 35 feet wide. “This,” he told me, “is the Most Holy Place.”H4058H753H6242H520H7341H6242H520H6440H1964H559H6944H6944 5Then he measured the wall of the Temple, and it was 10 1/2 feet thick. There was a row of rooms along the outside wall; each room was 7 feet wide.H4058H7023H1004H8337H520H7341H6763H702H520H5439H1004H5439 6These side rooms were built in three levels, one above the other, with thirty rooms on each level. The supports for these side rooms rested on exterior ledges on the Temple wall; they did not extend into the wall.H6763H6763H7969H6763H7970H6471H935H7023H1004H6763H5439H270H270H7023H1004 7Each level was wider than the one below it, corresponding to the narrowing of the Temple wall as it rose higher. A stairway led up from the bottom level through the middle level to the top level.H7337H5437H4605H6763H4141H1004H4605H5439H1004H7341H1004H4605H5927H8481H5945H8484 8I saw that the Temple was built on a terrace, which provided a foundation for the side rooms. This terrace was 10 1/2 feet high.H7200H1363H1004H5439H4328H6763H4393H7070H8337H679H520 9The outer wall of the Temple’s side rooms was 8 3/4 feet thick. This left an open area between these side roomsH7341H7023H6763H2351H2568H520H3240H1004H6763H1004 10and the row of rooms along the outer wall of the inner courtyard. This open area was 35 feet wide, and it went all the way around the Temple.H3957H7341H6242H520H5439H1004H5439 11Two doors opened from the side rooms into the terrace yard, which was 8 3/4 feet wide. One door faced north and the other south.H6607H6763H3240H259H6607H1870H6828H259H6607H1864H7341H4725H3240H2568H520H5439 12A large building stood on the west, facing the Temple courtyard. It was 122 1/2 feet wide and 157 1/2 feet long, and its walls were 8 3/4 feet thick.H1146H6440H1508H6285H1870H3220H7657H520H7341H7023H1146H2568H520H7341H5439H753H8673H520 13Then the man measured the Temple, and it was 175 feet long. The courtyard around the building, including its walls, was an additional 175 feet in length.H4058H1004H3967H520H753H1508H1140H7023H3967H520H753 14The inner courtyard to the east of the Temple was also 175 feet wide.H7341H6440H1004H1508H6921H3967H520 15The building to the west, including its two walls, was also 175 feet wide. The sanctuary, the inner room, and the entry room of the TempleH4058H753H1146H6440H1508H310H862H3967H520H6442H1964H197H2691 16were all paneled with wood, as were the frames of the recessed windows. The inner walls of the Temple were paneled with wood above and below the windows.H5592H331H2474H862H5439H7969H5048H5592H7824H6086H5439H776H2474H2474H3680 17The space above the door leading into the inner room, and its walls inside and out, were also paneled.H6607H6442H1004H2351H7023H5439H6442H2435H4060 18All the walls were decorated with carvings of cherubim, each with two faces, and there was a carving of a palm tree between each of the cherubim.H6213H3742H8561H8561H3742H3742H3742H8147H6440 19One face—that of a man—looked toward the palm tree on one side. The other face—that of a young lion—looked toward the palm tree on the other side. The figures were carved all along the inside of the Temple,H6440H120H8561H6440H3715H8561H6213H1004H5439 20from the floor to the top of the walls, including the outer wall of the sanctuary.H776H6607H3742H8561H6213H7023H1964 21There were square columns at the entrance to the sanctuary, and the ones at the entrance of the Most Holy Place were similar.H4201H1964H7251H6440H6944H4758H4758 22There was an altar made of wood, 5 1/4 feet high and 3 1/2 feet across. Its corners, base, and sides were all made of wood. “This,” the man told me, “is the table that stands in the Lord’s presence.”H4196H6086H7969H520H1364H753H8147H520H4740H753H7023H6086H1696H7979H6440H3068 23Both the sanctuary and the Most Holy Place had double doorways,H1964H6944H8147H1817 24each with two swinging doors.H1817H8147H1817H8147H4142H1817H8147H259H1817H8147H1817H312 25The doors leading into the sanctuary were decorated with carved cherubim and palm trees, just as on the walls. And there was a wooden roof at the front of the entry room to the Temple.H6213H1817H1964H3742H8561H6213H7023H5646H6086H6440H197H2351 26On both sides of the entry room were recessed windows decorated with carved palm trees. The side rooms along the outside wall also had roofs.H331H2474H8561H3802H197H6763H1004H5646
