1 Then he abrought me to the bnave and measured the cside pillars; six cubits wide on each side was the width of the side pillar. 2 The width of the entrance was ten cubits and the sides of the entrance were five cubits on each side. And he measured the length of the nave, aforty cubits, and the width, atwenty cubits. 3 Then he went ainside and measured each bside pillar of the doorway, two cubits, and the doorway, six cubits high; and the width of the doorway, seven cubits. 4 He measured its length, atwenty cubits, and the width, twenty cubits, before the bnave; and he said to me, "This is the cmost holy place." 5 Then he measured the wall of the temple, six cubits; and the width of the aside chambers, four cubits, all around about the house on every side. 6 aThe side chambers were in three stories, one above another, and thirty in each story; and the side chambers bextended to the wall which stood on their inward side all around, that they might be fastened, and not be fastened into the wall of the temple itself. 7 The side chambers surrounding the temple were wider at each successive story. Because the astructure surrounding the temple went upward by stages on all sides of the temple, therefore the width of the temple increased as it went higher; and thus one went up from the lowest story to the highest by way of the second story. 8 I saw also that the house had a raised platform all around; the foundations of the side chambers were a full rod of asix long cubits in height. 9 The thickness of the outer wall of the side chambers was five cubits. But the afree space between the side chambers belonging to the temple 10 and the outer achambers was twenty cubits in width all around the temple on every side. 11 The doorways of the side chambers toward the afree space consisted of one doorway toward the north and another doorway toward the south; and the width of the afree space was five cubits all around. 12 The abuilding that was in front of the bseparate area at the side toward the west was seventy cubits wide; and the wall of the building was five cubits thick all around, and its length was ninety cubits. 13 Then he measured the temple, a ahundred cubits long; the bseparate area with the cbuilding and its walls were also a ahundred cubits long. 14 Also the width of the front of the temple and that of the separate areas along the east side totaled a hundred cubits. 15 He measured the length of the abuilding along the front of the bseparate area behind it, with a cgallery on each side, a hundred cubits; he also measured the inner nave and the porches of the court. 16 The athresholds, the blatticed windows and the cgalleries round about their dthree stories, opposite the threshold, were epaneled with wood all around, and from the ground to the windows (but the windows were covered), 17 over the entrance, and to the inner house, and on the outside, and on all the wall all around inside and outside, by measurement. 18 It was carved with acherubim and bpalm trees; and a palm tree was between cherub and cherub, and every cherub had two faces, 19 a aman's face toward the palm tree on one side and a young alion's face toward the palm tree on the other side; they were carved on all the house all around. 20 From the ground to above the entrance acherubim and apalm trees were carved, as well as on the wall of the nave. 21 The adoorposts of the bnave were square; as for the front of the sanctuary, the appearance of one doorpost was like that of the other. 22 The aaltar was of wood, three cubits high and its length two cubits; its corners, its base and its sides were of wood. And he said to me, "This is the btable that is before the Lord." 23 The anave and the bsanctuary each had a double cdoor. 24 Each of the doors had two leaves, two aswinging leaves; two leaves for one door and two leaves for the other. 25 Also there were carved on them, on the doors of the nave, acherubim and apalm trees like those carved on the walls; and there was a bthreshold of wood on the front of the porch outside. 26 There were alatticed windows and bpalm trees on one side and on the other, on the sides of the cporch; thus were the dside chambers of the house and the thresholds.
