Bible: Ezekiel 41
The Inner Temple
41:1 Then he brought me to the outer sanctuary, and measured the jambs; the jambs were 10½ feet 1 wide on each side. 41:2 The width of the entrance was 17½ feet, 2 and the sides 3 of the entrance were 8¾ feet 4 on each side. He measured the length of the outer sanctuary as 70 feet, 5 and its width as 35 feet. 6
41:3 Then he went into the inner sanctuary and measured the jambs of the entrance as 3½ feet, 7 the entrance as 10½ feet, 8 and the width of the entrance as 12¼ feet 9 41:4 Then he measured its length as 35 feet, 10 and its width as 35 feet, 11 before the outer sanctuary. He said to me, “This is the most holy place.”
41:5 Then he measured the wall of the temple 12 as 10½ feet, 13 and the width of the side chambers as 7 feet, 14 all around the temple. 41:6 The side chambers were in three stories, one above the other, thirty in each story. There were offsets in the wall all around to serve as supports for the side chambers, so that the supports were not in the wall of the temple. 41:7 The side chambers surrounding the temple were wider at each successive story; 15 for the structure 16 surrounding the temple went up story by story all around the temple. For this reason the width of the temple increased as it went up, and one went up from the lowest story to the highest by the way of the middle story.
41:8 I saw that the temple had a raised platform all around; the foundations of the side chambers were a full measuring stick 17 of 10½ feet 18 high. 41:9 The width of the outer wall of the side chambers was 8¾ feet, 19 and the open area between the side chambers of the temple 41:10 and the chambers of the court was 35 feet 20 in width all around the temple on every side. 41:11 There were entrances from the side chambers toward the open area, one entrance toward the north, and another entrance toward the south; the width of the open area was 8¾ feet 21 all around.
41:13 Then he measured the temple as 175 feet 25 long, the courtyard of the temple and the building and its walls as 175 feet 26 long, 41:14 and also the width of the front of the temple and the courtyard on the east as 175 feet. 27
41:15 Then he measured the length of the building facing the courtyard at the rear of the temple, with its galleries on either side as 175 feet. 28
The interior of the outer sanctuary and the porch of the court, 29 41:16 as well as the thresholds, narrow windows and galleries all around on three sides facing the threshold were paneled with wood all around, from the ground up to the windows (now the windows were covered), 41:17 to the space above the entrance, to the inner room, and on the outside, and on all the walls in the inner room and outside, by measurement. 30 41:18 It was made with cherubim and decorative palm trees, with a palm tree between each cherub. Each cherub had two faces: 41:19 a human face toward the palm tree on one side and a lion’s face toward the palm tree on the other side. They were carved on the whole temple all around; 41:20 from the ground to the area above the entrance, cherubim and decorative palm trees were carved on the wall of the outer sanctuary. 41:21 The doorposts of the outer sanctuary were square. In front of the sanctuary one doorpost looked just like the other. 41:22 The altar was of wood, 5¼ feet 31 high, with its length 3½ feet; 32 its corners, its length, 33 and its walls were of wood. He said to me, “This is the table that is before the
