The Rooms for the Priests

1 Then the man led me northward into the outer court and brought me to the rooms opposite the temple courtyard and opposite the outer wall on the north side.
2 The building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide.a
3 Both in the section twenty cubitsb from the inner court and in the section opposite the pavement of the outer court, gallery faced gallery at the three levels.
4 In front of the rooms was an inner passageway ten cubits wide and a hundred cubitsc long.d Their doors were on the north.
5 Now the upper rooms were narrower, for the galleries took more space from them than from the rooms on the lower and middle floors of the building.
6 The rooms on the top floor had no pillars, as the courts had; so they were smaller in floor space than those on the lower and middle floors.
