Then he 1brought me out into the 2outercourt, the way3toward the north; and he brought me to the 4chamberwhich was opposite the 5separatearea and opposite the 6buildingtoward the north.
2Along the length, which was a 7hundredcubits, was the northdoor; the width was fiftycubits.
3Opposite the 8twenty cubits which belonged to the innercourt, and opposite the 9pavementwhich belonged to the outercourt, was a10gallerycorresponding to bgallery in three stories.
4Before the 11chambers was an innerwalktencubitswide, a way of one hundred cubits; and their openings were on the north.
Now the upperchambers were csmallerbecause the d12galleriestookmore space away from them than from the lower and middleones in the building.
For they were in 13three stories and hadnopillars like the pillars of the courts; therefore the upper chambers were esetback from the ground upward, morethan the lower and middleones.
As for the 14outerwall by the side of the chambers, toward the outercourtfacing the chambers, its length was fiftycubits.
For the length of the chamberswhich were in the outercourt was fiftycubits; and behold, the length of those facing the temple was a 15hundredcubits.
9Belowthesechambers was the 16entrance on the eastside, as one enters them from the outercourt.
In the fthickness of the 17wall of the courttoward the east, facing the 18separatearea and facing the building, there were 19chambers.
The 20way in front of them was like the appearance of the chamberswhich were on the north, according to their lengthso was their width, and all their exits were both according to their arrangements and openings.
Corresponding to the openings of the chamberswhich were toward the south was an opening at the head of the way, the way in front of the 21walltoward the east, as one enters them.
Then he said to me, "The northchambers and the southchambers, which are opposite the 22separatearea, they are the 23holychamberswhere the priestswho are 24near to the LORD shall eat the 25mostholythings. There they shall lay the mostholythings, the grain offering, the sinoffering and the guiltoffering; for the place is holy.
"When the priestsenter, then they shall not go out into the outercourt from the sanctuarygwithout 26layingthere their 27garments in which they minister, for they are holy. They shall put on othergarments; then they shall approach that which is for the people."
Now when he had finishedmeasuring the innerhouse, he brought me out by the way of the 28gatewhichfacedtoward the east and measured it allaround.
He measured on the eastside with the measuringreedfivehundredreeds by the 29measuringreed.
He measured on the northsidefivehundredreeds by the measuringreed.
On the southside he measuredfivehundredreeds with the measuringreed.
He turned to the westside and measuredfivehundredreeds with the measuringreed.
He measured it hon the foursides; it had a 30wallallaround, the 31lengthfivehundred and the 32widthfivehundred, to 33dividebetween the holy and the profane.
