Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 He brought me to the main hall, and he measured the arches. They were nine feet deep on both sides, so that was also the depth of the tent. 1 Then the man brought me to the outer sanctuary and measured the jambs; the width of the jambs was six cubits on each side.
2 The entrance was fifteen feet wide, and the facades on either side of the entrance were seven and a half feet. When he measured its length, it was sixty feet, and its width was thirty feet. 2 The entrance was ten cubits wide, and the projecting walls on each side of it were five cubits wide. He also measured the outer sanctuary; it was forty cubits long and twenty cubits wide.
3 Then he went into the inner room, and he measured the arches on both sides of the entrance; they were each three feet. The entrance was nine feet wide, and its depth was ten and a half feet. 3 Then he went into the inner sanctuary and measured the jambs of the entrance; each was two cubits wide. The entrance was six cubits wide, and the projecting walls on each side of it were seven cubits wide.
4 When he measured the length of the inner room, it was thirty feet, and the width of the side adjoining the main hall was also thirty feet. He said to me, "This is the most holy place." 4 And he measured the length of the inner sanctuary; it was twenty cubits, and its width was twenty cubits across the end of the outer sanctuary. He said to me, "This is the Most Holy Place."
5 When he measured the wall of the temple, it was nine feet, and the side chambers that went all the way around the temple were six feet. 5 Then he measured the wall of the temple; it was six cubits thick, and each side room around the temple was four cubits wide.
6 Now these side chambers adjoined each other, thirty chambers in three stories. The side chambers had a ledge in the temple wall all the way around to serve as supports, but these supports were not inserted into the temple wall itself. 6 The side rooms were on three levels, one above another, thirty on each level. There were ledges all around the wall of the temple to serve as supports for the side rooms, so that the supports were not inserted into the wall of the temple.
7 A wide ramp ascended stage by stage to the side chambers all the way around the temple. In this way, the ascent stage by stage all around the temple added to the temple's width. One ascended from the foundation to the top by way of the middle story. 7 The side rooms all around the temple were wider at each successive level. The structure surrounding the temple was built in ascending stages, so that the rooms widened as one went upward. A stairway went up from the lowest floor to the top floor through the middle floor.
8 Then I looked at the temple: Its roof all around rested on the side chambers. Each raised section was ten and a half feet, and the indentations between them were nine feet. 8 I saw that the temple had a raised base all around it, forming the foundation of the side rooms. It was the length of the rod, six long cubits.
9 The width of the outer wall of the side chambers was seven and a half feet. The space left free between the temple's side chambers and 9 The outer wall of the side rooms was five cubits thick. The open area between the side rooms of the temple
10 the other chambers was thirty feet wide all the way around the temple. 10 and the [ priests'] rooms was twenty cubits wide all around the temple.
11 There were two entrances from the side chambers to the free space, one facing north, the other facing south. And the width of the place that was left free was seven and a half feet all the way around. 11 There were entrances to the side rooms from the open area, one on the north and another on the south; and the base adjoining the open area was five cubits wide all around.
12 The structure facing the yard on the west was one hundred five feet wide. The structure's wall was seven and a half feet wide all the way around, and its length was one hundred thirty-five feet. 12 The building facing the temple courtyard on the west side was seventy cubits wide. The wall of the building was five cubits thick all around, and its length was ninety cubits.
13 Then he measured the temple. It was one hundred fifty feet long. The yard, the structure, and its walls were also one hundred fifty feet. 13 Then he measured the temple; it was a hundred cubits long, and the temple courtyard and the building with its walls were also a hundred cubits long.
14 The area in front of the house and the yard to the east was one hundred fifty feet also. 14 The width of the temple courtyard on the east, including the front of the temple, was a hundred cubits.
15 Then he measured the length of the structure along the side of the yard, including its promenades on both sides: one hundred fifty feet. Now the interior of the main hall as well as the porches in the courtyard 15 Then he measured the length of the building facing the courtyard at the rear of the temple, including its galleries on each side; it was a hundred cubits. The outer sanctuary, the inner sanctuary and the portico facing the court,
16 were paneled all around, including the ceilings, closed windows, and its three courses of promenades adjoined the ceiling. From the ground up to the windows was covered. 16 as well as the thresholds and the narrow windows and galleries around the three of them--everything beyond and including the threshold was covered with wood. The floor, the wall up to the windows, and the windows were covered.
17 Above the entrance, from the interior to the exterior of the temple, and on every interior and exterior wall, 17 In the space above the outside of the entrance to the inner sanctuary and on the walls at regular intervals all around the inner and outer sanctuary
18 there were carved winged creatures and palm trees. The palm trees were positioned between the winged creatures, and each winged creature had two faces. 18 were carved cherubim and palm trees. Palm trees alternated with cherubim. Each cherub had two faces:
19 A human face turned toward one palm tree, and the face of a lion turned toward another. They were carved on the temple all the way around. 19 the face of a man toward the palm tree on one side and the face of a lion toward the palm tree on the other. They were carved all around the whole temple.
20 From the ground to above the entrance, the walls of the main hall were carved with winged creatures and palm trees. 20 From the floor to the area above the entrance, cherubim and palm trees were carved on the wall of the outer sanctuary.
21 In the main hall itself, there were square doorposts in front of the holy place, where there was the appearance of 21 The outer sanctuary had a rectangular doorframe, and the one at the front of the Most Holy Place was similar.
22 the altar. It was four and a half feet high and three feet wide. It was made of wood, and its corners, base, and sides were also wood. He said to me, "This is the table that stands before the LORD." 22 There was a wooden altar three cubits high and two cubits square; its corners, its base and its sides were of wood. The man said to me, "This is the table that is before the LORD."
23 The main hall and the holy place each had two doors, 23 Both the outer sanctuary and the Most Holy Place had double doors.
24 and each door had two turning panels, two for one door and two for the other. 24 Each door had two leaves--two hinged leaves for each door.
25 Like the walls, the doors of the main hall were carved with winged creatures and palm trees. A single luxuriant tree stood outside, in front of the porch, 25 And on the doors of the outer sanctuary were carved cherubim and palm trees like those carved on the walls, and there was a wooden overhang on the front of the portico.
26 while closed windows and palm trees decorated both sides of the facade of the porch, the temple's side chambers, and the beams. 26 On the sidewalls of the portico were narrow windows with palm trees carved on each side. The side rooms of the temple also had overhangs.
