New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the man led me north out into the outer courtyard and to the rooms across from the private area and the building. 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 These rooms on the north side were one hundred seventy-five feet long and eighty-seven and one-half feet wide. 2 The building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide.
3 There was thirty-five feet of the inner courtyard between them and the Temple. On the other side, they faced the stone pavement of the outer courtyard. The rooms were built in three stories like steps and had balconies. 3 Both in the section twenty cubits from the inner court and in the section opposite the pavement of the outer court, gallery faced gallery at the three levels.
4 There was a path on the north side of the rooms, which was seventeen and one-half feet wide and one hundred seventy-five feet long. Doors led into the rooms from this path. 4 In front of the rooms was an inner passageway ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long. Their doors were on the north.
5 The top rooms were narrower, because the balconies took more space from them. The rooms on the first and second stories of the building were wider. 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 were on three stories. They did not have pillars like the pillars of the courtyards. So the top rooms were farther back than those on the first and second stories. 6 The rooms on the third floor had no pillars, as the courts had; so they were smaller in floor space than those on the lower and middle floors.
7 There was a wall outside parallel to the rooms and to the outer courtyard. It ran in front of the rooms for eighty-seven and one-half feet. 7 There was an outer wall parallel to the rooms and the outer court; it extended in front of the rooms for fifty cubits.
8 The row of rooms along the outer courtyard was eighty-seven and one-half feet long, and the rooms that faced the Temple were about one hundred seventy-five feet long. 8 While the row of rooms on the side next to the outer court was fifty cubits long, the row on the side nearest the sanctuary was a hundred cubits long.
9 The lower rooms had an entrance on the east side so a person could enter them from the outer courtyard, 9 The lower rooms had an entrance on the east side as one enters them from the outer court.
10 at the start of the wall beside the courtyard. There were rooms on the south side, which were across from the private area and the building. 10 On the south side along the length of the wall of the outer court, adjoining the temple courtyard and opposite the outer wall, were rooms
11 These rooms had a path in front of them. They were like the rooms on the north with the same length and width and the same doors. 11 with a passageway in front of them. These were like the rooms on the north; they had the same length and width, with similar exits and dimensions. Similar to the doorways on the north
12 The doors of the south rooms were like the doors of the north rooms. There was an entrance at the open end of a path beside the wall, so a person could enter at the east end. 12 were the doorways of the rooms on the south. There was a doorway at the beginning of the passageway that was parallel to the corresponding wall extending eastward, by which one enters the rooms.
13 The man said to me, "The north and south rooms across from the private area are holy rooms. There the priests who go near the Lord will eat the most holy offerings. There they will put the most holy offerings: the grain offerings, sin offerings, and the penalty offerings, because the place is holy. 13 Then he said to me, "The north and south rooms facing the temple courtyard are the priests' rooms, where the priests who approach the LORD will eat the most holy offerings. There they will put the most holy offerings--the grain offerings, the sin offerings and the guilt offerings--for the place is holy.
14 The priests who enter the Holy Place must leave their serving clothes there before they go into the outer courtyard, because these clothes are holy. After they put on other clothes, they may go to the part of the Temple area which is for the people." 14 Once the priests enter the holy precincts, they are not to go into the outer court until they leave behind the garments in which they minister, for these are holy. They are to put on other clothes before they go near the places that are for the people."
15 When the man finished measuring inside the Temple area, he brought me out through the east gateway. He measured the area all around. 15 When he had finished measuring what was inside the temple area, he led me out by the east gate and measured the area all around:
16 The man measured the east side with the measuring stick; it was eight hundred seventy-five feet by the measuring stick. 16 He measured the east side with the measuring rod; it was five hundred cubits.
17 He measured the north side; it was eight hundred seventy-five feet by the measuring stick. 17 He measured the north side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
18 He measured the south side; it was eight hundred seventy-five feet by the measuring stick. 18 He measured the south side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
19 He went around to the west side; it measured eight hundred seventy-five feet by the measuring stick. 19 Then he turned to the west side and measured; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
20 So he measured the Temple area on all four sides. The Temple area had a wall all around it that was eight hundred seventy-five feet long and eight hundred seventy-five feet wide. It separated what was holy from that which was not holy. 20 So he measured the area on all four sides. It had a wall around it, five hundred cubits long and five hundred cubits wide, to separate the holy from the common.
