Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he led me out into the outermore foreyard, by the way leading to the north; and he led me into the chamber, that was against the building separated, and against the house going to the north; (And he led me out to the outer courtyard, by the way leading to the north; and he led me into the room that was facing the open space, and the building/s to the north;) 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 in the face, an hundred cubits of length of the (side of the) door of the north, and fifty cubits of breadth, (on its front, the side of the door on the north was a hundred cubits in length, and fifty cubits in breadth,) 2 The building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide.
3 (over) against twenty cubits of the inner foreyard, and (over) against the pavement arrayed with stone of the outermore foreyard, where a porch was joined to (a) three-fold porch. 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 And before the chambers was a walking (place) of ten cubits of breadth, beholding to the inner things of the way of one (hundred) cubit(s). And the doors of those to the north, (And before the rooms was a walking place of ten cubits in breadth, and a length of one hundred cubits, facing the inner courtyard. And their doors, or their entrances, faced north,) 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 where (the) chambers were lower in the higher things; for those bare up the porches that appeared on high of those from the lower things, and from the middle things of the building. 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 For those were of three stages, and had not pillars, as were the pillars of [the] foreyards; therefore those stood on high from the lower things, and from the middle things from [the] earth, by fifty cubits. (For they were of three stages, and did not have pillars, like the pillars of the courtyards; and so they stood on high from the ground, from the lower things, and from the middle things.) 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 And the outermore hall closing the walking place was by the chambers, that were in the way of the outermore foreyard, before the chambers; the length thereof was of fifty cubits. (And the outside wall enclosing the walking place was by the rooms, that were on the way of the outer courtyard, and in front of the rooms; its length was fifty cubits.) 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 For the length of the chambers of the outermore foreyard was of fifty cubits, and the length before the face of the temple was of an hundred cubits. (For the length of the rooms of the outer courtyard was fifty cubits, and the length of the rooms facing the Temple was a hundred cubits.) 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 And under these chambers was an entering from the east, of men entering into those, from the outermore foreyard, (And under these rooms was an entrance from the east, for people entering into 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 in the breadth of the wall of the foreyard that was (over) against the east way, into the face of the building separated. And (the) chambers were before the building, (in the breadth of the wall of the courtyard that was facing east, opposite the open space, and the building. And the rooms were in the front of 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 and a way was before the face of those, by the likeness of (the) chambers that were in the way of the north; by the length of those, so was also the breadth of those. And all the entering of those, and the likenesses and the doors of those, (and a way was in front of them, like the rooms that were facing north; their length was like their breadth. And all their entrances, and their forms, and their 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 were like the doors of (the) chambers that were in the way beholding to the south; a door was in the head of the way, which way was before the porch separated to men entering by the east way. (were like the doors of the rooms that were facing south; a door was at the head of the way, which way was in front of the porch for people entering from the east.) 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 And he said to me, The chambers of the north, and the chambers of the south, that be before the building separated, these be holy chambers, in which the priests be clothed, that nigh to the Lord into the holy of holy things; there they shall put the holy of holy things, and offerings for sin, and for trespass; for it is an holy place. (And he said to me, The rooms of the north, and the rooms of the south, that face the open space, these be the holy rooms, in which the priests, who come near to the Lord, may eat the holy offerings; yea, they shall put the holy offerings, and the sin offerings, and the trespass offerings there; for it is a holy place.) 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 Soothly when priests have entered, they shall not go out of (the) holy things into the outermore foreyard; and there they shall put up their clothes in which they minister, for those be holy; and they shall be clothed in other clothes, and so they shall go forth to the people. (And when the priests have entered, they shall not go out of the Holy Place, or out of the Temple, into the outer courtyard, until they have put away, or have left, their clothes there, in which they minister, for those clothes be holy; and after that they be clothed in other clothes, then they shall go out to 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 And when he had filled the measures of the inner house, he led me out by the way of the gate that beheld to the east way; and he meted it on each side by compass. (And when he had finished the measurements of the inner temple, he led me out by the gateway that faced east; and he measured it on each side 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 Forsooth he meted against the east wind with the reed of measure, by compass five hundred reeds [five hundred rods], in a reed of measure by compass. (And he measured the east side with the measuring rod, five hundred cubits in length.) 16 He measured the east side with the measuring rod; it was five hundred cubits.
17 And he meted against the wind of the north five hundred reeds [five hundred rods], in the reed of measure by compass. (And he measured the north side with the measuring rod, five hundred cubits in length.) 17 He measured the north side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
18 And at the south wind he meted five hundred reeds [five hundred rods], with a reed of measure by compass. (And he measured the south side with the measuring rod, five hundred cubits in length.) 18 He measured the south side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
19 And at the west wind he meted five hundred reeds [five hundred rods], with the reed of measure. (And he measured the west side with the measuring rod, five hundred cubits in length.) 19 Then he turned to the west side and measured; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
20 By (the) four winds he meted the wall thereof on each side by compass, the length of five hundred [cubits], and the breadth of five hundred [cubits], (the wall) separating betwixt the saintuary and the place of the common people. (On all four sides he measured its wall, on each side all around, the length of five hundred cubits, and the breadth of five hundred cubits. The wall was to separate the place for the sanctuary, from the place for the common people.) 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.
