Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he bringeth me forth unto the outer court, the way northward, and he bringeth me in unto the chamber that [is] over-against the separate place, and that [is] over-against the building at 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 At the front of the length [is] a hundred cubits [at] the north opening, and the breadth fifty cubits. 2 The building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide.
3 Over-against the twenty [cubits] that are to the inner court, and over-against the pavement that [is] to the outer court, [is] gallery over-against gallery, in the three [storeys]. 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 at the front of the chambers [is] a walk of ten cubits in breadth unto the inner part, a way of one cubit, and their openings [are] at the 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 And the upper chambers [are] short, for the galleries contain more than these, than the lower, and than the middle one, 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 they [are] threefold, and they have no pillars as the pillars of the court, therefore it hath been kept back -- more than the lower and than the middle one -- from the ground. 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 As to the wall that [is] at the outside, over-against the chambers, the way of the outer-court at the front of the chambers, its length [is] 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 that [are] to the outer court [is] fifty cubits, and of those on the front of the temple 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 [is] the entrance from the east, in one's going into them from the outer court. 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 court eastward, unto the front of the separate place, and unto the front of the building, [are] chambers. 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 the way before them [is] as the appearance of the chambers that [are] northward, according to their length so [is] their breadth, and all their outlets, and according to their fashions, and according to their openings. 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 And according to the openings of the chambers that [are] southward [is] an opening at the head of the way, the way directly in the front of the wall eastward in entering them. 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 saith unto me, `The north chambers, the south chambers, that [are] at the front of the separate place, they [are] holy chambers, where the priests (who [are] near to Jehovah) eat the most holy things, there they place the most holy things, and the present, and the sin-offering, and the guilt-offering, for 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 In the priests' going in, they come not out from the sanctuary unto the outer court, and there they place their garments with which they minister, for they [are] holy, and have put on other garments, and have drawn near unto that 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 And he hath finished the measurements of the inner house, and hath brought me forth the way of the gate whose front [is] eastward, and he hath measured it all round about. 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 He hath measured the east side with the measuring-reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring-reed round about. 16 He measured the east side with the measuring rod; it was five hundred cubits.
17 He hath measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about. 17 He measured the north side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
18 The south side he hath measured, five hundred reeds, with the measuring-reed. 18 He measured the south side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
19 He hath turned round unto the west side, he hath measured five hundred reeds with the measuring-reed. 19 Then he turned to the west side and measured; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
20 At the four sides he hath measured it, a wall [is] to it all round about, the length five hundred, and the breadth five hundred, to separate between the holy and the profane place. 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.
