Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then he brought me forth into the outer court, the way toward the north; and he brought me into the chamber that was opposite the separate place and which was before the building toward 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 Along the length of a hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was fifty cubits. 2 The building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide.
3 Opposite the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and opposite the pavement which was for the outer court, was gallery upon gallery in three stories. 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 walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way of one cubit, and their doors toward 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 Now the upper chambers were shorter; for the galleries were higher than these -- than the lower and than the middlemost 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 were in three stories, but had not pillars as the pillars of the courts; therefore the upper building was narrowed more than the lowest and the middlemost 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 And the wall that was outside opposite the chambers, toward the outer court on the forepart of the chambers, the length thereof 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 that were in the outer court was fifty cubits; and lo, those before the temple were 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 from under these chambers was the entry on the east side, as one goeth 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 The chambers were within the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, opposite the separate place and opposite 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 the walk before them was like the appearance of the chambers which were toward the north, as long as they and as broad as they; and all their exits were both according to their fashions, and according to 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 And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward the south was a door in the head of the walk, the passage directly before the wall toward the east as one entereth into 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 Then said he unto me, "The north chambers and the south chambers, which are in front of the separate place, they are holy chambers where the priests who approach unto the LORD shall eat the most holy things. There shall they lay the most holy things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass 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 When the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of the holy place into the outer court; but there they shall lay their garments wherein they minister, for they are holy; and they shall put on other garments and shall approach those things which are 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 Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it 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 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 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 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 18 He measured the south side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod.
19 He turned about to the west side and 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 He measured it on the four sides; it had a wall round about, five hundred reeds long and five hundred broad, to make a separation between the sanctuary 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.
