Ezekiel 42

NLT 1 Then the man led me out of the Temple courtyard by way of the north gateway. We entered the outer courtyard and came to a group of rooms against the north wall of the inner courtyard. NIV 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. NLT 2 This structure, whose entrance opened toward the north, was 175 feet long and 87 feet wide. NIV 2 The building whose door faced north was a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide. NLT 3 One block of rooms overlooked the 35-foot width of the inner courtyard. Another block of rooms looked out onto the pavement of the outer courtyard. The two blocks were built three levels high and stood across from each other. NIV 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. NLT 4 Between the two blocks of rooms ran a walkway 17 feet wide. It extended the entire 175 feet of the complex, and all the doors faced north. NIV 4 In front of the rooms was an inner passageway ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long. Their doors were on the north. NLT 5 Each of the two upper levels of rooms was narrower than the one beneath it because the upper levels had to allow space for walkways in front of them. NIV 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. NLT 6 Since there were three levels and they did not have supporting columns as in the courtyards, each of the upper levels was set back from the level beneath it. NIV 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. NLT 7 There was an outer wall that separated the rooms from the outer courtyard; it was 87 feet long. NIV 7 There was an outer wall parallel to the rooms and the outer court; it extended in front of the rooms for fifty cubits. NLT 8 This wall added length to the outer block of rooms, which extended for only 87 feet, while the inner block—the rooms toward the Temple—extended for 175 feet. NIV 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. NLT 9 There was an eastern entrance from the outer courtyard to these rooms. NIV 9 The lower rooms had an entrance on the east side as one enters them from the outer court. NLT 10 On the south side of the Temple there were two blocks of rooms just south of the inner courtyard between the Temple and the outer courtyard. These rooms were arranged just like the rooms on the north. NIV 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 NLT 11 There was a walkway between the two blocks of rooms just like the complex on the north side of the Temple. This complex of rooms was the same length and width as the other one, and it had the same entrances and doors. The dimensions of each were identical. NIV 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 NLT 12 So there was an entrance in the wall facing the doors of the inner block of rooms, and another on the east at the end of the interior walkway. NIV 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. NLT 13 Then the man told me, “These rooms that overlook the Temple from the north and south are holy. Here the priests who offer sacrifices to the will eat the most holy offerings. And because these rooms are holy, they will be used to store the sacred offerings—the grain offerings, sin offerings, and guilt offerings. NIV 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. NLT 14 When the priests leave the sanctuary, they must not go directly to the outer courtyard. They must first take off the clothes they wore while ministering, because these clothes are holy. They must put on other clothes before entering the parts of the building complex open to the public.” NIV 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." NLT 15 When the man had finished measuring the inside of the Temple area, he led me out through the east gateway to measure the entire perimeter. NIV 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: NLT 16 He measured the east side with his measuring rod, and it was 875 feet long. NIV 16 He measured the east side with the measuring rod; it was five hundred cubits. NLT 17 Then he measured the north side, and it was also 875 feet. NIV 17 He measured the north side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod. NLT 18 The south side was also 875 feet, NIV 18 He measured the south side; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod. NLT 19 and the west side was also 875 feet. NIV 19 Then he turned to the west side and measured; it was five hundred cubits by the measuring rod. NLT 20 So the area was 875 feet on each side with a wall all around it to separate what was holy from what was common. NIV 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.
