Then he led me to the south side and I saw the south gate. He measured its jambs and its portico, and they had the same measurements1 as the others.
The gateway and its portico had narrow openings all around, like the openings of the others. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide.226
Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them; it had palm tree decorations on the faces of the projecting walls on each side.327
The inner court4 also had a gate facing south, and he measured from this gate to the outer gate on the south side; it was a hundred cubits.5
