The pavement ran along the side of the gates, corresponding to the length of the gates; this was the lower pavement.
Then he measured the distance from the inner front of the lower gate to the outer front of the inner court, one hundred cubits.
Then he measured the gate of the outer court that faced north—its depth and width.
Its recesses, three on either side, and its pilasters and its vestibule were of the same size as those of the first gate; its depth was fifty cubits, and its width twenty-five cubits.
Its windows, its vestibule, and its palm trees were of the same size as those of the gate that faced toward the east. Seven steps led up to it; and its vestibule was on the inside.
Opposite the gate on the north, as on the east, was a gate to the inner court; he measured from gate to gate, one hundred cubits.
Then he led me toward the south, and there was a gate on the south; and he measured its pilasters and its vestibule; they had the same dimensions as the others.
There were windows all around in it and in its vestibule, like the windows of the others; its depth was fifty cubits, and its width twenty-five cubits.
There were seven steps leading up to it; its vestibule was on the inside. It had palm trees on its pilasters, one on either side.
There was a gate on the south of the inner court; and he measured from gate to gate toward the south, one hundred cubits.
Then he brought me to the inner court by the south gate, and he measured the south gate; it was of the same dimensions as the others.
