Ezekiel 40

NCV 1 It was the twenty-fifth year of our captivity, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth day of the month. It was in the fourteenth year after Jerusalem was captured. On that same day I felt the power of the Lord, and he brought me to Jerusalem. NIV 1 In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the fall of the city—on that very day the hand of the LORD was on me and he took me there. NCV 2 In the visions of God he brought me to the land of Israel and put me down on a very high mountain. On the south of the mountain there were some buildings that looked like a city. NIV 2 In visions of God he took me to the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, on whose south side were some buildings that looked like a city. NCV 3 He took me closer to the buildings, and I saw a man who looked as if he were made of bronze, standing in the gateway. He had a cord made of linen and a stick in his hand, both for measuring. NIV 3 He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand. NCV 4 The man said to me, "Human, look with your eyes and hear with your ears. Pay attention to all that I will show you, because that's why you have been brought here. Tell the people of Israel all that you see." NIV 4 The man said to me, “Son of man, look carefully and listen closely and pay attention to everything I am going to show you, for that is why you have been brought here. Tell the people of Israel everything you see.” NCV 5 I saw a wall that surrounded the Temple area. The measuring stick in the man's hand was ten and one-half feet long. So the man measured the wall, which was ten and one-half feet thick and ten and one-half feet high. NIV 5 I saw a wall completely surrounding the temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man’s hand was six long cubits, each of which was a cubit and a handbreadth. He measured the wall; it was one measuring rod thick and one rod high. NCV 6 Then the man went to the east gateway. He went up its steps and measured the opening of the gateway. It was ten and one-half feet deep. NIV 6 Then he went to the east gate. He climbed its steps and measured the threshold of the gate; it was one rod deep. NCV 7 The rooms for the guards were ten and one-half feet long and ten and one-half feet wide. The walls that came out between the guards' rooms were about nine feet thick. The opening of the gateway next to the porch that faced the Temple was ten and one-half feet deep. NIV 7 The alcoves for the guards were one rod long and one rod wide, and the projecting walls between the alcoves were five cubits thick. And the threshold of the gate next to the portico facing the temple was one rod deep. NCV 8 Then the man measured the porch of the gateway. NIV 8 Then he measured the portico of the gateway; NCV 9 It was about fourteen feet deep, and its side walls were three and one-half feet thick. The porch of the gateway faced the Temple. NIV 9 it was eight cubits deep and its jambs were two cubits thick. The portico of the gateway faced the temple. NCV 10 On each side of the east gateway were three rooms, which measured the same on each side. The walls between each room were the same thickness. NIV 10 Inside the east gate were three alcoves on each side; the three had the same measurements, and the faces of the projecting walls on each side had the same measurements. NCV 11 The man measured the width of the entrance to the gateway, which was seventeen and one-half feet wide. The width of the gate was about twenty-three feet. NIV 11 Then he measured the width of the entrance of the gateway; it was ten cubits and its length was thirteen cubits. NCV 12 And there was a low wall about twenty-one inches high in front of each room. The rooms were ten and one-half feet on each side. NIV 12 In front of each alcove was a wall one cubit high, and the alcoves were six cubits square. NCV 13 The man measured the gateway from the roof of one room to the roof of the opposite room. It was about forty-four feet from one door to the opposite door. NIV 13 Then he measured the gateway from the top of the rear wall of one alcove to the top of the opposite one; the distance was twenty-five cubits from one parapet opening to the opposite one. NCV 14 The man also measured the porch, which was about thirty-five feet wide. The courtyard was around the porch. NIV 14 He measured along the faces of the projecting walls all around the inside of the gateway—sixty cubits. The measurement was up to the portico facing the courtyard. NCV 15 From the front of the outer side of the gateway to the front of the porch of the inner side of the gateway was eighty-seven and one-half feet. NIV 15 The distance from the entrance of the gateway to the far end of its portico was fifty cubits. NCV 16 The rooms and porch had small windows on both sides. The windows were narrower on the side facing the gateway. Carvings of palm trees were on each side wall of the rooms. NIV 16 The alcoves and the projecting walls inside the gateway were surmounted by narrow parapet openings all around, as was the portico; the openings all around faced inward. The faces of the projecting walls were decorated with palm trees. NCV 17 Then the man brought me into the outer courtyard where I saw rooms and a pavement of stones all around the court. Thirty rooms were along the edge of the paved walkway. NIV 17 Then he brought me into the outer court. There I saw some rooms and a pavement that had been constructed all around the court; there were thirty rooms along the pavement. NCV 18 The pavement ran alongside the gates and was as deep as the gates were wide. This was the lower pavement. NIV 18 It abutted the sides of the gateways and was as wide as they were long; this was the lower pavement. NCV 19 Then the man measured from the outer wall to the inner wall. The outer court between these two walls was one hundred seventy-five feet on the east and on the north. NIV 19 Then he measured the distance from the inside of the lower gateway to the outside of the inner court; it was a hundred cubits on the east side as well as on the north. NCV 20 The man measured the length and width of the north gateway leading to the outer courtyard. NIV 20 Then he measured the length and width of the north gate, leading into the outer court. NCV 21 Its three rooms on each side, its inner walls, and its porch measured the same as the first gateway. It was eighty-seven and one-half feet long and forty-four feet wide. NIV 21 Its alcoves—three on each side—its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as those of the first gateway. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. NCV 22 Its windows, porch, and carvings of palm trees measured the same as the east gateway. Seven steps went up to the gateway, and the gateway's porch was at the inner end. NIV 22 Its openings, its portico and its palm tree decorations had the same measurements as those of the gate facing east. Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them. NCV 23 The inner courtyard had a gateway across from the northern gateway like the one on the east. The man measured it and found it was one hundred seventy-five feet from inner gateway to outer gateway. NIV 23 There was a gate to the inner court facing the north gate, just as there was on the east. He measured from one gate to the opposite one; it was a hundred cubits. NCV 24 Then the man led me south where I saw a gateway facing south. He measured its inner walls and its porch, and they measured the same as the other gateways. NIV 24 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 measurements as the others. NCV 25 The gateway and its porch had windows all around like the other gateways. It was eighty-seven and one-half feet long and forty-four feet wide. NIV 25 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. NCV 26 Seven steps went up to this gateway. Its porch was at the inner end, and it had carvings of palm trees on its inner walls. NIV 26 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. NCV 27 The inner courtyard had a gateway on its south side. The man measured from gate to gate on the south side, which was one hundred seventy-five feet. NIV 27 The inner court 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. NCV 28 Then the man brought me through the south gateway into the inner courtyard. The inner south gateway measured the same as the gateways in the outer wall. NIV 28 Then he brought me into the inner court through the south gate, and he measured the south gate; it had the same measurements as the others. NCV 29 The inner south gateway's rooms, inner walls, and porch measured the same as the gateways in the outer wall. There were windows all around the gateway and its porch. The gateway was eighty-seven and one-half feet long and forty-four feet wide. NIV 29 Its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as the others. The gateway and its portico had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. NCV 30 Each porch of each inner gateway was about forty-four feet long and about nine feet wide. NIV 30 (The porticoes of the gateways around the inner court were twenty-five cubits wide and five cubits deep.) NCV 31 The inner south gateway's porch faced the outer courtyard. Carvings of palm trees were on its side walls, and its stairway had eight steps. NIV 31 Its portico faced the outer court; palm trees decorated its jambs, and eight steps led up to it. NCV 32 The man brought me into the inner courtyard on the east side. He measured the inner east gateway, and it was the same as the other gateways. NIV 32 Then he brought me to the inner court on the east side, and he measured the gateway; it had the same measurements as the others. NCV 33 The inner east gateway's rooms, inside walls, and porch measured the same as the other gateways. Windows were all around the gateway and its porch. The inner east gateway was eighty-seven and one-half feet long and forty-four feet wide. NIV 33 Its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as the others. The gateway and its portico had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. NCV 34 Its porch faced the outer courtyard. Carvings of palm trees were on its inner walls on each side, and its stairway had eight steps. NIV 34 Its portico faced the outer court; palm trees decorated the jambs on either side, and eight steps led up to it. NCV 35 Then the man brought me to the inner north gateway. He measured it, and it was the same as the other gateways. NIV 35 Then he brought me to the north gate and measured it. It had the same measurements as the others, NCV 36 Its rooms, inner walls, and porch measured the same as the other gateways. There were windows all around the gateway, which was eighty-seven and one-half feet long and forty-four feet wide. NIV 36 as did its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico, and it had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. NCV 37 Its porch faced the outer courtyard. Carvings of palm trees were on its inner walls on each side, and its stairway had eight steps. NIV 37 Its portico faced the outer court; palm trees decorated the jambs on either side, and eight steps led up to it. NCV 38 There was a room with a door that opened onto the porch of the inner north gateway. In this room the priests washed animals for the burnt offerings. NIV 38 A room with a doorway was by the portico in each of the inner gateways, where the burnt offerings were washed. NCV 39 There were two tables on each side of the porch, on which animals for burnt offerings, sin offerings, and penalty offerings were killed. NIV 39 In the portico of the gateway were two tables on each side, on which the burnt offerings, sin offerings and guilt offerings were slaughtered. NCV 40 Outside, by each side wall of the porch, at the entrance to the north gateway, were two more tables. NIV 40 By the outside wall of the portico of the gateway, near the steps at the entrance of the north gateway were two tables, and on the other side of the steps were two tables. NCV 41 So there were four tables inside the gateway, and four tables outside. In all there were eight tables on which the priests killed animals for sacrifices. NIV 41 So there were four tables on one side of the gateway and four on the other—eight tables in all—on which the sacrifices were slaughtered. NCV 42 There were four tables made of cut stone for the burnt offering. These tables were about three feet long, three feet wide, and about two feet high. On these tables the priests put their tools which they used to kill animals for burnt offerings and the other sacrifices. NIV 42 There were also four tables of dressed stone for the burnt offerings, each a cubit and a half long, a cubit and a half wide and a cubit high. On them were placed the utensils for slaughtering the burnt offerings and the other sacrifices. NCV 43 Double shelves three inches wide were put up on all the walls. The flesh for the offering was put on the tables. NIV 43 And double-pronged hooks, each a handbreadth long, were attached to the wall all around. The tables were for the flesh of the offerings. NCV 44 There were two rooms in the inner courtyard. One was beside the north gateway and faced south. The other room was beside the south gateway and faced north. NIV 44 Outside the inner gate, within the inner court, were two rooms, one at the side of the north gate and facing south, and another at the side of the south gate and facing north. NCV 45 The man said to me, "The room which faces south is for the priests who serve in the Temple area, NIV 45 He said to me, “The room facing south is for the priests who guard the temple, NCV 46 while the room that faces north is for the priests who serve at the altar. This second group of priests are descendants of Zadok, the only descendants of Levi who can come near the Lord to serve him." NIV 46 and the room facing north is for the priests who guard the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, who are the only Levites who may draw near to the LORD to minister before him.” NCV 47 The man measured the inner courtyard. It was a square -- one hundred seventy-five feet long and one hundred seventy-five feet wide. The altar was in front of the Temple. NIV 47 Then he measured the court: It was square—a hundred cubits long and a hundred cubits wide. And the altar was in front of the temple. NCV 48 The man brought me to the porch of the Temple and measured each side wall of the porch. Each was about nine feet thick. The doorway was twenty-four and one-half feet wide. The side walls of the doorway were each about five feet wide. NIV 48 He brought me to the portico of the temple and measured the jambs of the portico; they were five cubits wide on either side. The width of the entrance was fourteen cubits and its projecting walls were three cubits wide on either side. NCV 49 The porch was thirty-five feet long and twenty-one feet wide, with ten steps leading up to it. Pillars were by the side walls, one on each side of the entrance. NIV 49 The portico was twenty cubits wide, and twelve cubits from front to back. It was reached by a flight of stairs, and there were pillars on each side of the jambs.
