1 Then he brought me into the sanctuary and measured the pillars, six cubits wide on one side and six cubits wide on the other side; the width of the tent.
2 And the width of the entryway was ten cubits, and the side walls of the entrance were
five cubits on this side and five cubits on the other side; and he measured its length,
forty cubits, and its width, twenty cubits.
3 And he went inside and measured the doorposts, two cubits; and the entrance, six
cubits high; and the width of the entrance, seven cubits.
4 He measured the length, twenty cubits; and the width, twenty cubits, beyond the
sanctuary; and he said to me, This is the Holy of Holies.
5 Next, he measured the wall of the house, six cubits. The width of each side room all
around the house was four cubits on every side.
6 The side rooms were in three stories, one above the other, thirty rooms in each story;
they rested on ledges which were for the side rooms all around, that they might be
supported, but not fastened to the wall of the house.
7 As one went up from story to story, the side rooms became wider all around, because
their supporting ledges in the wall of the house ascended like steps; therefore the width
of the structure increased as one went up from the lowest story to the highest by way of
the middle one.
8 I also saw the height of the house all around; the foundation of the side rooms was a
full rod, that is, six cubits high.
9 The thickness of the outer wall of the side rooms was five cubits, and so was also the
remaining area of the side rooms of the house.
10 And between it and the rooms was a width of twenty cubits all around the house on
11 The doors of the side rooms opened toward the open area, one door toward the north
and another toward the south; and the width of the open area was five cubits all around.
12 The building that faced the separate area at its western end was seventy cubits wide;
the wall of the building was five cubits thick all around, and its length ninety cubits.
13 So he measured the house, one hundred cubits long; and the separate area with the
building and its walls was one hundred cubits long.
14 And the width of the eastern face of the house, including the separate area, was one
15 And he measured the length of the building behind it, facing the separate area, with
its galleries on the one side and on the other side, one hundred cubits, as well as the inner
temple and the porches of the court,
16 their thresholds and the shuttered windows. And the galleries all around their three
stories opposite the threshold were paneled with wood from the ground to the windows
(the windows were covered),
17 from the space above the door, even to the inner room, as well as outside, and on
every wall all around, inside and outside, by measure.
18 And it was made with cherubim and palm trees, a palm tree between cherub and
cherub. And each cherub had two faces,
19 so that the face of a man was toward a palm tree on one side, and the face of a young
lion toward a palm tree on the other side; thus it was made throughout the house all
20 From the ground to the space above the door, and on the wall of the temple, cherubim
and palm trees were carved.
21 The doorposts of the temple were square, as was the front of the sanctuary; the
appearance of the one was as the appearance of the other.
22 The altar of wood, was three cubits high, and its length two cubits. Its corners, its
length, and its sides were of wood. And he said to me, This is the table that is before
23 The temple and the sanctuary had two doors.
24 The doors had two doors each, two turning doors: two for one door, and two doors for
25 And Cherubim and palm trees were carved on the doors of the temple just like the
ones carved on the walls. And wooden planks were on the front of the porch outside.
26 There were shuttered windows and palm trees on one side and on the other, on the
sides of the porch; also on the side rooms of the house and on the planks.
