1Then he brought me forth into the outer court, the way toward the
north: and he brought me into the chamber that was over against the separate
place, and which was over against the building toward the north.
the length of one hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was

chambers was a walk of ten cubits’ breadth inward, a way of one cubit; and
their doors were toward the north.
5Now the upper chambers were shorter;
for the galleries took away from these, more than from the lower and the
middle, in the building.
6For they were in three stories, and they didn’t
have pillars as the pillars of the courts: therefore the uppermost
was straitened more than the lowest and the middle from the ground.
wall that was outside by the side of the chambers, toward the outer court
before the chambers, the length of it was fifty cubits.
8For the length
of the chambers that were in the outer court was fifty cubits: and behold,
before the temple were one hundred cubits.
9From under these chambers was
the entry on the east side, as one goes into them from the outer court.
10In the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, before the
separate place, and before the building, there were chambers.

and shall approach to that which pertains to the people.
15Now when he
had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me forth by the way
of the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it round about.
16He measured on the east side with the measuring reed five hundred
reeds, with the measuring reed round about.
17He measured on the north
side five hundred reeds with the measuring reed round about.
measured on the south side five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
19He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds with
the measuring reed.
20He measured it on the four sides: it had a wall
round about, the length five hundred, and the breadth five hundred, to make a
separation between that which was holy and that which was common.
