Chapter 40

1In the twenty and fifth year of our removal, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in this self-same day hath a hand of Jehovah been upon me, and He bringeth me in thither; 2in visions of God He hath brought me in unto the land of Israel, and causeth me to rest on a very high mountain, and upon it [is] as the frame of a city on the south. 3And He bringeth me in thither, and lo, a man, his appearance as the appearance of brass, and a thread of flax in his hand, and a measuring-reed, and he is standing at the gate, 4and the man speaketh unto me: `Son of man, see with thine eyes, And with thine ears hear, And set thy heart to all that I am shewing thee, For, in order to shew [it] thee, Thou hast been brought in hither, Declare all that thou art seeing to the house of Israel.` 5And lo, a wall on the outside of the house all round about, and in the hand of the man a measuring-reed, six cubits by a cubit and a handbreadth, and he measureth the breadth of the building one reed, and the height one reed. 6And he cometh in unto the gate whose front [is] eastward, and he goeth up by its steps, and he measureth the threshold of the gate one reed broad, even the one threshold one reed broad, 7and the little chamber one reed long and one reed broad, and between the little chambers five cubits, and the threshold of the gate, from the side of the porch of the gate from within, one reed. 8And he measureth the porch of the gate from within one reed, 9and he measureth the porch of the gate eight cubits, and its posts two cubits, and the porch of the gates from within, 10and the little chambers of the gate eastward, three on this side, and three on that side; one measure [is] to them three, and one measure [is] to the posts, on this side and on that side. 11And he measureth the breadth of the opening of the gate ten cubits, the length of the gate thirteen cubits; 12and a border before the little chambers, one cubit, and one cubit [is] the border on this side, and the little chamber [is] six cubits on this side, and six cubits on that side. 13And he measureth the gate from the roof of the [one] little chamber to the roof of another; the breadth twenty and five cubits, opening over-against opening. 14And he maketh the posts of sixty cubits, even unto the post of the court, the gate all round about; 15and by the front of the gate of the entrance, by the front of the porch of the inner gate, fifty cubits; 16and narrow windows [are] unto the little chambers, and unto their posts at the inside of the gate all round about -- and so to the arches -- and windows all round about [are] at the inside, and at the post [are] palm-trees. 17And he bringeth me in unto the outer court, and lo, chambers and a pavement made for the court all round about -- thirty chambers on the pavement -- 18and the pavement unto the side of the gates over-against the length of the gates [is] the lower pavement; 19and he measureth the breadth from before the lower gate, to the front of the inner court, on the outside, a hundred cubits, eastward and northward. 20As to the gate of the outer court whose front [is] northward, he hath measured its length and its breadth; 21and its little chambers, three on this side, and three on that side, and its posts and its arches have been according to the measure of the first gate, fifty cubits its length, and the breadth five and twenty by the cubit; 22and its windows, and its arches, and its palm-trees [are] according to the measure of the gate whose face [is] eastward, and by seven steps they go up on it, and its arches [are] before them. 23And the gate of the inner court [is] over-against the gate at the north and at the east; and he measureth from gate unto gate, a hundred cubits. 24And he causeth me to go southward, and lo, a gate southward, and he hath measured its posts and its arches according to these measures; 25and windows [are] to it and to its arches all round about, like these windows, fifty cubits the length, and the breadth five and twenty cubits; 26and seven steps [are] its ascent, and its arches [are] before them, and palm-trees [are] to it, one on this side, and one on that side, at its posts; 27and the gate of the inner court [is] southward, and he measureth from gate unto gate southward, a hundred cubits. 28And he bringeth me in unto the inner court by the south gate, and he measureth the south gate according to these measures; 29and its little chambers, and its posts, and its arches [are] according to these measures, and windows [are] to it and to its arches all round about; fifty cubits the length, and the breadth twenty and five cubits. 30As to the arches all round about, the length [is] five and twenty cubits, and the breadth five cubits; 31and its arches [are] unto the outer court, and palm-trees [are] unto its posts, and eight steps [are] its ascent. 32And he bringeth me in unto the inner court eastward, and he measureth the gate according to these measures; 33and its little chambers, and its posts, and its arches [are] according to these measures: and windows [are] to it and to its arches all round about, the length fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits; 34and its arches [are] toward the outer court, and palm-trees [are] toward its posts, on this side and on that side, and eight steps [are] its ascent. 35And he bringeth me in unto the north gate, and hath measured according to these measures; 36its little chambers, its posts, and its arches; and windows [are] to it all round about: the length fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits; 37and its posts [are] to the outer court, and palm-trees [are] unto its posts, on this side and on that side, and eight steps [are] its ascent. 38And the chamber and its opening [is] by the posts of the gates, there they purge the burnt-offering. 39And in the porch of the gate [are] two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slaughter on them the burnt-offering, and the sin-offering, and the guilt-offering; 40and at the side without, at the going up to the opening of the north gate, [are] two tables; and at the other side that [is] at the porch of the gate, [are] two tables; 41four tables [are] on this side, and four tables on that side, at the side of the gate, eight tables on which they slaughter. 42And the four tables for burnt-offering [are] of hewn stone: the length one cubit and a half, and the breadth one cubit and a half, and the height one cubit: on them they place the instruments with which they slaughter the burnt-offering and the sacrifice. 43And the boundaries [are] one handbreadth, prepared within all round about: and on the tables [is] the flesh of the offering. 44And on the outside of the inner gate [are] chambers of the singers, in the inner court, that [are] at the side of the north gate, and their fronts [are] southward, one at the side of the east gate [hath] the front northward. 45And he speaketh unto me: `This chamber, whose front [is] southward, [is] for priests keeping charge of the house; 46and the chamber, whose front [is] northward, [is] for priests keeping charge of the altar: they [are] sons of Zadok, who are drawing near of the sons of Levi unto Jehovah, to serve Him.` 47And he measureth the court: the length a hundred cubits, and the breadth a hundred cubits, square, and the altar [is] before the house. 48And he bringeth me in unto the porch of the house, and he measureth the post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side, and the breadth of the gate, three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side; 49the length of the porch twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; and by the steps whereby they go up unto it: and pillars [are] at the posts, one on this side, and one on that side.
