5 After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the breadth of every 6 side chamber, four cubits, round about the house on every side. And the side

chambers were three, 'one over another, and a thirty in order; and they entered

into the wall which was of the house for the side chambers round about, that they 7 might have hold, but they had not bold in the wall of the house. And 4 there

was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: there

fore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest 8 chamber to the highest by the midst. I saw also the height of the house round about: the foundations of the side chambers were a full reed of six great cubits.

The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber without, was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side chambers that were 10 within. And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits round 11 about the house on every side. And the doors of the side chambers were toward

the place that was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the

south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about. 12 Now the building that was before the separate place at the end toward the

west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building was five cubits thick 13 round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits. So he measured the house,

an hundred cubits long; and the separate place, and the building, with the walls 14 thereof, an hundred cubits long; also the breadth of the face of the house, and

of the separate place toward the east, an hundred cubits. 15 And he measured the length of the building over against the separate place

which was behind it, and the galleries thereof on the one side and on the other

side, an hundred cubits, with the inner temple, and the porches of the court; 16 the door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round about on their

three stories, over against the door, 6 cieled with wood round about, 7 and from 17 the ground up to the windows, and the windows were covered ; to that above the

door, even unto the inner house, and without, and by all the wall round about

within and without, by 8 measure. 18 And it was made with cherubim and palm trees, so that a palm tree was be19 tween a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had two faces; so that the face

of a man was toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the other side: it was made through all the house round

about. From the ground unto above the door were cherubim and palm trees 21 made, and on the wall of the temple. The posts of the temple were squared,

and the face of the sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the

other. 22 The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length thereof two cubits;

and the corners thereof, and the length thereof, and the walls thereof, were of 23 wood: and he said unto me, This is the table that is before the Lord. And the 24 temple and the sanctuary had two doors. And the doors had two leaves apiece,

two turning leaves; two leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the other 25 door. And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubim and

palm trees, like as were made upon the walls; and there were thick planks upon 26 the face of the porch without. "And there were narrow windows and palm trees

on the one side and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the

side chambers of the house, and thick planks. 42 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, the way toward the north : and

he brought me into the chamber that was over against the separate place, and 2 which was before the building toward the north. Before the length of an 3 hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was fifty cubits. Over

against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and over against the

pavement which was for the utter court, was gallery against gallery in three 4 stories. And before the chambers was a walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way 5 of one cubit; and their doors toward the north. Now the upper chambers were

shorter: for the galleries 10 were higher than these, 'I than the lower, and than 1 Heb. side chamber orer side chamber.

6 the middleinost of the building. For they were in three stories, but had not

pillars as the pillars of the courts : therefore the building was straitened more

than the lowest and the middlemost from the ground. 7 And the wall that was without over against the chambers, toward the utter 8 court on the forepart of the chambers, the length thereof was fifty cubits. For

the length of the chambers that were in the utier court was fifty cubits; and, lo,

before the temple were an hundred cubits. 9 And 'from under these chambers was 2 the entry on the east side, Sas one 10 goeth into them from the utter court. The chambers were in the thickness of

the wall of the court toward the east, over against the separate place, and over 11 against the building. And the way before them was like the appearance of the

chambers which were toward the north, as long as they, and as broad as they:

and all their goings out were both according to their fashions, and according to 12 their doors. And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward the

south was a door in the head of the way, even the way directly before the wall

toward the east, as one entereth into them. 13 Then said he unto me, The north chambers and the south chambers, which

are before the separate place, they be holy chambers, where the priests that approach unto the Lord shall eat the most holy things: there shall they lay the

most holy things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass 14 offering; for the place is holy. When the priests enter therein, then shall they

not go out of the holy place into the utter court, but there they shall lay their garments wherein they minister; for they are holy; and shall put on other gar

ments, and shall approach to those things which are for the people. 15 Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me

forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it round 16 about. He measured the east 4 side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds, 17 with the measuring reed round about. He measured the north side, five hundred 18 reeds, with the measuring reed round about. He measured the south side, five 19 hundred reeds, with the measuring reed. He turned about to the west side, and 20 measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. He measured it by the

four sides: it had a wall round about, five hundred reeds long, and five hundred

broad, to make a separation between the sanctuary and the profane place 43 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the

east: and, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the 2 east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with 3 his glory. And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw,

even according to the vision that I saw when I came 5 to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.

And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate 5 whose prospect is toward the east. So the spirit took me up, and brought me 6 into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house. And

I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me. 7 And he said unto me,

Son of man,
The place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet,
Where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever,
And my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile,
Neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom,

Nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places. 8 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds,

And their post by my posts,
6 And the wall between me and them,
They have even defiled my holy name
By their abominations that they have committed :

Wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger. 9 Now let them put away their whoredom,

And the carcases of their kings, far from me,

And I will dwell in the midst of them for ever. 10 Thou son of man, show the house to the house of Israel,

That they may be ashamed of their iniquities :

And let them measure the pattern.
11 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done,

Show them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof,
And the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof,
And all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof,
And all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof:
And write it in their sight,
That they may keep the whole form thereof,

And all the ordinances thereof, and do them. 12

This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house. 13 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The cubit is a cubit

and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be a cubit, and the breadth a cubit,

and the border thereof by the Sedge thereof round about shall be a span: and this 14 shall be the higher place of the altar. And from the bottom upon the ground

even to the lower settle shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from

the lesser settle even to the greater settle shall be four cubits, and the breadth one 15 cubit. So + the altar shall be four cubits; and from 5 the altar and upward shall be 16 four horns. And the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad, square in the 17 four squares thereof. And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen

broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it shall be half a cubit; and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about; and his stairs shall look toward

the east. 18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord God; These are the

ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings 19 thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon. And thou shalt give to the priests the

Levites that be of the seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto 20 me, saith the Lord God, a young bullock for a sin offering. And thou shalt

take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four horns of it, and on the four

corners of the settle, and upon the border round about: thus shalt thou cleanse 21 and purge it. Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall 22 burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary. And on the

second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish for a sin offering; 23 and they shall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock. When

thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a young bullock without 24 blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish. And thou shalt offer them

before the Lord, and the priests shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer 25 them up for a burnt offering unto the LORD. Seven days shalt thou prepare

every day a goat for a sin offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and 26 a ram out of the flock, without blemish. Seren days shall they purge the altar 27 and purify it; and they shall consecrate themselves. And when these days are

expired, it shall be, that upon the eighth day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the altar, and your ? peace offerings; and I will

accept you, saith the Lord God. 44 Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which

looketh toward the east; and it was shut. Then said the Lord unto me; This 2 gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; be

cause the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be 3 shut. It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the

LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the

way of the same.

Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD: and I fell 5 upon my face. Ånd the LORD said unto me, Son of man, 8mark well, and

behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto thee con

cerning all the ordinances of the house of the LORD, and all the laws thereof;

and mark well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the sanc6 tuary. And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of Israel, Thus

saith the Lord God; O ye house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your abomin7 ations, in that ye have brought into my sanctuary : strangers, uncircumcised in

heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my

house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my 8 covenant because of all your abominations. And ye have not kept the charge of

mine holy things: but ye have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for

yourselves. 9 Thus saith the Lord God; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncir.

cumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among 10 the children of Israel. And the Levites that are gone away far from me, when

Israel went astray, which went astray away from me after their idols; they shall 11 even bear their iniquity. Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having

charge at the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they shall slay

the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before 12 them to minister unto them. Because they ministered unto them before their

idols, and 3 caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I

lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord God, and they shall bear their 13 iniquity. And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a priest

unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place :

but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have com14 mitted. But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for all the

service thereof, and for all that shall be done therein. 15 But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my

sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come

near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me 16 the fat and the blood, saith the Lord God: they shall enter into my sanctuary,

and they shall come near to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep 17 my charge. And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the gates of

the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and no wool shall

come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner court, and 18 within. They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen

breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves 45 with any thing that 19 causeth sweat. And when they go forth into the utter court, even into the utter

court to the people, they shall put off their garments wherein they ministered,

and lay them in the holy chambers, and they shall put on other garments; and 20 they shall not sanctify the people with their garments. Neither shall they shave

their heads, nor suffer their locks to grow long; they shall only poll their heads. 21 Neither shall any priest drink wine, when they enter into the inner court. 22 Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that is 6 put away : but

they shall take maidens of the seed of the house of Israel, or a widow 7 that had 23 a priest before. And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy

and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. 24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it ac

cording to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all 25 mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths. And they shall come at

no dead person to defile themselves : but for father, or for mother, or for son,

or for daughter, for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may 26 defile themselves. And after he is cleansed, they shall reckon unto him seven 27 days. And in the day that he goeth into the sanctuary, unto the inner court, to minister in the sanctuary, he shall offer his sin offering, saith the Lord God.

And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their inheritance: and ye 29 shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their possession. They shall eat

28

the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering; and every 30 8 dedicated thing in Israel shall be theirs. And the first of all the firstfruits of

all things, and every oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the

priest's : ye shall also give unto the priest the first of your dough, that he may 31 cause the blessing to rest in thine house. The priest shall not eat of any thing

that is dead of itself, or torn, whether it be fowl or beast. 45

Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the Lord, oan holy portion of the land: the length shall be the

length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. 2 This

shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about. Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length, with five hundred in breadth, square 3 round about; and fifty cubits round about for the S suburbs thereof. And of

this measure shalt thou measure the length of five and twenty thousand, and

the breadth of ten thousand: and in it shall be the sanctuary and the most holy 4 place. The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister unto the LORD: and it shall be a place for their houses, and an holy place for the sanctuary.

And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten thousand of breadth, shall also the Levites, the ministers of the house, have for themselves, for a pos

session for twenty chambers. 6. And ye shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand broad, and five

and twenty thousand long, over against the oblation of the holy portion : it shall

be for the whole house of Israel. 7 And a portion shall be for the prince on the one side and on the other side of

the oblation of the holy portion, and of the possession of the city, before the oblation of the holy portion, and before the possession of the city, from the west

side westward, and from the east side eastward : and the length shall be over 8 against one of the portions, from the west border unto the east border. In the

land shall be his possession in Israel: and my princes shall no more oppress my people; and the rest of the land shall they give to the house of Israel according

to their tribes. 9 Thus saith the Lord God; Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel: remove

violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away your + exactions 10 from my people, saith the Lord God. Ye shall have just balances, and a just 11 ephah, and a just bath. The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that

the bath may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the tenth part 12 of an homer': the measure thereof shall be after the homer. And the shekel

shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.

This is the oblation that ye shall offer; the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of wheat, and ye shall give the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of barley. 14 Concerning the ordinance of oil, the bath of oil, ye shall offer the tenth part of a

bath out of the cor, which is an homer of ten baths; for ten baths are an homer. 15 And one 5 lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the fat pastures of

Israel ; for a meat offering, and for a burnt offering, and for peace offerings, to 16 make reconciliation for them, saith the Lord God. All the people of the land

7 shall give this oblation for the prince in Israel. 17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings,

and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel : he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make recon

ciliation for the house of Israel. 18 Thus saith the Lord God; In the first month, in the first day of the month,

thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the sanctuary : 19 and the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put il upon the

posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon 20 the posts of the gate of the inner court. And so thou shalt do the seventh day

of the month for every one that erreth, and for him that is simple : so shall ye reconcile the house.

In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the pass22 over, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. And upon that
