Ezekiel 42 ©
The chambers for the priests. The use thereof. The measures of the outward court.
Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was dfifty cubits.
For the length of the chambers that were in the *utter court was fifty cubits: and, lo, before the temple were an hundred cubits.
And 3from under these chambers was 4the entry on the east side, 5as one 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 against the building.
And the kway 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 their doors.
And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward the south was a door lin the head of the way, even the way directly before the wall toward the east, as one entereth into them.
¶Then said he unto me, The north chambers and the south chambers, which are before the separate place, they be holy chambers, where mthe priests that napproach unto the LORD shall oeat the most holy things: there shall they play the most holy things, and the qmeat offering, and the rsin offering, and the strespass offering; for the place is holy.
When the priests enter therein, then tshall 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 uother garments, and shall approach to those things which are for the people.
He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.
He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed.
¶He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
He measured it by the yfour sides: it had a zwall round about, five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a aseparation between the sanctuary and the *profane place.
