New Temple (continued)
41:1 Afterward he brought me to the temple, and
measured the posts, six cubits broad on the one side, and
six cubits broad on the other side, which was the breadth of
41:2 And the breadth of the door was ten cubits; and the
sides of the door were five cubits on the one side, and five
cubits on the other side: and he measured the length
thereof, forty cubits: and the breadth, twenty cubits.
41:3 Then went he inward, and measured the post of the
door, two cubits; and the door, six cubits; and the breadth
of the door, seven cubits.
41:4 So he measured the length thereof, twenty cubits; and
the breadth, twenty cubits, before the temple: and he said
unto me, This is the most holy place.
41:5 After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits;
and the breadth of every side chamber, four cubits, round
about the house on every side.
41:6 And the side chambers were three, one over another,
and thirty in order; and they entered into the wall which
was of the house for the side chambers round about, that
they might have hold, but they had not hold in the wall of
41:7 And 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: therefore the
breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from
the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst.
41:8 I saw also the height of the house round about: the
foundations of the side chambers were a full reed of six
41:9 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 within.
41:10 And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty
cubits round about the house on every side.
41:11 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.
41:12 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 round about, and
the length thereof ninety cubits.
41:13 So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long; and
the separate place, and the building, with the walls
thereof, an hundred cubits long;
41:14 Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the
separate place toward the east, an hundred cubits.
41:15 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
41:16 The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the
galleries round about on their three stories, over against
the door, cieled with wood round about, and from the ground
up to the windows, and the windows were covered;
41:17 To that above the door, even unto the inner house,
and without, and by all the wall round about within and
without, by measure.
41:18 And it was made with cherubims and palm trees, so
that a palm tree was between a cherub and a cherub; and
every cherub had two faces;
41:19 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
41:20 From the ground unto above the door were cherubims
and palm trees made, and on the wall of the temple.
41:21 The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of
the sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance
of the other.
41:22 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 wood: and he
said unto me, This is the table that is before the LORD.
41:23 And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.
41:24 And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning
leaves; two leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the
41:25 And there were made on them, on the doors of the
temple, cherubims and palm trees, like as were made upon the
walls; and there were thick planks upon the face of the
41:26 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.
