1And he brought me to the temple: and he measured the door-posts, six cubits broad on the one side, and six cubits broad on the other side, as also the breadth of the tabernacle.
2And 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 its length, forty cubits, and the breadth, twenty cubits.
3Then went he inward, and measured the posts of the door, two cubits; and the door was six cubits high; and the breadth of the door, was seven cubits.
4And he measured its length, twenty cubits; and the breadth, twenty cubits, fronting on the temple: and he said unto me, This is the most holy place.
5After this he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the breadth of every side-chamber was four cubits, all round about the house on every side.
6And the side-chambers were one over another, three and thirty times; and they entered into the wall which was on the house for the side-chambers all round about, that they might be fastened on, but they were not fastened on the wall of the house.
7And as one wound upward it became continually wider for the side-chambers; for the row of chambers about the house went more and more upward round about the house; therefore was the breadth of the house greater upward: and so they ascended from the lowest chambers to the highest through the middle ones.
8And I saw the height of the house all round about: the foundations of the side-chambers were a full rod of six cubits under ground.
9The thickness of the wall, which was for the side-chambers without, was five cubits, as also the space which was left open by the row of the side-chambers that were on the house.
10And between the chambers there was a width of twenty cubits round about the house on every side.
11And the doors of the side-chambers were on the open space, one door was in a northern direction, and another door on the south; and the breadth of the place that was left open was five cubits all round about.
12Now the building that was before the main wing on the west side was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building was five cubits thick round about, and its length, ninety cubits.
13So he measured the house, in length one hundred cubits; and the main wing, and the building, with its walls, in length one hundred cubits;
14Also the breadth in the front of the house, and of the main wing on the east, was one hundred cubits.
15And he measured the length of the building on the front side of the main wing which was behind it, and its corner-pillars on the one side and on the other side, one hundred cubits; and this included the inner temple, and the porches of the court;
16The thresholds, and the narrow windows, and the corner-pillars were round about on their three sides: opposite the threshold there was a wainscoting of wood all round about, and so from the ground up to the windows; and the windows were covered.
17On the part above the door, and as far as the inner house, and the outer house, was a wainscoting, and on all the wall round about within and without, by the same measure;
18And it was ornamented with cherubim and palm-trees, a palm-tree being between two cherubim; and every cherub had two faces;

19So that a human face was toward the palm-tree on the one side, and a young lion's face toward the palm-tree on the other side: it was so made on all the house round about.
20From the ground to the part above the door were the cherubim and the palm-trees made, and so on the wall of the temple.
21The temple had four-cornered door-posts, and the front of the holy of holies had the same appearance as the appearance of the other.
22The altar was of wood, three cubits high, and its length was two cubits; and its corners, and its top-piece, and its walls, were of wood: and he spoke unto me, This is the table that is before the Lord.
23And the temple and the holy of holies had two doors.
24And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves, two leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the other.
25And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubim and palm-trees, as they were made upon the walls; and a covering of thick wooden planks was upon the front of the porch without.
26And there were narrow windows and palm-trees on the one side and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and on the side-chambers of the house, and the covering of thick planks.
