6 And the fide chambers tvere 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 the house.
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 fill upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest
by the midst.
81 saw also the height of the house round 'about; the foundations of the fide chambers were a full reed of six great cubits.
9 The thickness of the wall, which <was for the side chamber without, iuas five cubits: and that which iuas left -was the place of the side chambers that were within.
10 And between the chambers was the widenefs of twenty cubits round about the house on every side.
j i And the doors of the side chambers . were toward the place that was left, one door toward the north, and andther door toward the south: and the breadth of the place that was left iuas five cubits round about.
i* Now the building that iuas before the separate place at the end toward the west iuas seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building iuas five cubits thick round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits.
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;

3 Over again it the twenty cubits which vitre for the inner court, and over against the pavement which was for the utter court, ivas gallery againlt
v gallery in threeJiories.
4 And before the chambers ivas a walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way of one cubit: and their doors toward the north.
5 Novv the upper chambers ivere shorter: for the galleries were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.
6 For they ivere 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 ivas without over against the chambers, toward the utter court on the forepart of the chambers, the length thereof ivas fifty cubits.
i For the length of the chambers that •wire in the utter court was fifty cubits: aud, lo, before the temple ivere an hundred cubits.
9 And from under these chambers vias the entry on the east side, as one goeth into them from the utter court.
10 The chambers ivere in the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, over against the separate place, and over against the building.
11 And the way before them ivas like the appearance of the chambers which ivere toward the north, as long as they, and as broad as they: and all their goings out ivere both according to their famions, and according to their doors.
11 And according to the doors of the chambers that ivere 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 fl 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 (lull they lay
the most holy things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering; for the place is holy.
14. 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 garments, 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 ;'/ toward the east, and measured it round about.
ifl He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.
17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.
18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed.
19 fl He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed.

AFTERWARD he brought me to the gate, even the gate that look, eth toward the east:
* And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice ivas like a noise of many wa. ters: and the earth shined with his glory,
3 And it ivas according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions ivere like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.
4 And the glory of the Lor D came into the houle by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.
5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house.
6 And I heard him speaki ng u nto me out of the house; and the man stood by me.
7 f And he said unto me, Son ofinan, 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, n^r
Z z 4 their The measures and

their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
8 In their setting os their threshold by my thresholds, and their post by my posts, 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, (hew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.
ii And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew 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.
i» This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain, the whole limit thereof round about Jhali 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 bottomjhallbe a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about/hall be a span: and ihhjhall be the higher place of the altar.
14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower Cctt\e Jhall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser settle even to the greater (M\e Jhall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.
15 So the altar Jhall be four cubits; and from the altar and upward Jhall be four horns.
16 And the altar Jhall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad, square in the four squares thereof.
17 And the settle Jhall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen bread in the four squares'thei eos; and the border about it shall be half a cubit; and the bottom thereof Jhall be a cubit about; and his stairs shall look toward the east.
i g And he said unto me, Son of man, thus faith the Lord Gon; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they (hall make it; to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.
19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of die feed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to ministtr unto me, faith the Lord God, a young bullock for a sin offering.
10 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 and purge it.
ai Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.
za And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemiih for a sin offering; and they (hall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock.
»3 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a younj bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.
14 And thou (halt offer them before the Lord, and the priests shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them np for a burnt offering unto the Lord.
»5 Seven days (halt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin offering: they mall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock, without blemish.
z6 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they shall consecrate themselves.
»7 And when these days are expired, it (hall be, that upon the eighth day, and Jo forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you, faith the Lord God.

THEN he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it tvas ihut.
