Ezekiel 40

The time, manner, and end of the vision.

Ezekiel 40:1 In the fiue and twentieth yeere of our captiuitie, in the beginning of the yere, in the tenth day of the moneth, in the fourteenth yeere after that the citie was smitten, in the selfe same day, the hand of the LORD was vpon mee, and brought me thither. Ezekiel 40:2 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set mee vpon a very high mountaine, by which was as the frame of a citie on the South. Ezekiel 40:3 And he brought mee thither, and behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brasse, with a line of flaxe in his hand, & a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate. Ezekiel 40:4 And the man saide vnto mee; Sonne of man, behold with thine eyes, and heare with thine eares, & set thine heart vpon all that I shall shew thee: for to the intent that I might shew them vnto thee, art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest, to the house of Israel. Ezekiel 40:5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about: and in the mans hand a measuring reed of sixe cubites long, by the cubite, and an hand breadth: so hee measured the breadth of the building, one reed, and the height one reed.

The description of the east gate,

Ezekiel 40:6 Then came hee vnto the gate which looketh toward the East, and went vp the staires thereof, and measured the threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad, and the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad. Ezekiel 40:7 And euery little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad, and betweene the litle chambers were fiue cubites, & the threshold of the gate, by the porch of the gate within was one reed. Ezekiel 40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed. Ezekiel 40:9 Then measured hee the porch of the gate, eight cubites, and the postes thereof two cubits, and the porch of the gate was inward. Ezekiel 40:10 And the litle chambers of the gate Eastward, were three on this side, and three on that side, they three were of one measure, and the postes had one measure on this side, and on that side. Ezekiel 40:11 And hee measured the breadth of the entrie of the gate, ten cubits, and the length of the gate, thirteene cubites. Ezekiel 40:12 The space also before the litle chambers was one cubite on this side, and the space was one cubite on that side, and the litle chambers were sixe cubites on this side, and sixe cubits on that side. Ezekiel 40:13 Hee measured then the gate from the roofe of the one litle chamber to the roofe of another: the breadth was fiue and twentie cubits, doore against doore. Ezekiel 40:14 He made also postes of threescore cubites, euen vnto the poste of the court round about the gate. Ezekiel 40:15 And from the face of the gate of the entrance, vnto the face of the porch of the inner gate, were fiftie cubites. Ezekiel 40:16 And there were narrow windows to the litle chambers, and to their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the arches: and windowes were round about inward: and vpon ech post were palme-trees. Ezekiel 40:17 Then brought he me into the outward court, and loe there were chambers, and a pauement, made for the court round about: thirtie chambers were vpon the pauement. Ezekiel 40:18 And the pauement by the side of the gates ouer against the length of the gates, was the lower pauement. Ezekiel 40:19 Then hee measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower gate, vnto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred cubits Eastward and Northward.

of the north gate,

Ezekiel 40:20 And the gate of the outward court, that looked toward the North, he measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof. Ezekiel 40:21 And the little chambers thereof [were] three on this side, and three on that side, and the postes thereof, and the arches thereof were after the measure of the first gate: the length thereof [was] fiftie cubites, and the breadth fiue and twentie cubites. Ezekiel 40:22 And their windowes, and their arches, and their palme trees, [were] after the measure of the gate that looketh towards the East, and they went vp vnto it by seuen steps, and the arches thereof [were] before them. Ezekiel 40:23 And the gate of the inner court [was] ouer against the gate toward the North and toward the East, and hee measured from gate to gate an hundreth cubites.

Ezekiel 40:24 After that hee brought me toward the South, and behold a gate toward the South, and he measured the postes thereof, and the arches thereof according to these measures. Ezekiel 40:25 And [there were] windowes in it, and in the arches thereof round about, like those windowes, the length [was] fiftie cubites, and the breadth fiue and twentie cubites. Ezekiel 40:26 And [there were] seuen steps to goe vp to it, and the arches thereof [were] before them, and it had palme trees, one on this side, and another on that side vpon the postes thereof. Ezekiel 40:27 And [there was] a gate in the inner court toward the South, and he measured from gate to gate toward the South an hundred cubites. Ezekiel 40:28 And hee brought me to the inner court by the South gate, and he measured the South gate according to these measures, Ezekiel 40:29 And the little chambers thereof, and the postes thereof, and the arches thereof according to these measures, and [there were] windowes in it, and in the arches thereof round about: [it was] fiftie cubites long, and fiue and twentie cubites broad. Ezekiel 40:30 And the arches round about [were] fiue and twenty cubits long, and fiue cubites broad. Ezekiel 40:31 And the arches thereof [were] toward the vtter court, and palme trees [were] vpon the postes thereof, and the going vp to it [had] eight steps.

Ezekiel 40:34 And the arches thereof [were] toward the outward court, and palme trees [were] vpon the postes thereof on this side, and on that side, and the going vp to it [had] eight steps.

and of the north gate.

Ezekiel 40:35 And hee brought me to the North gate, and measured [it] according to these measures. Ezekiel 40:36 The little chambers thereof, the postes thereof, and the arches thereof and the windowes to it round about: the length [was] fiftie cubites, and the breadth fiue and twentie cubites. Ezekiel 40:37 And the postes thereof [were] toward the vtter court, and palme trees [were] vpon the posts thereof on this side, and on that side, and the going vp to it [had] eight steps. Ezekiel 40:38 And the chambers, and the entries thereof [were] by the postes of the gates, where they washed the burnt offering.

Eight tables.

Ezekiel 40:39 And in the porch of the gate [were] two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering, and the sinne offering, and the trespasse offering. Ezekiel 40:40 And at the side without, as one goeth vp to the entry of the North gate, [were] two tables, and on the other side, which [was] at the porch of the gate, [were] two tables. Ezekiel 40:41 Foure tables [were] on this side, and foure tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew [their sacrifices]. Ezekiel 40:42 And the foure tables [were] of hewen stone for the burnt offering, of a cubite and an halfe long, and a cubite & a halfe broad, and one cubit high: whereupon also they laide the instruments wherewith they slewe the burnt offering and the sacrifice. Ezekiel 40:43 And within [were] hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about, and vpon the tables [was] the flesh of the offering.

The chambers.

Ezekiel 40:44 And without the inner gate [were] the chambers of the singers in the inner court, which [was] at the side of the North gate: and their prospect [was] toward the South, one at the side of the East gate, hauing the prospect toward the North. Ezekiel 40:45 And hee said vnto me; This chamber whose prospect [is] toward the South, [is] for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house. Ezekiel 40:46 And the chamber whose prospect [is] toward the North, [is] for the priests the keepers of the charge of the altar: these [are] the sonnes of Zadok among the sonnes of Leui, which come neere to the LORD to minister vnto him. Ezekiel 40:47 So he measured the court, an hundreth cubites long, and an hundreth cubites broad foure square, and the altar [that was] before the house.

The porch of the house.

Ezekiel 40:48 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured [each] post of the porch, fiue cubites on this side, and fiue cubites on that side: and the bredth of the gate [was] three cubites on this side, and three cubites on that side. Ezekiel 40:49 The length of the porch [was] twentie cubites, and the bredth eleuen cubites, and [he brought me] by the steps, whereby they went vp to it, and [there were] pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side.
