The time, manner, and end of the vision.
Ezekiel 40:1 In the fyue and twentie yere of our captiuitie, in the beginning of the yere, the tenth day of the moneth, that is the fourtenth yere after the citie was smitten, the selfe same day came the hand of the Lorde vpon me, & brought me thyther: Ezekiel 40:2 Euen into the land of Israel brought he me in the visions of god, & set me downe vpon a marueylous hye mountayne, wherevpon there was as it had ben the buylding of a citie towarde the south. Ezekiel 40:3 Thyther he caried me, and behold there was a man, whose similitude was like brasse, whiche had a twisted line of flax in his hand, and a cane to measure with: and he stoode in the doore. Ezekiel 40:4 And that man sayde vnto me: Thou sonne of man, marke well with thyne eyes, hearken to with thyne eares, and fasten it in thy heart, whatsoeuer I shal shewe thee: for to the intent that they might be shewed thee, therfore art thou brought hyther, and whatsoeuer thou seest, thou shalt certifie the house of Israel therof. Ezekiel 40:5 Behold, there was a wall on the outside of the house, rounde about: the cane to measure with that he had in his hande, was sixe cubites long by the cubite & a hande breadth: So he measured the breadth of the building with one cane, and the heyght with one cane.
The description of the east gate,
Ezekiel 40:6 Then came he to the gate which loketh toward the east, and went vp the staires therof, and measured the post of the gate one cane broade, and the other post of the gate one cane broade. Ezekiel 40:7 And [euery] chamber was one cane long and one cane broade, and betweene the chambers were fiue cubites: and the post of the gate by the porche of the gate within, was one cane. Ezekiel 40:8 He measured also the porche of the gate within one cane. Ezekiel 40:9 Then measured he the porche of the gate eyght cubites: & the pentises therof two cubites, and the porche of the gate [was] inwarde. Ezekiel 40:10 And the chambers of the gate eastward, were three on this side, & three on that side: they three were of one measure, & the pentises had one measure on this side, and one measure on that side. Ezekiel 40:11 After this, he measured the breadth of the entrie of the gate ten cubites, and the heyght of the gate thirteene cubites. Ezekiel 40:12 The space also before the chambers was one cubite [on this side] and the space one cubite on that side: & the chambers sixe cubites on this side, and sixe cubites on that side. Ezekiel 40:13 He measured the gate from the roofe of a chamber to his owne roofe the breadth of fiue and twentie cubites: doore against doore. Ezekiel 40:14 He made frontes also of threescore cubites, [euen] vnto the front of the court rounde about the gate. Ezekiel 40:15 And from the forefront of the entrie of the gate, vnto the forefront of the gate within [were] fiftie cubites. Ezekiel 40:16 And there were narowe windowes in the chambers, and in the frontes within the gate rounde about: & so in the arches: and the windowes [went] rounde about within, and vpon the frontes were paulme trees. Ezekiel 40:17 Then brought he me into the outward court, where as were chambers, and a pauement made for the court rounde about: thirtie chambers were vpon the pauement. Ezekiel 40:18 And the pauement [was] by the side of the gates, ouer against the length of the gates: and the pauement [was] beneath. Ezekiel 40:19 Then he measured the breadth fro the forefront of the lower gate without, vnto the forefront of the court within, a hundreth cubites eastwarde and northwarde.
of the north gate,
Ezekiel 40:20 And the gate in the outward court that loked toward the north, measured he after the length and breadth therof. Ezekiel 40:21 And the chambers therof [were] three on this side, and three on that side: and the frontes therof, 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 with their paulme trees [were] after the measure of the gate that loketh toward the east: and the goyng vp vnto it [had] seuen steppes, and the arches thereof [were] before them. Ezekiel 40:23 And the gate of the inner court [stoode] ouer against the gate towarde the north and toward the east, and he measured from gate to gate a hundreth cubites.
of the south gate,
Ezekiel 40:24 After that he brought me towarde the south, where there stoode a gate towarde the south, and he measured the frontes therof and the arches therof according to those measures. Ezekiel 40:25 And [there were] windowes in it, and in the arches therof round about like these windowes: the length [was] fiftie cubites, & the breadth fiue and twentie cubites. Ezekiel 40:26 And [there were] seuen steppes at the goyng vp to it, and the arches therof before them: & it had paulme trees, one on this side, and an other on that side, vpon the front therof. Ezekiel 40:27 And [there was] a gate in the inner court towarde the south, and he measured from gate to gate toward the south, a hundred cubites. Ezekiel 40:28 So he brought me into the inner court thorowe the south gate, and he measured the south gate according to those measures. Ezekiel 40:29 And the chambers thereof, the frontes therof, and the arches thereof, according to these measures, and wyndowes in it: and in the arches thereof round about, fiftie cubites long, and fiue and twentie cubites broade. Ezekiel 40:30 And the arches round about [were] fiue and twentie cubites long, and fiue cubites broade. Ezekiel 40:31 And the arches therof [were] toward the vtter court, and paulme trees vpon the frontes therof, & the goyng vp to it [had] eyght steppes.

Ezekiel 40:33 And the chambers thereof, and frontes therof, and the arches therof [were] according to these measures, & there were windowes therin, and in the arches therof round about: it [was] fiftie cubites long, & fiue and twentie cubites broade. Ezekiel 40:34 And the arches therof [were] towarde the vtter court, and paulme trees vpon the frontes thereof on this side and on that side, & the goyng vp to it had eyght steppes.
and of the north gate.
Ezekiel 40:35 And he brought me to the north gate, & measured it according to those measures. Ezekiel 40:36 The chambers thereof, the frontes therof, and the arches therof, and [there were] windowes therin rounde about: and the length [was] fiftie cubites, & the breadth fiue and twentie cubites. Ezekiel 40:37 And the frontes therof [were] towarde the vtter court, and paulme trees [were] vpon the frontes therof on this side, and on that side, and the goyng vp to it had eyght steppes. Ezekiel 40:38 And a chamber and the entrie thereof [was] vnder the frotes of the gates: there they washed the burnt offeringes.
Ezekiel 40:39 And in the porche of the gate stoode two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, vpon the whiche they slue the burnt offering, and the sinne offering, and the trespasse offering. Ezekiel 40:40 And at the side without the steppes at the entrie of the north gate [stoode] two tables, and on the other side which was at the porche of the gate [were] two tables. Ezekiel 40:41 Foure tables were on this side, and foure on that side by the side of the gate, [euen] eyght tables, wherevpon they slue [their sacrifices.] Ezekiel 40:42 And the foure tables were of hewen stone for the burnt offring, of a cubite & a halfe long, and a cubite and a halfe broade, and one cubite hye, wherevpon were layde the instrumentes wherwith they slue the burnt offring, and the sacrifice. Ezekiel 40:43 And within there were hookes one hand breadth [long] fastened rounde about, and vpon the tables was the offering fleshe.
Ezekiel 40:44 And without the inner gate [were] the chambers of the singers in the inwarde court, whiche was at the side of the north gate, and their prospect was towarde the south: and one was at the side of the east gate, hauing the prospect towarde the north. Ezekiel 40:45 And he sayde vnto me: This chamber, whose prospect is towarde the south, [is] for the priestes that haue charge to kepe the house. Ezekiel 40:46 And the chamber whose prospect is towarde the north [is] for the priestes that haue charge to kepe the aulter: these are the sonnes of Sadoc, which of the sonnes of Leui come neare to the Lorde, to minister vnto him. Ezekiel 40:47 So he measured the court, which had in length a hundred cubites, and a hundred in breadth, [euen] fouresquare: and the aulter stoode before the house.
The porch of the house.
Ezekiel 40:48 And he brought me to the porche of the house, and measured the porche fiue cubites on this side, and fiue cubites on that side: and the breadth of the gate was three cubites on this side, and three cubites on that side. Ezekiel 40:49 The length of the porche was twentie cubites, the breadth eleuen cubites, and by steps went men vp to it: by the frontes also were pillers, one on this side, and another on that side.
