Ezekiel 40

The time, manner, and end of the vision.

Ezekiel 40:1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth [day] of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day, the hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me thither. Ezekiel 40:2 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me down upon a very high mountain, whereon was as it were the frame of a city on the south. Ezekiel 40:3 And he brought me thither, and behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate. Ezekiel 40:4 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto 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 man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long, of a cubit and an handbreadth each: so he measured the thickness of the building, one reed; and the height, one reed.

The description of the east gate,

Ezekiel 40:6 Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and went up the steps thereof; and he measured the threshold of the gate, one reed broad: and the other threshold, one reed broad. Ezekiel 40:7 And every lodge was one reed long, and one reed broad; and [the space] between the lodges was five cubits; and the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate toward the house was one reed. Ezekiel 40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate toward the house, one reed. Ezekiel 40:9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the posts thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was toward the house. Ezekiel 40:10 And the lodges of the gate eastward were three on this side, and three on that side; they three were of one measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on that side. Ezekiel 40:11 And he measured the breadth of the opening of the gate, ten cubits; and the length of the gate thirteen cubits; Ezekiel 40:12 and a border before the lodges one cubit [on this side], and a border, one cubit on that side; and the lodges six cubits on this side, and six cubit on that side. Ezekiel 40:13 And he measured the gate from the roof of the one lodge to the roof of the other, a breadth of five and twenty cubits; door against door. Ezekiel 40:14 He made also posts, threescore cubits; and the court [reached] unto the post, the gate [being] round about. Ezekiel 40:15 And [from] the forefront of the gate at the entrance unto the forefront of the inner porch of the gate were fifty cubits. Ezekiel 40:16 And there were closed windows to the lodges, and to their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the arches: and windows were round about inward: and upon [each] post were palm trees. Ezekiel 40:17 Then brought he me into the outer court, and, lo, there were chambers and a pavement, made for the court round about: thirty chambers were upon the pavement. Ezekiel 40:18 And the pavement was by the side of the gates, answerable unto the length of the gates, even the lower pavement. Ezekiel 40:19 Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower gate unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred cubits, [both] on the east and on the north.

of the north gate,

Ezekiel 40:20 And the gate of the outer court whose prospect is toward the north, he measured the length thereof and the breadth thereof. Ezekiel 40:21 And the lodges thereof were three on this side and three on that side; and the posts thereof and the arches thereof were after the measure of the first gate: the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits. Ezekiel 40:22 And the windows thereof, and the arches thereof, and the palm trees thereof, were after the measure of the gate whose prospect is toward the east; and they went up unto it by seven steps; and the arches thereof were before them. Ezekiel 40:23 And there was a gate to the inner court over against the [other] gate, [both] on the north and on the east; and he measured from gate to gate an hundred cubits.

of the south gate,

Ezekiel 40:24 And he led me toward the south, and behold a gate toward the south: and he measured the posts thereof and the arches thereof according to these measures. Ezekiel 40:25 And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about, like those windows: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits. Ezekiel 40:26 And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches thereof were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof. Ezekiel 40:27 And there was a gate to the inner court toward the south: and he measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred cubits. Ezekiel 40:28 Then he 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 lodges thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof; according to these measures: and there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad. Ezekiel 40:30 And there were arches round about, five and twenty cubits long, and five cubits broad. Ezekiel 40:31 And the arches thereof were toward the outer court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had eight steps.

of the east gate,

Ezekiel 40:32 And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he measured the gate according to these measures; Ezekiel 40:33 and the lodges thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, according to these measures: and there were windows therein and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad. Ezekiel 40:34 And the arches thereof were toward the outer court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps.

and of the north gate.

Ezekiel 40:35 And he brought me to the north gate: and he measured [it] according to these measures; Ezekiel 40:36 the lodges thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches thereof; and there were windows therein round about: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits. Ezekiel 40:37 And the posts thereof were toward the outer court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps. Ezekiel 40:38 And a chamber with the door thereof was by the posts at the gates; there 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 sin offering and the guilt offering. Ezekiel 40:40 And on the [one] side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the gate toward the north, were two tables; and on the other side, which belonged to the porch of the gate, were two tables. Ezekiel 40:41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew [the sacrifices]. Ezekiel 40:42 And there were four tables for the burnt offering, of hewn stone, a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit high: whereupon they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt offering and the sacrifice. Ezekiel 40:43 And the hooks, an handbreadth long, were fastened within round about: and upon the tables was the flesh of the oblation.

The chambers.

Ezekiel 40:44 And without the inner gate were chambers for 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 having the prospect toward the north. Ezekiel 40:45 And he said unto 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 sons of Zadok, which from among the sons of Levi come near to the LORD to minister unto him. Ezekiel 40:47 And he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an hundred cubits broad, foursquare; and the altar was before the house.

The porch of the house.

Ezekiel 40:48 Then he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side: and the breadth of the gate was three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side. Ezekiel 40:49 The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; even by the steps whereby they went up to it: and there were pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side.
