:B:1 In the twenty-fifth year of our captivity, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth day of the month, fourteen years after Jerusalem had been taken, the hand of Yahweh was upon me. 2 In a divine vision he took me away to the land of Israel and put me down on a very high mountain, on the south of which there seemed to be built a city. 3 He took me to it, and there I saw a man who seemed to be made of bronze. He had a flax cord and a measuring rod in his hand and was standing in the gateway. 4 The man said to me, Son of man, look carefully, listen closely and pay attention to everything I show you, since they brought you here for me to show it to you. Tell the people of Israel everything that you see.
5 The House was surrounded with a wall, and the man was holding a measuring rod that was three meters long (six great cubits). He measured the thickness of this construction one rod
6 He went to the east gate, climbed the steps and measured its threshold: one rod deep. 7 Each guardroom one rod by one rod
17 He took me through to the outer court. There were rooms and a paved terrace going all the way around
20 He measured the length and breadth of the north gate of the outer court. 21 It had three guardrooms on each side
24 He took me to the south and there was a gate to the south gate
28 He then took me into the inner court by the south gate
32 He took me to the east gate and measured it. It was the same size as the others. 33 Its guardrooms, the thickness of its walls, its entrance all measured the same as the others. The gate and its entrance had windows all around. Its area was fifty cubits by twenty-five cubits. 34 Its porch gave on to the outer court. There were palm trees on its pillars on either side, and eight steps leading up to it.
35 He took me to the north gate and measured it. Its guardrooms, the thickness of its walls and its entrance all measured the same as the others. 36 It had windows all around. Its area was fifty cubits by twenty-five cubits. 37 Its en trance gave on to the outer court. There were palm trees on its pillars on either side, and eight steps leading up to it.
38 There was a room entered from the entrance of the gates. It was here that they had to wash the holocaust. 39 And on either side of the entrance of the gate there were two tables for slaughtering the burnt offering, the sacrifice for sin and the sacrifice of repayment. 40 Going northward up to the gate, there were two tables outside and two more tables at the entrance end of the gate. 41 There were four tables on the inside and four tables on the outside of the entrance
44 He took me into the inner court
47 He measured the inner court. It was a quadrangle, a hundred cubits by a hundred cubits, with the altar in front of the House.
48 He took me to the Hall of the House and measured its door pillars five cubits each side
