以西结书 40

新圣殿的异象

1在我们被掳的第二十五年,就是耶路撒冷沦陷的第十四年一月十日,耶和华的灵降在我身上。 在异象中上帝把我带到以色列的一座高山上,山的南面仿佛有一座城。 祂把我带到那里。城的入口站着一个面色如铜的人,手中拿着一条麻绳和一根量竿。 那人对我说:“人子啊,你要留心用眼看,专心用耳听,注意我指示你的一切,因为我带你来这里正是为了要指示你。你要把所见到的一切告诉以色列人。”

外院的门

我看见殿的四周有墙,那人拿了一根三米长的量竿测量这墙,量出墙厚一竿,高一竿。

然后,他带我到殿的东门,走上石阶,来到门口。他量了门洞,宽一竿。 门内有守卫室,长度和宽度都是一竿。室与室之间相距二点二米,通往圣殿的内门洞宽一竿, 通往圣殿的门廊宽度也是一竿, 连墙柱在内共四点二米宽,墙柱宽一点零五米。 10 东门内共有六间守卫室,每边三间,大小面积都是一样,两边的墙尺寸也相同。 11 通道尽头有一道门廊,宽五米,长六点五米。 12 两边守卫室前面的矮墙高五十厘米,守卫室都是三米宽的正方形。 13 他又量门廊的宽度,即这边守卫室的屋顶到对面守卫室的屋顶,是十二点五米。 14 他从门口的墙量到外院的墙柱,是三十米。 15 由门口到通道尽头的内廊共二十五米, 16 守卫室、墙柱上和门廊周围都有格子窗,墙柱上刻着棕树。

外院

17 他带我到外院,外院靠墙的四周是铺石地,上面共有三十间厢房。 18 铺石地在门口的两边,比内院低,宽度与入口的长度一样。 19 他从外院的内门口量到内院的门口,距离是五十米。

北门

20 他又量了外院的北门, 21 通道两边各有三间守卫室,墙和廊子长度和宽度跟东门一样,分别是二十五米和十二点五米。 22 它的窗户、门廊、墙柱上雕刻的棕树都和东门的尺寸相同。登上七级石阶便到达门口,通道的尽头是门廊。 23 内院的北门与外院的北门相对,正如它的东门和外院的东门相对,门与门之间的距离是五十米。

南门

24 他又带我到南门,量了墙柱和门廊,都与其他门的尺寸相同, 25 通道与门廊四周的窗户也和其他的门一样,通道长二十五米,宽十二点五米。 26 登上七级石阶便到门廊,两边的墙柱也同样刻着棕树。 27 内院也有南门,与外院南门之间的距离是五十米。

内院的门

28 他带我从南门走进内院,量了南门,跟其他门的尺寸一样。 29 守卫室、墙柱和门廊都和其他的尺寸一样,通道与门廊四周有窗户,通道长二十五米,宽十二点五米。 30 内院周围的门廊都是长十二点五米,宽二点五米。 31 这些门廊靠外院,两边的墙柱刻着棕树,上去的石阶共有八级。

32 他又带我从东门进入内院,量了东门,跟其他门的尺寸一样, 33 守卫室、墙柱、门廊和其他门的尺寸一样,通道与门廊的四周也有窗户,通道长二十五米,宽十二点五米。 34 门廊靠外院,两边的墙柱刻着棕树,那里的石阶共有八级。

35 他又带我到北门,量了北门,跟其他门的尺寸一样。 36 守卫室、墙柱、门廊和其他门的尺寸一样,通道长二十五米,宽十二点五米,四周有窗户。 37 门廊靠外院,两边的墙柱刻着棕树,那里的石阶共有八级。

厢房

38 门口的墙柱旁边有一个房间,供祭司洗燔祭牲。 39 门廊两边各有两张用来屠宰燔祭牲、赎罪祭牲和赎过祭牲的桌子。 40 内院北门的两边各有两张桌子, 41 即里外各有四张桌子,共八张,供祭司屠宰祭牲之用。 42 另有四张用石头凿成的桌子用来预备燔祭牲,屠宰燔祭牲及其他祭牲的器具都放在桌上。桌子长宽各七十五厘米,高五十厘米。 43 廊内四周挂着七点五厘米长的双钩。桌上放着祭肉。

44 在内院有歌乐手用的厢房,一间向南,在北门旁,一间向北,在南门旁。 45 他对我说:“向南的厢房是给殿内供职的祭司用的, 46 向北的厢房是给坛前供职的祭司用的。他们都是撒督的子孙,利未的后裔,在耶和华面前专职事奉。” 47 他量了殿前的院子,是五十米宽的正方形,祭坛在殿的前面。

圣殿

48 他带我来到殿前通往圣所的门廊,量了两旁的墙柱,各二点五米宽,门两边的墙一点五米厚, 49 门廊长十米,宽四点九米。上门廊靠近墙柱的石级两旁各有一根柱子。

Ezekiel 40

The Temple Area Restored

1In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the fall of the city—on that very day the hand of the Lord was on me and he took me there. In visions of God he took me to the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, on whose south side were some buildings that looked like a city. He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand. The man said to me, “Son of man, look carefully and listen closely and pay attention to everything I am going to show you, for that is why you have been brought here. Tell the people of Israel everything you see.”

The East Gate to the Outer Court

I saw a wall completely surrounding the temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man’s hand was six long cubits,[a] each of which was a cubit and a handbreadth. He measured the wall; it was one measuring rod thick and one rod high.

Then he went to the east gate. He climbed its steps and measured the threshold of the gate; it was one rod deep. The alcoves for the guards were one rod long and one rod wide, and the projecting walls between the alcoves were five cubits[b] thick. And the threshold of the gate next to the portico facing the temple was one rod deep.

Then he measured the portico of the gateway; it[c] was eight cubits[d] deep and its jambs were two cubits[e] thick. The portico of the gateway faced the temple.

10 Inside the east gate were three alcoves on each side; the three had the same measurements, and the faces of the projecting walls on each side had the same measurements. 11 Then he measured the width of the entrance of the gateway; it was ten cubits and its length was thirteen cubits.[f] 12 In front of each alcove was a wall one cubit high, and the alcoves were six cubits square. 13 Then he measured the gateway from the top of the rear wall of one alcove to the top of the opposite one; the distance was twenty-five cubits[g] from one parapet opening to the opposite one. 14 He measured along the faces of the projecting walls all around the inside of the gateway—sixty cubits.[h] The measurement was up to the portico[i] facing the courtyard.[j] 15 The distance from the entrance of the gateway to the far end of its portico was fifty cubits.[k] 16 The alcoves and the projecting walls inside the gateway were surmounted by narrow parapet openings all around, as was the portico; the openings all around faced inward. The faces of the projecting walls were decorated with palm trees.

The Outer Court

17 Then he brought me into the outer court. There I saw some rooms and a pavement that had been constructed all around the court; there were thirty rooms along the pavement. 18 It abutted the sides of the gateways and was as wide as they were long; this was the lower pavement. 19 Then he measured the distance from the inside of the lower gateway to the outside of the inner court; it was a hundred cubits[l] on the east side as well as on the north.

The North Gate

20 Then he measured the length and width of the north gate, leading into the outer court. 21 Its alcoves—three on each side—its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as those of the first gateway. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 22 Its openings, its portico and its palm tree decorations had the same measurements as those of the gate facing east. Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them. 23 There was a gate to the inner court facing the north gate, just as there was on the east. He measured from one gate to the opposite one; it was a hundred cubits.

The South Gate

24 Then he led me to the south side and I saw the south gate. He measured its jambs and its portico, and they had the same measurements as the others. 25 The gateway and its portico had narrow openings all around, like the openings of the others. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 26 Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them; it had palm tree decorations on the faces of the projecting walls on each side. 27 The inner court also had a gate facing south, and he measured from this gate to the outer gate on the south side; it was a hundred cubits.

The Gates to the Inner Court

28 Then he brought me into the inner court through the south gate, and he measured the south gate; it had the same measurements as the others. 29 Its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as the others. The gateway and its portico had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 30 (The porticoes of the gateways around the inner court were twenty-five cubits wide and five cubits deep.) 31 Its portico faced the outer court; palm trees decorated its jambs, and eight steps led up to it.

32 Then he brought me to the inner court on the east side, and he measured the gateway; it had the same measurements as the others. 33 Its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as the others. The gateway and its portico had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 34 Its portico faced the outer court; palm trees decorated the jambs on either side, and eight steps led up to it.

35 Then he brought me to the north gate and measured it. It had the same measurements as the others, 36 as did its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico, and it had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 37 Its portico[m] faced the outer court; palm trees decorated the jambs on either side, and eight steps led up to it.

The Rooms for Preparing Sacrifices

38 A room with a doorway was by the portico in each of the inner gateways, where the burnt offerings were washed. 39 In the portico of the gateway were two tables on each side, on which the burnt offerings, sin offerings[n] and guilt offerings were slaughtered. 40 By the outside wall of the portico of the gateway, near the steps at the entrance of the north gateway were two tables, and on the other side of the steps were two tables. 41 So there were four tables on one side of the gateway and four on the other—eight tables in all—on which the sacrifices were slaughtered. 42 There were also four tables of dressed stone for the burnt offerings, each a cubit and a half long, a cubit and a half wide and a cubit high.[o] On them were placed the utensils for slaughtering the burnt offerings and the other sacrifices. 43 And double-pronged hooks, each a handbreadth[p] long, were attached to the wall all around. The tables were for the flesh of the offerings.

The Rooms for the Priests

44 Outside the inner gate, within the inner court, were two rooms, one[q] at the side of the north gate and facing south, and another at the side of the south[r] gate and facing north. 45 He said to me, “The room facing south is for the priests who guard the temple, 46 and the room facing north is for the priests who guard the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, who are the only Levites who may draw near to the Lord to minister before him.”

47 Then he measured the court: It was square—a hundred cubits long and a hundred cubits wide. And the altar was in front of the temple.

The New Temple

48 He brought me to the portico of the temple and measured the jambs of the portico; they were five cubits wide on either side. The width of the entrance was fourteen cubits[s] and its projecting walls were[t] three cubits[u] wide on either side. 49 The portico was twenty cubits[v] wide, and twelve[w] cubits[x] from front to back. It was reached by a flight of stairs,[y] and there were pillars on each side of the jambs.
