エゼキエル書 42

祭司の部屋

1それから、その人は私を神殿から連れ出し、内庭にある神殿の北側の部屋と、もう一つの建物に連れて行きました。 これらの建物のある場所は、長さが百キュビト、幅が五十キュビトありました。 この建物の裏に階段式の小部屋があり、庭の内側の壁になっていました。この階段式の小部屋は三階までありました。その片側から外庭が見渡せ、もう一方の側は長さ二十キュビトの内庭に面していました。 その建物と階段式の小部屋との間に、幅十キュビト、全長百キュビトの通路があり、その建物の入口は北に向いていました。 二階、三階と上に行くほど通路が広くなり、その分だけ部屋が狭くなりました。 この建物は、外庭の建物と違って大梁を用いていないため、上の階へ行くにしたがって狭くなっていたのです。 7-8 北側に並んだ階段式の小部屋は外庭に続いており、その全長は五十キュビトでした。神殿の内庭に面した側は百キュビトあったので、その半分の長さです。外側の塀が、短い側の端から長い側へと平行して伸びていました。

9-10 外庭からこれらの小部屋へ入る入口は東側にありました。神殿をはさんで反対側にも、神殿と外庭との間にある内庭の南側に、同じように二組の建物がありました。構造は北側のものと全く同じでした。 11 庭の向こう側の建物と同じように、この二組の建物の間にも通路があり、建物の長さも幅も、出入口も戸も全く同じでした。 12 また、外庭からの入口は東側にありました。

13 その人は私にこう言いました。「この、神殿に面している北と南の階段式の部屋は、聖なる部屋だ。そこで、神にいけにえをささげる祭司たちが、最も聖なるいけにえである、穀物のささげ物、罪の赦しのためのいけにえ、罪過を償ういけにえを食べたり、たくわえたりするのだ。 14 祭司は聖所(神殿の本堂)を出るときには、外庭へ出る前に服を着替えなければならない。聖所で仕えるときに着る服は聖なるものだから、まずそれを脱がなければならない。だれもが入れる場所へ行くときには、他の服に着替えなければならない。」

15 その人は神殿を測り終えると、私を東の門から連れ出して、神殿の周囲を測りました。 16-20 それは五百キュビト平方で、ほかの公共の場所と区別するために塀で囲まれていました。

Amplified Bible

Ezekiel 42

Chambers of the Temple

1Then he (the angel) brought me out into the outer courtyard, toward the north; and he led me to the [attached] chamber which was opposite the separate area and opposite the building to the north. Along the length, one hundred cubits, was the north door; and the width was fifty cubits. Opposite the twenty cubits which belonged to the inner courtyard, and opposite the pavement which belonged to the outer courtyard, was gallery (balcony) corresponding to gallery in three stories. In front of the [attached] chambers was an inner walkway ten cubits wide [a]and one hundred cubits long; and their entrances were on the north. Now the upper chambers were smaller because the galleries took away more space from them than from the chambers on the lower and middle stories of the building; for they were in three stories and did not have pillars like the pillars of the [outer] courtyards; therefore the upper chambers were [b]set back from the ground more than the lower and the middle ones. And the outer wall, by the side of the chambers, toward the outer courtyard facing the chambers, was fifty cubits long. For the length of the chambers which were in the outer courtyard was fifty cubits, [c]while the length of those facing the temple was a hundred cubits. Below these chambers was the entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer courtyard.

10 In the width of the wall of the courtyard toward the east, facing the separate area and facing the building, were chambers; 11 and a passage in front of them was like the appearance of the [attached] chambers on the north, and they had the same length and width, and all their exits were like both their [d]arrangements and their entrances. 12 And like the entrances of the chambers that were toward the south there was an entrance at the head of the walkway, the walkway in front of the [e]dividing wall toward the east, as one enters them.

13 Then he (the angel) said to me, “The north chambers and the south chambers, which are opposite the separate area, are the holy chambers where the priests who are close to the Lord shall eat the most holy offerings. There they shall place the most holy things—the grain offering, the sin offering, and the guilt offering—for the place is holy. 14 When the priests enter [the Holy Place], they shall not go out from the sanctuary into the outer court [f]unless they lay there their garments in which they minister, for these are holy (set apart). They shall put on other garments before they approach that which is for the people.”

15 Now when he had finished measuring the inner temple, he brought me out toward the gate which faced east and measured the outer area all around. 16 He measured the east side with the measuring [g]rod, five hundred rods by the measuring rod. 17 He measured the north side, five hundred rods by the measuring rod. 18 He measured the south side, five hundred rods by the measuring rod. 19 He turned about to the west side and measured five hundred rods by the measuring rod. 20 He measured it on the four sides; it had a wall all around, the length five hundred and the width five hundred, to make a separation between that which was holy [the temple proper] and that which was common [the outer area].
