Ezekiel 42
Ezekiel's vision of the temple in which he sees the outer courts.
Contributed by Biblia Prints
In Ezekiel’s vision the ‘man’ led him through the north gate out into the outer courtyard. – Slide 1
Here were buildings with many rooms where the priests would eat the most holy offerings (v13). – Slide 2
The building whose door faced north was 100 cubits long and the building opposite it was 50 cubits in length. – Slide 3
The rooms were in three tiers, overlooking the outer court on one side. – Slide 4
In front of the rooms was an inner passageway ten cubits wide and a hundred cubits long. – Slide 5
The upper two tiers of rooms were not as wide as the lower one, because the upper tiers had wider walkways beside them. – Slide 6
There was a wall, 50 cubits long, that was parallel to the rooms and ran along the outer courtyard. The row of rooms that ran along the outer courtyard was also 50 cubits long. – Slide 7
On the south side, by the restricted area, there were buildings like those on the north side. – Slide 8
When the man had finished measuring inside the Temple area he brought Ezekiel out through the East gate and measured all around that area. – Slide 9
It was 500 reeds square (KJV - note modern translations have this at 500 cubits). The surrounding wall separated the holy from the outside areas. – Slide 10
Note: These images are artistic representations of Ezekiel’s vision based on the Biblical account, created from a 3D rendered model by Biblia Prints. There is debate over the exact length of a long cubit (a cubit and a handwidth) in Ezekiel’s vision. – Slide 11
