1 And he brought me out into the outer courtyard, the way toward the north. And he brought me into the room which was opposite the separate place, and which was opposite the building to the north.

2 Along the length which was one hundred ammah, was the north door, the width was fifty ammah.

3 Opposite the inner courtyard of twenty, and opposite the pavement of the outer courtyard, gallery against gallery in threes.

4 And before the rooms, toward the inside, was a walk ten ammah wide, a way of one ammah. And their doors were to the north.

5 And the upper rooms were shorter, because the galleries took away space from them more than from the lower and middle of the building.

6 For they were in threes and had no columns like the columns of the courtyards, so the upper was staggered from the lower and middle from the ground up.

7 As for the outer wall by the side of the rooms, toward the outer courtyard facing the rooms, its length was fifty ammah.

8 For the length of the rooms toward the outer courtyard was fifty ammah, and that facing the Hĕyḵal was one hundred ammah.

9 And below these rooms was the entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer courtyard.

10 In the thickness of the wall of the courtyard toward the east, opposite the separate place and opposite the building, were rooms.

11 And the way in front of them was like the appearance of the rooms which were toward the north, as long and as wide as the others, and all their exits and entrances were according to plan.

12 And according to the doors of the rooms that were toward the south there was a door in front of the way, the way in front of the wall toward the east, as one enters them.

13 And he said to me, “The north rooms and the south rooms, which are opposite the separate place, are the qodesh rooms where the kohenim who approach 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 eat the most qodesh offerings. There they place the most qodesh items, and the grain offering, and the sin offering, and the guilt offering, for the place is qodesh.

14 “When the kohenim enter, they are not to go out of the qodesh room into the outer courtyard, but leave their garments in which they attend there, for they are qodesh, and shall put on other garments and shall draw near to that which is for the people.”

15 And when he had ended measuring the inner House, he brought me out through the gate that faces east, and measured it all around.

16 He measured the east side with the measuring qanĕh, five hundred qanĕh by the measuring qanĕh all around.

17 He measured the north side, five hundred qanĕh by the measuring qanĕh all around.

18 He measured the south side, five hundred qanĕh by the measuring qanĕh.

19 He turned round to the west side and measured five hundred qanĕh by the measuring qanĕh.

20 On the four sides he measured it. It had a wall all around, five hundred long and five hundred wide, to separate the qodesh places from the common.
