39 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt-offering, and a the sin-offering, and r the trespass-offering.

40 And at the side without, || as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables.

41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices.

42 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt-offering, of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit high: whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt-offering and the sacrifice.

43 And within were hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about: and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.

44 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers in the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate; and their prospect was toward the south: one at the side of the east gate having the prospect toward the north.

45 And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward the south, is for the priests, t the keepers of the || charge of the house.

46 And the chamber whose proSpect is toward the north, is for the priests, u the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the sons of x Zadok among the sons of Levi, which come near to the LORD to minister unto him.

47 So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an hundred cubits broad, four-square; and the altar that was before the house.

48 1 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side and the breadth of the gate was three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side.

49 y The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; and he brought me by the steps whereby they went up 21 Kings 7. to it: and there were 2 pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side.

9 The thickness of the wall, which was for the side-chamber without, was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side-chambers that were within.

11 And the doors of the sidechambers were toward the place that was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about.

12 Now the building that was before the separate place at the end toward the west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building was fivo cubits thick round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits.

20 From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palmtrees made, and on the wall of the temple.

21 The † posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the other.

5 Now the upper chambers were shorter for the galleries | were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.
