He measured along the faces of the projecting walls all around the inside of the gateway—sixty cubits. The measurement was up to the portico facing the courtyard.
He made the side pillars sixty cubits high; the gate extended round about to the side pillar of the courtyard.
He measured the dividing walls all along the inside of the gateway up to the gateway’s foyer; this distance was 105 feet.
He measured the inside walls of the gate complex: ninety feet to the porch leading into the courtyard.
And he took the measure of the covered way, twenty cubits; and opening from the covered way of the doorway was the open square round about.
He measured also the vestibule, twenty cubits; and the gate next to the pilaster on every side of the court.
He measured the gateposts, sixty cubits high, and the court all around the gateway extended to the gatepost.

1 tn Heb “made.”
2 tc The MT reads “jambs” which does not make sense in context. Supposing a confusion of yod for vav, the text may be emended to read “porch.” See D. I. Block, Ezekiel (NICOT), 2:518.
3 tn Heb “sixty cubits” (i.e., 31.5 meters).
4 tn The word “high” is not in the Hebrew text but is supplied for sense.
