Ezekiel 41:1-26
1. Then he brought me to the nave and measured the side pillars; six cubits wide on each side was the width of the side pillar.
2. The width of the entrance was ten cubits and the sides of the entrance were five cubits on each side. And he measured the length of the nave, forty cubits, and the width, twenty cubits.
3. Then he went inside and measured each side pillar of the doorway, two cubits, and the doorway, six cubits high; and the width of the doorway, seven cubits.
4. He measured its length, twenty cubits, and the width, twenty cubits, before the nave; and he said to me, "This is the most holy place."
5. Then he measured the wall of the temple, six cubits; and the width of the side chambers, four cubits, all around about the house on every side.
6. The side chambers were in three stories, one above another, and thirty in each story; and the side chambers extended to the wall which stood on their inward side all around, that they might be fastened, and not be fastened into the wall of the temple itself.
7. The side chambers surrounding the temple were wider at each successive story. Because the structure surrounding the temple went upward by stages on all sides of the temple, therefore the width of the temple increased as it went higher; and thus one went up from the lowest story to the highest by way of the second story.
8. I saw also that the house had a raised platform all around; the foundations of the side chambers were a full rod of six long cubits in height.
9. The thickness of the outer wall of the side chambers was five cubits. But the free space between the side chambers belonging to the temple
10. and the outer chambers was twenty cubits in width all around the temple on every side.
11. The doorways of the side chambers toward the free space consisted of one doorway toward the north and another doorway toward the south; and the width of the free space was five cubits all around.
12. The building that was in front of the separate area at the side toward the west was seventy cubits wide; and the wall of the building was five cubits thick all around, and its length was ninety cubits.
13. Then he measured the temple, a hundred cubits long; the separate area with the building and its walls were also a hundred cubits long.
14. Also the width of the front of the temple and that of the separate areas along the east side totaled a hundred cubits.
15. He measured the length of the building along the front of the separate area behind it, with a gallery on each side, a hundred cubits; he also measured the inner nave and the porches of the court.
16. The thresholds, the latticed windows and the galleries round about their three stories, opposite the threshold, were paneled with wood all around, and from the ground to the windows (but the windows were covered),
17. over the entrance, and to the inner house, and on the outside, and on all the wall all around inside and outside, by measurement.
18. It was carved with cherubim and palm trees; and a palm tree was between cherub and cherub, and every cherub had two faces,
19. a man's face toward the palm tree on one side and a young lion's face toward the palm tree on the other side; they were carved on all the house all around.
20. From the ground to above the entrance cherubim and palm trees were carved, as well as on the wall of the nave.
21. The doorposts of the nave were square; as for the front of the sanctuary, the appearance of one doorpost was like that of the other.
22. The altar was of wood, three cubits high and its length two cubits; its corners, its base and its sides were of wood. And he said to me, "This is the table that is before the LORD."
23. The nave and the sanctuary each had a double door.
24. Each of the doors had two leaves, two swinging leaves; two leaves for one door and two leaves for the other.
25. Also there were carved on them, on the doors of the nave, cherubim and palm trees like those carved on the walls; and there was a threshold of wood on the front of the porch outside.
26. There were latticed windows and palm trees on one side and on the other, on the sides of the porch; thus were the side chambers of the house and the thresholds.

Ezekiel 42:1-20
1. Then he brought me out into the outer court, the way toward the north; and he brought me to the chamber which was opposite the separate area and opposite the building toward the north.
2. Along the length, which was a hundred cubits, was the north door; the width was fifty cubits.
3. Opposite the twenty cubits which belonged to the inner court, and opposite the pavement which belonged to the outer court, was gallery corresponding to gallery in three stories.
4. Before the chambers was an inner walk ten cubits wide, a way of one hundred cubits; and their openings were on the north.
5. Now the upper chambers were smaller because the galleries took more space away from them than from the lower and middle ones in the building.
6. For they were in three stories and had no pillars like the pillars of the courts; therefore the upper chambers were set back from the ground upward, more than the lower and middle ones.
7. As for the outer wall by the side of the chambers, toward the outer court facing the chambers, its length was fifty cubits.
8. For the length of the chambers which were in the outer court was fifty cubits; and behold, the length of those facing the temple was a hundred cubits.
9. Below these chambers was the entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court.
10. In the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, facing the separate area and facing the building, there were chambers.
11. The way in front of them was like the appearance of the chambers which were on the north, according to their length so was their width, and all their exits were both according to their arrangements and openings.
12. Corresponding to the openings of the chambers which were toward the south was an opening at the head of the way, the way in front of the wall toward the east, as one enters them.
13. Then he said to me, "The north chambers and the south chambers, which are opposite the separate area, they are the holy chambers where the priests who are near to the LORD shall eat the most holy things. There they shall lay the most holy things, the grain offering, the sin offering and the guilt offering; for the place is holy.
14. "When the priests enter, then they shall not go out into the outer court from the sanctuary without laying there their garments in which they minister, for they are holy. They shall put on other garments; then they shall approach that which is for the people."
15. Now when he had finished measuring the inner house, he brought me out by the way of the gate which faced toward the east and measured it all around.
16. He measured on the east side with the measuring reed five hundred reeds by the measuring reed.
17. He measured on the north side five hundred reeds by the measuring reed.
18. On the south side he measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
19. He turned to the west side and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
20. He measured it on the four sides; it had a wall all around, the length five hundred and the width five hundred, to divide between the holy and the profane.

Psalms 133:1-3
1. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity!
2. It is like the precious oil upon the head, Coming down upon the beard, Even Aaron's beard, Coming down upon the edge of his robes.
3. It is like the dew of Hermon Coming down upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing--life forever.

Proverbs 29:6-6
6. By transgression an evil man is ensnared, But the righteous sings and rejoices.

1 Peter 1:1-25
1. Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who reside as aliens, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, who are chosen
2. according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure.
3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4. to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
5. who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6. In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials,
7. so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
8. and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,
9. obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.
10. As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries,
11. seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow.
12. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven--things into which angels long to look.
13. Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
14. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,
15. but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;
16. because it is written, "YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY."
17. If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;
18. knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers,
19. but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
20. For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you
21. who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
22. Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart,
23. for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.
24. For, "ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,
25. BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER." And this is the word which was preached to you.
