“28 Then he took me to the inner square by the south doorway: and he took the measure of the south doorway by these measures; 29 And the rooms in it and the uprights and the covered ways, by these measures: 30 And there were windows in it and in the covered way all round: it was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 31 The covered way was on the side nearest the outer square; and there were palm-trees on the uprights: and there were eight steps going up to it. 32 And he took me into the inner square facing the east: and he took the measure of the doorway by these measures; 33 And of the rooms in it and its uprights and its covered ways, by these measures: and there were windows in it and in the covered way round about: it was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 34 And the covered way was on the side nearest the outer square; there were palm-trees on the uprights, on this side and on that: and there were eight steps going up to it. 35 And he took me to the north doorway: and he took the measure of it by these measures; 36 Its rooms, its uprights, and its covered way had the same measures, and its covered way had windows all round: it was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 37 Its uprights were on the side nearest to the outer square; there were palm-trees on the uprights, on this side and on that: and there were eight steps going up to it. 38 And there was a room with a door in the covered way of the doorway, where the burned offering was washed. 39 And in the covered way of the doorway there were two tables on this side and two tables on that side, on which the burned offering and the sin-offering and the offering for error were put to death: 40 On the outer side, to the north, as one goes up to the opening of the doorway, were two tables. 41 There were four tables on one side and four tables on the other, by the side of the doorway; eight tables, on which they put to death the beasts for the offerings. 42 And there were four tables for the burned offering, made of cut stone, one and a half cubits long, one and a half cubits wide and a cubit high, where the instruments were placed which were used for putting to death the burned offering and the beasts for the offerings. 43 And they had edges all round as wide as a man’s hand: and on the tables was the flesh of the offerings. 44 And he took me into the inner square, and there were two rooms in the inner square, one at the side of the north doorway, facing south; and one at the side of the south doorway, facing north. 45 And he said to me, This room, facing south, is for the priests who have the care of the house. 46 And the room facing north is for the priests who have the care of the altar: these are the sons of Zadok, who, from among the sons of Levi, come near to the Lord to do the work of his house. 47 And he took the measure of the open square, a hundred cubits long and a hundred cubits wide, being square; and the altar was in front of the house. 48 Then he took me to the covered way before the house, and took the measure of its uprights, five cubits on one side and five cubits on the other: and the doorway was fourteen cubits wide; and the side-walls of the doorway were three cubits on one side and three cubits on the other. 49 The covered way was twenty cubits long and twelve cubits wide, and they went up to it by ten steps; and there were pillars by the uprights, one on one side and one on the other. 1 And he took me to the Temple, and took the measure of the uprights, six cubits wide on one side and six cubits wide on the other. 2 And the door-opening was ten cubits wide; and the side walls of the door-opening were five cubits on one side and five cubits on the other: and it was forty cubits long and twenty cubits wide. 3 And he went inside and took the measure of the uprights of the door-opening, two cubits: and the door-opening, six cubits; and the side-walls of the door-opening were seven cubits on one side and seven cubits on the other. 4 And by his measure it was twenty cubits long and twenty cubits wide in front of the Temple: and he said to me, This is the most holy place. 5 Then he took the measure of the wall of the house, which was six cubits; and of the side-rooms round the house, which were four cubits wide. 6 And the side-rooms, room over room, were three times thirty; there were inlets in the wall of the house for the side-rooms round about, for supports in the wall of the house. 7 The side-rooms became wider as they went higher up the house, by the amount of the space let into the wall up round about the house, because of the inlets in the house; and one went up from the lowest floor by steps to the middle, and from the middle to the upper floor. 8 And I saw that the house had a stone floor all round; the bases of the side-rooms were a full rod of six great cubits high. 9 The wall supporting the side-rooms on the outside was five cubits thick: and there was a free space of five cubits between the side-rooms of the house. 10 And between the rooms was a space twenty cubits wide all round the house. 11 And the free space had doors opening from the side-rooms, one door on the north and one door on the south: and the free space was five cubits wide all round. 12 And the building which was in front of the separate place at the side to the west was seventy cubits wide; the wall of the building was five cubits thick all round and ninety cubits long. 13 And he took the measure of the house; it was a hundred cubits long; and the separate place and the building with its walls was a hundred cubits long; 14 And the east front of the house and of the separate place was a hundred cubits wide. 15 And he took the measure of the building in front of the separate place which was at the back of it, and the pillared walks on one side and on the other side; they were a hundred cubits long; and the Temple and the inner part and its outer covered way were covered in; 16 And the sloping windows and the covered ways round all three of them were of shakiph-wood all round from the level of the earth up to the windows; 17 And there was a roof over the doorway and as far as the inner house, and to the outside and on the wall all round, inside and outside. 18 And it had pictured forms of winged beings and palm-trees; a palm-tree between two winged ones, and every winged one had two faces; 19 So that there was the face of a man turned to the palm-tree on one side, and the face of a young lion on the other side: so it was made all round the house. 20 From earth level up to the windows there were winged ones and palm-trees pictured on the wall. 21 ... 22 The altar was made of wood, and was three cubits high and two cubits long; it had angles, and its base and sides were of wood; and he said to me, This is the table which is before the Lord. 23 The Temple had two doors. 24 And the holy place had two doors, and the doors had two turning leaves, two for one and two for the other. 25 And on them were pictured winged ones and palm-trees, as on the walls; and a...of wood was on the front of the covered way outside. 26 And there were sloping windows and palm-trees on one side and on the other, on the sides of the covered way: and the side-rooms of the house and the...”

Top James 4:1-17, BBE.

“1 What is the cause of wars and fighting among you? is it not in your desires which are at war in your bodies? 2 You are burning with desire, and have not your desire, so you put men to death; you are full of envy, and you are not able to get your desire, so you are fighting and making war; you have not your desire, because you do not make request for it. 3 You make your request but you do not get it, because your request has been wrongly made, desiring the thing only so that you may make use of it for your pleasure. 4 O you who are false to God, do you not see that the friends of this world are not God’s friends? Every man desiring to be a friend of this world makes himself a hater of God. 5 Or does it seem to you that it is for nothing that the holy Writings say, The spirit which God put into our hearts has a strong desire for us? 6 But he gives more grace. So that the Writings say, God is against the men of pride, but he gives grace to those who make themselves low before him. 7 For this cause be ruled by God; but make war on the Evil One and he will be put to flight before you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Make your hands clean, you evil-doers; put away deceit from your hearts, you false in mind. 9 Be troubled, with sorrow and weeping; let your laughing be turned to sorrow and your joy to grief. 10 Make yourselves low in the eyes of the Lord and you will be lifted up by him. 11 Do not say evil against one another, my brothers. He who says evil against his brother or makes himself his brother’s judge, says evil against the law and is judging the law: and in judging the law you become, not a doer of the law but a judge. 12 There is only one judge and law-giver, even he who has the power of salvation and of destruction; but who are you to be your neighbour’s judge? 13 How foolish it is to say, Today or tomorrow we will go into this town, and be there for a year and do business there and get wealth: 14 When you are not certain what will take place tomorrow. What is your life? It is a mist, which is seen for a little time and then is gone. 15 But the right thing to say would be, If it is the Lord’s pleasure and if we are still living, we will do this and that. 16 But now you go on glorying in your pride: and all such glorying is evil. 17 The man who has knowledge of how to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.”

Top Psalms 118:19-29, BBE.

“19 Let the doors of righteousness be open to me; I will go in and give praise to the Lord. 20 This is the door of the Lord’s house; the workers of righteousness will go in through it. 21 I will give you praise, for you have given me an answer, and have become my salvation. 22 The stone which the builders put on one side has become the chief stone of the building. 23 This is the Lord’s doing; it is a wonder in our eyes. 24 This is the day which the Lord has made; we will be full of joy and delight in it. 25 Send salvation now, O Lord; Lord, send us your blessing. 26 A blessing be on him who comes in the name of the Lord; we give you blessing from the house of the Lord. 27 The Lord is God, and he has given us light; let the holy dance be ordered with branches, even up to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I will give you praise; my God, and I will give honour to your name. 29 O give praise to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy is unchanging for ever.”

Top Proverbs 28:3-5, BBE.

“3 A man of wealth who is cruel to the poor is like a violent rain causing destruction of food. 4 Those who have no respect for the law give praise to the evil-doer; but such as keep the law are against him. 5 Evil men have no knowledge of what is right; but those who go after the Lord have knowledge of all things.”
