The vestibule gateway measurements (Ezek 40:8-40:11)

“Then he measured

The inner vestibule

Of the gateway,

One cubit.

Then he measured

The vestibule

Of the gateway,

Eight cubits.

It pilasters were

Two cubits.

The vestibule

Of the gate

Was at the inner end.

There were

Three recesses

On either side

Of the east gate.

The three were

The same size.

The pilasters

On either side were

The same size.

Then he measured

The width

Of the opening

Of the gateway,

Ten cubits.

The width

Of the gateway was

Thirteen cubits.”

Once again, the bronze man continued with his symmetrical measurements. Somehow the inner vestibule was only 1 cubit or less than 2 feet. However, the whole vestibule of this gateway was 8 cubits or about 13 feet. The pilasters or supporting posts at the inner end were only 2 cubits or about 5 feet. There were 3 recesses or alcoves, all the same size, on either side of the east gate, with the supporting posts the same size also. Now the opening width was 10 cubits or about 16 feet, while the gateway was wider about 13 cubits, about 21 feet wide.
