Ezekiel 40; Acts 4
Ezekiel 40
1)In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither.
2)In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south.
3)And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.
4)And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.
5)And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and an hand breadth: so he measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and the height, one reed.
6)Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and went up the stairs thereof, and measured the threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad; and the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad.
7)And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad; and between the little chambers were five cubits; and the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within was one reed.
8)He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.
9)Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the posts thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was inward.
10)And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on this side, and three on that side; they three were of one measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on that side.
11)And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten cubits; and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.
12)The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on this side, and the space was one cubit on that side: and the little chambers were six cubits on this side, and six cubits on that side.
13)He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber to the roof of another: the breadth was five and twenty cubits, door against door.
14)He made also posts of threescore cubits, even unto the post of the court round about the gate.
15)And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of the porch of the inner gate were fifty cubits.
16)And there were narrow windows to the little chambers, and to their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the arches: and windows were round about inward: and upon each post were palm trees.
17)Then brought he me into the outward court, and, lo, there were chambers, and a pavement made for the court round about: thirty chambers were upon the pavement.
18)And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the length of the gates was the lower pavement.
19)Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower gate unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred cubits eastward and northward.
20)And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the north, he measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof.
21)And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and three on that side; and the posts thereof and the arches thereof were after the measure of the first gate: the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits.
22)And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees, were after the measure of the gate that looketh toward the east; and they went up unto it by seven steps; and the arches thereof were before them.
23)And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate toward the north, and toward the east; and he measured from gate to gate an hundred cubits.
24)After that he brought me toward the south, and behold a gate toward the south: and he measured the posts thereof and the arches thereof according to these measures.
25)And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about, like those windows: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits.
26)And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches thereof were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof.
27)And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south: and he measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred cubits.
28)And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate: and he measured the south gate according to these measures;
29)And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, according to these measures: and there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad.
30)And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long, and five cubits broad.
31)And the arches thereof were toward the utter court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had eight steps.
32)And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he measured the gate according to these measures.
33)And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, were according to these measures: and there were windows therein and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad.
34)And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps.
35)And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according to these measures;
36)The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits.
37)And the posts thereof were toward the utter court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps.
38)And the chambers and the entries thereof were by the posts of the gates, where they washed the burnt offering.
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 the sin offering and 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, the keepers of the charge of the house.
46)And the chamber whose prospect is toward the north is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the sons of 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, foursquare; and the altar that was before the house.
48)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)The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; and he brought me by the steps whereby they went up to it: and there were pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side.
Acts 4
1)And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,
2)Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
3)And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
4)Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.
5)And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,
6)And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.
7)And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?
8)Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
9)If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
10)Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
11)This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
12)Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
13)Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
14)And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.
15)But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,
16)Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.
17)But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.
18)And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
19)But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.
20)For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
21)So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.
22)For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.
23)And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.
24)And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:
25)Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?
26)The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
27)For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
28)For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
29)And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
30)By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
31)And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
32)And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
33)And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
34)Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
35)And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
36)And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,
37)Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
