Go to Commentary on Ezek 42

1Then he brought me out into the outer court, the way toward the north, and he brought me into the room that was opposite the separate area, and which was opposite the building toward the north.
  2Along the length, which was 100 cubits, was the north door; the width was 50 cubits.
  3Opposite the 20 cubits which belonged to the inner court, and opposite the pavement which belonged to the outer court, was a gallery facing a gallery in three stories.
  4And before the rooms was a passage inward that was ten cubits wide, a way of one hundred cubits, and their entrances were on the north.
  5Now the upper rooms were narrower because the galleries took more space away from these than from the lower and the middle rooms in the building.
  6For they were in three stories, and they did not have pillars like the pillars that were in the courts; so the upper rooms were set back from the ground more than the lower and the middle ones.
  7And there was a wall outside that ran in front of the rooms, parallel to the rooms, toward the outer court; it was fifty cubits long.
  8For the length of the rooms that were in the outer court was fifty cubits, and behold, the length of those facing the temple was 100 cubits.
  9And below these rooms was the entrance on the east side, as one enters them from the outer court.

10In the breadth of the wall of the court toward the east,a facing the separate area and facing the building, there were rooms.
  11And the passageway in front of them was like the appearance of the rooms that were toward the north; of the same length and breadth, and with the same exits and arrangements and doors.
  12And corresponding to the entrances of the rooms that were toward the south was an entrance at the beginning of the passage, even the passage right in front of the wall on the east, as one enters them.

13Then he said to me, “The north rooms and the south rooms, which are before the separate place, they are the holy rooms where the priests who are near to Yahweh will eat the most holy things. There will they place the most holy things: even the grain offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering, for the place is holy.
  14When the priests enter in, then must they not go out of the holy place into the outer court without leaving behind their garments in which they minister; for they are holy. They are to put on other garments before they approach the places that pertain to the people.”

15Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me out by the way of the gate that faced toward the east, and measured the Temple area all around.

 16 He measured on the east side with the measuring reed

 500 reeds, with the measuring reed all around.

 17 He measured on the north side

 500 reeds with the measuring reed all around.

 18 He measured on the south side

 500 reeds with the measuring reed.

 19 He turned around to the west side

 and measured 500 reeds with the measuring reed.

20He measured it on the four sides. It had a wall around it, the length 500, and the breadth 500,b to make a separation between what was holy and what was common.

The LXX reads “south”
About 875 feet; 266 meters
