Ezekiel 41:7 [study!]

American Standard Version (ASV 1901) [2]
— And the side-chambers were broader as they encompassed [the house] higher and higher; for the encompassing of the house went higher and higher round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house [continued] upward; and so one went up [from] the lowest [chamber] to the highest by the middle [chamber].
King James Version (KJV 1769)
— And [there was] an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house [was still] upward, and so increased [from] the lowest [chamber] to the highest by the midst.
New American Standard Bible (NASB ©1995)
— 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].
Webster's Revision of the KJB (WEB 1833)
— And [there was] an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side-chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward around the house; therefore the breadth of the house [was still] upward, and so increased [from] the lowest [chamber] to the highest by the midst.
Darby's Translation (DBY 1890)
— And for the side-chambers there was an enlarging, and it went round about [the house] increasing upward; for the surrounding of the house increased upward round about the house; therefore the house had width upward, and so ascended [from] the lower [story] to the upper, by the middle one.
Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR 1902)
— And there was a broadening and a winding about higher and higher to the side-chambers, for, the circuit of the house, was higher and higher round about on every side of the house, for this cause, was there a broadening of the house upwards,—and, from the lower, one ascended to the higher, by that which was in the middle.
Young's Literal Translation (YLT 1898)
— And a broad place and a turning place still upwards [are] to the side-chambers, for the turning round of the house [is] still upwards all round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house [is] upwards, and so the lower one goeth up unto the higher by the midst.
Douay-Rheims Challoner Revision (DR 1750)
— And there was a broad passage round about, going up by winding stairs, and it led into the upper loft of the temple all round: therefore was the temple broader in the higher parts: and so from the lower parts they went to the higher by the midst.
Original King James Bible (AV 1611) [2]
— And [there was] an enlarging and a winding about still vpward to the side-chambers, for the winding about of the house went still vpward round about the house: therefore the bredth of the house [was still] vpward, and so increased [from] the lowest [chamber] to the highest by the middest.
Brenton Greek Septuagint (LXX, Restored Names)
— And the breadth of the upper side [was made] according to the projection out of the wall, against the upper one round about the house, that it might be enlarged above, and that [men] might go up to the upper chambers from those below, and from the ground-sills to the third story.
Full Hebrew Names / Holy Name KJV (2008) [2] [3]
— And [there was] an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house [was still] upward, and so increased [from] the lowest [chamber] to the highest by the midst.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 41:7

_ _ the breadth ... so increased from the lowest ... to the highest — that is, the breadth of the interior space above was greater than that below.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 41:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 41:7

An enlarging — Of the side chambers, so much of breadth added to the chamber, as was taken from the thickness of the wall; that is, two cubits in the uppermost, and one cubit in the middle — most, more than in the lowest chambers. A winding about — Winding stairs, which enlarged as the rooms did, and these run up between each two chambers from the bottom to the top; so there were two doors at the head of each pair of stairs, one door opening into one chamber, and the other into the opposite chamber. For the winding about — These stairs, as they rose in height, enlarged themselves too. Round about — On all sides of the house where these chambers were. The breadth — Of each chamber. Increased — Grew broader by one cubit in every upper chamber. From five in the lowest to six in the middle, and to seven in the highest chamber.
