After the man had finished measuring the buildings inside the temple area, he took me back through the east gate and measured the wall around this area. 16
He used his measuring stick to measure the east side of this wall; it was 250 meters long. 17-19
Then he measured the north side, the south side, and the west side of the wall, and they were each 250 meters long, 20
and so the temple area was a perfect square. The wall around this area separated what was sacred from what was ordinary. Lord
