22 in other words, the four corners of the court contained four small compounds, forty cubits by thirty, all four being the same size.
23 All four were enclosed by a wall, with hearths all round the bottom of the wall.
24 He said, 'These are the kitchens where the Temple servants must boil the sacrifices offered by the people.'
