He measured the thickness of the wall structure; it was about 10 feet, and its height was the same. Then he came to the gate that faced east and climbed its steps. He measured the threshold of the gate; it was 10 feet deep—the first threshold was 10 feet deep. Each recess was about 10 feet long and 10 feet deep, and there was a space of 8¾ feet between the recesses.
