Extracts and comments taken from Revelation Chp. 11 



And there was given me a (a)reed like to a (b)sceptre: the (c)angel said, "Rise, and measure the Temple of God, and the alter, and them that worship therein".


(a) “Reed;" the measuring "reed," = 6 cubits. The "full reed," = six "great" cubits. The great cubit is "one cubit + one hand breath." 6 hand breadths = one standard cubit, the great cubit = 7 handbreadths. The full reed on the basis of 6 x 7 x 3.575" = thereabouts 12.5' (or 12'6" approx.)
