וְאִֽם־נִכְלְמ֞וּ מִכֹּ֣ל אֲשֶׁר־עָשׂ֗וּ צוּרַ֣ת הַבַּ֡יִת וּתְכוּנָת֡וֹ וּמוֹצָאָ֡יו וּמוֹבָאָ֣יו וְֽכׇל־צוּרֹתָ֡ו וְאֵ֣ת כׇּל־חֻקֹּתָיו֩ וְכׇל־צ֨וּרֹתָ֤ו וְכׇל־תּֽוֹרֹתָו֙ הוֹדַ֣ע אוֹתָ֔ם וּכְתֹ֖ב לְעֵינֵיהֶ֑ם וְיִשְׁמְר֞וּ אֶת־כׇּל־צוּרָת֛וֹ וְאֶת־כׇּל־חֻקֹּתָ֖יו וְעָשׂ֥וּ אוֹתָֽם׃
(יחזקאל מג יא)

If they were confused about all that they have done, namely the arrangement of the house and its organization and its exits and its entrances and all its arrangements. And make known to them all its statutes and all its arrangements and all its laws. And write before their eyes so they observe all of its arrangement and all its statutes and (then) do them.

The word צוּרָה occurs only four times in the Bible (all of which are contained in this verse). Should it be translated the same way each time?

    The Jewish tradition for צורת הבית is: the internal layout / arrangement of the house.
    Strong's lexicon says: form, fashion, design, which is practically like the tradition.

    Do you have a reason to doubt?
