* Re 21:3,15
- the posts.
These were probably a sort of door-case on each side of the
entrance; and the tabernacle perhaps was a kind of covering
to the door, of the same dimensions.
- the door. or, the entrance.
This was the door out of the porch into the sanctuary, which
seems to have been wider than that from the court to the
* Ex 26:36; 36:37 1Ki 6:31-35 2Ch 3:7; 29:7 Joh 10:7,9
- the length.
* 1Ki 6:2,17 2Ch 3:3
- two cubits.
This was the thickness of the partition wall between the
sanctuary (ver. 2) and holy of holies (ver. 4); the breadth
of the wall on each side of the gate being seven cubits, and
the entrance into the holy place six cubits in width.
- twenty cubits.

thirty in order. or, three and thirty times, or feet.
We find by Josephus, that around Solomon's temple were
chambers three stories high, each story consisting of thirty
chambers; which are supposed to have been on the north,
south, and east sides of the temple.
- and they.
* 1Ki 6:6,10
- have held. Heb. be holden.
* 1Pe 1:5
That is, the beams or supporters, of the chambers were not
let into the main wall of the temple; but rested on
projections of the outer wall, which became a cubit narrower
at every story, leaving a ledge of one cubit, to support the
- there was. Heb. it was, made broader, and went round.
* 1Ki 6:8 Mt 13:32 Heb 6:1
- an enlarging.
In the same proportion in which the thickness of the wall
decreased, the chambers increased, so that the middle story
was one cubit larger, and the upper story two cubits larger,
than the lower rooms; and a winding staircase, which widened
in the same manner as the rooms, ascended from the bottom to
- a full.
* Eze 40:5 Re 21:16
- was five.
- that which.
This appears to have been a walk, or gallery of communication
between the chambers, five cubits broad, into which the doors
* :11; 42:1,4
- the chambers.
As the word rendered chambers is different from that used
before, it is supposed there was another row of buildings,
parallel with the side chambers, with a passage of twenty
- and the breadth.
* :9; 42:4
* :13-15; 42:1,10,13 Re 21:27; 22:14,15
- the wall.
This appears to have been a building erected at the west end
of the temple.
- he measured.
These verses (13-15) seem to intimate, that all the buildings
of the temple occupied an area of 100 square cubits.
- galleries. or, several walks, or walks with pillars.

- from the ground up to the windows. or, the ground unto the
Probably either by jutting out of the main wall of the
temple; or by lattice work, or curtains, or by both.
- To that.
That is, the windows were placed above the height of the
door, at the east end of the temple, and thus continued, at
the same height, and at measured distances, along both sides
of the holy place, to the wall of the inner sanctuary, in
which there were no windows.
- measure. Heb. measures.

* Eze 40:14 1Ki 6:33 *marg:
This must signify the altar of incense; which, both in the
tabernacle and Solomon's temple, was covered with plates of
gold. It is very remarkable, that in this temple described
by Ezekiel, there is not the least mention of gold or silver,
though there was such a profusion of these metals in the
former; which may probably imply, that a glory of a more
spiritual nature was intended under these emblems.
