      1  The measures, parts, chambers, and ornaments of the temple.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - he brought.
       * Eze 40:2,3,17
    - to the temple.
       * 1Ki 6:2 Zec 6:12,13 Eph 2:20-22 1Pe 2:5 Re 3:12; 11:1,2
       * 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.
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - 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
      porch.
    
       * 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
    
    
    VERSE 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.
    
       * :3
    
    
    VERSE 4 
     - twenty cubits.
       * 1Ki 6:20 2Ch 3:8 Re 21:16
    - This.
       * Ex 26:33,34 Heb 9:3-8
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - side chamber.
       * :6,7; 42:3-14 1Ki 6:5,6
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - one over another.  Heb. side chamber over side chamber.
      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
    - but.
      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
      beams.
    
    
    VERSE 7 
     - 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
      the top.
    
    
    VERSE 8 
     - a full.
       * Eze 40:5 Re 21:16
    
    
    VERSE 9 
     - was five.
       * :5
    - that which.
      This appears to have been a walk, or gallery of communication
      between the chambers, five cubits broad, into which the doors
      opened.
    
       * :11; 42:1,4
    
    
    VERSE 10 
     - 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
      cubits between.
    
       * :10
    
    
    VERSE 11 
     - and the breadth.
       * :9; 42:4
    
    
    VERSE 12 
     - separate.
       * :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.
    
    
    VERSE 13 
     - he measured.
      These verses (13-15) seem to intimate, that all the buildings
      of the temple occupied an area of 100 square cubits.
    
       * :13
    
    VERSE 14
    
    
    VERSE 15 
     - galleries.  or, several walks, or walks with pillars.
       * Eze 42:3 So 1:17; 7:5 Zec 3:7
    - with the.
       * :17; 42:15
    
    
    VERSE 16 
     - narrow.
       * :26; 40:16,25 1Ki 6:4 1Co 13:12
    - ceiled with wood.  Heb. ceiling of wood.
       * 1Ki 6:15 2Ch 3:5 Hag 1:4
    - from the ground up to the windows.  or, the ground  unto the
      windows.  covered.
      Probably either by jutting out of the main wall of the
      temple; or by lattice work, or curtains, or by both.
    
    
    VERSE 17 
     - 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 42:15
    
    
    VERSE 18 
     - with cherubims.
       * 1Ki 6:29-32; 7:36 2Ch 3:7
    - palm trees.
       * Eze 40:16,22 Re 7:9
    - and every.
       * Eze 1:10; 10:14,21 Re 4:7-9
    
    
    VERSE 19 
     - the face.
       * Eze 1:6,10; 10:14
    
    
    VERSE 20 
     - cherubims.
       * 2Ch 3:7
    
    
    VERSE 21 
     - posts.  Heb. post.
       * Eze 40:14 1Ki 6:33 *marg:
    
    
    VERSE 22 
     - altar.
      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.
    
       * Ex 30:1-3 1Ki 6:20,22; 7:48 2Ch 4:19 Re 8:3
    - This is.
       * Eze 23:41; 44:16 Ex 25:28-30 Le 24:6 Pr 9:2 So 1:12 Mal 1:7,12
       * 1Co 10:21 Re 3:20
    - before.
       * Ex 30:8
    
    VERSE 23
        * 1Ki 6:31-35 2Ch 4:22
    
    VERSE 24
        * Eze 40:48
    
    
    VERSE 25 
     - cherubims.  See on ver.
       * :16-20
    
    
    VERSE 26 
     - See on ver.
       * :16; 40:16
