EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Ezekiel 40:7,
were three on this side, and three on that side; three on the right side of the porch to the north, and three on the left side of it to the south:
they three were of one measure; one reed, or three yards and a half square, as in Ezekiel 40:7.
and the posts had one measure on this side and on that side; on the right and left, north and south of the inward gate of the porch, which measure was two cubits, Ezekiel 40:9.And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on this side, and three on that side; they three were of one measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on that side.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)10. The measurer, having passed through the whole length of the gateway E. to W., and named each particular thing on one side of it, viz. threshold (Ezekiel 40:6), guardroom (Ezekiel 40:7), wall space between guardrooms (Ezekiel 40:7), inner threshold to porch (Ezekiel 40:7), porch and its posts (Ezekiel 40:8-9), with their dimensions, now states that there were three guardrooms on each side, all of the same size, and also some other points. For little chambers, guardrooms.
the posts had one measure] Probably the “posts” here are not the jambs of the door of the porch (Ezekiel 40:9), but the wall-fronts or spaces between the guardrooms (Ezekiel 40:7), Fig, 1, gh, ik. There were two of these on each side of the passage, each measuring five cubits.Verse 10. - Having reached the furthest limit westward, the guide retraces his steps backward in an easterly direction, noting that on the side of the covered way opposite to that already examined the same arrangements existed as to "lodges" and "posts," the latter of which (אֵילִים) are here first mentioned in connection with the guardrooms, and must be understood as signifying pillars or jambs in front of the walls. Their measurements, which were equal, were probably as in ver. 9, two cubits square.
