EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)
40:1-49 The Vision of the Temple. - Here is a vision, beginning at ch. 40, and continued to the end of the book, ch. 48, which is justly looked upon to be one of the most difficult portions in all the book of God. When we despair to be satisfied as to any difficulty we meet with, let us bless God that our salvation does not depend upon it, but that things necessary are plain enough; and let us wait till God shall reveal even this unto us. This chapter describes two outward courts of the temple. Whether the personage here mentioned was the Son of God, or a created angel, is not clear. But Christ is both our Altar and our Sacrifice, to whom we must look with faith in all approaches to God; and he is Salvation in the midst of the earth, Ps 74:12, to be looked unto from all quarters.In front of each guard-chamber were columns, whose "posts" (bases) were each one cubit square.9. posts—projecting column-faced fronts of the sides of the doorway, opposite to one another. This is a repetition of what the 7th verse hath already acquainted us with; I only observe, these chambers were for the priests and Levites to lodge in during their ministration, according to their courses in the temple, where they kept watch continually night and day. The whole was framed in very great harmony and just proportions. And the little chambers of the gate eastward,.... Where the man now was, and was measuring; and the like chambers there were in the other gates, and of the same measure; of which chambers See Gill on 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.
