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.The gates both of the outer and of the inner court. Compare Plan II.23. and toward the east—an elliptical expression for "The gate of the inner court was over against the (outer) gate toward the north (just as the inner gate was over against the outer gate) toward the east." Seven steps: see Ezekiel 40:22.

To go up to it; the floor or square court.

Before them: see Ezekiel 40:22. One on this side, and another on that side; on the right and on the left-hand posts, each post had one palm tree. And there were seven steps to go up to it,.... To the south gate, as there were to the east and north gates, Ezekiel 40:6,

and the arches thereof were before them; See Gill on Ezekiel 40:22,

and it had palm trees, one on this side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof; that is, on the posts of this gate were palm trees, two on each post, one on one side, and the other on the other: this verse shows us how many palm trees were painted on the posts, and how they were disposed of; See Gill on Ezekiel 40:16.

And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches thereof were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof.
