(11) The doors of the side chambers.--These doors opened upon the platform, that for the series on the north side to the north, and for the other to the south. There was but one door on each side, so that the series of chambers must have been entered one from another.

We may now sum up the measurements of the Temple with its chambers and surrounding space. The wall, 6 cubits; the chambers, 4; their outer wall, 5; the platform beyond, 5; the space beyond this, 20 (6 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 20 = 40). This was on each side, and therefore is to be doubled, making 80 cubits; to this add the 20 cubits of the inner width of the Temple, and we have exactly the 100 cubits, the width of the inner court. In the same way the length: here the porch is considered as belonging to the court, and with it the front wall of the Temple, the thickness of which is included in the length of the porch. Beginning then at the inside of the outer walls, we have the inner length of Temple, 60 cubits; rear wall, 6; chambers, 4; outer wall, 5; platform, 5; space, 20; in all, 100 cubits. thus making an exact square.

Verse 11. - The place that was left has been differently explained (see above on ver. 9); but on any hypothesis the side chambers opened on the free space towards the north and towards the south, g.s. one row of chambers was entered by a door from the south, another by a door from the north. The corridor into which the chambers opened - whether between them and the house (Ewald, Currey) or between them and an outside wall (Kliefoth, Hengstenberg, Keil) - was five cubits broad. Thus the whole breadth of the temple court can be obtained.

I. The breadth of the court -

1. Breadth of the house 20 cubits

2. Breadth of wall, 6 × 2 cubits = 12 cubits

3. Breadth of chambers, 4 × 2 cubits = 8 cubits

4. Breadth of chamber wall, 5 × 2 cubits = 10 cubits

5. Breadth of corridor, 5 × 2 cubits = 10 cubits

6. Breadth of free space, 20 × 2 cubits = 40 cubits

Total ? 100 cubits

II. The length of the court -

1. The length of the house ... 60 cubits

2. The temple wall 6 cubits

3. The chambers 4 cubits

4. The chamber wall 5 cubits

5. The corridor 5 cubits

6. The space towards the west 20 cubits

Total ... 100 cubits

The "house" was thus one hundred cubits square. The perch of the house was reckoned as belonging to the inner court (Ezekiel 40:48).

41:1-26 After the prophet had observed the courts, he was brought to the temple. If we attend to instructions in the plainer parts of religion, and profit by them, we shall be led further into an acquaintance with the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.
