Chapter Overview

A description of the chambers that were about the courts, verse 1-12.
The uses of them, verse 13-14.
The whole compass of ground, which was taken up by the house and courts, verse 15-20.

Verse 2
The length - The temple of one hundred cubits long, and of fifty broad, was on the south prospect of these chambers.

Verse 3
Against gallery - That is, a gallery on the south part toward the inner court, and a gallery toward the pavement north-ward, and between the backs of these galleries were chambers.

Verse 4
A way - Before the galleries probably, was a ledge of one cubit broad, running the whole length from east to west, called here a way, though not designed for any to walk on it.

Verse 5
Shorter - At first view it should seem to refer to the length, but indeed it refers to the height of the chambers, of which the lowest chamber was highest, the second lower pitched than the first, yet of greater height than the uppermost between the floor and ceiling.

Verse 6
As the pillars - So thick and strong as those were.

Verse 7
The wall - A wall at a distance from them, perhaps some wall that might keep up a terrace-walk.

Verse 11
The way - The walk. Was like - Exactly uniform with the fabrick on the north-side. All their goings - Every window and door. Were - Framed in the same manner. In all things exactly alike.

Verse 13
Shall they lay - In some of these chambers the holy things that might be eat, were laid up as in a store-house; and those which were not for present use, were reserved, 'till they were to be used.

Verse 14
Which are - Which common people may meddle with.

Verse 20
Five hundred broad - Each reed was above three yards and an half, so that it was about eight miles round. Thus large were the suburbs of this mystical temple, signifying the great extent of the church in gospel times. It is in part fulfilled already, by the accession of the Gentiles to the church: and will be throughly accomplished, when the fulness of the Gentiles shall come in, and all Israel shall be saved. A separation - To distinguish, and accordingly to exclude, or admit persons, for all might not go in.
