Book of Ezekiel
Introduction to Ezekiel Chapter 40.
This and the eight following chapters hold a vision of a city and Temple described by Ezekiel, and thought by many to be the most difficult part of the entire Bible. The Jews forbid the reading of it until a man is 30 years old, and then he must expect to find things he does not understand. Some Christian commentators have omitted explaining these chapters; and all admit the difficulties.
We have a very detailed description of a magnificent physical Temple, somewhat loosely patterned after the Temple of Solomon, only much larger, complete with living quarters for priests, and a complicated system of animal sacrifices and other material offerings. All nine of Chapters 40-48 speak of almost nothing else except the Exceptional New Temple in Jerusalem which GOD promised would be built after Israel's return to Palestine and the salvation of Israel.
The whole system of worship which Ezekiel foresaw, shows no harmony whatsoever with Christianity.
(1). The very idea of a physical Temple is offensive to Christianity. The most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands (Acts 7:48). There will not be even a Temple in Heaven (Rev.21:22-23).
(2). Animal sacrifices and other sacrifices for sins are a total contradiction of the Holy Truth that, the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin (1 Jn.1:7). It is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins (Heb.10:4).
(3). The special chambers for priests get much attention in this section; but such physical quarters for a separate priesthood have no importance whatsoever to Christianity. All Christians are priests unto God (Rev.1:6), and a royal priesthood (1 Pet.2:9) too.
(4). Ezekiel's Temple is the one in which Almighty GOD shall dwell forever (Eze.43:7). For believers GOD'S SPIRIT entered the Holy Temple of His Church (Jn.14:16-17; Acts 2; 1 Cor.3:16; Rom.8:9).
(5). Observance of New Moons and Sabbaths appear in this section as forms of worship; but CHRIST JESUS Himself took the ordinances out of the way, nailing them to His cross (Col.2:14). In the same passage, the apostle Paul warned Christians against the observance either of new moons or Sabbath (Col.2:16).
(6). In the situation presented here in Ezekiel, all worship is centered in Jerusalem. As far as Christianity is concerned, this is wrong. CHRIST JESUS enlightened the Samaritan woman with the truth: John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (KJV)
When we consider this, it appears that little, if any, of these last nine Chapters has much we can apply to us as Christians. This section applies to ISRAEL, not the Gospel Church! There are three groups of people in the eyes of GOD. 1 Cor. 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: (KJV) The church did NOT replace Israel! http://www.worldlychaos.org/w_c_what_is_replacement_theology.htm
The literal dimensions given here are not realistic. The square of the Temple given in Ezekiel 42:20 is six times as large as the wall encircling the old Temple. The city of Jerusalem, here has an area between three and four thousand square miles (about ten times the square miles Houston city limits). This is about as large as all of Judea west of the Jordan River.
This vision, beginning in Chapter 40 and continued to the end of the book, Chapter 48, is rightly looked upon to be one of the most difficult portions in all the entire Bible. This Chapter describes two outward courts of the Temple. Whether the Person mentioned here was the Son of GOD, or a created angel, is not clear. I personally think it is the Lord JESUS CHRIST! But dear one, CHRIST JESUS is both our Altar and our Sacrifice, to whom we must look with steadfast faith in all our approaches to GOD the FATHER, for He is the only Salvation in the midst of the Earth (Ps.74:12).
Chapters 40-42 describe the Millennial Temple. The Temple will be here on this Earth, but TRUE Christians are going to the place called New Jerusalem (Rev.21). The apostle John tells us: Revelation 21:22-23 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. (KJV)
The church is going to be in a place where there will be NO literal Temple; we will not need one, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it, but Israel on the Earth will have a Temple for at least the time of the Millennium.
Theme: Description of the Millennial Temple, worship in the Millennial Temple; Return of the glory of the LORD.
In this ending section of the Book of Ezekiel we find a description of the Millennial Temple, the worship in the Millennial Temple, and a vision concerning the land.
The Millennial Temple (40:1-47)
Ezekiel 40:1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither.
In the five and twentieth year of our captivity . . . 25 years from Jeconiah's captivity, is from where the prophet begins his dates: he calls it our captivity, because he himself was then carried captive; and this was 20 years after his first vision (1:1).
In the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month . . . In the beginning of the year; in the month Nisan, the tenth day; the day that the paschal lamb was to be taken up in order to the feast on the tenth day, on which Israel went out of Egypt.
In the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten . . . it seems the city was smitten in the eleventh year of Jeconiah's captivity (1:2), or eleventh year of Zedekiah's reign, and if you add 14, they add up to 25. Was smitten, taken, plundered and spoiled by Nebuchadnezzar.
In the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither . . . on the tenth day of the month, the hand of the LORD; the Spirit of prophecy (1:3; 3;14; 8:1). Brought me; not physically but in a vision, which showed to the prophet what he relays to us. Thither, to Jerusalem, the place where this took place, as appears in the next verse. The Spirit of the Lord, is sometimes called the finger of God: (Ex.8:19; 31:18; Deut.9:10; Lk.11:20)
Ezekiel 40:2 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south. (KJV)
In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel . . . or by the spirit of prophecy, meaning he was under the power of the SPIRIT of GOD, and it seemed to him, as if he was really brought out of Chaldea, and set in the land of Israel (3:4; 8:3; 11:1, 24), just as the apostle John was carried away in the spirit to see the New Jerusalem (Rev.21:10). Visions of God are divinely sent visions.
And set me upon a very high mountain . . . very high mountain, Mount Moriah is very high, when compared with the plains of Babylon, still more so as to its moral elevation (20:40).
By which was as the flame of a city on the south . . . Ezekiel coming from the north is set down at Mount Moriah, and sees a city-like frame of the Temple stretching southward. GOD brings him thither, meaning close up to it, so he could inspect it carefully (compare Rev.21:10). In this closing vision, as in the opening one of the book, the divine Hand of GOD is laid on the prophet, and he is borne away in the visions GOD gives him.
Ezekiel 40:3 And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate. (KJV)
And he brought me thither . . . thither (40:1), being brought into the land of Israel in vision, and to a high mountain in it, by which he sees as it were, the frame of a city; he was from there brought to the city or Temple itself, which looked like one.
And, behold, there was a man . . . behold, is a statement of attention and admiration; there was a man, the same, no doubt, which appeared to the prophet before (1:26-28), whose name is The Branch (Isa.11:1), and Who builds the Temple (Zec.6:12-13)
Whose appearance was like the appearance of brass . . . meaning the glory and splendor of this awesome Person, being the brightness of His Father's glory (1:27-28; 10:4); also the glory of His human nature, in His state of exaltation (Mat.17:2; 28:3; Lk.9:29; Rev.1:14-16), and especially the glory and brightness He will appear in when this vision will take place, with which He shall enlighten the whole Earth, and slay the Antichrist (Rev.18:1). I believe that His appearance also means His tremendous purity and holiness in both His natures, divine and human.
With a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed . . . a line of flax in his hand, CHRIST’S measuring line is the Holy Scripture and the preaching of the Word; so also is His measuring rod here said to be of reed (Rev. 11:1). Both these are in CHRIST’S Hand, to show that the power and efficacy of the Word read or preached is from Him alone (1 Cor.3:9-18; 2 Cor.10:13-17).
And he stood in the gate . . . of the house or Temple, as being LORD and Proprietor of it; having the keys of it, to open and shut, let in and keep out, at His pleasure (Heb.3:6), and as the Guide of the prophet, to lead him into each of the courts and apartments, and give him the dimensions of them, that he might show them to the house of Israel. He stands, invites and calls persons to come into His House, and partake of all the privileges of it (Pro.1:20). Dear one, CHRIST stands here, not so much the Doorkeeper, but instead, the Door itself (Jn.10:1-7).
He is the way to His Father, the gate that leads to eternal life, to the Jews (Israel) AND to the Gospel church (gentiles). John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) . . . Only ONE Way to Heaven, JESUS, for both Israel and the Gospel church!
Ezekiel 40:4 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel. (KJV)
And the man said unto me, Son of man . . . Son of man, a most kind form of address, showing CHRIST’S love to mankind. He called us sons of men (Mk.3:28), Who for our sakes became the Son of man (Lk.9:22, 26; 18:31; 19:10; Jn.6:53; 6:62; 8:28) that we might become the sons of God. This glorious and unique Person before described, appeared in a human form, spoke to the prophet and called him Son of man, a title given to Ezekiel 94 times in the Book of Ezekiel.
Behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears . . . the LORD told Ezekiel to look with both eyes wide open and listen carefully, which means to look and hear paying close attention; for if persons only glance at some thing or listen in a careless way, what they see and hear will make little impression upon them; and soon they forget it, and are not capable of telling it to others.
And set thy heart upon all that I shall show thee . . . pay attention to all that I shall show you, carefully consider it and ponder it in your heart. Let it possess all your thoughts so it will be engraved upon your mind, so that you remember what you see.
For to the intent that I might show them unto thee art thou brought hither . . . this was the reason why the prophet was brought in a vision, out of Chaldea into the land of Israel, so that he might see what is afterward described, and it was highly proper that he should carefully and persistently see it, and listen attentively to everything that was said to him about it, because he was to tell the whole of it to others, as follows:
Declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel . . . tell all that you see and hear to the people of Israel, then in captivity; that the people of GOD in all following times might know what will be the state and condition of the people of GOD in the latter days; and how far they have come short of Gospel order and discipline (43:10).
*****Moses had the pattern of the tabernacle shown to him in the mount (Ex.25:9; and David had the pattern of the Temple given to him by the Spirit (1 Ki. Ch.6) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . http://www.askelm.com/temple/t031102.htm
Ezekiel 40:5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and an hand breadth: so he measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and the height, one reed. (KJV)
And behold, a wall on the outside of the house round about . . . the first thing that the prophet sees, is a wall around this strange and wondrous building; which was like the frame of a city, as before observed (40:2): this wall was 500 reeds long, and 500 reeds broad (42:20). This wall was for separation and protection; that it was for separation is certain from (42:20). It was to separate the sanctuary land from the profane place; meaning to separate the church from the world. The people of GOD were always a distinct and separate people; they were so from eternity, are so today and will be so for all eternity. The Jews were distinguished from others by the everlasting love of GOD; by His choosing them (Deut.4:37; 7:7-8; 10:15; Num.14:8; Rom.9:13-23), and taking them into the covenant of His grace, as a result of it. A wall encompassed the whole ground on which the
Temple and the courts that belonged to the Temple stood. On the outside this clearly tells where the wall was,
of the house, House of GOD, the Temple (10:4; 2 Chron.2:1, 5).
And in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit, and an hand breadth . . . (40:3), this being the measure used in taking the dimensions of the whole building, it was right that it should be explained.
The cubit is a cubit and a hand's breadth, measures were mostly taken from the human body. The greater cubit is the length from the elbow to the end of the middle finger, a little more than two feet: which exceeds the ordinary cubit (from the elbow to the wrist) by a hand-breadth, is twenty-one inches in all.
So he measured the breadth of the building one reed, and the height, one reed . . . not of the whole building of the House or Temple, but of the wall before mentioned; the breadth or thickness of which was one reed, or three yards and a half; and the height of it was the same; meaning great security, protection and strong defense of the Temple of GOD.
Ezekiel 40:6 Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and went up the stairs thereof, and measured the threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad; and the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad. (KJV)
Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east . . . then, when Ezekiel had carefully looked at the outer wall and the measuring of it, came he, the man with the measuring reed (CHRIST). The gate which looketh toward the east, of one of the inner walls or of the Temple itself.
And went up the stairs thereof . . . the 7 steps unto it (49:22), Some of the Jewish writers think this is to be understood of the height of the court of Israel above this court; as if it was said, from this court they went up seven steps to the court of Israel. Went up the stairs thereof . . . until he was got to the top, he could not measure the threshold, for it was laid at the top of the stairs. Each step was half a cubit in height, too high at lowest for him to measure of the threshold, if he did not go up the stairs.
And measured the threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad . . . of the same measure. Threshold in Hebrew indicates both a threshold and the upper lintel; mention is made of a third threshold (40:7). It is a foolish to think that these three thresholds belong to one gate. Measured the threshold; it seems he measured the lower threshold first.
And the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad . . . the other threshold (40:7) is the upper threshold, or beam of the gate, which was the same size as the lower one, a reed broad, or three yards and three inches broad, or thick.
Ezekiel 40:7 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad; and between the little chambers were five cubits; and the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within was one reed. (KJV)
And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad . . . along the wall of the porch were chambers, three on one side and three on the other (40:10), of equal size, each one reed square. I have come up, with several interpretations of the reed: (1). a reed was about 3 ½ yards. (2). one reed was six cubits long by the cubit and an hand breadth. Since a cubit is roughly 18 inches, a cubit and a hand breadth would be 22 inches. Six of such cubits would make the reed exactly 11 feet long. (3). the length of the reed is given as 6 cubits, each cubit being a cubit and a palm, i.e. the large cubit of 7 palms, or about 10 ft. (4). A rod or reed was about 10 feet. . . . So it seems a reed was about 10 or 11 feet long. See Special Comments at the end of this Chapter for measurements.
And between the little chambers were five cubits . . . five cubits, or a space of 2 ½ yards between each chamber, either filled with posts or pillars, or it may be void, and nothing in them. Chamber, these chambers were for the use of the Levites who watched at the Temple gates; guard-chambers (2 Ki.22:4; 1 Chron. 9:26-27); also used for storing utensils and musical instruments. The length and breadth were equal, three yards and a half long and broad; a perfect square.
And the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within was one reed . . . or three yards and a half; this gate within was that which lay westward, and was nearer the Temple; between which and the outer gate before mentioned was a porch, on both sides of which were little chambers; and the threshold or thresholds (one being put for both) were of the same dimensions with those of the thresholds of the other; and so point to the same things.
Ezekiel 40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed. (KJV)
He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed . . . this was either the measure of the width of the porch between the opposite chambers on both sides. The porch, the posts, which were joined together at the top by an arch, and so made the porch.
Ezekiel 40:9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the posts thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was inward. (KJV)
Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits . . . say some, this was another porch of another gate, different from that in verse 40:6, while others refer this measuring to the same gate, but where, as before the width, now the length is measured.
And the posts thereof two cubits . . . these were columns or pillars placed on each side of the porch, or at the portal of the gate, of two cubits, or a yard and half a foot thick; which, added to the other eight cubits, made the entrance ten cubits, as in verse 40:11.
And the porch of the gate was inward . . . this was the porch of the inward gate.
Ezekiel 40:10 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. (KJV)
And the little chambers of the gate eastward . . . (40:7), where the man now was, and was measuring; and the like chambers there were in the other gates, and of the same measure.
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 (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 (40:9).
*****This repeats what the 7th verse hath already said. It seems these chambers (rooms) 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 of this was framed in great harmony and just proportions.
Ezekiel 40:11 And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten cubits; and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits. (KJV)
And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten cubits . . . the breadth of the entry is meant of the whole length of the entry, or walk through the porch, which was five yards, two feet and a half wide. This was the measure of the eastern gate, whether outward or inward; for they were both measured the same, as appears from the thresholds being alike; and to which they ascended by stairs of a semi-circular form.
And the length of the gate, thirteen cubits . . . meaning the height of it; it was seven yards and three inches high; an extraordinary gate . . . which is a fit symbol of our Lord JESUS CHRIST, as the open Door, the gate of life, through which whosoever enters shall be saved (Jn.10:1-9), and there is room for vast multitudes to enter.
Ezekiel 40:12 The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on this side, and the space was one cubit on that side: and the little chambers were six cubits on this side, and six cubits on that side. (KJV)
The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on this side . . . the space, the limit, or rails, as some think, which were set up at a cubit away from the front of these little chambers (40:7), and gave a beauty to them; or possibly the space of a cubit on the outside to place benches for the priests to sit on, while they observed who came in and out of the gate.
And the space was one cubit on that side . . . a space or border of the same size was to the front of the three little chambers on the south side of the porch, which they may use without any loss of piety towards GOD, or of love one to another.
And the little chambers were six cubits on this side, and six cubits on that side; they were of the same size, those on one side, as those of the other, and were six cubits square; or one reed, which is the same (40:7).
Ezekiel 40:13 He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber to the roof of another: the breadth was five and twenty cubits, door against door. (KJV)
He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber to the roof of another . . . meaning the whole porch, from the highest part of the roof of one of the little chambers on the north side, to the highest part of the roof of another of the little chambers on the south; of the roof of these chambers (40:7).
The breadth was five and twenty cubits . . . the width was six cubits to one chamber on one side, and six cubits to one chamber on the other side, which make twelve; and a cubit and a half to each back wall of the chambers on the north and south; or two cubits to the spaces before the chambers, and a cubit and a half to each of the caves of the chambers, which either way make fifteen cubits; and ten cubits the breadth of the gate; in all five and twenty cubits; or fourteen yards and three inches:
Door against door . . . not the door of the outward gate against the door of the inward gate; nor the door of one of the little chambers at the east, to the door of another at the west, running lengthways, and so affording a sight quite through the temple; but the door of one of them on the north side over against the door of another on the south, they answering exactly to each other (40:7).
*****The twenty five cubits is possibly represented by adding the six cubits of two opposite side rooms, to the thirteen cubits which is the width of the gate of the inner corridor. Door to door might suggest a back door in the wall of each guard room leading into the outer court, so that the rooms could be entered or left by means of the outer court without using the main gateway.
Ezekiel 40:14 He made also posts of threescore cubits, even unto the post of the court round about the gate. (KJV)
He made also posts of threescore cubits . . . He made also the posts, He that now measured them was the same ONE that made them; for CHRIST is the Builder as well as the Measurer of this structure. By measuring, He is pointing out the size and quantity of them.
Even unto the post of the court round about the gate . . . meaning that every post or pillar in every court, at every gate round about; at the southern and northern gates, as at this eastern one; were all exactly of the same size as the posts in this.
Ezekiel 40:15 And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of the porch of the inner gate were fifty cubits. (KJV)
And from the face of the gate of the entrance . . . meaning, from the outward gate as you went into the porch, and was to the east, so called from people's going in and out of it; some take it to be eastern gate; the Targum calls it the middle gate.
Unto the face of the porch of the inner gate . . . which opened at the other end of the porch, into the outward court, and was to the west.
Were fifty cubits . . . as he measured the breadth of the porch before (40:13), here the length; there were three chambers six cubits long, which made eighteen; and between each chamber were five cubits, which were ten cubits; and the space between the chambers and the gates at each end were six cubits each (40:8), which make twelve more; and then allow ten cubits for the thickness of both walls of each gate, and there will be fifty cubits, or twenty nine yards and half a foot.
*****This verse seems to sum up all the dimensions, this gate, its porch, and thickness of its walls; and so sum up the cubits, six in the thickness of the outer wall, eighteen in the three chambers, twenty in the spaces between the chambers, and six cubits in the thickness of the inner wall of the porch.
Ezekiel 40:16 And there were narrow windows to the little chambers, and to their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the arches: and windows were round about inward: and upon each post were palm trees. (KJV)
And there were narrow windows to the little chamber . . . narrow windows, these windows were in the thickness of the wall of the chambers, and the wall was sloped inside toward the chamber, and outside sloped toward the outside which gathered the light, dispersing it over in the chamber. The little chambers (40:10), three on each side of the porch.
And to their posts within the gate round about . . . meaning the upper lintel of each door to all the chambers, over which was a window to let in light from that side.
And likewise to the arches . . . windows under the arches between the posts, to give light to the five cubits’ space between the chambers.
And the windows were round about inward . . . in all the chambers that were in the grand porch, on the north and the south. All these windows that were on both sides of the porch were the same.
And upon each post were palm trees . . . meaning that on every post, column or pillar that had its place in the chambers; and most likely on all the others before mentioned (40:9), were engraved with palm trees for beauty, and whose upper branches spreading themselves along under the arches seemed to bear up the arches. The palm tree grows best in sunny places, is fruitful, is an ever green, and is long lasting long. Such are the people of GOD (Ps.92:12), they grow best in the warmth of His love and rays of the Sun of righteousness (Mal.4:2). In the latter days, Israel shall believe GOD (1 Jn.5:10-12) and accept His only Begotten Son (Jn.3:16); and be hungry to hear the Gospel of CHRIST. They shall be fruitful in grace and good works, and never perish (Jn.10:28). The palm tree is a symbol of joy and victory (Lev.23:40), and means the victory and joy, which GOD’S people shall have through Christ, over sin, Satan, the world and eternal death.
*****The ordinances of the Kingdom dispensation shall without a doubt be clearer, and the light of it greater, than that of the legal dispensation, but this light has been greatly darkened by the Roman church and although that darkness increased at the Reformation, yet before the latter days, its glory shall break forth, and it will be as a twilight, neither clear nor dark, day nor night (Zec.14:6), and though the light that then will break out will be exceeding great, as the light of the sun, and that as the light of seven days (Isa.30:26), and the Lord JESUS will be the Everlasting Light of His people. Amen.
Ezekiel 40:17 Then brought he me into the outward court, and, lo, there were chambers, and a pavement made for the court round about: thirty chambers were upon the pavement. (KJV)
Then brought he me into the outward court . . . into the outward court, in this Temple were more courts and more chambers than were ever in Solomon’s Temple. The outward court, so called in respect to the more inward court, between where he was and the Temple itself was.
And, lo, there were chambers . . . there were chambers, not only lodging rooms for the priests, but also storehouses for tithes and offerings.
And a pavement made for the court round about . . . this court went around the whole building, so there was a pavement upon it. And a pavement made, more costly and stately than that of Ahasuerus (Est.1:6). GOD’S people are said to be living stones (1 Pet.2:5), more precious than sapphires (Isa.54:11), firm as a pavement by faith, and low by humility; submitting to their teachers (Heb.13:17), and obeying from the heart the form of doctrine delivered unto them (Rom.6:17).
Thirty chambers were upon a pavement . . . according to some, fifteen on each side of the eastern gate, as you came out of it into the court; these were all around the court, eight to the east, eight to the north, eight to the south, and six to the west, as one states; or, as another says: seven to the east and seven to the west, and eight to the north and eight to the south. This suggests that there will be visible congregated Israelites in the latter day from all parts of the world, east, west, north, and south (Isa.43:5-9).
Ezekiel 40:18 And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the length of the gates was the lower pavement. (KJV)
And the pavement by the sides of the gates . . . the pavement (40:17).
By the side of the gates . . . the pavement which lay on each side of the gate, and from there spread towards the chambers, leaving a space of pavement of equal breadth with the porch, or gate in the middle.
Over against the length of the gates was the lower pavement . . . the length of the gates was measured fifty cubits (40:15), from the outside of the first wall to the outside of the inmost wall of the gate and porch, from which, on a pavement somewhat raised, this went on to the next gate of the next court. The lower pavement or the side pavement was laid somewhat lower than this middle pavement, to be easier to keep clean. So the middle pavement rose with a convex surface, edges curved downward like the outside of a circle.
Ezekiel 40:19 Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower gate unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred cubits eastward and northward. (KJV)
Then he measured the breadth from the fore front of the lower gate . . . meaning from the front of the inner eastern gate before mentioned (40:7), also called the lower gate, in respect of the gate opposite to it, which led into the inner court, to which there was an climb of eight steps; and which the Targum calls the middle gate, because it lay between the eastern outward gate, and the gate of the inward court. He measured the whole ground between the inner front of one gate and porch, to the outer front of the next gate more inward to the Temple.
Unto the fore front of the inner court without, an hundred cubits . . . unto the forefront, to the outside front of the gate of the priests’ court, which was next to this gate now measured; meaning from the west front of the lower gate to the east front of the upper gate; this court was one hundred cubits in length, from the west front of the lower gate to the east front of the gate of the inner court; and so was the space from the south front of the court to the north front . . . so the court was precisely square.
Eastward and northward . . . as it was from east to west, so it was from north to south; it was the same distance from the gate that led into the outward court to that which led into the inward court, on all sides (40:23).
Ezekiel 40:20 And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the north, he measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof. (KJV)
And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the north . . . the north gate of this building: having finished the dimensions of the eastern gate (40:10), those of the north gate are taken.
he measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof . . . as the Man had measured the eastern gate, which was the same; and so of the south gate (40:24), which means the uniformity in the latter days, in the way of doctrine, discipline, worship and ordinances.
*****The Measurer gives account of the north gate of this outward court, in which is in exact harmony with the measures, fashion, and ornaments of the east gate, so that nothing needs be repeated.
Ezekiel 40:21 And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and three on that side; and the posts thereof and the arches thereof were after the measure of the first gate: the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits. (KJV)
And the little chambers thereof were three on this side, and three on that side . . . as there were in the eastern gate, called the first gate (40:22), and the measures were the same (40:7). Israel and all churches in the Millennial Kingdom will all be on the same plan and modelled according to the same pattern by the King.
And the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, were after the same measure of the first gate . . . the first gate is the eastern gate (40:10), all the pillars and posts of all gates will be the same, all uniform.
The length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits . . . (40:13), the length thereof was fifty cubits (40:15), and the breadth five and twenty cubits (40:13). Perfect harmony!
Ezekiel 40:22 And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees, were after the measure of the gate that looketh toward the east; and they went up unto it by seven steps; and the arches thereof were before them. (KJV)
And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees, were after the measure of the gate that looked towards the east . . . (40:14, 16), indicating that the light to Israel and the churches, their privileges, and flourishing condition, will be the same everywhere . . . as it is in one place, so it will be in another (Isa.52:8-10).
And they went up unto it by seven steps . . . steps or stairs (40:6), the number of them is not mentioned there as it is here, but it shall be seven steps in both.
And the arches thereof were before them . . . the steps led to the arches of the gate, or to the porch of it, which were more inward.
*****Its windows, porches and its palm tree ornaments had the same measurements as the gate which faced toward the east; and it was reached by seven steps, and its porch was in front of them.
Ezekiel 40:23 And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate toward the north, and toward the east; and he measured from gate to gate an hundred cubits. (KJV)
And the gate of the inward court was over against the gate toward the north, and toward the east . . . across the courtyard from the north gate was another gate leading to the inner courtyard, just as there was on the east side.
And toward the east . . . the east gate of the inner court was directly across from the east gate of the outer court, with equal distant from each other.
And he measured from gate to gate an hundred cubits . . . from the north gate of the outward court to the north gate of the inward court; and it was exactly the same distance from one another as on the left side (40:19).
Ezekiel 40:24 After that he brought me toward the south, and behold a gate toward the south: and he measured the posts thereof and the arches thereof according to these measures. (KJV)
After that he brought me toward the south . . . having taken the dimensions of the east and north gates, the prophet was had on the south side of the building.
And behold a gate toward the south . . . that led to the southern part of this Temple and to the outward court there, exactly like the other two; there was no difference in them, which raised the prophet's curiosity and attention; for there was no outward court in the Second Temple, except to the east of the inward; and it did not go around to the other sides.
And he measured the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, according, to these measures . . . the measurements of the east and north gates were the same; for these all indicated just one gate or door into the building. Having finished measuring the east gate, and showed the prophet the sameness of the north gate’s buildings, measures, and ornaments, now he is shown the south gate, with its exact proportions as the other two (40:5-11). The posts and the arches (40:16, 21-22).
Ezekiel 40:25 And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about, like those windows: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits. (KJV)
And there were windows in it, and in the arches thereof round about . . . (40:16), windows in the little chambers, and in the porches of them on each side, as you passed from the outer to the inner gate:
Like those windows . . . that were in the chambers that were in the east and north gates (40:7).
The length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits (40:13).
Ezekiel 40:26 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. (KJV)
And there were seven steps to go up to it . . . seven steps (40:22), to go up to it . . . to the floor or square court.
And the arches thereof were before them . . . (40:22),
And it had palm trees, one on this side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof . . . meaning on the posts of this gate were engraved palm trees (40:16), two on each post, one on one side, and another on the other side.
Ezekiel 40:27 And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south: and he measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred cubits. (KJV)
And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south . . . which answered to the gate of the outward court before mentioned.
And he measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred cubits . . . from the gate of the inward court, to the gate of the outward court southward, were the same proportions as in the east and north gates (40:19).
Ezekiel 40:28 And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate: and he measured the south gate according to these measures; (KJV)
And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate . . . being done with the outer court, east, north and south, the prophet is brought into the inner court by the south gate, which was nearest to enter by. No mention is made of a western gate, although there was one in Solomon's temple (1 Chron.9:24); for there were porters appointed westward by David, and fixed by Solomon. But Josephus says, in the second Temple the western part had no gate, but a continued wall.
And he measured the south gate according to these measures . . . the gate which led into the inner court; for the south gate, which led to the outward court, he had measured before (40:21).
Ezekiel 40:29 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, according to these measures: and there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad. (KJV)
And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, according to these measures . . . these chambers were at the gate of the inner court; and were of the same size as the little chambers, posts, and arches, that were at the several outward gates before described.
And there were windows in it, and in the arches thereof round about . . . these are not said to be narrow, as the other; which may mean greater and more increasing light for the ministers and members.
It was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad . . . meaning the space or porch where these chambers were; and this was the same measure with that where the other chambers were (40:13); fifty cubits long (40:15) and five and twenty cubits broad (40:13).
Ezekiel 40:30 And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long, and five cubits broad. (KJV)
And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long . . . five and twenty cubits long . . . here, as before (40:11), length is put for height.
And five cubits broad . . . about 2 ½ yards, one foot and three inches; and which most likely were the breadth of the steps that came up to them. None of these arches were in the second Temple, some say.
Ezekiel 40:31 And the arches thereof were toward the utter court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had eight steps. (KJV)
And the arches thereof were toward the outward court . . . (40:14) and so not within the gate of the inward court, but on the outside of it, towards the outward court, at the front of the gate as you went in. Outward court is translated utter court (40:37; 42:1, 7, 14; 44:19; 46:20-21).
And palm trees were upon the posts thereof . . . (40:16), posts of the gate, or of these arches or porches, indicating that none should enter here but righteous persons (Ps.118:19).
And the going up to it had eight steps . . . (40:34, 37), one more step than the ascent to the outward gates; some say it is eight more, and make these to be fifteen, answerable to the fifteen steps by which the Levites went up from the court of the women to the court of Israel, and sung upon them the fifteen songs of degrees, mentioned in the Psalms. But here are only eight steps; which most likely mean the gradual progress of believers in faith and holiness; and that the nearer they come to the Holy of Holies, the greater their skill would be, with more knowledge of divine things.
Songs of degrees, Psalms.120-134: . . . . . . . . . . http://christadelphianbooks.org/booker/psalms5/psabke14.html
Ezekiel 40:32 And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he measured the gate according to these measures. (KJV)
And he brought me into the inner court toward the east . . . into that part of it which lay to the east, having gone through that which lay to the south.
And he measured the gate according to these measures . . . meaning the eastern gate of the inner court; for the eastern gate that led to the outward court he measured first (40:6), and the measure was the same as the rest.
Ezekiel 40:33 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, were according to these measures: and there were windows therein and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad. (KJV)
And the little chambers thereof . . . these, and all that follow in this verse, are exactly the same with those of the south gate of the inner court (40:29).
Ezekiel 40:34 And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps. (KJV)
And the arches thereof were toward the outward court . . . as those of the south gate, (40:31), and the palm trees on the posts, and the steps up to it, the same as there.
Ezekiel 40:35 And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according to these measures; (KJV)
And measured it according to these measures . . . it seems that whatever the measurements are in one gate, the same is the same with all the rest.
Ezekiel 40:36 The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits. (KJV)
The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof . . . the chambers with its guardrooms, its side pillars and its porches. And the gate had windows all around; the length was fifty cubits and the width twenty-five cubits.
Ezekiel 40:37 And the posts thereof were toward the utter court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps. (KJV)
*****Its side pillars were toward the outer court; and palm tree ornaments were on its side pillars on each side, and its stairway had eight steps. Postsin some versionsread, the porch, which better agrees to (40:31-34).
Ezekiel 40:38 And the chambers and the entries thereof were by the posts of the gates, where they washed the burnt offering. (KJV)
And the chambers, and the entries thereof, were by the posts of the gates . . . of the north gate; the plural for the singular; for not at the other gates, only at the north gate, were the sacrifices slain and washed; as under the law, only on the north side of the altar (Lev.1:11), now, by the posts of this gate, or at the entrance of it on one side.
Where they washed the burnt offering . . . its legs and inwards (Lev.1:9), according to the law, there were lavers in Solomon's Temple, to wash the sacrifices in (2 Chron.4:6), but there was no such cell or chamber there for such a purpose as here: and as this refers to Millennial times, and to Israel in the latter day. No legal sacrifice can be intended here, for are all abolished; but this must be mystically and spiritually understood, and designs no other than the Sacrifice of CHRIST, a sweet smelling savor to GOD. That this kind of offering was typical of the Sacrifice of Christ is clear from Hebrews 13:11, which whether of the herd, a bullock, represented CHRIST in His strength and difficulty; or of the flock, and was either a sheep, a symbol of the innocence and patience of CHRIST; or a goat, which pointed Him out as in the likeness of sinful flesh, called a sinner, and made so by accusation; or of fowls, turtle doves, denoting his meekness and modesty; and all without spot or blemish signified the purity of His nature and life; and these being burnt with fire express the pain and shame He endured when He bore our sins (NOT His), and the wrath of GOD was poured on Him as fire; the washing of the burnt offering represents the purity of CHRIST'S Sacrifice, being offered up without spot (Heb.9:14. 1 Pet.1:19).
Ezekiel 40:39 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering and the sin offering and the trespass offering. (KJV)
And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side . . . this is still the north gate of the inward court, which had a porch that reached from the outward to the inner gate of it, in which were three little chambers on each side (40:36), and between each chamber was a space of five cubits (40:7), so that there were two such spaces on each side; and in these spaces, some guess that these tables were placed, two on one side, and two on the other.
To slay thereon the burnt offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering . . . the use of the tables was typical of the Sacrifice of CHRIST (40:38), and for the sin offering and trespass offering, which in the Hebrew language signify sin and guilt. They represented CHRIST, who had no sin in His nature, nor ever did any sin in His life (2 Cor.5:21; Heb.4:15; 1 Pet.18-19; 1 Jn.3:5), yet was made sin for His people (2 Cor.5:21); having all their sins laid upon Him (Mat.20:28; Heb.9:12).
Ezekiel 40:40 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables. (KJV)
And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables . . . at the side without . . . if there is any doubt that this means in the outer court, it should be removed by the words as one goeth up, at this ascent. These tables were of stone (40:42), and they stood, two on each side, just before of the steps, for the purpose (40:42) of slaying the sacrifices upon them.
And on the other side, which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables . . . there were two on one side of the gate, and two on the other side of it, meaning the last gate of the porch, in all eight tables; four in the spaces between the little chambers in the porch, and four as you come out of it, on each side of the last gate.
Ezekiel 40:41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices. (KJV)
Four tables were on this side, and four tables were on that side, by the side of the gate . . . these are the same tables, repeated to understand more carefully the situation and use of them; there were four on the right hand, two between the little chambers in the porch, and two on the outside of the innermost gate; and there were four on the left hand, two between the little chambers there, and two on the other side of this gate.
Eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices . . . the eight tables mentioned were for the exact same purpose (40:39). These are tables, not altars.
Ezekiel 40:42 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt offering, of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit high: whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt offering and the sacrifice. (KJV)
And the four tables were of hewn stone . . . the four tables, each four tables, for the prophet speaks of all eight, but calls them four, because they are coupled . . . one group of four on the one side and the other group of four on the other side. Hewn stone, it is very doubtful that these were scrubby, worthless stones, but either best marble, or some stone better than marble, and they are exactly square, a cubit and half every way.
For the burnt offering . . . and also for the sin offering, and for the trespass offering, although they are not mentioned.
Of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit high . . . this was the size of each table.
Whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt offering and the sacrifice . . . the knives with which they killed the creatures offered, and cut them to pieces, and the bowls and basins in which they gathered their blood. These were laid on the tables, as the sacrifices were: and may indicate not only the Sacrifice of CHRIST, but the sins of His people, for which He was wounded and bruised in His Body, and with which He was pierced in His Soul; and where we may look on Him whom we have so pierced, and mourn; and yet rejoice that there is healing by His stripes, pardon by His precious Blood, and atonement by His Sacrifice.
Ezekiel 40:43 And within were hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about: and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering. (KJV)
And within were hooks, a hand broad, fastened round about . . . hooks on which the slaughtered sacrifice might be hanged, while the priest prepared it further, were needed. It is likely that there might were two iron hooks fastened to walls, or the posts of the gate, near the washing room for the sacrifices (40:38), near these tables.
And upon the tables was the flesh of the offering . . . it seems there were also hooks on the table, and the sacrifice was fastened to these hooks, and rested on these stone tables, while the priests cut them into pieces.
Ezekiel 40:44 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers in the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate; and their prospect was toward the south: one at the side of the east gate having the prospect toward the north. (KJV)
And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers . . . without, outside the gate of the inner court,
Were the chambers of the singers . . . several chambers in a row, of the singers, where they kept their instruments and where they stayed during the time of their attendance. Some say these singers are members of Gospel churches, but again, I think these are Jews whose duty and privilege it is to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; which is a part of internal, spiritual, and evangelical worship in the latter days (Eph.5:19-21).
In the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate . . . in that part of the court which lay close to the north gate, where the prophet and his guide now were.
And their prospect was toward the south . . . one row of these chambers, was by the side of the north gate, and these faced the south; north and south being opposite to each other.
One at the side of the east gate, having the prospect toward the north . . . another row of chambers for the singers was in the part of the inner court which was on the side of the east gate, on the north side of it, and so faced the north part of the court.
Ezekiel 40:45 And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward the south, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house. (KJV)
And he said unto me . . . He, who appeared with measuring line and reed (40:3). This Glorious Person (CHRIST) that appeared in a human form, and measured several parts of the Temple, said to the prophet,
This chamber, whose prospect is toward the south . . . the row of chambers that were on the side of the north gate, facing the south. This range of chambers, for this single number refers to the whole row, not just to one specific chamber.
Is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house . . . that see to the keeping of it; observe all the laws and ordinances of GOD'S House, and are careful that the worship of GOD may be kept and preserved, to His glory, and their joint edification.
Ezekiel 40:46 And the chamber whose prospect is toward the north is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the sons of Zadok among the sons of Levi, which come near to the LORD to minister unto him. (KJV)
And the chamber whose prospect is towards the north . . . the row of chambers on the side of the east gate; that side of it that was towards the north, and which the chambers in it faced (40:45).
Is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar . . . for the priests, the keepers (40:45), that take care of the altar, and public worship and that preach the Gospel (Rev.7).
These are the sons of Zadok, among the sons of Levi . . . these Levites, or priests, were of the family of Zadok; who descended from Aaron, and was the eldest house of Aaron, to whom the priesthood belonged. Although it had been usurped a long time by the family of Ithamar (Num.4:28); but, in Solomon's time, Abiathar, of that family, was dispossessed of it (1 Ki.2:26-27), and Zadok (1 Ki.2:35) was placed as high priest.
Which come near to the LORD to minister unto him . . . both priests, preachers and people in the latter days, who have close access to GOD through CHRIST, shall minister before Him in holy things, in praying and preaching the Gospel.
Ezekiel 40:47 So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an hundred cubits broad, foursquare; and the altar that was before the house. (KJV)
So he measured the court . . . the court, the inner court, or court of the priests, according to their several duties, had lodgings in it (40:46).
An hundred cubits long, and an hundred cubits broad, foursquare . . . the area of this court, which was a hundred cubits long and wide; so that it was a perfect square, the same distance east, west, north and south.
Such a court was never was in any Temple before, so that this Temple is still future.
And the altar that was before the house . . . the altar of burnt offering, which stood before the Temple, in the midst of the inward court; so that it could be seen by all in the inward court and chambers; and even by all in the outward court, through the several gates, which directly opened and led to it. The dimensions of this altar were now taken, and are given in (43:13). The altar, here only the place of the altar is mentioned, the measuring of it is found Ezekiel 43:13-18. This altar was placed in the very center of this square, in a direct line from the north, east and south gates, and might be seen from the lower courts by those who stood there.
It seems by many that it is here that a new Chapter should begin, because this and the next verse more accurately belong to the next Chapter.
Ezekiel 40:48 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side: and the breadth of the gate was three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side. (KJV)
And he brought me to the porch of the house . . . having passed through the inner court, and measured that, he came to the main part of the Temple; to the porch that led into it. This porch had a large roof, and was a covering both from cold winds and storms, and from the scorching heat of the sun; and was a symbol of CHRIST, the hiding place from the wind and from the tempest of divine justice and vengeance, and the wrath of GOD.
And measured each post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side . . . these posts stood, one on the north side of the porch, and the other on the south, and were each five cubits thick.
And the breadth of the gate was three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side . . . this gate implies CHRIST, the door (Jn.10:1-9).
Ezekiel 40:49 The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; and he brought me by the steps whereby they went up to it: and there were pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side. (KJV)
The length of the porch was twenty cubits . . . from east to west; from the first gate of it to the last; which led directly into the Temple.
And the breadth eleven cubits . . . which may be thus accounted for; two cubits apiece being allowed for each post, and three for each leaf of the door that were hung upon them, and one for the upright post in the middle on which they shut; in all eleven:
And he brought me by the steps whereby they went up to it . . . there was an ascent of seven steps to the several gates that led into the outward court; and another of eight steps, which led from that to the gates of the inner court. There was an ascent from the inner court to the porch of the Temple; but how many steps there were is not said. Some versions say ten steps; another version, eight steps. According to the Mishnah there were twelve in the Second Temple, with whom Josephus agrees. https://www.gotquestions.org/Mishnah-midrash.html
And there were pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side . . . one on the north side, and the other on the south, somewhat like the two pillars of Jachin and Boaz (1 Ki.7:21), in Solomon's Temple.
