Ezekiel 41:2

Ezekiel 41:2

And the breadth of the door was ten cubits
The temple door: great care is taken to observe and give the dimensions of the doors and gates of various places; to put us in mind of Christ the door and gate into the church, and into fellowship with God: this was as broad again as the door of Solomon's temple; for that was but the fourth part of the wall of it, five cubits, ( 1 Kings 6:1 1 Kings 6:33 ) : and the sides of the door were five cubits on the one side, and five
cubits on the other side;
the side walls of the door, both on the north and south, were five cubits each; which, with the ten, the breadth of the door, made twenty; and is just the breadth of the temple or holy place afterwards given: and he measured the length thereof forty cubits, and the breadth twenty
cubits;
that is, the length of the temple from east to west, and the breadth of it from north to south, were of this measure; which exactly answers to the dimensions of Solomon's temple, a figure of the Gospel church, as this; see ( 1 Kings 6:2 1 Kings 6:17 ) .
