And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple
Both of the holy, and the most holy place: cherubim and palm trees, like as were made on the walls;
the doors of both places had the same decorations as the walls of each; (See Gill on Ezekiel 41:18); (See Gill on Ezekiel 41:19); (See Gill on Ezekiel 41:20); and so it was in Solomon's temple, ( 1 Kings 6:32 1 Kings 6:35 ) , a cherub and a palm tree on each leaf, or on each folding of a leaf, according as it would admit of: and there were thick planks upon the face of the porch without;
on the outward front of the porch were some thick wainscot boards, which projected as a cover to the entrance into it; or, as it may be rendered, also on the thick piece of wood in the front of the porch without
F18; which, as Starckius thinks, was a large wooden bar, which shut and held in the folding leaves of the door; and on this, or these thick planks, were cherubim and palm trees.
