And he brought me to the door of the court
Of the inner court, the court of the priests and Levites. Dr. Lightfoot F24 says this was the east gate, and most common way of entrance; and in that gate the sanhedrim used to sit in these times; and there the prophet sees their council chamber painted about with imagery: and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall;
of one of the chambers of the priests and Levites, where they lay.
