And for the breadth of the court, on the west side
On the west end, the upper end of the court, near to which reached the holy of holies:
shall be hangings of fifty cubits:
or twenty five yards and more, so that the court was but half as broad as it was long:
their pillars ten, and their sockets ten;
which was a number proportionate to the hangings, and stood at an equal distance from each other, as the pillars for the sides, at five cubits, or two yards and a half, as commonly computed.
