And from the face of the gate of the entrance
That is, from the outward gate as you went into the porch, and was to the east, so called from people's passing and repassing F2 in it; so Jarchi takes it to be the 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: from gate to gate were fifty cubits;
as he measured the breadth of the porch before, ( Ezekiel 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; ( Ezekiel 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.
