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
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 ) .
