And for the gate of the court shall be an hanging of twenty
Which, with the fifteen on each side, make the fifty cubits, the breadth of the court eastward, ( Exodus 27:13 ) , this hanging was better than the rest, much finer and richer;
for it was of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen,
wrought with needle work:
and was of the same as the hangings for the door of the holy place, ( Exodus 26:36 ) this was a figure of Christ, and of the graces of the Spirit in him, and of his bloodshed, sufferings, and death; who is the door into the church, and to the ordinances of it, and leads on to the holy place, and even to the holy of holies, see ( John 10:9 ) ( Hebrews 10:20 )
their pillars shall be four, and their sockets four:
so that the pillars of this court at both sides and each end were sixty, twenty on each side, south and north, and ten at each end, west and east.
