Read Ezekiel 42:12 Using Other Translations

And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward the south was a door in the head of the way, even the way directly before the wall toward the east, as one entereth into them.
as were the entrances of the chambers on the south. There was an entrance at the beginning of the passage, the passage before the corresponding wall on the east as one enters them.
So there was an entrance in the wall facing the doors of the inner block of rooms, and another on the east at the end of the interior walkway.

What does Ezekiel 42:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 42:12

And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward
the south
That is, the doors of these eastern chambers were exactly like to the doors of the southern chambers, as well as to the northern ones: was a door in the head of the way;
or beginning of the way; the door opened into the way of one cubit, and that led into the walk of ten cubits; and such a way and walk were before these eastern chambers as were before the southern and northern ones: even the way directly before the wall toward the east, as one entereth
into them:
or, "also a way before the wall direct, a way to the east, as one goes into them" F2; which seems to describe such a way from under these eastern chambers as were from under the northern or southern chambers, ( Ezekiel 42:9 ) .
