    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 40:2

    Set me upon a very high mountain - Mount Moriah, the mount on which Solomon's temple was built, 2 Chronicles 3:1.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 40:2

    By which - Better as in the margin. (compare Ezekiel 43:12).

    As the frame of a city - It is not "a city" which is seen, but a building (the temple and its courts) like a city in its construction, surrounded by massive walls.

    On the south - southward, i. e., on the southern slope, just as the temple actually stood on Mount Moriah. The temple was at the northeast corner of the city - part of the western portion of the city being more to the north, but no part directly north of the temple.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 40:2

    40:2 In the visions of God - By this it appears it was not a corporeal transportation of the prophet. The frame - The portrait of a city. On the south - On the south of the mountain, where the prophet was set.
