    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 40:7

    And every little chamber was one reed - These were the chambers of the buildings which were within the inclosure of the temple round the court, and these chambers appear to have been numerous. See the map, which has been carefully copied from that of Calmet.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 40:7

    Every little chamber - The guard-chambers (a) for the use of the Levites who kept watch in the temple.

    The threshold of the gate by the porch - The second threshold in the easternmost gate-way (c).

    Porch - Hebrew אולם 'ûlâm; the Septuagint: αἰλάμ ailam; Vulgate: vestibulum. The word probably means porch or portico, connected with "ail" post or pillar.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 40:7

    40:7 Chamber - Along the wall of the porch were chambers, three on one side, and three on the other, each one reed square. Five cubits - A space of two yards and one half between each chamber, either filled with some neat posts or pillars, or it may be quite void. Within - The inward and outward threshold, were of the same measures, and curiously arched over head from side to side, and end to end, which was from east to west.
