    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 40:9

    The porch of the gate - See account of the gates in the plan.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 40:9

    The porch is now measured from north to south in "wide." "The breadth of the entry of the gate" was "ten cubits," made up of the "eight cubits," with "a cubit" for "a post" or pillar on each side Ezekiel 40:11.

    Posts - A projection like a ram's horn; in architecture, a column projecting from the wall with its base, shaft, and capital, or it may be the "base" only Ezekiel 40:16, Ezekiel 40:49. Here "post" represents the lower part of the column. and the dimensions given are those of the section of the base.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 40:9

    40:9 The porch - Probably another porch, or another gate distinct from that, ver. 6. The posts - These were half columns, that from the floor to the height of the wall jetted out, as if one half of the column were in the wall, and the other without, and the protuberance of this half column, was one cubit.
