    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 41:4

    The length thereof, twenty cubits - This is the measurement of the sanctuary, or holy of holies. See G in the plan. This also was the exact measurement of Solomon's temple, see 1 Kings 6:20. This, and the other resemblances here, sufficiently prove that Ezekiel's temple and that of Solomon were on the same plan; and that the latter temple was intended to be an exact resemblance of the former.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 41:4

    The Temple - here is the holy place as distinguished from the most holy, "the Oracle," which is "before" the holy place, inwards.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 41:4

    41:4 Thereof - Of the holy of holies, which was an exact square. Before - Parallel with the breadth of the temple.
