Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 40:18

_ _ The higher pavement was level with the entrance of the gates, the lower was on either side of the raised pavement thus formed. Whereas Solomon’s temple had an outer court open to alterations and even idolatrous innovations (2 Kings 23:11, 2 Kings 23:12; 1 Chronicles 20:5), in this there was to be no room for human corruptions. Its compass was exactly defined, one hundred cubits; and the fine pavement implied it was to be trodden only by clean feet (compare Isaiah 35:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 40:5-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 40:18

The pavement — That mentioned, Ezekiel 40:17. By the side — That part which lay on each side of the gate, and from thence spread itself toward the chambers, leaving a space of pavement of equal breadth with the porch, or gate in the middle. The length — The length was measured fifty cubits. The inner pavement — The side pavement was laid somewhat lower than this middle pavement, not only for state, but for the more convenient, keeping it clean; so the middle pavement rose with a little convex surface.
