Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 40:2

_ _ visions of God — divinely sent visions.

_ _ very high mountain — Moriah, very high, as compared with the plains of Babylon, still more so as to its moral elevation (Ezekiel 17:22; Ezekiel 20:40).

_ _ by which — Ezekiel coming from the north is set down at (as the Hebrew for “upon” may be translated) Mount Moriah, and sees the city-like frame of the temple stretching southward. In Ezekiel 40:3, “God brings him thither,” that is, close up to it, so as to inspect it minutely (compare Revelation 21:10). In this closing vision, as in the opening one of the book, the divine hand is laid on the prophet, and he is borne away in the visions of God. But the scene there was by the Chebar, Jehovah having forsaken Jerusalem; now it is the mountain of God, Jehovah having returned thither; there, the vision was calculated to inspire terror; here, hope and assurance.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 40:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 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.

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
the visions:
There can be little doubt, that the grand outlines of the description of the temple, in the following extraordinary vision, were taken from that of Solomon's, with all the additions made to it in after ages; and we may suppose that Zerubbabel and the other Jews had respect to it, as far as circumstances would permit, in rebuilding the temple after the captivity. There are, however, many circumstances which conclusively shew, that something infinitely superior to either the first or second temple was intended; and that the external description must be considered as a figure and emblem of spiritual blessings. Probably the more immediate accomplishment of the prophecy will be subsequent to the conversion and restoration of the Jews, the destruction of Gog and Magog, and the pouring out of the Spirit, mentioned at the close of the last chapter; but whether there will be any external forms analogous to these cannot be determined, though in some respects it seems improbable.
