Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 41:6

_ _ might ... hold, but ... not hold in ... wall of the house1 Kings 6:6 tells us there were rests made in the walls of the temple for supports to the side chambers; but the temple walls did not thereby become part of this side building; they stood separate from it. “They entered,” namely, the beams of the chambers, which were three-storied and thirty in consecutive order, entered into the wall, that is, were made to lean on rests projecting from the wall.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 41:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 41:6

They might — That the beams of the chambers might have good and firm resting — hold. Had not hold — The ends of the beams were not thrust into the main body of the wall of the temple.

one over another:
Heb. side chamber over side chamber, thirty in order. or, three and thirty times, or feet. We find by Josephus, that around Solomon's temple were chambers three stories high, each story consisting of thirty chambers; which are supposed to have been on the north, south, and east sides of the temple.

and they:

1 Kings 6:6 The nethermost chamber [was] five cubits broad, and the middle [was] six cubits broad, and the third [was] seven cubits broad: for without [in the wall] of the house he made narrowed rests round about, that [the beams] should not be fastened in the walls of the house.
1 Kings 6:10 And [then] he built chambers against all the house, five cubits high: and they rested on the house [with] timber of cedar.

have hold:
Heb. be holden,
1 Peter 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

but:
That is, the beams or supporters, of the chambers were not let into the main wall of the temple; but rested on projections of the outer wall, which became a cubit narrower at every story, leaving a ledge of one cubit, to support the beams.
