Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 42:20

_ _ wall ... separation between ... sanctuary and ... profane — No longer shall the wall of partition be to separate the Jew and the Gentile (Ephesians 2:14), but to separate the sacred from the profane. The lowness of it renders it unfit for the purpose of defense (the object of the wall, Revelation 21:12). But its square form (as in the city, Revelation 21:16) is the emblem of the kingdom that cannot be shaken (Hebrews 12:28), resting on prophets and apostles, Jesus Christ being the chief corner-stone.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 42:15-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 42:20

Five hundred broad — Each reed was above three yards and an half, so that it was about eight miles round. Thus large were the suburbs of this mystical temple, signifying the great extent of the church in gospel times. It is in part fulfilled already, by the accession of the Gentiles to the church: and will be throughly accomplished, when the fulness of the Gentiles shall come in, and all Israel shall be saved. A separation — To distinguish, and accordingly to exclude, or admit persons, for all might not go in.
