Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 42:5

_ _ shorter — that is, the building became narrower as it rose in height. The chambers were many: so “in My Father’s house are many mansions” (John 14:2); and besides these there was much “room” still left (compare Luke 14:22). The chambers, though private, were near the temple. Prayer in our chambers is to prepare us for public devotions, and to help us in improving them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 42:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 42:5

Shorter — At first view it should seem to refer to the length, but indeed it refers to the height of the chambers, of which the lowest chamber was highest, the second lower pitched than the first, yet of greater height than the uppermost between the floor and ceiling.
