Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 43:12

_ _ whole ... most holy — This superlative, which had been used exclusively of the holy of holies (Exodus 26:34), was now to characterize the entire building. This all-pervading sanctity was to be “the law of the (whole) house,” as distinguished from the Levitical law, which confined the peculiar sanctity to a single apartment of it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 43:7-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 43:12

The law — This is the first comprehensive rule: holiness becomes God's house; and this relative holiness referred to personal and real holiness. The top — The whole circuit of this mountain shall be holy, but the top of it on which the temple stands, shall be most holy.
