Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 46:9

_ _ The worshippers were on the great feasts to pass from one side to the other, through the temple courts, in order that, in such a throng as should attend the festivals, the ingress and egress should be the more unimpeded, those going out not being in the way of those coming in.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 46:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 46:9

Go forth over against it — Perhaps, only to prevent all jostling and confusion.
