CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
40:12 The space - The rails, which were set up at a cubit distance from the front of these little chambers, on the outside for convenient placing of benches for the priests to sit on. The space - Between the rails, and the chambers.
There were guard alcoves on each side built into the gateway passage. Each of these alcoves was 10-1/2 feet square, with a distance between them of 8-3/4 feet along the passage wall. The gateway's inner threshold, which led to the entry room at the inner end of the gateway passage, was 10-1/2 feet front to back.
The man measured the gateway entrance, which was 17-1/2 feet wide at the opening and 22-3/4 feet wide in the gateway passage.
Then he measured the entire width of the gateway, measuring the distance between the back walls of facing guard alcoves; this distance was 43-3/4 feet.
