CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
40:17 The outward court - So called in regard of the more inward court, between that where he was, and the temple itself; this court, was the second about the temple. Chambers - Not only lodging rooms for the priests, but also store - houses for tithes and offerings. A pavement - A beautiful floor laid with checker works. The whole floor of this court was thus paved. Thirty chambers - That is, fifteen on the south side of the gate, and fifteen on the north side, built over the pavement.
But do not measure the outer courtyard, for it has been turned over to the nations. They will trample the holy city for 42 months.
