Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

The door of the temple - The door, that is, which led from the porch into the great chamber of the temple. Its posts were “a fourth part of the wall,” or, “five cubits high,” which was, therefore, the height of the doorway.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

So also made he for the door of the temple,.... The holy place:

posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall; which was five cubits, its breadth being twenty, 1 Kings 6:20; this door was a cubit wider than that into the most holy place, 1 Kings 6:31, more entering into the one than into the other; as more go into the church on earth than into the heavenly glory.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

33.The door of the temple — The outer door leading from the porch into the holy place.

A fourth part — Not of the wall, but of the doorway, as in 1 Kings 6:31. This outer door was probably considerably larger than the one leading to the oracle.
