Holman Bible Dictionary
Temple annex or columned porches (contrast Ezekiel 42:6 ). The two buildings in Ezekiel 42:1 were apparently constructed “stairstep” style with each floor smaller than the one beneath it. Here the gallery is perhaps the terrace formed by the flat roof of the floor below. Others have suggested the Hebrew refers to underlying rock formations that protruded into the structure.
